Hilda Flye Holster, 98, passed away peacefully Saturday morning of December 28, 2019, at Wilson Pines Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Wilson. Hilda was born in Edgecombe County on November 6, 1921. She was predeceased by her parents, Ronald and Elsie Vick Flye and by her husband of sixty-one years, Henry P. Holster.
Hilda is survived by her five children; Robert Holster and wife, Carlotta of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Susan Holster Ellis and husband, Larry of Elm City, Stephen Holster and wife, Joy of Williamston, Ruth Ann Holster Myers and husband, David of Bailey, and Elizabeth Holster Squillacote and husband, Steven of Ormond Beach, Florida; nine grandchildren, Andrew Holster, Brett Holster, Sherry Ellis Harris, Kristina Ellis-Godoy, Courtney Holster Simmons, Jacob Holster, Chelsea Squillacote Dahle, Steven “Chip” Squillacote and Michael Squillacote; and by nine great-grandchildren, Lauren Holster, Henry Holster, Parks Harris, Paul Harris, Isabella Godoy, Elijah Godoy, Savannah Simmons, Hali Dahle and Liam Dahle.
Hilda was the military wife of Lt. Col. Henry P. Holster, and the couple retired in Ormond Beach, Florida. Hilda moved to Wilson in 2006 after the death of her husband, who was fondly known as Bud. She became a member of Wilbanks Christian Church in Elm City, and all who knew Hilda loved and respected her for her grace and sweet spirit as well as for her steadfast faith in her Savior, Jesus Christ. When sharing how she would like to be remembered, she wrote the following: “I have been loving and caring in my relationships with others and have done my best in all circumstances.” Hilda will be sorely missed by her loving family and friends.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial gifts be made to Wilbanks Christian Church, 6128 NC Hwy 42, Elm City North Carolina 27822 or the Hope Station, PO Box 2164, Wilson, North Carolina 27894, charities that Hilda supported for many years.
