Carol A. Holohan, of West Grove, PA, passed away on Tuesday, January 12, 2021 at Christiana Hospital. Carol was the wife of the late Albert X. Holohan, who predeceased her in November of 2004.
Born in Philadelphia, Carol was the daughter of the late Charles Maggi, Sr. and the late Adelaide G. Gaynor.
Carol spent her childhood in the city before moving to the Philadelphia suburbs where she married and raised her family. There she remained a “South-Philadelphian” at heart sharing the traditions and memories of her youth with her children: Joe’s Water Ice, New Year’s Eve dimes on the windowsills and pots/pans celebrations, the Mummers and American Bandstand to name only a few. All the while making new, treasured memories with her family: vacations at the Jersey Shore (fudgie wudgies, the log flume, Cozy Morely’s), the best Christmases any kids could have, homemade bean soup with dumplings, family dinners at Walbers on the Delaware and the Longhorn Ranch (the original in Glen Mills). She was the family cheerleader—swim meets, baseball/softball games, track meets and football. Sunday night trips to BINGO were her escape when her kids were small, but all got to participate in that magic with her at one point or another.
As her family grew with the additions of son and daughters-in-law so did Carol’s heart…almost bursting when grandchildren and great grandchildren arrived. She adored all of her grandpups too over the years and the “diaper-free” babysitting time spent with them. She was always exceedingly generous to her family. QVC will surely miss Carol’s patronage, but nothing will compare to the loss her family will feel day in and day out without her in their lives. The memories called out here and many, many more that remain in their hearts will eventually bring peace. May all of Carol’s friends over the years also find the same peace when remembering the time spent together.
Carol is survived by her two sons, Anthony Holohan and Kevin Holohan (Kathya); her daughter, Cindy Kunkel (Billy); four grandchildren; two great grandchildren.
Due to pandemic restrictions, a memorial service will be scheduled for a later date. Once service details become available, our website will be updated accordingly.
