Mary was born on May 18, 1944 to J.P. Holder and Vera Lee Frey in Shreveport, Louisiana and passed away on Wednesday, January 12, 2022 in Stonewall, Louisiana.

Mary was a resident of Frierson and a hairdresser. She owned and operated Ver Nell Beauty School for over 40 years. She also worked for Willis-Knighton South for many years and considered her co-workers in the emergency room her family. She loved her Lord and singing gospel songs. Elvis Presley gospel was her favorite. Her family, particularly her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, were the joy in her life! She would hide their Christmas gifts and make them have a scavenger hunt to find them no matter how long it took.

Mary is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Sylvan “Red” Nielsen; brother, James “Bubba” Holder; and sister, Patricia “Pat” Ebert. Left to cherish her memory are her daughters, Kimberly N. Bowlin (Elton) and Temberly N. Amox (Pat); grandchildren, Hannah Rhoades and husband, Dusty, James C. Bowlin “Red” and wife, Stephanie, Gunar Ramsey and wife, Julie Ann, Michael Shane Ramsey and wife, Brianna; great-grandchildren, Andrew, Cheyenne, Rowel, Hadlyn, Audrey, and Karley; brothers, John Holder and Frank Holder; numerous nieces and nephews and other extended family and friends.

The family would like to express special thanks to her Willis-Knighton South Emergency Room family.
