I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. 2 Timothy 4:7-8
Evangelist Julia Denise Walker “Niecy” entered peacefully into her permanent home “A building of God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens” on Saturday, October 8th, 2022, at the sweet age of 70 surrounded by her loving family.
Julia Denise Holmes Walker was born on August 30th, 1952, in Waycross, Ga. to the late Leroy Alfred Holmes and Julia Mae Cooper Holmes. She attended the Waycross Public School System and graduated from Waycross High School in 1970. It was shortly after graduating high school that Evangelist Walker began her career in the food service business. She made her start at McDonald St. School in Waycross, Georgia. She eventually ventured to Fellowship Nursing Home in Valdosta, Ga., and served local churches and prisons in surrounding counties as head cook. She also had a successful catering business “Sister-to-Sister Catering”. Evangelist Walker had a heart of service. It’s something that was instilled in her from her mother. Her joy was cooking, hosting events, serving her family, friends, and the community.
Although cooking and serving people was a joy to Evangelist Walker, her ultimate joy was telling others about her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She accepted Christ at an early age, and later accepted a higher calling in the kingdom as “Evangelist”. Early in her evangelism career, Evangelist Walker enjoyed going out sharing the gospel and doing door-to-door ministry. It wasn’t out of the norm to find Evangelist Walker singing, reading God’s word, praying, and doing all she could to upbuild the kingdom of God. Evangelist Walker also enjoyed spending time with her New Beginning’s Prayer Ministry Family. She was a strong woman of faith who overcame many challenges in her life. Anytime a moment presented itself for Evangelist Walker to encourage, inspire, or motivate someone with her testimony, she gladly and boldly did it with a smile on her face. She was truly a woman of service and a giver to many.
In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by a sister, Verna Pack, two brothers, Leroy Holmes, and Edward Holmes “Lamar”. Those left to cherish her memory includes one beautiful daughter; Sherryl Scott (Elson Scott); two special granddaughters: Ebonye Martin (Marcus) and Keshona Williams (Antuawn); two sisters: Phoebe Dunbar (Franklin) and Vanessa McCurry; one brother: Charles Holmes (Carol) of Dallas, Tx.; one sister-in-law: Debra Holmes; one uncle: Eddie Cooper Sr. (Cara); two special God daughters: De’Kira Sallet and Addison Frieson; a special set of kids that she took as her own: Leon, Rosalyn, and Kena Boyd; a special nephew: Bra’Shaud Holmes; a special niece: Cynthia Mobley and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
