Vera was born on February 17th, 1939 in Talihina, Oklahoma to Flora (Crites) and Elmer O'Bryan. Vera was an all around great Christian lady. She was known by many and loved by all. She loved her family and friends and enjoyed get togethers and cook outs, as Vera loved to cook good ole home cooked meals. Vera worked as a R.N. at the VA and had a passion for helping people. She married Cecil Holcomb in July, 1989 and they "completed" each other, as their relationship is a true testimony in itself. Cecil was a pastor for many years and Vera was by his side always.
