BREWER - Christina G. (Pinkham) Holcomb, 71, passed away peacefully September 29, 2019, at a Bangor hospital, with family at her bedside after a two month long struggle with complications following major abdominal surgery. Born in Ellsworth on February 10, 1948, she was the daughter of George H. Pinkham and Isabelle L. (Cowie) Pinkham. She was a graduate of Ellsworth High School. She is survived by her husband of 49 years, Joel Holcomb, daughters Jennifer Holcomb, Catherine Brooks, Nicole Holcomb, and four grandchildren.
Chris was a retired CNA who always treated her patients like family. She was also the consummate homemaker and loved to prepare large meals for guests. She was always asking “wouldn’t you like more of this or that.” She enjoyed cooking, playing scrabble or dominoes with friends, and playing the piano. She was an active member of the Veazie Congregational Church, participating in many of the church suppers.
Chris especially loved Scotland and the UK, since her mother was from there and all her relatives on her mother’s side still live there. Chris had visited there several times as a child, and was fortunate to have a chance to live there for over three years while her husband was stationed there with the US Navy in the 1970’s.
A memorial service for Chris will be held 1:30 p.m., Saturday, October 26, 2019, at the Veazie Congregational Church, 1404 State Street, Veazie, followed by a reception at the church. Condolences to the family may be expressed at BrookingsSmith.com
