Audrey Young Holley

Audrey Young Holley, 88, of Rocky Mount passed away peacefully Wednesday, May 6, 2020 after a long and courageous battle with Alzheimer’s disease. She was preceded in death by her husband of 65 years, Allen J. Holley. She was born near Ferrum to the late Harry H. and Lessie Wagner Young.  She is survived by daughter and son-in-law Carol and Tim Bussey and sister-in-law Ruby H. Sumner and husband Carlton. Also surviving are two nieces, nephew and their families. Audrey was a dedicated, compassionate nurse who worked at Franklin Memorial Hospital, for Dr. Frank Dudley at Glade Hill Clinic and Eldercare of Rocky Mount. A member of Rocky Mount Baptist Church, she attended faithfully and sang in the choir until her health no longer allowed her to do so. The family would like to extend their sincere appreciation and love to Patty and Larry Toler and each member of the staff at Red Oak Manor where Audrey had been a resident for the past 10 years. The challenges we faced have been made easier thanks to their excellent care, support and friendship. There will be a memorial service for Allen and Audrey at a later date. The family respectfully requests no food or flowers but please consider donations to Rocky Mount Baptist Church or the Alzheimer’s Association. Online condolences may be shared with the family at
