Mozelle Fain Carnes was born Aug. 21, 1935, to Daisy Lankford Carnes and Olden Evelyn (Ebb) Carnes Sr., the second of two children. She died Sept. 6, 2013.
She worked for Dr. Jack Griffin as a dental hygienist from 1958 until he died and Dr. Thomas L. Brown bought his practice. She began working for Dr. Brown in 1969 and worked there, Monday through Wednesday, until she cleaned her last set of teeth Aug. 21.
She also worked as a hygienist for Dr. Bailey Crockarell in Jackson from 1964 until his retirement in 2005. She truly "lived to work and worked to live." This year marked her 55th as a hygienist.
She was predeceased by her parents; her brother, Ebb Carnes Jr.; and her husband of more than 58 years, Talmadge Holder, whom she married March 3, 1954. She had her eye on him from the time she was in seventh grade, when she saw him washing the windows outside her classroom; she told her friend that she would marry him one day.
She is survived by her son, Andy and daughter-in-law Diane and her daughter Dixie Holder Turk and son-in-law, Earnest.
She also is survived by grandchildren, Brandy Turk Huskins (Chris), Rachel Turk Lewis (Jeffrey), JD Talmadge Holder and Crystal Holder Collis; and great-grandchildren, Cam, Lily Grace and Sylvie Kate Huskins; Charlie Drake Lewis; Hunter JD Holder; Daisy Holder; and Andrew Collis.
She was a devout Christian who loved the Lord. She attended and was the song leader at Central Methodist Church. When not cleaning teeth, she loved to cook. She planted a large garden every year, followed by much canning and freezing. She loved quilting and to go "antiquing."
In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to Central Methodist Church, 174 Central Road, Eatonton, GA 31024.
The family received friends before a graveside service Sept. 8 at 4pm at Friendship Church in Eatonton, with Pastor Carol Davis officiating. Andy Holder gave the welcome and opening words. Pastor Wendall Thomas gave a message and Dr. Thomas L. Brown gave a special tribute. The Central Methodist Choir and her daughter-in-law, Diane, sang her favorite hymns.
