In Loving Memory Of Shelly M. Holden was born on March 16, 1968 in Detroit, MI to Josephine Holden and Eddie Walker. Shelly accepted Christ at an early age. She attended the Detroit Public Schools system and graduated from Cooley High School in 1987. After high school, Shelly attended Lewis College of Business and Wayne State University where she studied business receiving her business associate degree. In 1989, she gave birth to her first child, Darius Holden. After conceiving her baby boy, she began to find herself through various employments before landing her dream job with DPS in 1996. Shelly was employed with DPS for 23 years as an Administrative Assistant Level IV until her resignation in August of 2019. She joined in holy matrimony on November 6, 2016 to John H. Wallace III for five years until his untimely death on August 21, 2021. She was previously married to Joseph W. Heard and to this union her child, Keiara Heard, was born. Shelly enjoyed the beauty of nature. She would admire well-kept homes and gardened yards. She loved planting and making her house a home and while doing what she loved to do she was also fighting cancer. It was due to the loss of her husband when she became too weak to continue life without him. Shelly departed this life on September 13, 2021. She was preceded in death by her “Honey Bunny”, John Wallace; her brother, Marcus Holden; her aunt, Ernestine Jordan; and her aunt, Delorse Holden. She leaves to cherish her memories: her daughter, Keiara Heard; son, Darius Holden; her three grandchildren, Mari, Marcel, Kyell; her mother, Josephine Daniel; her brother, Joseph Daniel, Jr. (Mya); her aunt, Margaret Daniel and children, Pashawn Johnson, Otis Daniel, Mario Daniel; and a host of nephews, nieces, cousins, and friends.
