On Friday March 20, 2020, heaven gained an angel like no other, Carlee Ann Holson, age 83.

Carlee spent her final days surrounded by family; something she was always so grateful for.

She is survived by her husband of 65 years, Eddie Bo; her nine children, Eddie, Wanda (Gary-deceased), Danny, David (Brenda), Marianne (Dave), Michael (Rhonda), Richard (Chris), Steven and Gregory (Lamb), and her half-sister, Paula.

Despite being the only child of Evelyn (Nana) Martin, her family grew large as she was a proud grandmother to 27 and great-grandmother to 26.

Carlee and Ed’s first date to Woody’s night club started a love they shared for dancing and music.

Through a marriage of 65 years and working in their restaurants for almost 40 years, Carlee showed her endless devotion.

She served her guests as she did her family, creating conversation with regular customers and welcoming new ones.

She enjoyed the company of others, especially the bond with her best friend, Mona, who married Ed’s good friend, Tooie, who became family to the nine Holson kids.

Carlee can simply be described as a great mom and wife, who was selfless and able to see goodness in all people.

She had an amazing strength and was never consumed by the challenges that beheld her.

Her faith remained as she held a strong trust in God and spread His love with everything she did. Carlee carried herself with an admirable simplicity, an attitude to live life for others and an appreciation for everything.

Due to the COVID-19 virus, services and burial are private. A memorial service will be announced at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to: Delaware Hospice, 100 Patriots Way, Milford, Delaware 19963.
