On Wednesday, February 12, 2020 Verna Jean Holbrook (Radcliff) went home to be with the Lord. Verna was born in Columbus, Ohio on May 17, 1930 to Scott and Maxine (Hoover) Radcliff. Preceding her in death are husband Herbert “Glenn” Holbrook, son-in-law Garland “Denny” Schlichter. She grew up with a wonderful sister SueAnn (Bobby) Keller; and was adored by her three children Jodi (Don) Combs, Glenna (Garland) Schlichter and Scott (Bobbi) Holbrook. She was a beloved grandmother to nine grandchildren-Hope Holbrook, Lacy (Gerald) Crayton, Heather (Shawn) Hegarty, Tyson (Suzanne) McConnaughey, Shaun (JKenni) McConnaughey, Brett (Trinka) Combs, Doug (Diane) Combs, Brandon (Kara) Schlichter, and Benjamin (Tara) Schlichter and has along with 14 great grandchildren. She faithfully attended and served at Scioto Chapel Church for much of her life. One of her favorite ways to volunteer was help in creating the noodles that were distributed by the church throughout Pickaway County-you might have even tasted her noodles at Pumpkin Show once or twice, too. Verna was a diehard NASCAR fan, cheering on Jeff Gordon for as often as she could watch him on TV. She loved living in Jackson Township for several decades on a farm she had with her family. We are grateful to all of the compassionate neighbors she had who checked on her at her home in later years. Funeral arrangements have been made at Wellman Funeral Home for Thursday, February 20, 2020. Calling hours are noon to 2:00 p.m. with the service immediately following. Conducting funeral services are Rev. Mike Holbrook and Perry Fausnaugh. The burial service will be held at Jackson Township Cemetery.
