  • Notes  Died:
    • STATESBORO, Ga. - The 9th of 10 children, born to Florence Eva Brant Mock and Turner M. Mock, on November 28, 1921 in Screven County, GA, Julia Earleen outlived her parents and all her siblings On December 11, 2017 Julia Earleen's "Victory in Jesus" was completed as she transitioned from this world to her "Mansion in The Sky" to forever be with her Lord Jesus and her husband, Nollie, who departed this earth November 5, 2017.

      On December 21, Mrs Julia and Mr Nollie would have been married 77 years. They met in Savannah, GA and were married December 21, 1940. Their life's journey took them to Colorado and Oklahoma during Mr Nollie's time in the Army. Back in Savannah, Earleen worked as the Lab Tech for Starland Dairies and they joined Immanuel Baptist Church where, among other services, "Earleen" was a GA leader with a strong heart for missions; taught Sunday School; and, worked as the Kitchen Manager for many years before she and Mr Nollie became founding members in 1959 of Memorial Baptist Church and life-long members of the "Geritol Gypsies." She was a GA leader, involved in the Kitchen, and sang in the Choir. One Summer during Music Week at Ridgecrest (where she cooked for the Choir), the accommodations for the choir were less than desirable, so the Hollands purchased a house in Black Mountain, NC - directly across the Interstate from Ridgecrest Conference Center so the choir would have a known place to stay each summer. For varying weeks from May to November each year since 1987 the Hollands have been in NC; and served at Ridgecrest since early 2000's with Julia volunteering in Dining and Catering Services. Ridgecrest Baptist Church and Swannanoa First Baptist Church served as their "home-away-from-home" Church. Julia especially enjoyed preparing supplies and serving at the "Queen For A Day" ministry at Swannanoa FBC and volunteered at Swannanoa Valley Christian Ministries each week sorting donations.

      In 1977 the Hollands moved from Savannah to Richmond Hill for several years where their church membership and service was with Corinth Baptist Church before returning to Savannah and Memorial Baptist. After selling The Holland House Restaurant on 68th Street in Savannah, the Hollands moved to Effingham County; helped establish a mission and later joined and served in Rincon First Baptist Church before moving to Statesboro in 1999. After visiting many churches looking for a strong Worship Choir, they joined First Baptist Church. She continued singing with the Senior Choir into her 90's until physical issues prevented her participation. During the years at FBC, Julia went on numerous Mission Trips many of which utilized her skills in the kitchen. Those skills were also used in Statesboro, working with food services at FBC up until early 2017; the last area of service being handing out pizza to the children during Wednesday Night Family Dinners.

      Another area of service in Statesboro was at Worn Threads where she sorted donations Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday each week. On Wednesdays she could be found at Southern Manor Retirement Inn where she helped Mildred in the Beauty Shop. Mildred Mongin and Ralph Cowart have continued to do "Mrs Earl's" hair since she and Mr Nollie became residents of The Gardens at Southern Manor in April 2017.

      For the daughters in Statesboro, Joy Stritikus and Jan Meinhardt (Ken), the woman, they lovingly nicknamed "The Sergeant", will be greatly missed. Her absence will also be felt by grandchildren, John (Amy) Stritikus of Dickson, TN; Mary (Bill) Slavin of Guntersville, AL; Stephen Stritikus of Birmingham, AL; and Ken Meinhardt, II (Jennifer) of Statesboro; Great Grandchildren; Great-Great Grandchildren; Nieces and Nephews; Great Nieces and Nephews; and Great-Great Nieces and Nephews.

      Honorary Pallbearers will be John Stritikus, Bill Slavin, Stephen Stritikus, and nephews: David Mock, Mike Mock, Marvin Wallace, Ralph Jeffers, DeWayne Jeffers, Tommy Cauthen, Mack Beasley, Jim Beasley, Jimmy Lee, Joe Lee, Bobby O'Neal, Billy O'Neal, Jerry Rogers, Victor Love, Keith Love, and Steve Browning; and the Open Door Sunday School Class of FBC. A private interment will be held.

      The Witness to the Resurrection Service will be Monday, December 18 at 11 am at First Baptist Church Statesboro, GA. Visitation will follow in Perry Fellowship Hall during lunch - honoring Mrs Julia's service in food services - to which everyone is invited.

      In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to First Baptist Church, 108 N Main, Statesboro, GA 30458 for the Building Fund or Lottie Moon Missions Offering; or to the charity of one's choice.
