BIRCH TREE, MO - Governor Holden's mother, 77-year-old Wanda Mae Holden, has died at home in southeast Missouri.

The governor issued a statement yesterday saying he remembers his mother as someone who never shied away from a challenge.  He described her as having great energy and said she worked hard to provide her children with an education and confidence.

Holden's mother was a native of Kansas City.  She moved to rural Birch Tree after marrying Robert Holden in 1948. 

Visitation is this evening from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Duncan Funeral Home in Mountain View.

The funeral will be at 10 o'clock tomorrow at the Holden farm in Shannon County, with burial at Corinth Cemetery.
