Johnnie Ruth Holcomb
Johnnie Holcomb, 53, who had become a spokesperson for Arkansas women’s health and breast cancer survivors, died April 26, 2001, at her home in Little Rock. Through her example as a fighter in the war against breast cancer, Ms. Holcomb helped many women practice prevention, have mammograms and receive treatment when the disease was detected.
A vice president of Stephens Inc., Ms. Holcomb joined the company in 1976 while she was a law student at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. She served as a resource for Stephens associations, explored potential investment banking opportunities and assisted in the development of solutions and customized financing for clients. This involved the creation of investment banking products, negotiating offerings and completing underwritings in the debt markets. She was known as a clearinghouse and source of projected thinking, support and analysis.
In her 20 years of investment banking, she was involved in many complex financial transactions, which included energy and resource recovery, real estate, healthcare, education, housing, financial institutions and government financing. Ms. Holcomb earned a bachelor’s degree in marketing from the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville and a Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
A winner of Top 100 Women in Arkansas in 1995 and 1996, Ms. Holcomb became a judge in that awards program. She was a founding and charter member of the International Women’s Forum-Arkansas Chapter, the University of Arkansas Medical System Community Advisory council and the Worthen Bank Professional Women’s Advisory Board. She served on four committees for the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and was a former president of the Network for Executive Women. She was a committee chair and active member of the Arkansas Bar Association. Other boards on which she participated were the Centers for Youth and Family Board of Directors, the Stephens YWCA, the Arkansas Community Foundation Board of Directors, Nonprofit Resources and the Old State House Board of Directors.
A Susan G. Komen Foundation board member since the mid-1990s, Ms. Holcomb embraced the cause of breast cancer prevention even before the disease affected her personally. But it was her leadership on the Governor’s Breast Cancer Control Advisory Board from 1998 through 2001 that opened the doors of education, diagnosis and treatment for thousands of women in the state. In the past few years, she became a media spokesperson for breast cancer prevention, early detection and treatment for all women in Arkansas, regardless of their inability to pay. She recently was honored with the Josetta Wilkins Breast Cancer Award for her work in outreach and education.
In a 1999 editorial for a statewide business publication, Johnnie said, “I am a fighter and a breast cancer survivor. Much of the ammunition I’ve used to combat cancer these past few years came from my Southern upbringing and the lessons I’ve learned in the investment business.”
Ms. Holcomb is survived by a wide circle of friends; her mother, Sadie Holcomb of Dallas, formerly of Booneville; her sisters, Rita Emmons of Dallas, Carolyn Pittman and her husband John Pittman of Little Rock and Dawn Harris and her husband Jim Harris of Russellville; her brother Ben Holcomb of Memphis, Texas; her nieces Laura Holcomb of Little Rock, Tanner Harris of Russellville and Brandi and Sky Holcomb of Texas; her nephews Steven Emmons of Dallas, Brad Holcomb of Lubbock, Texas, Tillman Pittman and his wife Amy of Fort Hood, Texas, Harrison Pittman and his wife Susan of Little Rock, and Barrett and Beau Harris of Russellville.
