Obituary of {subject.fullNameWithPrefixAndSuffix}

Quietly and peacefully, God called our loved one to eternal rest, Sunday, December 10, 2017. Born on November 7, 1938 in Brooklyn, New York, Sylvia Louise Howell was the daughter of the late Louis and Veola Morehead.

Sylvia was the widow of Lonnie Roosevelt Howell and was preceded in death by her eldest son, Lorenzo L. Howell.

She retired as an Eligibility Worker from The City of Chesapeake Department of Social Services in 1992. She loved the Lord, collecting porcelain figurines of angels and was lovingly known as our “travelnista”.

Sylvia leaves to cherish her loving memories to: her beloved and devoted son, Kenneth F. Howell; one daughter-in-law, Sharon L. Howell both of Chesapeake, Virginia; one grandson, Timothy K. Howell of Virginia Beach, Virginia; one sister, Anna Cole of Charlotte, North Carolina; one brother, Elbert Morehead of Brooklyn, New York, and a host of nieces, nephews and friends.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude for every act of kindness and love during this bereavement time. May the Grace and mercies of the Lord be yours forever. Kenneth and Sharon
