A messenger angel sent by God came on Thursday morning, March 8, 2018, to deliver a message to Elaine Jowers at Sentara Leigh Memorial Hospital. The message: Elaine, I have watched over you and cared for you for all the years of your life. I have walked with you through all of life’s joys and all of its sorrows and pains. I was with you through sickness and I stayed by you in your hospital room. I have blessed and kept you for nearly four score (80 years) and, because of your acceptance of and belief in My Son, Jesus Christ; salvation belongs to you. It is now time for you to come home and rest. She answered God’s call and went home to be with God and His saints. What a glorious homecoming and a joyous reunion! Elaine entered her rest and joined the church triumphant to begin her walk around her new homeland, her Father’s heaven. The youngest of six children born to Ashley and Nettie Lee Shambry, she was born on March 27, 1938 in Norfolk, VA. She was educated in the Norfolk Public Schools System. Elaine was a homemaker and a lifelong member of the First Baptist Church of Lamberts Point, Norfolk, VA. In recent years, she participated in the Sentara PACE Program for Senior Citizens where she made many friends and participated in numerous programs and projects. She was a quiet soul who enjoyed church, listening to music, being with family and friends, and doing Word Search puzzles alone and with her son-in-law, Bennie. Both her parents, her husband Jack Jowers, her three brothers, Ashley, Roland, and Edward Shambry; two sisters, Evelyn Avery and Maxine Scott predeceased Elaine. In addition, her oldest daughter, Cheryl Scott and two of her great-grandchildren, Madison and Noel, predeceased her. Left to cherish her memory are her loving daughter and caregiver, Frederica Perry (Patrick); nine grandchildren, Andre and Antoine Scott of Norfolk, VA; Randolph Scott (Crystal) of Atlanta, GA; Shambri Myers (Ronald) of Chesapeake, VA; Brittany Perry (Aevon) of Virginia Beach, VA; Patrick Perry (Katrina) and Nicholas Perry of Norfolk, VA; Romy Whitaker of Portsmouth, VA and Tarika Whitaker of Chesapeake, VA. She leaves eleven great-grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends will truly miss her. We will cherish her memory forever in our hearts. “Another soldier gone to get a great reward; She fought the fight and kept the faith, and now gone home to God. She fought until she fell on life’s great battlefield, and then she heard the Master say “Lay down your sword and shield”.

Linda My deepest Sympathy goes out to the family, losing a love one in death is a very trying time. Please find comfort in knowing what the bible says about the opportunity of seeing our dear love ones again under the very best conditions @ Isaiah 25:8 . Please also go to for more encouragement from God's word for our dear love ones .
