"ALL night and ALL day ANGELS are watching over the Howell family"
"May the works his done speak for him, may the life he lived speak for him, may the services he gave speak for him...when Johnnie is resting in his grave and there's nothing to be said; may the life Johnnie lived speak for him."
On Monday, September 21, 2020 the gentle and quiet frame of Johnnie Howell, Sr., received his angel wings at the Vidant Medical Center in Greenville, NC. Johnnie adored his beautiful wife, loved his children and grandchildren and always made sure his sisters were taken care of.
The Howell Family has finalized their final act of love for their beloved husband, father, grandfather and brother. A walk-thru viewing will take place on Sunday, September 27, 2020 starting precisely at five o'clock until seven o'clock in the evening at the New Bethel Missionary Baptist Church, Hertford, NC. On Monday, September 28, 2020 at one o'clock in the afternoon the Celebration of Life Service will take place at the New Bethel Missionary Baptist Church, Hertford, NC. Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic that we are encountering during this time, ALL participants attending the walk-thru viewing as well as the Celebration of Life Service will be required to wear a face mask and practice social distancing.
