Remembering Our Mother
After eighty (80) years on this earth, Mom entered into eternal rest on Tuesday morning, January 2. 2018.  She leaves a legacy of love that will last through her children:  Deborah Allen, Veronica Simms (E. Ricardo), Horace, Jr.  (Towanda), Andriola (Michelle), one grandson, Wayne Allen, Jr., and one great granddaughter, Jada Simms.

“Sister” who she was affectionately called by her only surviving sibling, Charlotte Denson has cherished and loved her all the days of her life.  Mom’s passing has left a void in each of our lives, but we know that she is in an eternal home where she can always feel free without limited mobility.

Her parents were Harold and Mozell Cornick, and her other siblings were James Cornick and Allean Green; one grandson, Armonte preceded her passing.

Mom devoted most of her time to caring for her children, and we are appreciative that she raised us to be the adults we are today. Being a mother is a hard and rewarding job, and she was definitely great at it. Devoting much of her time and energy to caregiving continued to be her passion even after her children had left home.  She was an active member of Shiloh Baptist Church and served on the Usher Board until she became ill.

She is survived by her four children, a sister, grandson, great granddaughter and an extended family that includes a host of cousins, nieces, nephews and friends who dearly have known her as Aunt Blanche, Ms. Blanche, or just Friend.

A Celebration of Life service will be held 11am Tuesday, January 9, 2018 at Shivers Funeral Chapel, Smithfield, Va.   Viewing will be held Monday, January 8, 2018 from 4-7pm  at the chapel.  Interment will be in the New Jones Grove Baptist Church, Windsor, Va.  Professional services are entrusted to Shivers Funeral Chapel.
