DUBLIN – Anna Mae Laws Bowman Whitt, 82, of Dublin, Va. died Wednesday, July 11, 2007 at her home. The Lord called Mom to her heavenly home where she will spend eternity with God and will sing with the angels. She humbly served the Lord on this earth and was such a blessing to her family and to all who knew her. She worked hard to give her children a good home where she taught us values based upon the Bible. We were taught to sing the old gospel songs that her mother had taught her as a child. Mom often told me that she had come to know the Lord as a young girl and that He was so close she could almost touch Him and now she can do just that. I know that the Lord was Mom’s best friend and she never doubted his love and mercy even during her lengthy illness and suffering.
Mom was born to Elbert Laws and Nola Simpson Laws of Jonesboro, Tenn. on Aug. 2, 1924 and was one of seven children. Awaiting her in heaven is her first husband and the father of her children, Charles Emory Bowman, one son, Emory “June” Bowman and daughter, Shirley Browning. She will also be met in her heavenly home by her beloved parents, her brothers, Charlie, Henry, John and Sammy Laws along with her sisters Lula Hankle and Jo Bess Hale. They will all welcome her home. But greatest of all, she will look upon the face of Jesus.
Mom leaves to cherish her memory and to follow her example, her husband, Donald Whitt of the home, daughter, Louise Roseberry of Alliance, Ohio, Emma Altizer of Dublin, Va., Linda Sylmar of Pulaski, Freda O’Neal of Draper, Marvin “Tiny”Bowman of Dublin, Barbara Hancock of Pulaski and David Bowman of Newbern. She also leaves to follow in her footsteps, thirteen grandchildren, twelve great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.
Mom would like her dear friends, neighbors and church family to know how much your loving kindness, cards, visits and prayers has meant to her and a special thank-you to her pastor/brother and friend Ernie Depew.
A graveside service will be held Thursday at 11 a.m. from the Roselawn Memorial Gardens in Princeton, West Virginia with Ernie Depew officiating. Mom always taught us to rejoice when a saint gains her reward, therefore we will “Celebrate Her Life” at the Community Christian Church in Newbern on Thursday night at 7 p.m. Flowers are appreciated or in lieu of flowers donations in her memory may be made to the Community Christian Church in Newbern or to the Christian ministry of your choice.

WORRELL

David

Ammen;

 

RADFORD – David Ammen Worrell, age 77, of Radford died Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2005 in Carilion New River Medical Center. City councilman and Vice Mayor David Worrell truly believed he could make a difference. He devoted his non-working hours and life to serving the people of Radford in any way he could find to be involved. A life-long resident of Radford, Worrell graduated from the old high school, then attended Concord College and Radford College, now Radford University. He came by his devotion to public service naturally: his father, the late G. W. Worrell, was editor and publisher of the Radford Record newspaper. He was often called “Chief”, an honorary title from his 22 years of service with the Radford Volunteer Fire Department and the Rescue Squad. He served from 1974 to 1980 as a member of the Radford School Board, and began his work as a city councilman in 1982. Except for a two year absence, after running for and losing the mayoral race in 1990, Worrell has continued his council position, this term being elected by the panel as Vice Mayor. Though he was regularly on the short end of 4-1 council votes on many issues. Worrell felt strongly about representing the people he felt were not being heard in the community, with special emphasis on those living in the West End of the city. He pioneered a series of community input sessions at various locations throughout the area, listening to complaints, needs and requests from anyone who wanted to have a say. And he followed-up by trying to get answers or action for “his people.” His 1992 campaign to regain his council seat proclaimed that he was “willing to work, and most of all, ready to listen!” Among his battles was strong opposition to a non-annexation agreement with Montgomery County for cooperative development along Virginia route 177, and later to the planned move of Radford’s hospital from the city to county land across I-81, outside the city. It is ironic that he died in the care of that new hospital, though his initial trip to the hospital was at Radford Community on Friday, Jan. 29th. He felt ill, but the findings were serious-a burst colon. He remained in critical care (CCU) for much of the time, and was moved with all the other patients on Mar. 20 to the new Carilion facility while still in CCU care. He had recently been moved into a surgical care room, happy to be getting stronger. Even while in the CCU, hooked up to machines and tubes, he scribbled a note to his wife, Lois, that read “get me out of here.” Being inactive was unnatural for Worrell. Among Worrell’s other community activities: president of Belle Heth PTA for two years; Fairview Home Board of Directors; Radford Parks and Recreation Commission and the city Planning Commission; member of the Virginia May Lodge AF-AM, Roanoke Scottish Rite and Shriner, and a proud member and past president of the Radford Rotary Club. He was honored with a Paul Harris Fellowship in Rotary this month. He also served as president of the Area Merchants and Professional Association, and was a Little League Basketball coach at one time in his life. He worked in recent years as a sales associate for Taylor Office Supply in Radford. He was active as a deacon, former elder and Sunday school superintendent at Radford Christian Church. Surviving are his wife Lois K. Worrell, Radford, a son David Ammen Worrell II, Radford, a daughter Susanna Kathryn Worrell Hunter and her husband Ellis Lee Hunter, Roanoke, and three grandchildren, David Ammen Worrell III, Susanna Kathryn Worrell, and Ellis Chase Hunter. Funeral services will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 15 at the First Baptist Church, with the Rev. Dennis Martin and Dr. Paul Lane officiating. Interment will follow in West View Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14 at the First Baptist Church. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Radford Fire Department or to a favorite charity. DeVilbiss Funeral Home, Radford, is handling arrangements.
