Eva E. West ended her earthly journey on Wednesday, July 24, 2013, in Henrico County, VA

As the eldest child of Malcolm D. Hooker and Annie Johnson Hooker, she was born November 2, 1928 in Hanover, VA. She graduated from Louisa Training School in 1946 and began college at Virginia Union University with nursing in her heart. She married her husband of 61 years, Wallace West, on December 22, 1951. Over the next 9 years, she bore 6 children.

For many years Mrs. West worked for Monticello Community Action Agency, assisting families in crisis. Her true desire, though, was to finish college and become a nurse. Caring for the seriously ill was her passion. She began this endeavor as a Certified Nursing Assistant at Libbie Convalescent Center and Med Pool Agency and later on as a private duty care giver.
Eva was quick to share her gentle smile and lend a hand to all she encountered.

Her loss will be felt by her surviving family: husband, Wallace West, her daughters, Annette Brown (Joe) of Hampton VA, Donna Goolsby (Rodney) of Lancaster, TX, her sons, Wallace H., Sr. of Charlottesville, VA, Malcolm, Donald, and Michael West of Mineral, VA. Loving memories are in the hearts of her grandchildren, Deetra, Wallace H.,Jr, and Shaun West of Charlottesville, VA, Allyssia Johnson, Jarrod and Daniel Brown of Hampton, VA and Cedric, Naomi, and Christian Forehand of Lancaster, TX. Cherished thoughts are shared by her sister, Ophelia Thomas of Upper Marlboro, MD, sisters-in-law, Phyllis Hooker of Washington, D. C. and Alreatha Parker of Philadelphia, PA and a brother-in- law, Andrew Harris of Mineral, VA. Nineteen great grandchildren will also greatly miss her, along with a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and extended family.

Her parents, Malcolm D. Hooker and Annie Johnson Hooker, siblings, Malcolm Hooker, Gloria Robertson, Laura Harris, and her granddaughter, Morgan D. Brown, predeceased Mrs. West.

Henry Frank Patterson, Sr.
July 19, 1932 ~ November 7, 2012
  
Mr. Henry Frank Patterson, Sr. was born July 19, 1932 in Hanover County, Virginia. He was the second son of Cleveland Butler and Percy Patterson. He had two brothers and five sisters. Henry joined Brown Grove Baptist Church, Ashland, Virginia at age 21 when he married Melvinia Lewis in 1953. From this marriage, three children were born, Gladys, Melvinia and Henry, Jr.   
 
Henry Sr. worked as a farmer, bricklayer and a carpenter. His spiritual life in his younger days was to play guitar and to sing in the gospel quartet known as the Golden Trumpeteers. He sang baritone for the group, with local radio performances on Sunday mornings on WANT AM radio. 
 
His middle name, Frank, defined his character in many ways. He was truthful, frank, bold and brazen. He was very bright, taught himself to read the newspaper and to write his name with the help of his mother, Percy, since he never attended school and  found himself in the midst of two decidedly different worlds. Despite these challenges, he had a great sense of humor, was witty in his comments, and was always willing to lend a helping hand. He spent his latter days enjoying his grandchildren and great grandchildren. He was stubborn and never gave up, even though the doctors and nurses stood around him talking as if he had already left us. He responded, “I ain’t gone nowhere yet”. Despite his fighting spirit, he lost his battle for life after a long illness on November 7, 2012 at 4:55 a.m.. 
  
 
He leaves to mourn two daughters, Mrs. Gladys P. Grainger and Dr. Melvinia P. Wilson; one son, Mr. Henry F. Patterson, Jr.; one sister, Mrs. Nellie Patterson; a devoted niece and great niece, Mrs. Marguerite Mines and Ms. Sherrie Mines; two sisters-in-law, Mrs. Gracie Patterson and Mrs. Iona Patterson; two  sons-in-law, Mr. Richard Grainger and Dr. Keathen Wilson, Jr.;  one daughter-in-law, Mrs.. Carol C. Patterson; 5 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren, and a host of nieces and nephews, cousins, relatives and friends.
 
 
His fighting spirit, wit, charm and talents still live among all his descendents. He loved us and we loved him. He gave us life. If it wasn’t for his life we would not be the individuals we are today.

Jahmarey H. Smith

"Jah"

Jahmarey H. Smith
Jahmarey H. Smith
Jahmarey Hashim Smith also known as “Jah”, the oldest child of 4 boys, was the son of Michelle Aroza Russell and Norman Washington Smith, September 26, 1977, in New York City, NY.  He was a precious and much loved child.  He departed this life on Thursday, September 1, 2011
Jahmarey attended Canarsie High School, Brooklyn, NY and Lehman College, Bronx, NY.  Jahmarey was a very special person with endless good qualities. Since he was just a child, he always stuck up for his family as big brother.  He was always willing to come to the aid of those in need and took an interest in people with disabilities. He was a shoulder to lean on, always willing to lend a hand to help someone out, always willing to listen to someone’s problems.  His smile could light up a room and he loved to make people laugh.
Jahmarey’s life was far too brief, but left behind two wonderful children, Jahmarey and Ashley, who are living examples of how special Jahmarey was. He was a good and loving father to them.
He leaves to mourn:  his mother Michelle Aroza Russell; his father Norman Washington Smith; two children Jahmarey Hashim Smith, Jr and Ashley Aroza Smith; three brothers, Ashante Kimane Smith, Aswad Adee Smith, Anthony Chad Smith; nieces and nephew; several aunts and uncles; and a host of other relatives and many, many friends.
Although Jahmarey’s death was sudden and came as a shock to all of us, he would not want for us to spend forever grieving. Rather, Jahmarey would want us all to remember our favorite moments we spent with him. Think about a happy time shared with him.
A parent never wants to outlive their own child. The sadness we feel is not only for ourselves, but for the family and friends Jahmarey has left behind. We want to thank all of you for coming today and for expressing your love for our son.  His memory will live on and we will all be with him again in Heaven. We will miss you Jahmarey, you will be in our hearts forever.  We will miss you Jahmarey, you will be in our hearts forever.

Eva E. West ended her earthly journey on Wednesday, July 24, 2013, in Henrico County, VA

As the eldest child of Malcolm D. Hooker and Annie Johnson Hooker, she was born November 2, 1928 in Hanover, VA. She graduated from Louisa Training School in 1946 and began college at Virginia Union University with nursing in her heart. She married her husband of 61 years, Wallace West, on December 22, 1951. Over the next 9 years, she bore 6 children.

For many years Mrs. West worked for Monticello Community Action Agency, assisting families in crisis. Her true desire, though, was to finish college and become a nurse. Caring for the seriously ill was her passion. She began this endeavor as a Certified Nursing Assistant at Libbie Convalescent Center and Med Pool Agency and later on as a private duty care giver.
Eva was quick to share her gentle smile and lend a hand to all she encountered.

Her loss will be felt by her surviving family: husband, Wallace West, her daughters, Annette Brown (Joe) of Hampton VA, Donna Goolsby (Rodney) of Lancaster, TX, her sons, Wallace H., Sr. of Charlottesville, VA, Malcolm, Donald, and Michael West of Mineral, VA. Loving memories are in the hearts of her grandchildren, Deetra, Wallace H.,Jr, and Shaun West of Charlottesville, VA, Allyssia Johnson, Jarrod and Daniel Brown of Hampton, VA and Cedric, Naomi, and Christian Forehand of Lancaster, TX. Cherished thoughts are shared by her sister, Ophelia Thomas of Upper Marlboro, MD, sisters-in-law, Phyllis Hooker of Washington, D. C. and Alreatha Parker of Philadelphia, PA and a brother-in- law, Andrew Harris of Mineral, VA. Nineteen great grandchildren will also greatly miss her, along with a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and extended family.

Her parents, Malcolm D. Hooker and Annie Johnson Hooker, siblings, Malcolm Hooker, Gloria Robertson, Laura Harris, and her granddaughter, Morgan D. Brown, predeceased Mrs. West.

Henry Frank Patterson, Sr.
July 19, 1932 ~ November 7, 2012
  
Mr. Henry Frank Patterson, Sr. was born July 19, 1932 in Hanover County, Virginia. He was the second son of Cleveland Butler and Percy Patterson. He had two brothers and five sisters. Henry joined Brown Grove Baptist Church, Ashland, Virginia at age 21 when he married Melvinia Lewis in 1953. From this marriage, three children were born, Gladys, Melvinia and Henry, Jr.   
 
Henry Sr. worked as a farmer, bricklayer and a carpenter. His spiritual life in his younger days was to play guitar and to sing in the gospel quartet known as the Golden Trumpeteers. He sang baritone for the group, with local radio performances on Sunday mornings on WANT AM radio. 
 
His middle name, Frank, defined his character in many ways. He was truthful, frank, bold and brazen. He was very bright, taught himself to read the newspaper and to write his name with the help of his mother, Percy, since he never attended school and  found himself in the midst of two decidedly different worlds. Despite these challenges, he had a great sense of humor, was witty in his comments, and was always willing to lend a helping hand. He spent his latter days enjoying his grandchildren and great grandchildren. He was stubborn and never gave up, even though the doctors and nurses stood around him talking as if he had already left us. He responded, “I ain’t gone nowhere yet”. Despite his fighting spirit, he lost his battle for life after a long illness on November 7, 2012 at 4:55 a.m.. 
  
 
He leaves to mourn two daughters, Mrs. Gladys P. Grainger and Dr. Melvinia P. Wilson; one son, Mr. Henry F. Patterson, Jr.; one sister, Mrs. Nellie Patterson; a devoted niece and great niece, Mrs. Marguerite Mines and Ms. Sherrie Mines; two sisters-in-law, Mrs. Gracie Patterson and Mrs. Iona Patterson; two  sons-in-law, Mr. Richard Grainger and Dr. Keathen Wilson, Jr.;  one daughter-in-law, Mrs.. Carol C. Patterson; 5 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren, and a host of nieces and nephews, cousins, relatives and friends.
 
 
His fighting spirit, wit, charm and talents still live among all his descendents. He loved us and we loved him. He gave us life. If it wasn’t for his life we would not be the individuals we are today.

After a short illness, Mary Lee Wingfield peacefully departed this life on Sunday, February 19, 2012. She was surrounded by the love of her family when God called her home. Mary was born on June 26, 1922 to the late Walter and Robinette Carter. She was educated in Virginia Public Schools. Mary worked as a Bus Operator for Caroline County Public Schools for over 40 years, while also an owner operator of Wingfield Taxi, servicing people nationwide. All you had to do was dial her number, have your money, and she was there to service you. There was no limit to how far she would provide services to her customers. Mary united in Holy Matrimony to Dean Wingfield, Sr. Mary loved her husband and in his eyes, Mary was a “SUPER” wife and his soul mate. Mary had seven children whom she adored. She was known for her youthful appearance and if you asked her age, she always replied “I’m 39”. She had an amazing sense of humor, enjoyed entertaining family, but most of all spending quality time with her grandchildren. Mary had a gracious heart and she often opened her home to individuals with special needs. She loved all types of animals and she leaves behind her Chihuahua “Little Man” who misses her very much! Mary’s special hobbies were fishing, yard sales and Atlantic City.
Mary leaves to cherish her devoted husband Dean Wingfield, Sr of 40 years; seven children Thelma Calloway of Lanham, MD, Constance Hicks (Michael) of Phoenix, AZ; Kenneth Burruss of New Carrolton, MD; Lana Turner-Reed (Frederick) of Jacksonville, FL; William Turner, II (Frances) of Doswell, VA; Dean Wingfield, Jr. of Fresh Meadows, NY; and William Turner-Wingfield, III of Fredericksburg, VA; 15 grandchildren, 18 great grandchildren, 5 great-great grandchildren; Two sisters Genive Smith of Lil Burn, GA and LaVerne Suarez of Queens, NY; one aunt Fannie Wolfolk of Ruther Glen, VA; Mother-in-law Cynthia Gentry of Ruther Glen, VA; 5 brother-in-laws Dwight, Tracy, Danny, Theodore, Michael, and Lawrence; two sister-in-laws Dulaney and Delores Anne; Care Givers Mr. and Mrs. Darrell and Donna Simms of Ruther Glen, VA; a host of other relatives and friends.

Jahmarey H. Smith

"Jah"
September 26, 1977 ~ September 1, 2011
Jahmarey H. Smith
Jahmarey H. Smith
Jahmarey Hashim Smith also known as “Jah”, the oldest child of 4 boys, was the son of Michelle Aroza Russell and Norman Washington Smith, September 26, 1977, in New York City, NY.  He was a precious and much loved child.  He departed this life on Thursday, September 1, 2011
Jahmarey attended Canarsie High School, Brooklyn, NY and Lehman College, Bronx, NY.  Jahmarey was a very special person with endless good qualities. Since he was just a child, he always stuck up for his family as big brother.  He was always willing to come to the aid of those in need and took an interest in people with disabilities. He was a shoulder to lean on, always willing to lend a hand to help someone out, always willing to listen to someone’s problems.  His smile could light up a room and he loved to make people laugh.
Jahmarey’s life was far too brief, but left behind two wonderful children, Jahmarey and Ashley, who are living examples of how special Jahmarey was. He was a good and loving father to them.
He leaves to mourn:  his mother Michelle Aroza Russell; his father Norman Washington Smith; two children Jahmarey Hashim Smith, Jr and Ashley Aroza Smith; three brothers, Ashante Kimane Smith, Aswad Adee Smith, Anthony Chad Smith; nieces and nephew; several aunts and uncles; and a host of other relatives and many, many friends.
Although Jahmarey’s death was sudden and came as a shock to all of us, he would not want for us to spend forever grieving. Rather, Jahmarey would want us all to remember our favorite moments we spent with him. Think about a happy time shared with him.
A parent never wants to outlive their own child. The sadness we feel is not only for ourselves, but for the family and friends Jahmarey has left behind. We want to thank all of you for coming today and for expressing your love for our son.  His memory will live on and we will all be with him again in Heaven. We will miss you Jahmarey, you will be in our hearts forever.  We will miss you Jahmarey, you will be in our hearts forever.
