Obituary of Iveory J. Howse

Iveory J. Howse was born on January 2, 1936, in Cedar Hill, TN to the late Eugene Bell and Mary Gladys (Scott) Bell. She was the fourth child born to this union. Iveory grew up in Springfield, TN and graduated from Bransford High School in 1954. The Bell family attended Mount Olive Baptist Church, where at the age of ten, Iveory was baptized. In 1954, Iveory met Lennard Howse. Upon his return from military duty in South Korea, they were united in marriage on February 15, 1956. They were blessed with five children, and for 64 years, they remained faithful soulmates until Lennard’s death on March 3, 2020. In 1965, due to Lennard’s military assignment, the Howse’s moved from Charleston, SC to Denver, CO, and four years later to Bangor, ME in 1969. After his retirement from the USAF in 1972, the family returned and settled in Denver. It was then that they became members of Zion Temple Pentecostal Apostolic Church. Missionary Howse’s life was centered around the church. Each of her grandchildren remembers her constant encouragement to them to, “Keep God first, read your Bible, and say your prayers.” At Zion, she served in various capacities including Sunday School teacher, choir member, Outreach Team, and the Junior Church Committee. As a member of the Outreach Team, Iveory's signature offering to the homeless was a bottle of water wrapped in a $2 bill and a scripture. She remained faithful in attendance at Zion until the pandemic. Not being able to meet with her fellow congregants made her not a “happy camper.” As soon as it was possible, Iveory quickly found her way back to the House of the Lord. On October 18, 2021, Missionary Howse heeded the Lord’s call from earth to glory. In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by her son, Anthony, her sisters, Marie Ellis and Lovey Garrett, and her godson, Christopher Combs. She is survived by her remaining four children: Vanessa Davis-Robinson (Aurora, CO), Phillip (Gwendylena) Howse (Seattle, WA), Jonathan (Shameka) Howse (Denver, CO), and Ivan (Deana) Howse (Colo. Spgs., CO), her sister, Carlene Russell (Markham, IL), as well as her 14 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren. She will be sorely missed by her family, her Zion Temple Church prayer buddies, several spiritual children, and many others too numerous to name.
