Mark Cowles Obituary

In I Corinthians 5: 3, the Apostle Paul tells us, “That to be absent in the body, but present in Spirit is to be with Christ Jesus.” This is glorifying for believers, so thus on November 21, 2023, Mark took his place with Christ Jesus.

On March 21, 1974, Mark Curtis Cowles, was a blessing born to Janice E. Ferby and the late Dennis Lanmark Cowles, in Kansas City, Kansas. Mark was reared in Emporia, Virginia and was educated in the Greensville County Public School System. To know Mark was to love him. He danced to the beat of his own drum. Mark was employed with various jobs over the years, but his greatest accomplishment was rearing his beautiful daughter, Moye Cowles. As life progressed, Mark relocated to Norfolk, Virginia. However, his passion for cooking and fishing with his brothers and close friends remained.

In addition to his father, Mark was also predeceased by his grandmothers, Mary A. Robinson and Annie R. Hawthorn; aunts, Ida Hawthorne, Josephine Paige and Earnestine Larkin and uncles, Henry C. Robinson and Alvin Dunbar Robinson.

Cherished memories will forever remain in the hearts of: his daughter, Moye Cowles; his mother, Janice E. Ferby (Elonzo); brothers, Timothy C. Paige and Matthew D. Cowles (Ava); sisters, Michelle L. Cowles and Whitney D. Taylor (James); niece, Mariah M. Cowles; nephews, Nicholas Cowles, Jaden D. Young, Anthony Lee and Tremaine Lee; great-niece, Ramiah D. Belton; great-nephew, Kiyon R. Harding; aunts, Elizabeth Galloway (Tyrone) and Barbara Williams; uncle, Earnest W. Paige (Frankie); his best friend, Demanus Green; a host of other loving relatives and close friends.
