Loanna Cameron-Vanterpool Dies at 69

Loanna Cameron-Vanterpool

Mrs. Loanna Cameron-Vanterpool, “better known as Lorna,” peacefully transitioned this earthly life on March 23, in Greensboro, N.C., at the age of 69.

Loanna was a Cancer Awareness Advocate, a very active member of her church, an excellent seamstress and an even better culinary artist. No matter what life threw at her, we were comforted in knowing that her faith in the Lord sustained her.

She was preceded in death by her father, Austin Cameron; brothers: Elliot and Terence Cameron; son, Stewart “Boy Blue” Sargeant and several other relatives.

She is survived by her: mother, Ellen Molyneaux- Cameron; husband, Alvis Vanterpool; sons: John Orlando Levons and Chadvis Kyron Vanterpool; daughters-in-law: Shanika Summers-Levons and Odessa Vanterpool; stepdaughters: Nicole and Angelique Vanterpool; sisters: Muriel “Dotsie” Cameron and Derby “Debbie” Cameron; brother, Raymon Fahie; aunts: Emmie Smith and Grace Christian; uncles: Desmond and Cyril Molyneaux; and nieces: Kharid “Darlene” Cameron, Desary “Tammy” Cameron and Terencia “Terri” Cameron.

She is also survived by nephews: Terence Jr., Richard, Kenrick, Donrick and Garvey Cameron, Darren Kelsick and Dominic Warner; grandchildren: Malik, Selah, Shiloh and Maniya Levons and Stewart Jr., Jhamori, Chaundy and Shamiah Sargeant and Kyron Vanterpool; great-grandchildren: Jacoby, Josiah, Jeremiah, Aiden and Shylah Levons, and Chaunoy Sargeant; and godchildren: Eboni Ottley-Turnbull, Lorolie Mercer, Chadanae Gumbs, Shawn Claxton and Jamal Pascal.

Other survivors include godsisters: Grethel Barry-Smith, Wonder Robinson-Malone, Carla Kirkland, Judith Smith and Naomi Turay; godbrothers: Ariel Cameron and Alvin Smith; adopted mothers: Doris Smalls and Marlene Hughes; special cousins: the children of the late Alfred and Camelita Cameron, Dawn Cameron-Smalls, Raynette Cameron-Richards, Alphonso and Purnell Barry, Sheila Freeman and Volupte Testamark; and a host of many other special family members, relatives and friends who are too numerous to mention.

She held her family close to her heart and loved everyone dearly.

The first viewing will be held from 4-6 p.m., Tuesday, April 23, at Turnbull’s Funeral Home on St. Thomas.

Please join the family at her farewell service, which is scheduled for Wednesday, April 24, at Wesley Methodist Church in Anna’s Retreat. The viewing will be held at 9 a.m. followed by a service at 10 a.m.

Her Home Going Service is scheduled for Saturday, April 27, at Zion Hill Methodist Church on Tortola, BVI. The viewing will be held at 9 a.m. followed by the official service beginning at 10 a.m. She will be interned at Capoon’s Bay Cemetery.

  ** In her honor, the family is requesting that African attire be worn. **

Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the care of Turnbull’s Funeral Home and Crematory Services on St. Thomas, V.I. and Tortola Memorial Services (formerly Davis Funeral Home) on Tortola, B.V.I.
