    Chaplain Audrey Pryor-Mouizi, Sentara Princess Anne Hospital says

    To the family of Chaplain Essie Scarboro, my deepest condolences for the loss of your loved one. Essie was certainly a special person. I will always remember her powerful ministry of pastoral care as a chaplain with the Sentara hospitals. Essie was such a blessing to many, many people–patients, families and staff — during their times of illness, loss, and need for encouragement. And, she was my best “wing woman” in ministry. I will miss her deeply, but, I know on February 3, 2020 she answered another calling–the one from the Lord to come home. May she be at peace.

    I remember Ms.Essie & her family from Revelation Tabernacle. She was a sweet woman that was soft spoken and about her own bussniess. Always had a kind word, and a hug for all those she encountered. I pray that her family finds peace in knowing she’s resting in a better place. Her work here on earth is done. She is loved by many, and will be greatly missed!

    To Scarboro & girls, I struggled all week to find the words to send. My heart goes out to you. When Essie would come into the office, she always had a kind word and pleasant conversation. May God keep his arms around you and keep you in his care. Keep memories close for days ahead. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
