Tywana Delores Owens made her early arrival on January 10, 1975 to parents Denzell Sevion Bordley, Sr. and the late Delores Marie Wilson at the Atlantic City Medical Center, Atlantic City, New Jersey. She entered peacefully into her eternal rest on October 7, 2020 at her home in Edington, North Carolina. From childhood, Tywana was a natural caregiver serving others with love and compassion. This giving and caring spirit led her into a career as a Certified Nursing Assistant. She worked as a CNA for 3.5 years at Capital Healthcare in Dover, Delaware. Tywana also worked as a Shift Supervisor for ten years at Kent Sussex Industries, in Milford, Delaware and most recently worked at Kraft Foods, before taking a leave of absence. Tywana could not see anyone in need and not try to help them in some way, even when it was at a great personal sacrifice.
Tywana loved her family more than anything in the world. One of her greatest joys was spending time with her family. Tywana’s life was committed to caring for her four sons: Jermaine, Mahdi, Malcom and Waheed and her little princess, granddaughter Malai. Tywana moved her family to Delaware to begin a new journey. On November 23, 2016 Tywana married the love of her life, Andre Owens. Regardless of what was going on around her, Tywana’s laughter was infectious as she loved to see others happy. Tywana loved to cook, travel and shop. It was her nature even as a child, to care for her siblings and those around her. This included visiting those who were sick and shut in, hospitalized, imprisoned, and those in nursing homes to spread joy and hope. Tywana opened her home to serve others in need, even when she did not have it to give monetarily, her genuine love and concern was priceless to those she helped.
When the Lord began to really deal with her spirit, Tywana surrendered to the Lord and received the precious gift of the Holy Ghost in 2006 under the leadership of the late Bishop Curtis I. Bordley at Greater Love Temple (GLT), Milford, Delaware. As a faithful member of GLT, she sung on the Adult and Combined Choirs and served as a member of the Hospitality Committee. In 2019, Tywana began to faithfully visit M.F. Chase Unity Memorial Church, Camden-Wyoming, Delaware under the leadership of Elder Dr. Samuel L. Dixon. In 2020, Tywana accepted the right hand of fellowship under Elder Dixon.
