The Management and Staff of Serenity Memorial Funeral Home extend its sincerest condolences to the family of Ms.Sheila Bowden, 66 of Goldsboro, NC , who transitioned on Friday, August 14, 2020, at the Wayne UNC Health Care, Goldsboro, NC.

Mrs. Shelia Doris Bowden (Isler) daughter of Wilbert and Mary Lee Isler, age 66, was born on August 1, 1954. She attended Goldsboro High School where she graduated class of 1972.

After high school, she moved to New York City to attend York College and work for Delta Airlines where she served as a flight attendant and traveled all over the world. While there she met a family that embarked upon her life, she would refer to them as “Daddy” and Daisy Benard who became her Godparents to her and her first born.

Her occupation led her to relocate to Dallas, Texas where she was married in union to Victor Streeter who has preceded her in death. From that union she bore two children.

Thereupon, she accepted the Lord into her life as her personal Savior and attended Dallas Baptist University where she studied the Word to get a full understanding.

She resigned from the airline industry after twenty years, and her calling from the Lord led her to relocate to Atlanta, Texas where she contributed as a valuable member of Enon First Baptist Church, where she led the praise dance team for many years. She worked at Atlanta High School as a mentor to troubled teens where she found her purpose to co-find a group for those that needed counseling, called, Black Educated Teens United (BETU). She was best known there as Mrs. Warren.

In her later years she was impelled to move back to her hometown of Goldsboro, North Carolina where she then married Willie Odell Bowden for a time.

She worked for the prison system and there-after was a faithful member of Pleasant Grove Free Will Church. During this time she was diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer and bore that cross until the very end.

She was preceded in death by her mother Mary Isler, her grandmother Sis Delcy Frazier, by whom she was raised and her brother Rev. William Isler.

She leaves behind to celebrate her homecoming, two daughters, Vickeita and Sheena Streeter of Goldsboro, NC, her father, Rev Wilbert Isler of Texas. Siblings, Shirley Isler Whitley of Maryland, Dorothy Isler Dubose of California, Lashonda Isler Walker of Texas, Michael Isler of Texas and honorary sister Gwenithe Stephens of New York, as well as a close sister in Christ Karen Brewer. Aunt Catherie Coleman of New York, Aunt Edna Frazier Adams of North Carolina, Aunt Catherine Isler Williams of North Carolina, and Uncle John Earl Isler of North Carolina. Five grand-children, Vantre’ Streeter-McKenzie, Shamia and Jada Miller, Ashton-Grey Streeter, Grayson Smith II, and Aubri Shelia-Sky Jefferies. Three Godchildren, Larry and Rashaun Stephens of New York, and Sommeri Nicole Bryant of Texas… and a host of nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews, cousins, and friends.

Services of Love & Compassionate Care have been entrusted to Serenity Memorial Funeral Home &
Cremations, LLC.
