SEVERN – Our sweet angel, Izabella Noy Coren, age 5 of Severn, passed peacefully into the hands of Jesus on Tuesday, April 29, 2014.

Born in Norfolk, VA on September 25, 2008, she was the daughter of Adam Coren and Alisha Smith.  Left to cherish her in our hearts forever are, Mama, Dada, brother Carson, Nana and Papa (Diane and Walt Osbon), Grandma (Denise Smith), Great-Grandmother’s (Nancy Basham and Flora Coren) as well as a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and special friends. She was in Pre-K at WillisHareElementary School.

Bella stole the hearts of everyone who came in contact with her. She overcame many obstacles, far exceeding what doctors said she would ever do.  She had a rare genetic syndrome, Mowat-Wilson Syndrome along with Hirschsprungs Disease, and suffered through many surgeries in her short life.  Without speaking a word she taught us so much.

A memorial service / celebration of her life will be held at Severn Baptist Church on Tuesday, May 6, 2014 conducted by Rev. Mark Corbett and Rev. Brent Hobbs.  Family visitation will be at 12:30 p.m. in the Church Fellowship Hall, with a 2:00 p.m. service followed by a graveside memorial in the Severn Cemetery.

Bridgers Funeral Home in Conway, NC will be handling arrangements.  Online condolences can be placed at www.bridgersfuneralhome.com.

We would also like to thank everyone for their support and prayers during this time of grief, with special thanks to Severn Baptist Church, Severn Ruritan Club, Conway-Severn Rescue Squad, and Severn Volunteer Fire Department.  She is singing and dancing in heaven now.
