Obituary for ERNESTINE JEANNETTE SEWELL

Ernestine Jeannette Sewell was born on March 12, 1955, to Shirley C. Johnson and the late James W. Johnson. She transitioned this life on Sunday, December 29 at Calvert Memorial Hospital after a long illness.

Tine/Tina, as she was affectionately known, completed her early education in Calvert County Public Schools. For many years she was a stay at home Mom, later going to work at Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant until retirement in 2005. During her tenure there, she continued to improve her skills by attending many training courses and serving in various capacities. She held various positions and was often recognized for her skills and dedication to the company. Tina was an outstanding worker who received numerous awards, and left a void in the company when she had to retire, she left a lasting impression on everyone.

Although her life was filled with many happy events and experiences, she realized that her life was not complete. In March, 2000, Tina became one of the founding members of Greater Mount Zion Church. She immediately became active in the XYZ and Culinary Ministry until she experienced health challenges.

She was a devoted grandmother and great grandmother, who loved her babies. She talked about them daily to anyone who would listen, and expressed her determination to make it back to Calvert to see them.

Tina enjoyed baking and making preserves for family and friends and had a love for arts and crafts. Tina particularly enjoyed providing support to families who were less fortunate. She loved people and this love was shown daily. She maintained her "trade mark" sense of humor until her final days.

Tina was preceded in her journey by her father James W. Johnson along with two special people her niece Khalia and nephew Twain.

Her memory lives on through: her 3 children, Kathy, Kevin, and Gwendolyn Height; 6 grandchildren, Trochelle Smith, Tyra Harvey, Tiera, Dominic, Xaiver, and Malachi Height; 3 great grandchildren: .Ja'Mya and Za'Mya Yates and Semaj Smith; her loving mother, Shirley C. Johnson; 9 sisters, Debby, Pamela, Lynettle (Roscoe), Wendy, Casandra, Frances, Victoria, Crystal Johnson and Laverne Stewart (Sherman); 8 brothers, Donald Tyler, Nathaniel (Kimberly), Joseph (Shirley), William (Jenene), James Jr., William (Sharron), Raymond Johnson, and Thomas Broome (Leslie) and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
