On Sunday morning, July 22, 2018 at 12:25AM, our dearest mother, Demetrius Lorraine Elam, 69, known lovingly by her friends and family as "the Diva," peacefully went home to be with the Lord.


She was a devout member of St. Timothy Church of Christ Holiness U.S.A/ Greater Works Church in Newport News, VA. 


Her greater works include service as a Sunday school teacher, vacation bible school teacher, and a committed member of the usher board, kitchen committee and decorating committee.


Her memories are left to be cherished by her devoted husband of 47 years, Arnold Elam, and her four precious children, Arnold Wayne Elam, Jr., Jervain Elam, Felicia Christian, and Danielle Scott.


A celebration of life  service will be held 11:00 a.m. Saturday, July 28, 2018 at  New Hope Baptist Church. Hampton, VA. 1415 Big Bethel Rd. by Elder Ramon Lynch.


Interment will be held at Albert G. Horton Memorial Veteran Cemetery. Suffolk, VA. 


Mrs. Elam will lie in state two hours prior to service on Saturday. (Viewing will be in Church only).


It is the desire of the Elam family that you keep them in your thoughts and prayers.


The family of the late Mrs. Demetrius Elam has entrusted her final care to the staff of C. C. Carter Funeral Home, Inc.
