    Auntie, we always called you Auntie very few of us knew your real name Marjorie. We didn’t get to know you at a young age but once older you were a book of many family stories and history which was a joy to listen to.
    You embraced us in your warm welcoming nature, full of life and humour, making us laugh and joke at the memories of life from the past and present.
    Always one to bring everyone together as a family for picnics, nothing like a English picnic but the traditional Bajan Sunday lunch on the beach.
    Your kindness and selflessness knew know bounds, caring for our maternal grandmother and on your last visit to England without asking lending a helping hand to your sick brother.
    We thought you would make the hundred but it seems you were runout, but you stayed the distance long enough to love and support your siblings and family until the very end.
    Auntie you will be certainly missed by us all.

    A dear Sister of Otha, Sister-in-law Vera and Auntie to family in England and Australia,

Leave a Condolence
