Lovingly called Aunt Posy, she loved back in equal measure her husband Rupert; children Marcel, Janice (Tony Longmore), Grace, and Karen; granddaughter Jeanae; and countless extended and adopted family and friends. A registered nurse for 48 years, she was also an excellent cook, a sought after baker (her Christmas/rum/fruit cake was legendary), storyteller, sage, abandoner of short-term obsessions (sewing, cake decorating, piano playing, the bread machine), and armchair expert on current events. She loved music, puppies, flowers, Coronation Market in Kingston Jamaica, good food (with the exception of okra), an occasional rum cream liqueur, and beautiful clothes. Most of all, she loved the Lord Jesus Christ, in whose arms she is now at peace.
Her Celebration Of Life will be livestreamed on Saturday, May 30 at 2pm MDT. A memorial service will be held in Jamaica at a later date when we can gather together in worship and thanksgiving.
Donations in her honour can be made to your local food banks and shelters.
