In 2003, she migrated to the America, where she resided with her children offering support and advice to everyone. She became ill in 2019 and fought a brave battle. On August 19, 2020, she was called home to be with her Lord and Savior. She is survived by her children, Elizabeth, Andre, Gem and Rawle.
