Obituary

Joyce M. Reid was born September 1, 1922 in the district of Northampton, St. Elizabeth, Jamaica, West Indies. She departed this life at 96 years of age on Monday, January 7, 2019 at home amongst her loving family.
She received her formal education in the district of Leeds, St. Elizabeth and then relocated to the city of Kingston, Jamaica where she worked in hospitality and as a professional seamstress.

Mom Mom Reid I spent little time in your presence, but through your beautiful family I always felt your presence. Mom Mom and aunty Barbara helped me learn over many years how beautiful and loving you were and you will be missed abundantly by all. A poem for you Mom Mom Reid😘 God looked around his garden and found an empty space then, he gently looked down upon his earth and saw your beautiful and tired face. God put his arms around you and lifted you to rest, and now God’s garden must be so beautiful because he only takes the best.
