We will sadly miss…Townie.

June 10, 2012

Friends and family of Jeffery Town,

It is with sadness that we announce that another stalwart community member has been fallen. Antoinette Wellington, affectionately known by all and sundry as ‘Townie’ has passed away. I am uncertain of the circumstances surrounding her death, but she will be sadly missed. Those who knew Townie will remember her for her outstanding and selfless community service. Townie was always lending a helping hand. I personally recalls her acting as a nurse, carer and caretaker for many elderly, sick and shut-in people across the community; many times on a volunteer basis. Along with the late Diana Cox, Townie has touched many lives with her in-born nursing skills. I don’t believe that she has ever received formal training as a nurse, but Townie was born to care for people. I am aware that she was deprived of opportunities to receive formal training to use her God-given skills because of political discrimination. But she has never made these obstacle prevent her from lending a helping hand to those in need regardless of colour or creed. “I recall how Townie voluntarily assisted me in the aftermath of the Hurricane Ivan in September 2004, doing assessment of hurricane damages in the Jeffery Town community, that was severely affected.” (Stephanie Fletcher, Public Health Inspector)

We will never forget that very high pitched voice calling out greetings to friends and neighbours.Townie has lived her life serving others, an attitude the Jesus himself recommended. Antoinette ‘Townie’, we will miss you and your labour of love. I pray that you will find a place with the Master healer in eternity.

Walk good, Townie.

From all of us at the Jeffery Town Connection.
