She was the first of twelve (12) children and adored her own large family of five (5) children: Maureen, Juliet (Vice Principal at Kingston College), Romeo, Michelle and Adrian.  She was also the proud grand-mother of nine (9) grand-children: Kara, Mikhail, Romae, Jodian, Jade, Erinn, Amarie, Wesley and Evie.

She believed strongly in education and, as a single parent, ensured that her children got the best education possible. Her hard work, motivation and tremendous sacrifice resulted in her children passing the Common Entrance Exam for five of the best High schools in Jamaica: Montego Bay High School, Mt. Alvernia High School, Cornwall College, Herbert Morrison High and Ardenne High, which made her very proud. Among her five children she has a teacher, a businessman, a chemist, an aeronautical engineer & pilot and a Vice Principal.  Her children and grand-children were her life and her entire world.
