4(arjorie Isaac was born on April 19,1924 to Annie Walters
L and Ellick Sylvester on the island of Nevis.
At the age of 13, she came to St. Thomas and lived with her
aunt Addie Callender while she worked in the cook shop called
"Callender's", on the Waterfront. While working with Miss
Addie, she met and married Lionel Isaac and out of the marriage
two children were born, Eleanor and Angela.
Four years after marriage, she was widowed by the un-
timely death of Lionel. Maudie however, continued to live in
Savan where she raised her two daughters in their home on
General Gade.
While in Savan,Maudie met Ashburn Stevens who became
a good friend and devoted companion who was always there for
her as her health declined and her illness became critical.-.
As a mother, companion, cousin or friend, Miss Maudie
was an extremely generous person. She gave unselfishly to
family, friends and strangers alike. Children who met her found
comfort in her presence.
Miss Maudie, like her cousin Muddie, loved to cook and
always had food on the stove for family or friends who stopped
by to visit and eat. She was a true homemaker, the door to her
home was always open because she loved to have family and
friends around her.
In 1987, she suffered herfirststroke and thereafter through-
out her battle with failing health; Miss Maudie retained a certain
calm and peace that must be attributed to her strong faith in God.
At times it appeared that she might be in some discomfort. She
never complained and she maintained a keen awareness of
family and friends who visited with her.
Throughout her life, Miss Maudie was an avid church goer,
a member of St. Andrews Church Family and the Women of St.
Andrew's Organizatipn. She was an admirable person. May she
rest in eternal peace with the Lord.
