MAGDALANE MONSANTO MOSES was born on July 20,
1906 on St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. She was the first of
nine children born to the late Anna and Emile Monsanto.
Magdalane met and married Whitfield Moses in 1937.
Magdalane or "Auntie Maddie" as she was ajjectionately
known. died on September 11, 1998, at Sea View Nursing Home.

She attended James Madison Elementary School now known
as Edith Williams Elementary School and completed the highest
grade attainable at that time. Soon after she completed school.
she moved to New York City where she gave birth to twin boys.
One son died at a tender age and the surviving son, Emile "Big
Man" Monsanto departed this life in 1983 leaving his mother
and six children.

Magdalane was employed at Blue Bears Castle Hotel for
many years. After her retirement, she became a Foster Mother
to many, children. Above all that can be said about her, she was
a loving, caring, helpful, generous and kind person.

After battling a lengthy illness, "Auntie Malddie left us to be
with her Lord. She lived a full and happy lift and got to see her
many grand children, great grand children, great-great grand
children, and her many nieces and nephews whom she dearly
loved.

Although we know that she is resting in the arms of the
Almighty, we will miss her dearly.

Auntie Maddie, May you rest in peace until we meet again.
