1903 -1995

Mrs. Alice Maude Nisbett was born on the 21st of Decem-
ber, 1903. She was educated at Gingerland Girls' School in
Nevis.
A dedicated and caring mother of four boys and seven girls,
Alice would often go without to see that things were better for
her family. She was very strict and often got very annoyed if
her instructions were not adhered to.
She was a regular Church goer in Nevis, not a Sunday
would be missed except for illness, and so too, was very ada-
mant that all her children would attend Church as often as
possible. In Nevis she was a member of the Monday Prayer
Meetings.
Here in St. Thomas, where she came to reside with her
daughter Ruth in her later days, she was a member of the
Methodist Benevolence Society. She had a very quiet nature
and took note of all that took place around. She was very
strong willed and nothing could prevent her from achieving
whatever she started. Whatever the weather, she was up and
going.
Mama, we will have fond memories of you. You will be
sadly missed. Sleep sweetly.

In a group setting marked by Christian love, older members are pre-
cious. So it was with Alice Maude Nisbett, who, at age 92, was the oldest
member of Class No. 20 at Wesley Methodist Church. To all of us she was
special. She had lived not only a long life, but a good life; and we have
learned much from what she said and did. Her faithfulness in attending,
giving, sharing and caring spoke loudly to us of how the Christian life
should be lived. We shall miss her, especially at our weekly meetings on
Sunday mornings. We shall grieve, but our grief is lightened by the
certainty that, for us Christians, death is not the end. We shall meet
again.

Precious memories, how they linger, how they will ever fill my soul
Love you mother, you are gone but not forgotten.

God be with you till we meet again.
From Doris

0, for a heart to praise my God, a heart from sin set free
From Cousin Eunice Jones, rest in peace.
