Eulogy
nita Perez was born on December 11, 1924 to
Doris Perez and James Doyle on the island of
Trinidad.
In 1968, she traveled to St Thomas with two of her
grandchildren Judy and Stanley, to join her daugh-
ter.
In 1971, she moved to New York where she re-
sided in Brooklyn until 1975. In 1975 she returned to 1
St. Thomas to be with her family. In 1977, Anita had
the privilege of seeing her first great grandchild -
Natasha Smith, and followed by seven other great
grandchildren.
Almost every year, Anita travelled to Trinidad with
her children to enjoy the Carnival. Anytime there was
a function which was attended by her daughter, Anita
was always with her.
Anita enjoyed and loved her family to a great ex-
tent and was very attentive and concerned whenever
any one of them was sick
Mamie Celebrated her 71st birthday on December
11, 1995. Part of her wishes in life was to be natural-
ized (which she did on September 15. 1995), and to
see her granddaughter -- Judy. be married to Joseph
Ferdinand, which she did on August 24, 1994.
Mamie never wanted to be a burden to anyone of
her family, she always said that she never wanted to
suffer. i
Mamie complained for many years of headaches.
and tried to control her high blood pressure and arthri-
tis pains.
She became ill on December 28. 1995 and went
into a coma almost immediately. On January 1. 1996.
Mamie left us to be with her Lord. with her family at
her bedside.
May she rest in peace.

Tributes


Mamie Auntie was a very kind, warm and affection-
ate person. She always had a story to tell you about her-
self and always made you laugh.
I will miss her but I know that she is walking on the
Street paved with gold and that she is sharing her kind-
ness and love with God. I know that she will always be
with me In spirit.
So, rest In peace.
Love.
Carol McNight


Tribute to Anita Perez
I am grateful to God for giving me the opportunity to
have shared my life with my great grandmother. Recently,
after the storm, we had become much closer together. I
will always remember her wonderful sense of humor. I
know Mamle is at piece and she will always watch over
her family.
May she rest in peace.
Natasha Smith
Granddaughter


Tribute to Anita Perez
Mamle was such a wonderful person. Friendly, af-
fectionate, great sense of humor, in spite of her aches and
pains, and loved her family dearly.
We thank God for giving her to us and we also thank
him for taking her so peacefully and not allowing her to
suffer. Mamie died with her family at her side.
We will miss her but we know that she is happy. No
more sorrows, no more pain. We have wonderful memo-
ries of Mamie and again we thank God for that privilege.
Lucille. Stanly. Sr.,
Judy. Deborah & all the Great Grands






Mama Ninta:
You are gone but not forgotten. That beautiful smile
has left a lasting memory in our hearts. We shall always
remember you.
May your soul find eternal peace in the Lord's King-
dom. Rest in peace.
Mrs. Celestine Turnbull & Family

To My Mother, Anita Prez:
Manie, you have been my mother and father all In
one. I will always cherish the wonderful times we spent
together. I'm glad that I had a chance to ask you to forgive
me when I got angry with you, then you would hug me
and say, "Lulu, no my child, you must forgive me because
you got mad with me because you love me and cared
about my health". I thank God for you, Mamie, you were
always there for me. It is hard for me to accept that you
are gone.
You will never be forgotten.
Your one and only child
Lulu "Lucille"

Mamle Anita,
We all will miss you. Whenever we did or said some-
thing wrong, you always corrected us. You made us laugh
a lot with your jokes.
You are special to us.
Your Great-Grandchildren Natasha Smith,
Stanly Perez, Jr.. LaShawn, LaQuan & Jendayi
