Edith Posalind Samuel
1916-1995
Edith Rosalind Samuel was born to Louisa and James Samuel on
November 6, 1916. "Auntie" as she was affectionately called by the
young ones, loved basket weaving and sewing. Many in the Islands of St.
John and some on St. Thomas are familiar with her weaved items, as she
would give these items as gifts and sometimes sell them. Auntie also
loved to sew. She did embroidery, crochet and needlepoint
Auntie also loved her church Emmaus Moravian Church. She was
there on Saturday cleaning, and would be the first one there when the
door opened.
Auntie lived most of her life on St. John, the island she loved, until
failing in health. She was admitted to Sea View Nursing Home on St.
Thomas, and departed this life on April 13, 1995. She is now resting in
our Saviour's Arms.
May she rest in perfect peace.
