Obituary

Born out of the union of Joseph Augustus Bryan and Leila Henrietta Williamson. Fay St. Margaret Bryan was the third child and second girl for the couple starting out their lives. Fay's life began on the 4th day of July,1941;but to have it told, her mother saw events prior to her birth as a sign of her difficulties ahead. Sometime after Fay's birth, it was discovered that she had no hearing, suffice it to say, Fay was from thereon, protected by her parents, who saw this as an affliction and sought to protect her from the onslaught of life's challenges. Fay was give may "safe" opportunities in her early childhood, which made hear an invaluable caregiver. Fay also had a knack of making things with her, hands; she loved creating art in the form of crocheting, knitting, basket weaving and embroidery. She also enjoyed cooking. Despite Fay's seemingly disadvantaged life, she had a zest for living and managed to create a network of close friends through association and church. Fay loved and wanted to be a part of life, not just an onlooker. The birth of her first child, gave her a sense of belonging, being a part of the normal world. She has child; someone to call her own. She loved to describe her first born as a pretty baby, but a big baby with such big feet, she laughed. Then she liked to compare her with cousin, Sharon, who was a mere three weeks younger, but was so tiny and cute but not with the right textured hair, she laughed gleefully again. Her expression of the words big and small and pretty were in no way obscure, you knew exactly what she wanted to convey. Fay then gave birth to her second child seven years later and her life was complete. Fay devoted her time and energy to the raising of her two children, very over protective at times; rarely allowing anyone to "discipline" her children as she felt that this was her responsibility. She grew up with the maternal instincts she had and made us as happy as she could in the best way she knew. Fay devoted most of her life to the upbringing of her children/grandchildren, her siblings' children and taking care of her mother in the final stages of her mother's life. In the end, it was her daughter's time to return the care and love she so devotedly bestowed. It was a difficult time in the end. She endured until she could no more. She was called home on a Tuesday, January 5, 2021 at approximately 9:45 am. She leaves behind, Jacqueline (daughter), Dalton (son), Enroy (son-in-law), Javed, Xavier, Bijonand Ali(grandchildren); siblings, Luna, Neville, Hugh, Sheila, Madge, Glenville and many other family members and friends.
