Together the had six children,May,James,Cleveland, George,Sam, and Thelma aka Burnie being the youngest of them all and the last one that went to be with lord at the age of 88. Thelma attended Roman Catholic school and Brethren Church in the Village. Thelma spent sometime in Berbice and later moved to Georgetown where she lived up until moving to the Uk. The mother of two children Linden and June. Thelma used her craft cooking and sewing to maintain her family. She worked at prominent hotels in Guyana Belvedere and Friends as a cook. She worked with the Fung-A-Fats and the late sisters Lynette and Celis Dolphin. Thelma also bought and sold items at Bourda Market in Georgetown. In year 1988 Thelma left Guyana to join the Bennette’s family, where she met and married the late Albert Lee. She worked as a dinner lady and occasionally at the south African Embassy. She loved her Heavenly Father and she shouted that very loud for all to hear. She attended Brook Street Chapel, Bruce Grove until she was no longer able to do so on her own. But was intouch with the Minster John and Wife Janice who she appreciated very much. She also visited Hornsey Rise Baptise Church on several occasions and had a few home visits from Pastor George who saw her a few weeks before she passed. She was selfless and a mother to many, the doors of her home was opened to everyone that seek her help or other wise. Very witty and always the one in the room to make to laugh. She was fearless to the end. She Loved her family especially her late brothers, she always had a story to tell about them, it got even worse when the brains went back in times. She would always call on them to protect her, they surely didn’t get to rest in peace for her, they sure will now. Her moto was to always remember the good one has done for you not the bad. What more can I say about this precious sole that has departed the land of the living. She departed peacefully with a gratitude look on her face at her home in Wood Green. She will never be forgotten. There is a time to be born and a time to die, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and time to dance.
