Charlestown-Nevis- The sad news made its rounds throughout Nevis and the wider world very quickly on Sunday 13th September: Former long serving Educator, Ms Estella Irene Blackett had passed.
Ms Blackett, who has been ill for an extended period, was transferred from the Joseph N. France general hospital on Saturday 12th September and placed at the Alexandra Hospital in Nevis, where she died at about 9.30 am on Sunday 13th September.
The jovial, community minded, christian woman, served her community well. She was an outstanding teacher, especially as it relates to the teaching of French and Spanish; an accomplished musician and organist; choir director; school supervisor and a very active church person.
She was also well known for her keen sense of humour, words of kindness and constant smile.
Family members have indicated that a very special home going service is being planned and will probably take place within the next two weeks.
