BODYGUARD WEMISS HINDS LOSES BATTLE

By EWALT AINSWORTH                              03 10 2014

Very early Monday March 3rd in the Caribbean basin and ethnic enclave of Irvington there was a hush…a loud one too.  Tears were a poor substitute for horror. Danger lurked in the vanity room and a woman of distinction and abiding faith was fighting for her life.  The life of Sister Wemiss Grovesnor-Hinds was just about expired and the clarion call went out for a legal professional to come sit bed side.  Medical emergency crews had arrived but the focus was about disposing of her worldly possessions and legacy.

Wemiss turned 66 in February and was a shut-in for both church and Lodge meetings.  There were whispers about seasonal affective disorder; they were merely whispers. 

Sometimes she made arrangements to be picked up by her lodge brothers only to throw a bloomer at the last minute.  Most relatives and friends kept their distance and phone on vibrate pondering her declining health.

God answers prayers and no sooner  a legal advocate sat with her and completed her last will and testimony, the spritely young lady with her eye lids only, signaled ta-ta;

Wemiss was a decorated Commissioned Police Officer on assignment with the Presidential Guard in the Burnham era.   The former bodyguard worked for years with Comrade Vi… Ms. Viola Burnham .  She was very efficient and effective as a local team leader and has deep roots in the Danielstown community in Essequibo.  She has an adult son.

Exceptionally private but fierce as a parent, Wemiss did not discuss her health status after the passing of her husband two years ago. Her public appearances were minimal but her struggles with a debilitating illness were never revealed or up for discussion.  Women do not find each other trusting, especially in this technology age; the culture has to change if wellness is to be maintained. Further I say not.

On Friday March 14, at 5.00 pm Wemiss will be funeralised at the COTTON funeral home on Bergen Street in Newark NJ.  COTTON COMES TO KIMBIA AGAIN is the way some deaths are announced.
The Lodge will be involved and parking will be at a premium.

Meanwhile a memorial service will be held on Saturday in Washington for Dr Lawrence Clark, a director of the World Bank based in Mozambique;
Dr Clark is a native of Plaisance and Queens College is his Alma Mata.
