VICTORIA’S COUNT RAWNA DIES IN LONDON

VICTORIA’S COUNT RAWNA DIES IN LONDON

By Waltie Ainsworth

last Sunday in Brooklyn Victorians aborted their winter garb to bid farewell to one of their very own, Mr. Carlton Kingston 83 who died after a prolonged illness.  In Guyana he spent his productive years working in the bauxite industry in Linden.  It was at this ceremony, it was announced that his cousin, Ovid Count Rawna Hoppie-Beaton  had also died.

Count Rawna had migrated to London since in the 60s and was known in the community for his magical footworks and dancing style.  He was also a jazz enthusiast.

Apparently Rawna died the same week like his Mom, Cousin Florie Beaton and another sister, Dame Linette Hoppie.  Linette’s son Leroy Jeggae on March 19th had a basic memorial lime at his home in Canarsie Brooklyn to observe the 20th and 1st death anniversaries of his Granny and Mom respectively.

At this lime, the message came thru that Count Rawna was not doing so well but from all accounts he expired within the same time frame of his mom and sibling before him.  His remains have since been taken to Guyana and his current wife, who hails from Sierra Leone, is heading up a team of mourners for the funeral on Sunday April 24th in Victoria.
