Obituary

Ariel Alvina Austin was the six of seven children born to the late, Ira Elaine Austin and Rupert Greaves on June 8, 1962, on the beautiful island of Barbados, West Indies. Alvina as we loving called her was an amazing and dynamic woman, but feisty in her own ways. She was the Amazon of our family.

As a product of All Saint’s Girls School, she graduated from 4th standard and went on to Community High School up to 5th grade in Barbados. She had a passion to play netball and after graduation, she formed a team and they played netball with various schools throughout Barbados.

Shortly thereafter, she migrated to St. Thomas, Virgin Islands to be with her mother and sister Vonie Austin-James in order to make a better life for herself. Finding it difficult to get a job in the Virgin Islands at that time, Alvina relocated to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and worked at several jobs to support herself.

Alvina continued to advance herself academically and went to Dillard High School and earned her High School Diploma, graduating with the class of 1994. She became a U.S. citizen on May 10, 1999 and was self-sufficient while working at various jobs.

Alvina gave birth to two amazing sons while living in Florida, Jason Michael Austin (who is here today) and Julian Anthony Brown, Jr. who is now deceased.

Alvina followed her passion while in Florida and became a member of the Caricom Sports & Social Club, Inc., Netball Association. She held a position as the secretary for over eight years. She also was a member of Faith Deliverance Cathedral located in Hollywood. Florida for many years.

Just like how netball was her passion, she was also passionate about nursing. She attended Concord Career Institute in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and became a Certified Medical Assistant, (CMA) in 1995. Taking it a step further, she attended Sheridan Vocational Institute in Hollywood, Florida, and graduated as a Licensed Practical Nurse, (LPN). She was not satisfy with being a LPN because nursing was one of her passion. So with this in mind, she took it still a step further and attended Broward Community College and after graduating with her degree, she took the state’s test and passed it to become a Registered Nurse, in 2005.

On March 1, 1999, Alvina worked at Broward General Medical Center, in Fort Lauderdale and was promoted from LPN to an RN:PCU/Telemetry. From 2004 to 2007, she continued working at Broward General as a staff RN as she prepared patients for surgical and diagnostic procedures, initiate and maintained intravenous therapy. Some of her additional skills were to triage patients, assess them for critical care, monitor intubated patients and respond to codes.

She worked at Broward General Hospital in various capacities for a number of years and in the Emergency Room for three years as a Registered Nurse. She later resigned from there on December 24, 2014 to become a travelling nurse. While working in that capacity, she was able to deliver competent on-time and quality patient care to all of her patients.

She worked at various hospitals in Calfornia, Ocala-Florida, San Antonio-Texas, Hudson-Florida, Stuart-Florida, Okeecobee-Florida, Fort Lauderdale-Florida, Modesto-California, Los Banos-California, Clovis-California, Jackson-California, Hollywood-Florida, and her last assignment was in Stockton-California.

She received a Certificate of Recognition in 2004 for outstanding service and dedication to the profession of nursing by Broward General Medical Center in conjunction with National Nurses Week. In addition, she was given a Certificate of Merit by Broward General Medical Center SWAT Committee for participation as a SWAT representation in 2006.

She was a well-qualified nurse and received certification in Telemetry and Phlebotomy; BCLS and ACLS. In addition she was proficient in the Emergency Room with preceptor skills, conscious sedation, titration of vasoactive drugs; patient and family education and EKG.

She was very detail-oriented, dedicated and patient-focused with proven strengths in acute patient care, staff development and family advocacy. She was always eager to learn and meet new challenges, as she assimilate new concepts and ideas quickly.

She was licensed in the states of California, Florida, Texas, Minnesota and Arizona. She was recognized for “outstanding patent care” by many patients on a recurring basis.

She also had an eye for décor and could decorate any room like it was done by an interior decorator. She was very motivated and committed to any task that was at hand and her mantra was always, “Put God first in everything you do.”

Whenever she was in Florida, she would accompanied me to the church I was attending that Sunday. She was not the same after her son’s death as she continued to struggle with grief. On top of that she was dealing with her own health issues but continue to fight with God’s help. Many times she would cry out to God for His help to sustain her in the journey. Today, we can say that she has fought a good fight and finish her course.

Ariel Alvina Austin, we loved you and will miss you; but your legacy will live on in the lives of your family and friends. So on today, we salute you on your promotion!!! Sleep well my sister, Sisters.
