Obituary

Verna Claire Bertramwas born in Spanish Town, Kingston,
Jamaica, where she was raised by her grandmother and
parents. She gave her heart to the Lord Jesus as a teenager
at a church revival. As a young woman, she left Jamaica
to attend Zion College in Chattanooga, TN and graduated
with a Liberal Arts degree in 1954.
In 1956, she married Eric in New York City. She returned
to Jamaica in 1959, and devoted herself to raising their
two children, Hugh and Kathy. The family immigrated to
London, England in 1964. Verna trained as a nurse and
earned a position as a staff nurse in the British National
Health System. The family returned to the United States in
1968, at which time Verna went back to school and earned
an associates degree from Philadelphia Community
College and eventually a Bachelor of Science in Nursing
from Medgar Evers College, New York City. She worked at
Mount Sinai Hospital for 17 years, primarily as a Senior
Clinical Nurse in Psychiatry. In addition, she worked as an
Administrative Supervisor for 15 years at Bronx Lebanon
Hospital, NY. She retired in 2005 and moved to Florida.
Verna became a member of The Faith Center working with
the nursing home group for 14 years.
She loved dancing, singing, and fellowshipping with her
friends and family. Most people were drawn to her warm
and cheerful personality. Verna’s favorite two things were
showing her love for the Lord Jesus through study and
sharing the Gospel and vacationing with her family.
She is preceded by her husband, Eric; son, Hugh; parents,
Joseph and Lucille; brothers, Lionel, Carlton, and Winston;
and sisters, Elaine, Pearl, and Norma. She leaves behind
to cherish her memories: her daughter, Kathy (Thomas)
Bryant of Aurora, CO; grand-daughter, Stefanie (Edson)
Mukundwi of North Las Vegas; 4 grandchildren, Ethan,
Elle, Evan, and Emery; sister Marjorie (Lionel) Hewitt
of Leeds, England; Hillary Jordon, (Carlton), Kingston,
