Many friends and family gathered at Clarke & Battoo Funeral Chapel to pay respects to Jean Pearse who died at age 84yrs. old.
There was a wide cross section of persons upon whom Agba Jean had had an impact as their lives met.
There were many persons in their sixties, and seventies present.
The commemoration was a bit different to those I had previously experienced but I think that it was befitting of the person being honoured.
Agba Jean we were told introduced puppetry into Tobago.
Jean’s house/home was a hub of social and cultural activity and all present attested to her warmth and friendliness.
Jean was the elder sister of Apoeso Mutope.
Also present at the funerary rites was new Caricom Cultural Ambassador, Chief Servant Makandal Daaga and members of his family.
The Cultural Ambassador is in law to Jean Pearse.
As AGBA JEAN CONTINUES ON HER JOURNEY WE PRAY THAT SHE WILL POSITIVELY TRANSFORM AND BE INCLUDED IN THE HALL OF GLORIOUS ANCESTORS.
Agba Jean will be buried in Tobago where she spent the last twenty four years of her life.
Once again strength to all members of her lineage and family.
