ForeverMissed
A mother of five boys and a loving Grandmother to 18 grandchildren who was dearly loved by her sisters, cousins, nieces, nephews, aunts and friends. An incredible Public Servant who worked within the Port Morant Community for over 30 years dedicating her life to helping others in her beloved community. She has touched so many lives with her kindness and wise words of wisdom which goes beyond measure. A mother who sacrifices so much for her children and was admired by so many communities, will be remembered forever.

This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Elvina Rattery . We will remember her forever.

I can still remember the first time we met. All the fun times we had. The mischief we got ourselves
into, playing pranks on our teachers. Always stopping to catch up every now and then, never thinking that you would have gone so soon. Memories are for keeps. Sleep in peace Miss Ethlyn. May light perpetual shine on you.

I wasn't ready
To see you leave
I knew the possibilities
And that it was inevitable
But I'm still in total disbelief

I just wasn't ready
It was way too soon
I questioned God, the sun, stars and the moon

I wasn't ready
I know you did all you needed to do
Now that you are gone
I'm really missing you.
I miss your calls, I miss our talks under the common mango tree,
other small moments only you and I shared
are now treasured memories for me.

Thank you for making me a part of your circle, your family,
You were a mom, a friend and a confidante to me,
I admired your faith, your fearlessness despite all you went through.
You always said, "God a God!"
And I know he prepared a special place for you!
Love always

Ratttrey, you were a true friend. Never did I think that I'd be doing this so soon, that is, saying goodbye. God knows best, He knew you were suffering,though we could not see . So happy that I visited you 2 days before you transitioned into your heavenly abode.
May you rest in eternal peace.

I have know her for most of my life and can honestly say she was the most selfless lady one could ever imagine. She's a protector, friend, motivator and most dependable person I was blessed with knowing in my life time. We have lost a gem something now rear in today's existence. I pray this is really for the best and she is at his right hand because nothing else makes sense in a loss so great. Forever etched in my heart are fonds memories of your time with us, gone but forever in our hearts of hearts. Our love will find you and comfort you wherever you are.

Ms.Elvina Rattery (Rattery) you gave birth to five (5) sons but I was the daughter you never had no matter what the situation was we were always apart of each other's life. You were there for every major milestone in my life the birth of my son , my graduation. parties, my wedding. You never judged or stopped loving despite not been your daughter in law we built a unbreakable bond. But God knows best rest in peace until we meet again. I am sure the angels will love your baking and your love and compassion for others.

If kindness, love, dedication and loyalty was a person, its Elvina Rattery. You were my go to person, my adviser, my comforter when times got rocky. Treated me like a daughter. I took so much comfort in knowing that I could call you at anytime & you would pick up. I will forever miss your daily phone calls just to asked 'u good'?.
I thank God I had you in my life & I will cherish our times spent together. Sleep in peace my dearest.. ❤❤❤❤❤❤

I will miss our almost daily talks, the way you’d tell me I look beautiful one day and the next criticise my hair or something, we’d talk about everything and sometimes nothing but most of all the joy it brings you talking to and watching your grandchildren get up to all kinds of mischief, I will always make sure they remember you and know that you loved them. You were a beautiful soul and we will miss you. Love you Miss Rattery ❤️

This community MOTHER has merely left this place to get rest after all her years of service and love for us. People like you never die, you simply transition. We all now need to set our houses in order to meet up with you again in that better place.

With utmost gratitude and love.

An incredible woman, who lives her life knowing that she was loved by her five sons, sisters, cousins,and friends. A mother who sacrifices everything for her sons and always willing to help others. On 14th October 2020, this world lost a beacon which can never be replaced. My love for you will never die, I will miss you but your memories will live with me forever.
Love you my candle in the wind and thanks for those years! I am what i am because of you.

Don't Cry For Me© by Deborah Garcia

Shared by Donoval James on October 20, 2020

Published: September 2015

Don't cry for me.
I will be okay.
Heaven is my home now,
and this is where I'll stay.

Don't cry for me.
I'm where I belong.
I want you to be happy
and try to stay strong.

Don't cry for me.
It was just my time,
but I will see you someday
on the other side.

Don't cry for me.
I am not alone.
The angels are with me
to welcome me home.

Don't cry for me,
for I have no fear.
All my pain is gone,
and Jesus took my tears.

Don't cry for me.
This is not the end.
I'll be waiting here for you
when we meet again.
