ForeverMissed
Our beloved mom was called home by her Heavenly Father on March 19, 2021. We will lay her to rest on April 26 next to our dad, which was her desire, at Meadowrest Memorial Gardens in St. Catherine, Jamaica. Due to Jamaica's limitations on burials and restrictions on funerals, unfortunately, only a limited number of family members will be able to attend.

A memorial service will however be held to celebrate her life later in the year once COVID-19 restrictions have loosened up. For those wanting to send floral arrangements, please send before April 26 to:

Morgan's Funeral Home
(in memory of Hyacinth Davis)
16 Wellington Street
Spanish Town, St. Catherine
Jamaica
We created this site to share some of the many memories of our mommy who to some was grandma, Hya, Ms. D., Aunt Hya and so much more. We know she touched many other lives so we invite you to share memories and stories of your own.

Thank you all for your outpouring of love and support during this time. We will remember her fondly and forever.

They say that it takes a village to raise a child and my Aunt Hya was truly part of that village. She played an intricate part in the raising of both myself and my sister by opening her doors for us. Her floral love is the reason why I purchase flowers weekly! I am happy that in her final days she was virtually able to communicate with me and meet my family. Rest well Aunt Hya!

To Andrew and family., my condolences. You know as a kid, a little boy so long ago, growing up with Andrew in Brooklyn NYC off Caton ave. As our friendship grew, Mrs. Hyacinth accepted me as one of her own into her home. She open her doors reminded me without any hesitation, that I was welcome anytime and I knew she meant it. That meant a lot to me then and will always stay with me. You know back home in Jamaica growing up with my grandparents. You were told to 'never wear out your welcome' in anybodies yard. I don't know how I or anyone else could do so in Mrs. Hyacinth's house. She made her home my home and I knew that I could show up anytime. Mrs. Hyacinth's house was my home away from home. I express my gratitude to Mrs. Hyacinth
and Andrew, thank you for sharing your mom with me as I was coping and growing up during those trying days of my youth. Again my condolences to you and family. Sprout

To Andrew and Family:

While it is very difficult to accept the passing of the ones we love dearest. Mrs Davis have lived 90 good years, please take this moment to reflect on the great time you had and shared, from Brunswick Avenue, Spanish Town, to the USA. She did it her way, with class and dignity with you by her side.

My sincerest of condolences to you and your family, as we honor and thank Mrs. Davis for the time she gave us, while she bit us farewell.

I thank you for being more than an aunt to me. You were always willing to help everyone in whatever way you can. Everyone has a favorite aunt and you were the one for me. Whenever I need someone to talk with, I would always call aunt Hya. You would always say some comforting words and then we would reminisce about life at home in Jamaica, especially your dear Edgar's jokes (we would have so much laughter on the phone). Aunt Hya, I will surely miss our weekend telephone talks and I will always love you. Rest In Peace my dear aunt.

It is so difficult to say goodbye to those you know and love. I will always recall the many days spent at Brunswick Avenue sitting in the vegetable garden that you loved so much and how we reminisced of the great days in that wonderful Spanish Town. It was like going to the conservatory for inspiration and cultural refreshment .... great memories.

Our hope is in the future. Death ends one chapter but love continues in the other.

Always in my heart,
Your brother Alvyn

Sharing in the sadness of the Davis family, I’d like to express my deepest condolences to all who knew and loved Mrs. Davis. I hadn’t had the pleasure of meeting her personally but through the memories shared by her son, I know her warm spirit, wisdom and love will truly be missed. Sleep in peace Ms. Hyacinth... with much love from the Fyffe/Scott family.

Mrs. Davis as I reflect on my youthful days, I can’t help but smile. You were one of the solid foundations that helped with my growth. A light that will forever shine in my heart. Sleep in perfect peace Mrs. Davis, until we meet again!

My mom (Jennifer) would tell me stories of how it was growing up in your household and we would both laugh about them.You were such an inspiration in her life and we thank you. May you continue to live on through those you have touched. We love you aunt Hya and may your soul Rest In Peace

Mrs Davis although I didn't know you I heard a lot about you, your son is fine individual. My condolences to the family, stay strong and God be with in your time of bereavement.
Posted by Lincoln, Karla Salmon on March 27, 2021
Mrs. D, As you continue your journey, I would be remiss in not saying how much I admired you. 
Our conversations over the years will most certainly stay with me. Your poise and strong conviction showed me why your son is half the man he is today; your legacy lives on not only in him but in all lives you have touched, including mines. 
You're loved by many, and we all are holding tight to the great memories of you; it gives us all comfort and courage as we face the future. 
My parting words are the verse of a song;
"God be with you till we meet again, by his counsel's guide uphold you with his sheep securely fold you;
God be with you till we meet again."
Walk good, One love

her Life
Hyacinth was many things to all of us. Mother, wife, grandmother, sister, aunt, friend. In every aspect of all that she was, she was unique; she was exceptional. 
Hya possessed grace, dignity, and caring, which was the envy of many. Like her late mother, she earned our love and respect without ever assuming she was entitled to it. Simply stated, she was a woman of faith and character, believing with all her heart in what they called "helping out" or doing for others. 
Those of us who knew Aunt Hya understood that her life was premised on the belief that what mattered was not what one got out of life but instead what one contributes. It seemed that she always sought to serve others--family, friends, and strangers even. She was kind, finding it almost impossible not to support those in need. She was grounded in her Christian belief that “helping others” was, in the end, the fastest and surest means of making one's own life one of contentment. 
Family meant the world to grandma. She developed a sense of peace with God, understanding that peace would not offer any guarantees from pain and suffering. The Methodist church and its teachings were at the core of how she lived her life. She knew every Charles Wesley hymn humming them effortlessly.  Her life was guided by a sort of Methodist wisdom that translated into a knowledge and love of Wesley, his life, and his music. In her earlier days as a Sunday school teacher at the Methodist Church in Spanish Town, she emphasized more than anything his music and believed the lyrics were the heart of good Christian fellowship.
I would be remiss if I did not quote John Wesley in how you lived your life mom, “Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.”
We love you.

Dear Aunt Hyacinth

Dear Aunt Hyacinth, rest in peace and glory.  I certainly remember and miss fondly spending long hours in the Spanish Market with you as after shopping we'd wait on Hopeton; the long drives to St. Ann to eat fish and bammy, and on the way home you negotiating prices we would pay for produce from the Bog Walk venders who knew you and called out Ms. D for you to shop with them.  And recently, sitting with you watching the wrestling matches.  Those dear memories are making me smile and cry but I'm so glad I have them.  Rest now Dearest Aunt.

Aunt Hya,

Dearest Aunt Hya you are gone but you will be deeply missed and never forgotten.It was always a pleasure talking with her, she was so funny reminiscing about the stories of the olden days. I could always expect a call on my birthday and she knew everyone’s birthday. I was often told that she named me when I was born.
Rest In Peace now you are home, no more pain but you are with Mr Davis where you can continue to reminisce and laugh about the olden days
