A truly remarkable person, ambassador, friend and community matriarch with a heart of gold and a joy to be with. Sr Gilda was a ray of sunshine on a gloomy day and a beacon of distinction. God bless this angel as he welcomes her home as her journey on earth is complete. Gone but never forgotten.

Dear Sister Gilda, you will always be remembered with a smile form my heart. I have very fond memories of my young days with you attending concert practice, play times, preparing for holy communion and confirmation, or just visiting you and spending time with you. You were ever smiling and a joy to be with. I remember those days with such joy. That was a long time ago in Grenada and seeing you again when you visited me at work when you came to England - wow - what a surprise and pleasure seeing you after all these years - still the same Sister Gilda I remembered all those years ago. Sister Gilda you are always have been and always will be a 'SHINING BEACON' to me and all those you have touched with your generous spirit. God Bless you as he circles you with his Love and outstretched arms. May his Angels guide you safely towards his leading light.
PEACE, LOVE & GOD'S BLESSINGS

To a great lady who always gave 100% to everyone but asked for nothing in return, rest in peace Sister Gilda.

Sister Gilda your memories will live on, as we have many, many cherished ones, from the bus trips, summer camps in Quarintine Station, Rosary Club, Christmas Plays and most of all those many nights that Denise and I slept with you, keeping you company from those lonely nights.
Apart from my parents and my Aunty Vel, Sister Gilda has had the biggest impact on my life. When I reflect on my love for the young asnd my commitment to improve those innocent lives, I can credit no one else but Sister Gilda.
When we depart this life we will be remembered not by the amount of money that we left behind but by the many lives that we have touched.
Gone but will never be forgotten.
RIP SISTER GILDA

Everyone has that special someone who touched them in a very special way! Sister Gilda was one of those SPECIAL ones. She brought out in others, talents and gifts that they didn't even know they possessed. She helped you to dig deep inside your soul to find those special treasures that God endowed you with. She made a difference in so many young lives. She made a huge impact in my life and the lives of many others. She was strict, our biggest cheerleader and fun to be around. She contributed to the awesome childhood that I had. I could go on and on...... Sister Gilda was amazing and part of the community that raised up a ton of great kids! May your soul Rest In Peace??❤️??
