Junia was one of the most positive human beings I ever had the privilege to have been in the presence of. No matter how many health setbacks was thrown at her, she continued to live in her faith and the power of her God. Junia, whenever I think of you, it will be with memory of your smiles and positive attitude. You will be forever thought of with love. Rest In Perpetual Peace Cuz!

Shawna: I’ve known Junia for more than 50 years. Our friendship started while in Grenada and our migration to the United States drew us closer; here I came to know her as a wonderful and caring friend whose love for her parents was unsurpassed. Yet, she had more love as your birth raised the bar of a mother’s love for a child to an almost unattainable level. As a friend I am deeply saddened by her passing but am comforted that she is without pain sleeping peacefully with her beloved parents and siblings. My friend Junia was a friend indeed because she was a friend even when you were in need. She always took the high road and rewarded betrayal and disappointments with selfless kindness that some might have ignorantly taken for stupidity: on the contrary – she was just kind. It was natural to love Junia because hers was the first Christmas card to arrive in October and she remembered birthdays with an early card followed up by a phone call on the actual day. Her culinary skills were exceptional and even on her visits to Grenada for her vacations she unselfishly took the time to make cheese cakes for my mother Marita Quarless and later on I inherited the favors when I moved back to Grenada. Let her warmth and love continue to keep you in the days ahead. You will continue to be in my prayers. My children and I send our Condolences to you and the rest of her family. Annemarie Quarless Edwards❤️

Sweet Junia was a wonderful baby nurse for our daughter Chloe. I remember that she loved watching basketball and she made the best Mac and cheese! She was always laughing and happy, and a very proud mother, aunt, and grandmother. She also never forgot any of “her babies” birthdates, and called Chloe every year. My condolences to the family. She will be deeply missed.

Junia & I met when I brought her Holy Communion on a Friday morning. Every week after that I looked forward to seeing her. Our visits were short but oh we both liked to talk. The only person In the family I’ve met is Gabriel. After COVID became an issue we would visit by phone. She was a lovely lady but rest assured she will not be forgotten. We learned to love each other & had no hesitation of telling each other so. RIP my sweet friend.

Carla Edwards

My deepest and sincerest condolences go out to Shawna and her pride and joy grandson Gabriel and the rest of the family and friends. May you all find comfort and strength and peace during this difficult time. I work with Lamby as I lovingly called her for over 15 years until her retirement. We kept in touch throughout the years and she kept me abreast of what she was going through. I knew something was wrong when she didn't call me for my birthday or respond to any of my messages. I'm deeply saddened, but at the same time happy to know she is at peace now and no longer suffering. Sleep in sweet peace Lamby. I'll see you in the rapture. Love always Carla

Claudette and I worked together as nurses at Kings County hospital in Brooklyn. As a new nurse in the ER she embraced me and helped me along the way. I will remember her distinctive voice and infectious laughter. She had a positive outlook about her diagnosis and even when setbacks arise she had a strong desire to fight to live. Claudette you cried out and God heard you so no more pain. I know you're resting with the Heavenly angels. Shawna always remember that you and Gabriel were the love of your mother's life so hold on to the memories knowing that she will always be at your side. Claudette my friend may you rest in Eternal Peace

My friend and colleague, I am soooooo heartbroken to know that I didn’t get a chance to see you before you transitioned. If you could’ve have seen how many messages I left and phone calls I made on your phone, hoping that either you or your aide would respond but was unsuccessful. So when I saw that I had missed a call from early that morning, I was excited to speak with once more. Only to know that it was Shauna who had called to have me the devastating news of your demise. If I didn’t have to be in Trinidad to visit my brother (who passed 3 days ago, I wouldn’t have missed your funeral.. I cherished our friendship and we were like 2 peas in a pod because we were always together. You never forgot a birthday or an anniversary . I will cherished the memories Lammy. You fought a good fight and now that you have completed your life’s race, you have earned your wings so fly high my dear friend. My sons and I extend our condolences to your entire family. May you rest in eternal peace

My sweet Junia was an incredible human being. She was kind, thoughtful, funny, and intelligent. I will miss our conversations and her beautiful smile and laugh. Junia knew me since I was born and took on the role of an unofficial Godmother with love. I will miss Junia always and forever. The way Junia adored and loved Gabriel was beautiful and heartwarming. May she be forever at peace. I offer condolences to Shawna, Gabriel, and her whole family. Junia was truly a gem.

Pearl Stiell

Marlene Lambert

My sister-in lawJunia and me shared nursing and as a result understood what it took to be a nurse. Junia was one who spoke out and advocated for her patients during her career. She gave more than she took. Junia took time to help everyone and now that your days down here are over, there is place up there for you. Rest In Peace and you will be missed ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Yolande Stuart

Alicia Bruno

I am late but just had to say something about my friend. I spoke to her earlier this year and I'm so happy that I was able to. She would always call me when she was in Brooklyn and I would always go and spend time with her. She was truly a gem and a good soul. I will miss our conversations and her cheerful disposition as she always managed to laugh even though she was feeling under the weather at times. So so long my friend, heaven welcomes you and until we meet again.

Adrian and Liesl Glace

My dear Aunty Junior, Whenever I pass close to Nostrand Ave , you always come to mind. You were like a mother to me whenever I needed to chat. You may be gone from this world but your memories will live on in my heart,. We had many conversations while having lunch you cooked and that good old carrot cake or just learning from you how to give my kids their first bath! I cherish those moments and will always love and miss you!!! Godspeed!!!!
