The following eulogy (edited) was delivered by Lynette King-Taitt at the December 30 funeral Mass for her mother, Gwendoline Hilda King at St Theresa’s RC Church, Malick, Barataria.
Today let us celebrate the life of Gwendoline King. She was born on May 30, 1925 and died on December 24, 2017, Christmas Eve. She was the daughter of Fredrica Phill-Romain and John Cadiz. She had one brother, Hilary Moses, who passed away. Her childhood took her to many areas in Trinidad which included San Fernando, La Brea and Laventille.
As she moved along she made many friends some of whom were her friends up to today. She was married to Clement King, a secondary school teacher in December 1946 and that union produced four children, Gerald and Michael (both deceased), Lynette and Pamela.
