St Patrick’s, Newtown parishioner Marguerite Rosario Escalante died Sunday, September 27. She was 96 years old. Fellow parishioner Beatrice Beddoe-McShine pays tribute.
On Sunday, September 27, the parish of St Patrick’s, Newtown was very saddened to hear of the passing of Marguerite Rosario Escalante, one of our oldest parishioners.
In 1965, I moved to Woodbrook and joined the Legion of Mary at St Patrick’s, having previously been a member at the parish of St Francis, Belmont. It was in this setting that I met Marguerite Escalante, well-dressed as she had just come from work at the Port of Spain City Corporation.
