Obituary of Louise A Bartley

Please share a memory of Louise to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Louise Annie Bartley, 94 years old, was born on July 14, 1928, to the parents of Merilda Mitchell Hall and Louis Auld in the parish of Manchester, Jamaica. Louise was predeceased by a host of brothers and sisters all of Jamaica, including four sisters Cherry, Carmen, Edna, Etta, Deloris (Sweet), Magata (Madge) and Caroline (Sister Peteney) and her brothers Cleveland, George, Vincent, Robert, and Tom. She is survived by three brothers Herman (Basile) of New York, Barrington (Beamon) of Canada, Winston (Earl) of Jamaica plus two sisters Janette (Blooming) of Jamaica and Cornet of Jamaica. Louise was a single mother with a child, Leroy Myrie (Lois), when she met Ernest Brown to whom she later married. Their union produced six children: Yvonne Savery (Gersham), Roselyn Brown, Trevor Brown (Faye), Valerie Morrison (Gresford), Headley Brown (Marcia), and Angela Pace (Rodney). With her formal education in the Jamaican school system, Louise became a businesswoman buying and selling produces at the Mandeville Market while Ernest worked with theJamaican Bauxite. But unfortunately, the union ended when Ernest passed away at a young age in 1963 and Louise was left to care for the children. In 1965, Louise married Charles Bartley and their union later produced one child, Julian Bartley, who is now residing in Jamaica. Charles worked with the Farmworkers Program and spent most of his time overseas while Louise cared for the children in Jamaica. After Louise made suitable living arrangements for her children with family members, she migrated to the United States in 1972 to join Charles in Vermont. Going from her warm sunny Jamaica to a very cold Vermont was a shock to her but she was able to endure the very harsh winters for the sake of her family. She spent two years in Vermont working on an apple orchard alongside Charles. In 1974, through the efforts of Godfrey Sterling, cousin of Charles, they were able move to Vineland and later purchased a house. Louise worked as a seamstress with several clothing factories in Vineland while Charles worked as a Machinist with Dougherty Brothers in Buena. After the clothing factories began to close and moved overseas, she found employment with the Atlantis Hotel & Casino (Trump Plaza) where she worked until she retired. It was always her dream to have all her children migrated to the United States and she was successful in fulfilling this dream. Louise was a dedicated and faithful member of the Church of God of Prophecy in Jamaica and New Jersey. Louise and Valerie Morrison (daughter) spent several years traveling to various church events in Delaware, which she enjoyed tremendously. Louise was consistent in demonstrating her strong faith in the Lord and could be heard saying, "Praise God and Praise the Lord," even on the day she went home to be with the Lord. Louise was a very loving mother and grandmother who enjoyed cooking for her children and grandchildren. Louise leaves behind 27 grandchildren, 42 great grandchildren, and 5 great-great grandchildren.
