Gee and Her Floral Arranging Life
Over fifty years ago, Gee moved to Jamaica with her husband and two children. He was on assignment from Trinidad, as a manager of the national airline’s office. The first of eight children, and an active member in keeping her family together in spite of the fact that her siblings lived in different countries, Gee found it difficult to leave her home island. However, the thrill of being at the side of her spouse as he created a legacy in the airline industry helped her to overcome her reluctance to uproot her children and raise them in what at the time was considered “foreign territory.” Being a people person, Gee made friends in those first years who have lasted the entire time that she has lived in Jamaica. She is now eighty-nine years old, and keeps up with buddies who are in their seventies and eighties, as part of a flower club, church groups, and neighborhood coteries that still remember “the good old days.”
