In Loving Memory of Ernesta E. Greenidge
Ernesta E. Greenidge, née Bryce, beloved wife of the late Patrick E.H. Greenidge, and former Deputy Librarian and Head of the Medical Sciences Library at The UWI St. Augustine, passed away peacefully on the morning of February 27, 2024, at her family home at Bryce Terrace, St Augustine, Trinidad and Tobago.
Born in Port-of-Spain on October 28, 1951, Ernesta was the cherished daughter of Mary Louise Bryce (née Phillip) and Gerald F. Bryce. A former Toronto resident, and graduate of York University and the University of Toronto, Ernesta was a devoted mother to Dr. Chanzo O. Greenidge, mother-in-law of Vanessa R. Chaperlin, and a loving grandmother to Ana Marie Greenidge Ménard, Acacia L. Greenidge, and Maya R. Greenidge. Ernesta was also a loving sister to Gerald Bryce, Judith Bryce-White, and Miriam Bryce. She is preceded in death by her dear brothers Beresford and David Bryce. She was the sister-in-law of Theodore Cathy Bryce.
She was a relative of the Boca, Harris, Li, Roberts families of Trinidad, Brice, Bynoe and Holder families of Barbados, and the Phillip and Collins families of Grenada. She was Aunt of Kim, Kelvin, Masika, Moishe, Munashe, Paterina, Rochelle, Tameka, and many others. She was Great Aunt of Aanisah, Aidan, Allina, Amaya, Annali, Brianna, Christopher Jr., Lola, Theo, Zain, Zoria, and many others. She was the godmother of Tahirah A.C. Ward, and a faithful friend of Linda Claudia DeFour, Martha Preddie, Karen Kubota and many others. She was also a mentor to many in the profession of librarianship and information science. 
 May Ernesta rest in eternal peace, knowing she was deeply loved by her family and friends.

Mrs. G. as I fondly called you as my supervisor at the MSL. I will always remember you as a kind, sincere and generous person. Who loved and cared for her staff. We shared so many memories and laughs as a unit (i.e. Audio Visual Unit, MSL). You taught me so much, but the one thing that would always stand out is your attention to detail. Working with you was indeed a pleasure.
I would always remember the last time I saw you. You were in your usual lively, and happy self, yet proper, the usual Mrs. G. trademark.
Sorry, I was not able to give you the visit as I had planned but I am grateful that I got to speak to you .

Mrs. Ernesta Greenidge or EG. as she was referred to by the Staff of the Medical Sciences Library was our Head of Department but she made us feel like family. She knew that maintaining a healthy relationship with Staff enhanced productivity. We were aware that she genuinely cared about our wellbeing.
After my retirement, Mrs. Greenidge agreed to proofread a manuscript that I was working on. It was a lot but she was so happy to offer her service free of charge.
She was very present at my book launch in 2020 and I felt so privileged to have someone of her stature there.
We communicated regularly in the past four years. I visited her at her home last February and really hoped to return but never got the opportunity.
I will miss her dearly, her sense of humour despite her health challenge she was still able to smile and enjoy a good joke when necessary.
EG you are not here to correct any errors I would have made in the construction of this tribute (you spot these errors from a distance) but I have the assurance that you have made a peaceful transition. We mourn but we are encouraged by the fact that you have fulfilled purpose.
Sincere condolences to Chanzo and the rest of the family.
