Jacquie Ryan (parent of former pupils)
“Truly, truly Sorry to learn of Miss Stevens passing.  Such a gracious woman an a brilliant educator.  She had a major hand in molding my children’s youth and setting a great standard in the early years of their education.  Judy and Nicole will be truly saddened by her passing.  She lived in their memory all these years and I know they will not ever forget her.”

Another wrote: “I am very sad over this news. Miss Catherine Stevens was a gracious lady who gave of her all to the island of Montserrat and who was a valuable asset to the island’s education system. (She ran what was called at the time a pre-school).

Toni Frederick (a former pupil): “She was quite a lady, our Miss Stevens.  I’ll remember her fondly.  I mean, she introduced us to Shakespeare at five years old!  How cool is that?!  We used to have to greet her and say goodbye in French. Au revoir, Miss Stevens…”

She will be missed by many of the current adults of Montserrat who were her pupils at St Christopher’s in Foxes Bay.”

The information said, “She was looking forward to receiving her telegram from HM the Queen when she reached her 100th birthday, but it was not to be.”

Camille Frith Roach remembers her from 26 years ago and says, “she was a good teacher too. I remember she had two lovely German shepherd dogs. Please convey my condolences.”

Shirley Spycalla (parent of former pupil): “Miss Catherine Stevens was a gracious lady who gave of her all to the island of Montserrat and who was a valuable asset to the island’s education system.  Stevie, as we all knew her, will be missed by many of the adults of Montserrat who were her pupils at St Christopher’s Primary School in Foxes Bay. May she rest in peace.”
