The Honourable Minister of Health & Social Services Colin Riley visited Mrs. Ponde on Wednesday morning to congratulate her and wish her well. He also presented her with a fruit basket courtesy of the Department of Community Services.

Greetings poured in on the Spirit of Montserrat Facebook page with many remembering her famous plate tart and goat water which she made for the annual Easter Monday Garden Party for the St. George’s Anglican Church where she was an active member.

She had ten children of which seven are surviving – two residing in the USA and five in the UK. She was a seamstress and lived most of her life on Montserrat. Although Mrs. Ponde relocated to the UK in 2000, she did not like it and returned to Montserrat in 2002.
