April 27, 1929 – San Fernando, Trinidad and Tobago
June 3, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta
It is with deep sorrow that the family of Eurydice (DC) Rampersad announces the passing of our beloved mother and grandmother on Tuesday, June 3, 2014 at the age of 85.
DC was born to Kenneth and Florence Ramsaran in the town of San Fernando, Trinidad and Tobago in 1929. In 1955 after a brief courtship, DC married the love of her life, Edward Rampersad. In 1967 she left her native Trinidad with four young children in tow to join Edward in Calgary to begin a new life. Calgary became home to DC and Ed and they soon met many new wonderful neighbors whom they remained close friends with for some forty-seven years! Those whose life DC touched will always remember her as an extremely caring and giving woman who cherished her family.
DC is survived by her five children, Sherryl (Colin), Dale (Judy), Kerry, Derek, and Mel (Michele). She was the loving grandmother to seven lucky grandchildren, Ryan, David, Lindsey, Sarah, Mark, Matthew, and Jack. DC is also survived by many cherished nieces, nephews and dear friends. She was predeceased by her loving husband of fifty-three years Edward, who passed away in 2008; and her beloved brothers, Nicodemus, Enoch and Festus.
A Celebration of DC’s Life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S, Chapel of the Bells (2720 Centre Street North) on Saturday, June 7, 2014 at 2:00p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
