Daisy Iradell Gittens-Lynch, 95, of Port Charlotte, Florida passed away peacefully at the home on Wednesday, January 10, 2024.
Daisy born on February 28, 1928 to loving and caring parents Mabel and Sinclair Payne in Barbados, West Indies. Daisy is the mother of 7 children. Daisy migrated to Boston, Massachusetts before relocating to Port Charlotte, Florida with her late husband Lionel Lynch. She worked at Youville Hospital in Cambridge, Massachusetts and at Massachusetts General Hospital where she worked as a Unit Coordinator until retirement.
Daisy also known as “Miss Daisy” to many, lived for the Lord and became a member of the Holy Spirit Church in Mattapan, Massachusetts, while living in Boston. While in Florida, she became a faithful member of St. James Episcopal Church, where she joyfully served the Lord with all her heart and soul. She enjoyed baking and volunteering for church events. Miss Daisy had a deep love and commitment to God and her family. She enjoyed listening to Joseph Niles and the Consolers music. This bought her great comfort.
Miss Daisy was known as a “Plain Speaker” to everyone and saying what’s on her mind. She was a dignified, proud woman, who was known for her exquisite way of dressing. Miss Daisy carried herself with such grace and was the epitome of class. She loved traveling and enjoyed the finer things in life. She often said, “If I don’t treat myself good, who will”.
Miss Daisy leaves no mourners but leaves cherished memories for her family who has accepted God’s will to bring his faithful servant home. She leaves behind her children: Winston Gittens, Barbados, Margaret Gittens-Newton, Yvonne Niles, Kenrick Grosvenor, Michael Gittens (all of Boston, Massachusetts); Henderson Forde, Barbados and Angela Burnett (Port Charlotte, FL). Fourteen grandchildren, twenty-four great grandchildren; ten great-great-grandchildren, and one sister Ira Payne of New Jersey, and a host of other relatives and friends including Edrich Burke, Dolores Ifill, Esmeina Ricketts and Cynthia Jones.
For all those who knew Miss Daisy she was a gentle and kind lady and may she rest until we meet again.
