Adele Sedney Austen
Born on 17 March 1917, in Paramaribo, Dutch Guyana (city gyal)
She had 8 siblings and married her man in 1943 (TBC).
I knew her as kind, a sweetheart, a real schatje. She was devout, HILARIOUS, fun loving, patient, fed her family like it was a religion, disciplined, liked her routines, traveled quite far for her era and into her 90s, I wish I had more of her dance moves….I don’t remember her ever raising her voice! in a house full of 9 independent people my aunts and uncles: Flory (RIP), Carmen, Latetcia, Yvonne, Humphrey (RIP), Stanley, Ewald, Helen, Mikael, and a strong-willed husband that can’t have been easy…
I imagine her riding her bike with her nicely ironed, tailored dress, hair tidy, straight into the gates of heaven (no questions asked) where her husband Pete and children Flory and Humphrey welcome her, Pete apparently would have joked « what took you so long ??». She would have packed a full picnic maybe some broodjes some bakkalao and cheese, both with butter.
RIP Ma, my switi switi Oma.
