It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our dearly treasured Gemma Alvarez. Gemma, whose radiant spirit touched the lives of all who knew her, has left an indelible mark on our hearts. While we mourn her loss, we find solace in the cherished memories of her beautiful existence.
Gemma was born to Celita Joseph and Emmanuel Mitchell, both of whom have preceded her in death. As a daughter, she brought immense joy and pride to her parents. Gemma’s love and respect for her family were boundless, and she treasured the time spent with her loved ones.
A loving and devoted mother, Gemma leaves behind her children Vanessa, Petula, and Kerry. She poured her heart and soul into raising them, instilling in them the values of love, perseverance, and resilience. Gemma’s children were her pride and joy, and she celebrated their every achievement with unyielding support and unwavering love.
Gemma’s legacy extends to her role as a grandmother to Melissa, Miguel, Marcus, Mercedes, Marco, Kadeem, and Naima. She embraced this role with warmth and tenderness, creating lasting memories and a bond that will transcend time. Gemma’s grandchildren brought immeasurable happiness into her life, and she adored each and every one of them.
In addition to her immediate family, Gemma leaves behind her sister Maria, brother Robert Mitchell, and an extended family of nieces, nephews, and cousins from South. She shared special connections with her relatives, and their bonds were a testament to the strength of family ties.
Gemma’s circle of friends was a reflection of her magnetic personality. Catherine, Rosie, Glenda, Theresa, Jones, and many others were privileged to have shared countless joyful moments with Gemma. Their friendship brought light into her life, and their support and camaraderie were a source of comfort.
Gemma’s family extends their gratitude to the Benjamins, Mitchells, De Gazons, Alvarezes, Cumberbatches, Timothys, Therouldes, Ramersars, Birjahs, and Gunnesses, along with all relatives and friends who provided support and love during this difficult time.
