Tatlin Trench was born July 19 in 1922. She was the wife of Noel George Trench.

Tatlin and Noel were married for more than 60 years through which they loved and cared for each other. They extended their family as they welcomed two children into their lives - Noel and Rhaines Trench.

She had four grandchildren - Takayah, Tahriq, Rhainecia and Alicia.

She loved her children and they loved her back.

"My mother was a caring woman" Rhaines recounted.

"My mother was phenomenal."

First a teacher and then a principal, Tatlin served as an educator for more than 50 years, ensuring that the individuals who crossed her path, parted with knowledge.

Tatlin grew up in Beecher Town, St Ann and she enjoyed eating.

"I never see anyone who had an appetite like my mother," Rhaines reflected.

"When she's ready to eat you just had to look and laugh."

Tatlin was described by her family as jovial, loving and fun.

She was a dedicated individual. A friend.

Tatlin made her transition to be with God on the 14th of September and her family and friends gathered to say their final good bye on October 10.

She leaves behind a host of memories that will be treasured. She will be truly missed by all who knew her.
