Obituary for Edna M. Dubois

On November 5, 1943 in Portland, Jamaica a beautiful baby girl was born to Albertine Gregory and Duval McKay Crooks. Edna was one of twelve children. She is predeceased by brothers Noel McKay (England), Roy (Jamaica), Rubeson (USA) and sister Norma (USA). She leaves behind sisters Madge (USA), Barbara aka Claire (USA), Verna (USA), Rena (USA), Peggy (Canada) and brothers, Ivan (USA) and Errol (Jamaica). Edna was an intelligent, articulate, curious and smart young girl. With the help of her aunt Alicia Addison and her husband Peter, she began her early education at Grange Hill Primary. With further help from her cousin Gloria Williams and her husband Noel she pursued her secondary education at Manning’s High School (Jamaica). Edna was successful in her studies and quickly found employment at Hanover Agency as a clerk. Soon a life changing opportunity would present itself and Edna was sent to England to study nursing. She then studied midwifery in Scotland and worked as a nurse in Germany. After some time Edna migrated to the USA and worked at Rochester General Hospital. She was later employed by Methodist Hospital where she worked as the director of nursing until her retirement. Her marriage to Gregory John Dubois produced one child, Andre Michael Dubois. Andre gifted his parents with two beautiful granddaughters. Edna retired and relocated to Norcross, Georgia where she reconnected with some of her childhood friends. Edna touched many lives with her sense of humor, kindness and humility. She leaves to mourn her loss her brothers, sisters, several nieces and nephews, many cousins and numerous friends. Her life was a life well lived until she left us unexpectedly on Sunday, September 29, 2019. It’s not goodbye it’s see you later. Online condolences may be expressed at www.crowellbrothers.com. Arrangements entrusted to Crowell Brothers Funeral Homes & Crematory, 5051 Peachtree Industrial Boulevard, Peachtree Corners, GA, 30092.
