In Celebration of the life of Ms. Louisa Nurse

For Release Upon Receipt - Tuesday, July 30, 2013

Ms. Louisa Nurse


Louisa was the smiling face, the warm heart, and the professional spirit of our academy. Her character we all knew as a symbol of Cave Hill’s collegiality at its best. All of us who traverse the trails of the campus, and visitors who attend our functions, encountered the legendary Louisa greeting and salutation. She was a critical part of the Cave Hill brand; and indispensable element within our identity. Through her we experienced the best we could be and in her company we improved upon ourselves. No matter how down your spirit felt, Louisa knew how to extract a smile from the frown. There can be no replacing this unique soul. Her name will dwell long upon our lips, and through warm expressions of memory the lessons of her life will endure. Peace eternal.

Cave Hill campus


Louisa was a prized member of staff of the Office of Student Services, of the Campus and the university as a whole. She did everything with panache, a splash of style and a generous helping of gusto. She was passionate about the Cave Hill Campus and the Student body. One of the highlights of our working together was the excellent contribution she made to the planning and execution of the Opening Ceremony of the UWI Games which was an outstanding success. Louisa was talented and dramatic and it was always a joy to see her in action at official functions, as one of the Campus' chief ushers. We love you Louisa, we will miss you. Thank you for all you did and Rest in Peace.
