Honourable Prime Minister Sarah Wescot Williams issued a statement on Friday evening with respect to the passing of Eulalie Meyers.
Prime Minister’s Statement
On behalf of the Council of Ministers and myself, I wish to extend heartfelt sympathy to member of the Council, Minister Franklin Meyers and his family on the passing of his mother, Mrs. Eulalie Meyers.
Condolences at this time of great bereavement also go out to Mr. Meyers, husband of the late "Ms. Lalie", the extended Meyers and Hazel families and the entire community of St. Maarten, that has lost a pioneer and fighter for women rights, a stalwart of the Methodist Church and one of the greatest social activists our country has known.
On a personal note, I have had the privilege to have known Ms. Lalie closely for many, many years, have worked with her in different capacities and always admired her zeal for life and genuine care for her fellow human beings.
I pray that the Almighty will comfort the family in this time of great loss and I hope that our community will find strength and unity in the memories we share of Ms. Lalie in the numerous capacities in which she served her nation.
May her life serve as an example for us and for generations to come.
