Obituary of Eyvonne Wisdom Rose

Eyvonne Wisdom was born on August 15th, 1948 to the parents of Solomon William Wisdom and Louise Agatha Wisdom in the district of Stephney, the Parish of St Ann, Jamaica, West Indies. She attended school in the Lime Hall District. As a very smart child, Eyvonne could always be found reading everything that came into the house and completed her education early, at the age of 15. After completing her schooling, Eyvonne moved to Kingston, Jamaica where she passed the postal exam and proudly worked at the post office for 11 years. Later, she met and later married Lloyd Rose. They migrated to the United States of America in 1978 with both their children Karlene Ann Marie Nelson and Racquel Rose Marie Rose. The migration could have only happened with the help of her beloved parents and the help of her dear oldest sister, Gloria Wisdom. Eyvonne and her family settled in Boston, Massachusetts. Always ambitious and ahead of her time, Eyvonne studied computers and began working in the banking field at the Bank of Boston. She also had an interest in healthcare and ventured into that field. During this time, she had Judy Eyvonne Rose, her last child, and the first child to be born in America. She continued her career in healthcare and utilized her training to work as a Nursing Assistant at the Recuperative Center. Unfortunately, she lost her hearing, which affected her ability to pursue a career as a Registered Nurse and her hearing impairment resulted in early retirement. Thankfully, her children continued Eyvonne’s legacy and became graduates of registered nursing schools. Despite any setbacks Eyvonne experienced in her life, she was a woman of God. Eyvonne became a born-again Christian, baptized and filled with the Holy Ghost, evidenced by her speaking in tongues, shortly after giving her life to the Lord. She spent her days and nights as the metaphorical deer that panteth for the water, as her soul longeth after Christ, that is spoken of in Psalms 42. She would always encourage others to seek the presence of God and meditate on God’s word day and night. This woman of God had a prophetic gift of dreams, visions and prophecy. She would often share her prophetic dreams and visions with her loved ones. The truth of God would always come to pass and everyone that was a witness to her gifts from God were inspired by her relationship with God and people came to her for Godly counsel and prayers. Eyvonne encouraged people to have their own personal relationship and closer walk with God. She taught people that when you enter into the secret place of the Most High God and spend quality time in God’s Word, God will reveal mysteries from Heaven. She had several favorite scriptures. They were Ephesians 6:10-20, Psalms 121 (“I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills…”), Psalms 91, (Enter into the secret place of the Most High God”) Psalms 18 (“I will love thee O lord...”) and Psalms 100. That taught her to (“enter into God’s gates with thanksgiving and into the Lord’s courts with praise, be thankful unto Him and bless His name”)She was a woman of God after God’s own heart, who embodied peace, love, patience, resilience, and all the 9 fruits of the spirit. She left a legacy of prayer, intercession, fasting lifestyle, and taught us by example to commit our ways to God. The word of God was her food like the biblical daily manna from heaven. She loved God and was loved by all who knew her. Not only was Eyvonne a faithful servant of the Lord, but she was a biblical scholar as well, attending the Bethel Bible Institute to become a minister. Her experience in seminary taught her that the Holy Spirit is the ultimate teacher. Moreover, the miracles in her life proved to be God’s living word that she studied at the Bethel Bible Institute. Eyvonne survived three strokes without having any adverse effects and was healed from type 2 diabetes. And as freely as she received from God’s mighty hand, Eyvonne also blessed others by praying for them. The people she prayed for left her presence experiencing the power, joy, and glory of God. Eyvonne was known for her love of laughter, great sense of humor, her pride in her appearance, and most importantly, her love for her family and God. She had a zest for life, captivating everyone in her presence with her beauty, intelligence, grace, and sophistication. She was nicknamed “Hollywood” in Jamaica because of how fashionable she always looked, whether she was going to a market or going to an elegant function. She was always a very independent and hard-working woman because she enjoyed having the finer things in life and having the ability to help other people with her generous and kind heart. She loved walks in nature, cooking, studying scripture and history, spending time with family and friends, and interior decorating. Eyvonne was a dedicated family woman. As a daughter, she made an effort to please, honor, and respect her parents. She was her siblings’ confidante, offering them reassurance, wisdom, and love. As a mother to daughters, she was supportive and encouraging, stressing the importance of putting God first and foremost. Always referencing the scripture taken from (“Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all other things shall be added unto you and (“what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his or her soul in”). She also stressed the importance of being independent, valuing education, and being compassionate to others. The love she expressed to her grandchildren was that of a mother and the bond that they all shared with her was immeasurable. She was affectionately referred to as “Nana” for being very relatable, youthful and loving. Eyvonne is survived by her daughter Karlene Nelson Edwards, Karlene’s husband Robert Edwards, her daughter Racquel Rose, and her daughter Judy Rose. She is also survived by her sisters Hyacinth Wisdom, Winifred Wisdom, Imogene Wisdom, and her brother Manley Wisdom, her five grandchildren Breanne Nelson, Joshua Duncan, Jasmine Rose, Jonando Rose, and Dellon Giles, as well several nieces, nephews, and other family and friends. Eyvonne is greatly missed by her family and friends. The memories that we share with her are timeless and will live on forever. - Lovingly submitted by the family
