“She was honest with earned wisdom, a hard-worker, promoter and supporter for the well-being of the labour movement.

“I am personally indebted to Sis. LaVerne for the guidance and wisdom she instilled in me when I took over as the President of the BEU. The BEU will miss her dearly.

“The BEU sends our heartfelt condolences to the family of Ms. LaVerne Furbert, JP, David and Vance and their wives, her grandchildren, her sister Ms. Maxine Esdaille and her numerous friends she leaves behind.”
