Obituary for Althea Amy Bourne

Althea “Amy” Bourne was born August 19, 1945 in the parish of St. Andrew, Barbados to mother Ruby Murray and father Egbert Frederick. She was a lively, fierce and beloved matriarch.

Growing up in Barbados, Amy enjoyed playing outdoors and sometimes getting into a bit of trouble. Amy helped to care for her younger siblings and continued to be a beloved caregiver throughout her life.

In the 1970’s Amy immigrated from Barbados to the Bronx, New York. There she raised her young daughters, Deborah and Andrea, while working as a housekeeper, building supervisor, certified nursing assistant, and personal assistant. Once her daughters were adults, she briefly returned to Barbados to pursue her dream of being a restaurateur. She managed her restaurant, Chicken Sizzler, where she served traditional Bajan food and she was a beloved member of the business community.

Amy had an unending love of life, fun and family. She never believed in turning anyone away. Even when she did not have much, she welcomed everyone to her table. Amy was an excellent cook known for her many dishes. Known to her grandchildren and many others as “Nana”, she could always be counted on for a warm plate and a rousing game of dominoes.

Amy is survived by three daughters, Deborah Bourne Brooks (Leron-deceased), Andrea Bourne (Raymond), and Cecilia Bourne; husband, Tyrone Willis; three sisters, Dorcas Jones, Cynthia Frederick, and Esther Frederick (Colin); five brothers, Hazel Frederick (Sharon), Angelo Frederick, Winston Frederick (Benita), Vibert Frederick (Yvonne) and Michael Frederick; eleven grandchildren; fourteen great-grandchildren who all brought her great joy later in life and a host of nephews, nieces, cousins, other relatives and friends.
