Jerusha Graham Obituary

Miss Jerusha Adassa Graham, otherwise called Miss J Will, grew up in the cool hills of Garden Hills, St Catherine, Jamaica with her paternal grandmother. After her grandmother's death she migrated to Kingston and became a seamstress, then she worked as a clerk, selling fabrics by commission and she started a business where she operated a lounge/bar in Kingston
selling beverages and providing safe space for relaxation and leisure. Miss Will put her hands at various businesses successfully
until she migrated to the USA where she worked in the hospitality industry as a care provider. Miss Will was pleasant, Loving, Caring, understanding and very generous and these qualities extended to relatives, friends and strangers, Leftovers were always there for unexpected visitorsas her Potato pudding, stew peas and rice among others were
always finger licking. She took an active part in the upbringingof her Nieces and Nephews, cousins neighbors and friends providing uniform, lunch monies, shoes, bags, school material  also providing for graduation, weddings among others. Her kindness had no boundary! As her Grandmother taught her lifeskills and how to improvise with very little. When Miss Will migrated to the USA the barrels sailed to Jamaica constantly and so did the monies, for all major holidays and personal events. she was an avid saver, with very little she did a lot! until severe illness prevented her from working. Miss Will to others and Mummy to me was always a tower of strength! Remembering her is easy, missing her is a heartbreak that will be unending.

Miss Will fought a long battle and I am glad I was there to Hshepherd her along the way. As I remember her favourite words " The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want", "One day at a time sweet Jesus, that's all I'm asking of you" Miss Will, Mummy you will surely be rewarded, you loved, you gave freely, you served: May light perpetual shine on you and thank you!
