Our family regretfully announces the passing of Mrs. Daphne V. Richardson, age 75, on Feb. 13, 2023, at the Schneider Regional Medical Center. Mrs. Richardson was born on Aug. 9, 1947, to Alma and Albert McDowell. She was preceded in death by her two sisters, Ketura Bobb and Renneth Joseph. She leaves behind her husband, Raphael “Raphie” Dulfetto Richardson; son, Edmond Green; sisters, Marie Esprit and Corinthia McDowell; brothers, Arthur McDowell and Cornelius Jacobs; many nephews & nieces; The Bramble Family and countless extended family and friends to honor her legacy.
Mrs. Richardson immigrated to St. Thomas in 1969 where she met her beloved Raphie in 1970 and within one year they were happily married. She worked as a skilled beautician at Berecia’s Hair Fashion in Savan, later at A & F Bakery, and lastly at Gottlieb’s Quickway until retirement. She was known for her love for plants. She especially loved Julie mangoes. She was kindhearted to friends, strangers and always ready to give a helping hand. Her zest for life was felt by her spirit of celebration. She loved to entertain friends and family. She was an amazing cook. We have her memories to keep in our hearts as she rests in eternal peace.
