Violet Isabel Prince was born to Nathaniel and Edith McKie Prince of Chapmans Village, St. Vincent, West Indies on September 9, 1910: the second of four children born to the couple. She was educated at New Grounds Elementary School in Chapmans and at Girlsâ High School in Kingstown. At an early age, she accepted the Lord Jesus as her Saviour and enjoyed fellowship with the saints at the Grace and Truth Hall in Chapmans Village.
She married the widowed Ewart Montgomery Daisley on August 14, 1940 and became step-mother to his two daughters, Joyce and Shirley (both deceased). After marriage she relocated to Kingstown where she faithfully attended the meetings, supporting all assembly activities and was a wonderful testimony to her faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Subsequently, nine children were born to this union. She instilled a love for and fear of the Lord in her children and regularly reminded them whenever she left the home,”Thou God seest me.â Additionally, mom and dadâs home was governed by the verse of scripture “As for me and my house we will serve the Lord.”
She regularly visited the sick in the hospitals and in their homes; handing out tracts to those she met along the way.
Local saints and visiting brethren were entertained by the household and enjoyed the lovely meals Mom prepared and served. During school days meals were also served to extended family members. In addition to caring for her nine children and others, she was also an excellent seamstress.
Mom was an active camp staff member at Grace and Truth Bible Camp in Layou where she sought to instill her love for the Lord in the young women to whom she ministered as a camp counselor. She also helped in overseeing food preparation for camp activities.
Mom migrated to New York in 1968 and with the help of her sister, Agnes Deane Sixto (deceased), was able to bring her children into the country. She then returned to St. Vincent where she continued to live with her husband. After his home-call in January, 1978, she was content to live alone in the family home. Mom returned to New York in October, 2005 to live with her daughters Ruth and Keren in Amityville.
In July of 2006 Mom became ill. Her illness did not deter her as she continued in all her daily activities, including regularly attending the meetings of the assembly. She attended until it was physically impossible for her to do so. On the evening of June 10, 2007 the Lord saw fit to relieve her of her suffering and take her home.
She was predeceased by her grandson, Rawle, Jr. (Jay Jay) in 1998.
