THE MEMORIAL REFLECTIONS\n\nI heard a voice thunder from the Throne: "Look! Look! God has moved into the neighborhood,\n\nmaking his home with men and women! They are his people; he is their God. He will wipe\n\nevery tear from their eyes. Death is gone for good - tears gone, crying gone, pain gone...\n\nRevelation 21:3 - 4 | The Message Bible\n\n \n\nSYBIL MAY STIMPSON GORDON, the only daughter of the late Charles A. Stimpson and\n\nVera Boyd, was born in Kingston, Jamaica on November 5, 1942. She attended\n\nelementary and high schools in Kingston. Being an only child, she was blessed to grow up\n\nwith her cousins. She was always ready for a game of any kind as long as they played\n\ntogether. She was known to tease, scare, bite, and pinch her cousins while they played\n\ntogether. This was SYBIL's way of getting attention and expressing her love to her family.\n\n \n\nSYBIL moved to London, England as a teenager and enrolled in a hospital nursing school.\n\nShe later transferred to another hospital in Bedfordshire County, England, where she put\n\nher training to the test. She fell in love and married an American GI - Richard Harris - and\n\nsoon, thereafter, they had a beautiful daughter, Helen May Harris. She was affectionately called\n\n"Joy-Joy" because she was a real joy to be with. The family later moved to Plainville,\n\nConnecticut to be closer to SYBIL's father, Charles. On June 10, 1971, she received the\n\nCertificate of Naturalization from Hartford County, New Britain CT.\n\n \n\nSYBIL retired as a nurse and settled with her daughter and family in Cameron NC. She\n\nspent her days celebrating life with neighbors and friends at the Senior Center, Spring Lake\n\nHer sweet spirit and kind demeanor blessed everyone who met her. She never forgot\n\nthe families' birthdays. This was evident because she would send a birthday card with an\n\nenclosed gift. Regardless of where her extended family resided, she would always call her\n\nfather, uncle, and aunts, sometimes twice a day, especially as they grew older. SYBIL loved\n\nboth her immediate family - Helen, Jasper and Brandon - as well as her extended family.\n\nSuch love, affection, and dedication to family, is a credit to her memory and she will be\n\nsadly missed.\n\n \n\nSYBIL was preceded in death by her father, Charles A. Stimpson, and her daughter, Helen\n\nMay Harris Tymes (her "Joy-Joy").\n\nOn Wednesday night, September 2, 2020, SYBIL peacefully and triumphantly began her\n\neternal life with Jesus Christ with her son-in-love by her bedside.\n\nThe blessed life and rich legacy of our beloved SYBIL will be etched in the hearts of her\n\nson-in-love: Minister Jasper Tymes; her grandson: Brandon Christopher Tymes (Jeanetta\n\nRobinson); her great-grandson: Jeremiah Anthony Tymes, all of Cameron NC; her mother:\n\nVera Shepherd of London, England; her cousins: Monica Reid and family of London,\n\nEngland; Antoinette Needham and family; Marion Dickerson and family; Lawrence, Everton\n\nand Joan Butler and family all of Florida; Ludlow Brown, Sharon Brown and Valerie\n\nStimpson of Kingston, Jamaica; Arnoldo Stimpson of New York; and other relatives and\n\nfriends.
