Evelyn Cornwall Martin

Evelyn Cornwall Martin passed peacefully with family at her side on March 8, 2024, in Miramar, Florida where she found solace in the home of her son Wayne.

Evelyn was born on March 27, 1921, on Union Island, an island in the Grenadines archipelago, to Nell Decoto Cornwall and George Cornwall.

In 1968, Evelyn migrated to the United States of America, first living in Brooklyn, New York and then moving to Orlando Florida in 1972.
