‘Lavender Lady’ laid to rest


Share post:

A SEA OF lilac rippled through the sanctuary of the Abundant Life Assembly on Bank Hall this morning characterising the likes and life of Carol Anne Brancker. 

The late director of Brancker’s on Fontabelle, known to work associates and colleagues in horticultural circles as the “Lavender Lady”, passed away at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital just over a week ago, after a brief illness. 

This morning she was eulogised by her brother Adrian, before a packed church that included representatives of the Barbados Association of Flower Arrangers, members of the Hope Family Church where she worshipped and several business associates of her father, businessman and former member of the West Indies Cricket Team, Rawle Brancker.
