Join Us As We Celebrate the Life of Euline Hackett
Euline Hackett was born in Trinidad to Carmen Charles and Daniel Charles on February 2nd, 1947. She was the youngest of five and the last to gain her wings. During her time on earth she mothered three children, Shelford, Cherryl and Theophelus. She was adored by her eleven grandchildren, many great grandchildren and a host of cousins, nieces and nephews. In her late 40s she migrated to the United States to pursue her passion for nursing and got her start at the VA hospital of New York. After caring for veterans for several years she went on to work for Silver Lining Nursing agency where she gained the love and trust of her patients, coworkers and employers.
Euline was a beautiful woman, a woman of faith. Every Sunday you would find her up early playing her hymns, singing along while she got dressed in her Sunday best for service. It didn't matter which country she was in, 'Sister Hackett' would be seen in the front pew praising God. Her home and phone line was always open to offer a word of encouragment or advice or a stern word or two if needed. She always had a scripture and a prayer to help uplift, guide and protect those who called on her. She was a pillar in her community and as the last of her siblings, the matriach. Many called her 'Mother', as she reached out and touched many lives, from stranger to friend, to spiritual children.
Following her retirement Euline went back to her country and continued to work on her dream and follow God's calling. She remained a caregiver and achieved a goal by opening a nursing home where she can oversee the care and the proper running of a facility designed to treat, house and properly care for the elderly. This was her passion and it will be passed on to her children and grandchildren who will continue her legacy.Read More
