Obituary for Fitzlyn Hodges

Fitzlyn Ruth Hodges was born September 9, 1935 in St George’s, Grenada. She was the daughter of the late Agnes Haynes and the sister of Elmeta (Nesta) Haynes, Humilta Haynes, Minerva Haynes, and Elrick Haynes - all preceding her in death; one surviving sister - Roslyn Morris. Fitzlyn departed this life May 30, 2020.

At the age of twenty two, she moved to Curaçao for work and soon after moved to Montreal, Canada. In 1968 she finally settled in Boston, Massachusetts as she continued her education establishing a career in Human Services. Her career blossomed as she serviced people with developmental disabilities at the Walter E. Fernald State School. She also sponsored her sisters Nesta, Humilta, and Roslyn giving them a better opportunity here in the United States.

As a devoted mother, raising two children - Sean Hodges and Monique Hodges, she filled their lives with its truths, trust, forgiveness, love, and belief in God. Her heart was shared with everyone she met. Her hands gifted many as was evident in her love of cooking. Feeding people was a natural at home as her specialties were freshly baked breads and delicious cakes. Having a piece of her warm bread was as special as her touching you with her warm hands. You felt the love! Her vivacious personality was welcome medicine to all. Her hobbies included listening to music, singing and watching classic movies.

Another star shines brightly from heaven as she will be dearly missed.

She leaves to mourn her loss son - Sean Hodges; daughter - Monique Hodges; grandchildren - Jahgah Hodges, Aahron Jones, Ashley Simmons; sister - Roslyn Morris; two nieces - Glenna Thomas, Arlene Morris; nephew - Collins Thomas; as well as a host of cousins and friends.
