Jackson Terrace “Red Brick,” died on Thursday, Jan. 15, at the Harlem Hospital in New York City. Mildred was born in Christiansted, St. Croix, to Florence Foster and Joseph Williams. She spent most of her life residing on St. Croix before she relocated to New York to be with family. She worked at Pueblo Supermarket, Bata Shoe Store and Woolworth’s convenience store.

Brooks; and great-grandchildren: N’fari Benjamin and Tajarie O McIntosh.
She is also survived by nieces: Diane Buntin-Edwards, Deborah Buntin, Pamela Nancy, Stacey and Twana Rose, Cheryl Sealey-Smith, Claudette “Susie” Christian-Richards, Amber Lindquist, Kisha, Raquel and Ravon Christian, Sheneak and Rema Christian, Diane Christian-Thomas and Devin Knights; nephews: Melvin Buntin, Anthony and Derrick Sewer, Ernest Rose Jr., Cyril, Augustine, Eddie, Roberto, Roan and Akkido Lindquist, Fero and Itiba Christian; special friends: Brenda and Jacklyn Charles, Rehina Monsanto, Sandra Sage, Agnes Garnett, Elizabeth and Bernadette; as well as other relatives and friends too numerous to mention.
