Obituary

Clotilde Dear, 82, a longtime resident of the Boston area passed away on Friday January 6, 2019 at her home in Dorchester, MA. Born on February 19, 1936 in St James Barbados to Elsie Knight Watson and Felix Watson Clotilde was the youngest of four siblings.

She attended Paynes Bay school for girls and sewed and sold clothing on Broad Street, St. Michael. She immigrated to the United States in 1970 and worked in the dietary department at Children’s Hospital and Deaconess Hospital for over 20 years. Clotilde grew up in a Christian household and attended Saint John the Baptist Church in Holders Hill, Barbados and later was a member of All Saints Church in Dorchester where she participated in the prayer group. After relocating to the US she became a part of a close knit community of West Indians where she fit right in; she was known for planning memorable trips and hosted many parties at her home.

Clotilde was outgoing and had a larger than life personality; she loved to dance and was as fashionable as they come. She had a great sense of humor and could often be found telling jokes and putting a smile on someone’s face. She lived her life to the fullest and loved to travel to her home in sunny Barbados where she spent months at a time taking care of her aging mother.

Clotilde is survived by her two sons Hugh Dear (Simone) and Anthony Dear, her oldest brother Norman R. Knight, two grandchildren Anthony James Howard and Imani Nia Dear, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends who became family.

A Viewing will be held on Friday, January 11, 2019 from 3:00 to 4:00pm followed by Funeral Service at 4:00 O’clock at The Parish of All Saints 209 Ashmont Street Dorchester, MA 02121

Final Disposition: St. Michael Crematory

Please accept my sincere condolences. Death is never an easy thing to deal with. I have to reflect on Jesus response when he learned that Lazarus his friend had died. At John 11:33,35 We read that Jesus was troubled and that he wept. Some say we must be strong, but can you think of anyone stronger than Jesus? Just think, Jesus has the power to resurrect and he wept over this death. In the very near future Jesus will excercise this same power to resurrect our dear loved ones. John 5:28,29. May you find comfort in the hope of the resurrection. Denise L.

The passing of a dear loved one is a difficult experience for family members. Sorry for your loss. It is through the privilege of prayer that a bereaved family can experience God's love and comfort in the most intimate way. May the family find comfort through prayerful reliance on Jehovah, the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. He is the hearer of prayer and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials. 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4; Psalms 65:2.
