Special Info  Mavis Morris, “Aunt Mavis”, “Nana” was born on October 8, 1940; the fourth of five siblings. She was educated in Barbados and eventually moved to England to continue her education in Nursing. In 1969, Mavis moved to the United States in pursuit of better employment opportunities and because it allowed her easier access to her family still in Barbados.
