On February 5th, 1974 the sun shined a little brighter as the union of Captain Emmett and Bernice Munroe was blessed with the arrival of a beautiful baby girl.  They named her Markell Cherr Munroe.  Mackey as she was affectionately called was full of life and brought joy to all that she came in contact with.  Mackey commenced her early education at Ridgeland Primary School and then she attended St. Augustine’s College where she excelled in Math and Business Studies.  She was always ambitious and hardworking, and as a young girl and teenager, she spent many evenings, weekends and summers working in her father’s Laundromat.  Her dream was always to attend College abroad.  After working for a few years this dream became a reality, and she enrolled in St. Augustine’s University Raleigh North Carolina, where she graduated Suma Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business.  After returning home she was successful in obtaining employment with The Royal Bank of Canada where she worked for 8 years.  She eventually continued her studies and was successful in obtaining the Certified Financial Planner Certificate, a certification offered by The Bahamas Institute of Financial Services.  She was employed by Equity Bank & Trust at the time of her passing.

Mackey was not only intelligent but a beautiful woman.  She was always fashionably dressed, no matter the occasion, earning her the nickname “Diva” from family and friends.

Her pride and joy was her son Myron, who she affectionately called ‘Peanut’.  Mackey was a loving and caring mother to her son who is excelling in school and continuing his mummy’s legacy.  Family was most important to her especially her sister Sherice (Milo) who became her caregiver.

In late October 2016 Mackey was diagnosed with Acute Leukemia.  She passed away peacefully on January 3rd, 2017 in Havana Cuba, where she had travelled along with her father to seek further medical treatment.

Her last words to her siblings and cousins were: “Thank you all for being so loving, concerned and committed.  I couldn’t have asked for a better support group.  You have all been so supportive of me getting well, you have all shown me what a real family is! I really love all of you and I would do anything in the world any of you would ask of me.  I can’t wait for us to sit, eat and talk craziness again.  Keep strong because I am feeding off all of you guys strength.  Much love, this too shall pass.  You guys have me pumped and motivated to the max I must say”.
