Announcement/Obituary: On the 8th of February 1931 in the Settlement of Mangrove Cay, Andros a baby girl was born to Estella and Jeremiah Strachan. She was the eldest girl and the 2nd child in a family of ten children. Princess progressed rapidly as a leader and care giver to her sibling. As a Teenager she met the love of her life Ronald Burrows and they were wed several years later. She soon migrated to central Andros along with her husband and there they started a family. Two children resulted from this union, Leslie and Lindamae Burrows. In pursuit of a work and a better way of life, she eventually moved from Staniard Creek to San Andros where she worked as a house keeper and a farm hand along with the famous Mr. Parker and Bobby Hayes. She ended her career working as a gardner at the Andros Beach Hotel and Villas and went on to run her own small farming business. Like her farming, she took her Church and Lodge seriously devoting her time and efforts to their development. On August 1st she became ill and was brought to Nassau from Mastic Point Andros for treatment of dehydration and anemia. Princess appeared to have made great progress and on Sunday the 3rd of August she was sitting in her hospital bed drinking coconut water, even asking for coffee and chocolate. It was quite a surprise when on Monday 4th August 2014 that she took a sudden turn for the worst. Sixty-seven years ago Princess Burrows set foot in North Andros and never left. She will be remembered for her smile, willingness to help anyone and her no nonsense approach to life. Even in death she made a statement. Princess managed to turn a simple 4th of August celebration into a true Emancipation Day, not from Slavery but from her earthly Tabernacle.
