Great rewards

Great rewards: Ismay McGarrell (seated third, left ) and nine of her 12 living children. Standing from left: Charles, Owen, Andrew and Anthony. Sitting from left are Pamela, Carol, Doris, Denise and Donna. According to her children, McGarrell’s parenting style involved lots of hard work and consistent discipline. A Jill of all trades she was a farmer, seamstress, confectioner, brewer and baker at different points in her life. She told Stabroek News that seeing all her children become productive, God fearing adults has been the greatest reward for her efforts. (Keno George photo)
