Clarice Duncan passed away on Tuesday, November 24, 2015. She was 74 years old.
Born in Saint Andrew, Jamaica, to Ephraim and Angelina Robinson, she attended Buxton High School. Clarice married Alvin Duncan in 1972.
Clarice moved to the United States in 1982. She had a wonderful career in the Finance industry, and she worked at prestigious companies such as Salomon Smith Barney and Morgan Stanley. She was working on the 65th floor of the second tower when the first plane hit Tower One of the World Trade Center. She was lucky enough to survive that day but was forever changed by that horrific event.
Although Clarice had a thriving career, her true love was her family. She and her husband Alvin had two wonderful sons, Alvin Jr. and Shaun Duncan. Clarice was widowed when Alvin Sr. died in October of 1982. She was a strong woman with a great sense of humor and relied on the words of her favorite song: "Jesus will fix it".
She was a great listener and loved helping people. She donated a lot of her time because she felt strongly about giving back to the community. A good cook, she loved cooking for her family and friends.
Clarice is predeceased by her husband, Alvin Sr. She will be greatly missed by her sons: Alvin Jr. and Shaun Duncan.
