Una M. Cain

It is with a heavy heart that I am reporting the passing of Mrs. Una M. Cain, who passed away on Christmas Day last year at 91 years of age.

She was born and raised on St. Thomas, but had to relocate to Massachussetts after Hurricane Marilyn hit the islands. Many will speak of her wit, charisma and caring disposition. Una will truly be missed.

She worked for 30 years for Chase Manhattan Bank on St. Thomas.
