Issbel Douglas

At 80 years of age, Issbel Douglas, fondly known as “Miss Felley”, passed away peacefully at the Florida Hospital, on January 13, 2020, surrounded by loving family members. Issbel was born July 14, 1939 to the late Rundolph and Elouis Vaughn.

Born in the village of Albouystown in Georgetown, Guyana, South America, Issbel was the first of 3 children, all girls. She attended the Freebug School in the area where she grew up, and married the late Clifton Oneal Douglas on July 27, 1957. This union produced 8 children, 11 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.

Issbel was a dedicated housewife, and a source of aid and comfort to many in her neighbourhood. Her endless generosity and love for people influenced the positive role she played in the lives of those less fortunate than herself. Many came to consider her as family, and never did she turn away anyone that sought her help or guidance. Issbel was equally, if not more well-known for her amazing cooking skills, and “white pudding, cassava ball and souse at Felley’s house” was a sacred Saturday tradition for many. Using just salt and fresh seasonings from Bourda Market, she could turn just about anything into a warm and satisfying meal, a skill that she used to provide for her family and countless others.

In 1979, Issbel was introduced to Jehovah, and in August 1981, she dedicated her life to Him, continually seeking his knowledge and living faithfully until her end. Throughout the rest of her life, she taught her children Bible truths and encouraged them to live by it’s principles as she did. She was a lover of Jehovah and of the truth and she strived in all things to make the truth her own. It became an integral part of her everyday life and she never missed an opportunity to preach to someone, be it a friend, family or strangers.

In May of 2005, Issbel migrated to the USA and continued sharing Bible truths about what Jehovah’s Kingdom would do for mankind soon. In October 2005, she moved to Orlando. Even after being confined to a home in September of 2018, Issbel found a silver lining in her confinement, making the home her territory, and joyfully preaching the word. She preached to everyone who attended to her there, and embraced the hope of a resurrection after her death, which is described in the Bible at John 5:28

Issbel always had a smile on her face, and was a very loving, caring and understanding woman. She always had a bit of wisdom to share, and her strength served as an example and an inspiration to all of her children. She was beloved by her grandchildren, most of whom had the opportunity to live with her during their younger years. She died holding fast to the hope of a resurrection and the hope of life on a paradise earth, and we also treasure the hope that we will see her once again. Until then, we love you mom, and we’ll miss you dearly.

    My dear mother. It’s a constant battle to accept you are not there. Daily the tears still flow. Guilt of not being there when you needed me most, life cannot be normal again. I am holding on to the day when I can say I love you again.

    Felley was one of my dearest friends. I will never forget her. Her way of life was a reflection of her deep love for Jehovah God and the wisdom she gained from knowing him. Loved her like a mother. She made the best dhal puri! She will be missed until Jehovah wakes her.
