Joan E Whittaker
- Early Life
Joan E Whittaker was born in Alderton Jamaica West Indies; a small rural town of not more than two thousand people. Joan’s earliest recollection of herself was at about age three when her birth mother placed a small spoon of medicine in her mouth when she was sick. It is common knowledge in the family that she was so sick that she died and after her death was announced to the community she miraculously woke up from that state.
At age four her mother died dramatically while giving birth to her tenth child. Joan was the last of the nine children remaining. Joan remembers her mother’s funeral like it was yesterday. She shared in her book entitled the Journey how thousands of people gathered from the surrounding communities to participate in the grieving process of her mother’s untimely death. Joan’s mother Ivy’s last words and prayer to God was for her baby girls to grow up and become great spiritual leaders.
