It is with great sadness that the Government of Sint Maarten received news concerning the passing of civil servant Vivian Philips on Monday, October 18. Ms. Philips served as a government security guard and receptionist at various locations for the past 32 years. Ms. Philips was very loving, always asking her colleagues about their loved ones as they passed her. Colleagues of Ms. Philips describe her as a quiet, kind hearted and helpful person who always had good stories to recount of her past years working for government.
“On behalf of the Council of Ministers, we extend our deepest condolences to the late Vivian Philips’ son Natalian Philips, family and friends. The Department of Facility Services has lost a dedicated and committed colleague whose impact will remain for years to come," stated Prime Minister Silveria Jacobs.
