I extend heartfelt and sincere condolences to the family and extended family of the late Lareene Smith- known as "Sister Smith" by a long list of physicians who passed through the Dept of paediatrics at the QEH. She was a stalwart in the newborn nursing area, and an outstanding team leader on the Team, be it in her quiet way, and got the job done. We worked together for some decades in a consultant paediatrician - nurse relationship. She made an outstanding contribution, being a vital and integral part of the health care Team in the NICU for decades and role in the Parent NICU Charity.

She undoubtably gave her best and rendered a high level of care, and commitment, competence and dedication, in her career as a specialist nurse. Exemplary service to that particular demographic, of children of Barbados. We are indebted to her for her tireless and selfless effort and vital role played impacting and influencing the life of the vulnerable and extremely fragile newborns infants of Barbados in her professional capacity, Well done, Lareeene.. Gone but not to be forgotten.

My deepest sympathy to the family and friends of the late Sister Smith.
I can never think of her other than as “Sister Smith “. We worked together in the earliest days of establishing the NICU at QEH. She brought discipline, high standards and a no-nonsense approach to all our efforts, and those who knew her well would appreciate that when her sly smile just momentarily peaked through, then a good job had been done.
Sister Smith played an integral role in saving the lives of many of our most vulnerable babies who are upstanding citizens today. She has indeed made a major contribution to our patients and their families, our hospital and our country.
