Frances Elizabeth (Betty) Sheppard nee St. Hill

In 1942, a young army Trinidadian lieutenant on holiday in Barbados attended a rehearsal at the YMPC (Collymore Rock) for a variety show to be performed at the Empire Theatre.  His eyes caught an attractive 17 year old with shapely legs practicing her tap dance routine . . . love at first sight. It was wartime.  After a short courtship through letters, Andrew Sheppard & Betty St. Hill married at St. Patrick‚Äôs Cathedral (1943), later producing 7 children.
