Tensie was the first daughter of Felmina Camaguey Finn and Earl Brown who were of the first generation of economic migrants who left the Caribbean to build new lives in England. Tensie’s leaves behind three siblings and three children.
Tensie was born in the early hours of a Monday morning and passed away in the early hours of Saturday morning. She passed in her sleep of hypertensive heart disease. It was not known to any of her family or friends that she had this condition.
For the last two decades, Tensie was the proud mother of three girls (two are now adults). Her life revolved around them and she wanted nothing more than to build a world for them which would enable them to be happy and maximise all of their unique talents. To achieve that end, she spent over 20 years as a suppport worker with a well respected charity in East London facilitating activites to promote the independent living of people who were unable to live by themselves. Prior to that, she was a sales assistant for premium skincare and perfumery counters on a range of beauty counters in the west end. She also worked on a stall in Camden market.
She was born, raised, married and lived her whole life in Hackney. in the 1970’s and 1980’s, she attended Amhurst Primary School and Dalston Mount School. Tensie was woman of very strong personal faith and was an active member of The Risen Christ Church of All Souls in Clapton and served as its Safeguarding Champion – a role well suited to her character.
