EUNICE CANTON SPRAUVE, 90

Nov. 10, 2003 – Retired educator Eunice Canton Sprauve died Nov. 6 at Roy L. Schneider Hospital. She was 90.
"She was an excellent teacher who brought out the best in her students with her firm but compassionate way of promoting the basics of reading, writing and arithmetic, coupled with character building," said Gov. Charles Turnbull in a release.
The governor called Sprauve, a Savan resident, a cultural bearer who passed on her love for the island's traditional heritage.
"Her legacy is well established in the annals of the Virgin Islands educational system as a teacher of note who made a positive difference in the lives of many young people," Turnbull said.
Sen. Shawn Michael Malone said Sprauve left an outstanding legacy. He said she was a pioneer in special education and served on the Board of Elections.
She was born July 29, 1913, in what was then St. Thomas, Danish West Indies.
Sprauve is survived by her sons, Gaylord A., Gilbert A. and Guilderoy A. Sprauve Sr.; a stepdaughter, Genevieve Hicks; a brother, David A. Canton; daughters-in-law Candace Sprauve, Jacqueline Sprauve and Eugenia Sprauve; sisters-in-law Betty Canton and Eldra Canton; and nine nieces, seven nephews, 18 grandchildren, nine step-grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren and numerous friends.
A viewing will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday at John Thomas Memorial Funeral Chapel and Cremation Services. The funeral will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday at Nisky Moravian Church. Interment will follow at the Moravian Cemetery in Charlotte Amalie.
