Doris lovingly known as Elsie, Ms. Else, Aunt Elsie and finally Tashie (a name given to her loving by her eldest grandson Stuart Ebanks.)
Doris was born on August 10, 1928, in Cuba to Hubert Ruddock and Caroline Haughton. On June 4th, 1955 she married her love Gladson Malcolm Black in a small ceremony in Jamaica W.I. This year they celebrated 66 years of marriage. Their union resulted in two children Paul Black and Pauline (Black) Ebanks. Doris migrated to America in 1957 and Gladson traveled shortly thereafter. Their home on Saint John’s Place in Brooklyn, New York (39 years) was like Ellis Island to an endless number of family and friends who wanted to migrate to the United States. She encouraged family and friends alike to take advantage of the opportunities life in the states offered. Her sense of adventure and passion for exploring, led her and family on many fun escapades.
She many spent many years as a companion and caretaker for the elderly. So many people relied on her kind and caring nature for solace and advice. She is now reunited with her loving grandson Brandon Michael Ebanks (2019) and will be forever missed by her children Paul (Ginette) Black, Pauline Ebanks, grandchildren, Stuart and Saudia Ebanks. Her great-grandchildren (Stuart) Genesis and Kenneth, (Brandon) Brandon Jr, William, Andrew, and Wes, (Saudia) Amaya Ebanks.
