The following statement was issued by the PLP on her passing:
From The Leader of The Opposition
On The Passing of Lady Maynard
For Immediate Release
10th December 2018
I am deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Lady Maynard this morning.
The wife of former Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Tourism, Sir Clement T. Maynard, Lady Maynard was a true matriarch of the Maynard family, a pillar of strength and the wind beneath Sir Clement’s wings as he worked tirelessly in public life on behalf of the nation.
A supporter of the progressive movement, the party thanks her for her selflessness in her support role in sharing Sir Clem with us, appreciative of the inherent associated challenges and the toll public life places on family life.
In her own right, she was a freedom fighter, particularly for women’s rights and in the arts. She followed in the footsteps of her own dear mother Meta Davis Cumberbatch as a patron and supporter of the arts and artists.
Lady Maynard has been faithful; she ran a good race and has gone on to receive her just and eternal reward.
On behalf of my parliamentary colleagues, Stalwart Councillors, officers, members and supporters of the Progressive Liberal Party and the progressive cause, I extend heartfelt condolences to the Maynard family, especially former parliamentarian Allyson Maynard-Gibson QC, Dr. Peter D. Maynard, David M. T. Maynard and Clement T. Maynard III on her passing.
May her soul rest in peace.
