Guyana Mourns the Death of Minister Desery Fox

The Junior Minister of Education, The Honorable Dr. Desery Fox died this morning as a result of injuries suffered from an accident earlier in the week. She was a distinguished scholar having been awarded a Ph.D in Linguistics from Rice University. She was also the holder of a MA in Linguistics from Rice University, a MA in Environmental Anthropology from the University of Kent at Canterbury and a B.Sc in Sociology from the University of Guyana. Our condolences to the family of the late Minister at this time of their grief.


  1. Indeed Guyana has lost a remarkable individual, who has contributed a great deal for the period she was minister to the Ministry of Education. Her gracefulness and hard work will always be remembered. Our sympathies to her relatives and friends.

  2. A very accomplished woman, yet she was so humble. May she Rest in Peace.

    I did not know the deceased but from what I've learnt about her, I must say that Guyana has lost an invaluable asset to its development in many ways. My sincere condolences to her bereaved loved ones and the people of Guyana.
    May God strengthen you in this your time of weakness.
