MERCYLYN M. BOURNE
Central High Alumna, Mercylyn Bourne, passed away in hospital last Sunday, January 29, 2023 after a prolonged battle with health issues. She was 70 years old.
Mercylyn attended Central in the mid-sixties and will be remembered by many as an outstanding athlete who also represented Guyana in field hockey. She came to Canada in the early seventies and for those of us who attended the Central High Alumni Reunion in 2018, we are left with the memory of her ever smiling face as she reunited with former classmates that evening.
