ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- The medical community and patients, along with other immediate family and friends, are in mourning over the passing of one of the first local female doctors in the Virgin Islands, Dr Natalie J. Brewley-Frett.

Dr Brewley-Frett died yesterday December 1, 2016 at the age of 65 at Peebles Hospital in Road Town. She had not been in good health for the past month, according to a close family friend.

The late Dr Brewley-Frett is the wife of businessman and social and political activist Alred C. Frett. They co-founded B&F Medical Complex.

Just last year the Government of the Virgin Islands, via the Office of Gender Affairs, honoured Dr Brewley-Frett for being the first female doctor to return home and for her contributions to the medical field.

Dr Brewley-Frett is survived by her husband, a son and daughter.

The Board of Directors, Management and Staff of Virgin Islands News Online offer our condolences to her immediate family and other loved ones.

    Condolences to Mr. Frett and family on the passing of Dr. Brewely. She was a quiet and professional doctor. We remember her in the early days when she returned home to commence her medical practice. RIP, Dr. Brewley.

    Print the bloggs. They are two sides to every life. Every Story..Media is about Giving light to both sides.. She Mezsed up alot of Island women as an immigration Doctor iin the 70s early 80s. Giving immigration the ok and clearance to deporg 9 months pregnant women... Tbose days island women were not allow to born their children here.....Investigate if u are in doubt... Maybe it was about the money back then. But deep inside she is nice person..May her soul rest in Peace..Shs made it right with her God.

      First the law is the law. But as you said there are two sides to a story. What is the side to the story of those who were being deported at 9 months according to you? Could it be that they landed in the BVI at 8 months or later which would mean that they chose to fly beyond the time recommended - or could it be that they were aware of the law and refused to go to clinic until they were almost due?

      And if the two scenarios cited were true, the question is what prompted them to do what they did (again two sides)? And that could go on. It seems to me then that we should always strive to uphold the law and so avoid these occurences. Perhaps that is why the law came about in the first place.

      We don't have to investigate a damn thing, get your child where you come from AND THAT'S THE BOTTOM LINE

      @ dawn.. I didn't know she was an immigration doctor but you know its not right to give clearence for a pregnant lady to fly at 9mths. I know you wouldn't. On the other hand I met this doc few years back. She's was one of the sweetest, most humble, always professional jewel living on Tortola.I loved her to death. May her sweet soul rest in eternal peace. Sadly missed. Gone too soon. My sincere condolences to the family.

    I am just grateful to have known and benefitted from the expertise and truly humble service of this great woman of the soil. Dr. Brewely was indeed the epitome of humility! Although she was perhaps one of the most brilliant women or person for that matter in the BVI, she was never one to flaunt it. Wished there were more like her. She would be greatly missed.

    My condolences to the Frett and Brewely families on the passing of Doc.

    @ both sides..Such malice in your heart. Why try to defame a good person? I wonder what "truth" will come out about you at your end? I hope you make it right before then.
