Shirley Linton, the mother who lost her daughter and three grandchildren when an apartment building at Arch Cot, Brittons Hill, St Michael, collapsed 14 years ago, has died.

A family member confirmed that Linton passed away at her Chapman Lane, Bridgetown home yesterday.

She was a dialysis patient and had to use a wheelchair after one of her feet was amputated.

Linton, who raised her daughter and son-in-law’s child, Doniya, who was only a few days old when the family perished in the Arch Cot tragedy, constantly cried out for justice and compensation for the lives lost.

Her daughter Cassandra Codrington, husband Donavere and three young children Shaquanda, Shaquille and Yashiro, perished when the apartment building in which they lived collapsed into a hole beneath it, on August 26, 2007.
