Lady Ena Pereira Thomas, a former Permanent Secretary and the first Chief of Protocol in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, has died.
Minister E.P. Chet Greene has expressed condolences to her family on behalf of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Immigration and Trade.
He describes Lady Ena as a dedicated and conscientious official with a strong commitment to diplomatic procedures and administration, with ambassadorial rank.
She was an inspiration to those who worked with her at the Ministry, Greene says. He adds that Lady Ena was also known for gracefully facilitating many official ceremonies and activities through her tenure in office.
Greene says she will be deeply missed by her former colleagues, friends and foreign officials who worked with her.
Lady Ena was the widow of the late Sir James “Baggs” Thomas, former High Commissioner to London.
