Barbara Gloudon’s Death at Hospital After Husband’s Passing


Regret to inform you of journalist Barbara Gloudon’s sudden death. We were informed of such heartbreaking news on May 12, 2022. According to her daughter, she passed away last night in the hospital, days after her husband, Ancile Gloudon.

Must be noted that the US day News does not confirm nor reject any of this information. Just in case you read incorrect details, please, allow us to know.

Born in 1935, Mrs. Gloudon was not only well-experienced in journalism, but also in writing such as playwright and theatre chair. She started working as a scriptwriter for Jamaica’s Little Theatre Movement (LTM) in 1969 besides writing radio drama.

Mrs. Barbara had a distinguished career as a journalist, in which capacity she was honored with two Seprod Awards from the Press Association of Jamaica as well as in the Order of Distinction as an officer.

Putting those aside, she used to host a radio talk show for thirty years which led her to become chair of the LTM. To name a few of her other awards and honors, Gloudon was granted the Order of Jamaica in 1992 and became a fellow of the Institute of Jamaica in 2012.

“RIP Barbara Gloudon. Grew up listening to her on the radio because of my parents.”

Her awards and recognition:

  • 1975: Officer in the Order of Distinction in 1975 for her journalistic services
  • 1992: Order of Jamaica
  • 2006: Gleaner Honour Award for her contributions to art and culture
  • 2012: Elected a Fellow of the Institute of Jamaica
  • 2013: Inducted into Jamaican Press Association Hall of Fame
  • 2015: Special Lifetime Achievement Award, for her unparalleled service to journalism, Press Association of Jamaica Awards

As it is briefly mentioned above, Goodison started her career as reported in The Gleaner newspaper besides working as a columnist, using the pseudonym “Stella” at the Jamaica Star.

About her personal life, Goodison married the chemist and food technologist, Ancile Gloudon a native of Port of Spain, Trinidad on 23 April 1960. The lovely pair would subsequently have three children, and work together to build their first home.

Working as a features editor, editor, and reporter at both The Gleaner and The Star until 1978, she was later able to receive the inaugural year of the Seprod Awards for Journalism, and again in 1968, winning recognition from the Press Association of Jamaica.

Gloudon was invited by the government to cover the art revolution in Britain in the 1960s, as it’s told, for showing a particular talent for reporting on the cast, as well as the event. May the legend rest in peace.
