The media fraternity was yesterday plunged into mourning after journalist Patricia Roxborough-Wright lost her battle with cancer.

The 41-year-old is a past employee of The Gleaner and The Jamaica Observer.

"The fraternity has lost one of its brightest minds," said Janet Silvera, president of the Western Jamaica Media Association.

"Those who were fortunate to have been touched by Pat Roxborough will remember a vibrant, good-humoured and incredibly talented person who was a consummate professional never afraid to ask tough questions. Pat was a true example of what it takes to become a good journalist. She was ambitious, maintaining her competitiveness while ensuring good relations with her colleagues," Silvera said.

The Press Association of Jamaica (PAJ), of which Roxborough-Wright was a member, said, "The fraternity has lost a wonderful human being, one who had the highest regard for standards and values in the profession."

The PAJ added: "Her indelible contribution to journalism will never be forgotten."

Roxborough-Wright was married to fellow journalist Nodley.

She was a first-year student at the Norman Manley Law School when she became ill in 2010.
