Obituary

“We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord”

On December 6, 1937 in Port de Paix, Haiti a beautiful baby girl was born to the proud parents of Venenus Prudent and Thessia Vile. She was given the name Marie Acela Prudent.

In 1967 Marie Cela migrated to Nassau, Bahamas seeking a better life for her and her family. While in the Bahamas she started her own business as a merchant, selling various products throughout the many Bahamian Islands.

In the early 1980’s she again took a great risk, for the betterment of her children, and moved her family to the United States. She settled in Miami, Florida. Marie Acela was a loving mother to her children and provided as much as she could for them. She had various nick names (K.K, grandma, momma). She was a very hard worker, and a very giving person. She is loved and respected by many.

She enjoyed many different activities, however her favorite past time was gardening. She enjoyed nature and the various plants and their healing functions. If you told her you weren’t feeling well, she would go and find the plant. She would have you feeling better in no time.

In 2009, she suffered a massive stroke that left her paralyzed. Despite these many obstacles she continued to thrive and impact the lives of others. She kept a positive outlook on life and always had a smile on her face.

On Sunday, December 3, 2017 Marie Acela bid us farewell and went home to be with her heavenly father. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
