JEANNE GHISLAINE JEAN-CHARLES

Apr 04, 1952 -
May 04, 2018

Jeanne Ghislaine (Emile) Jean-Charles was born in Jeremie, Section Guinaude, Haiti on April 4, 1952. Those who loved her knew her as Jeanne, Ghislaine, Raymonde or Nene. She was the first child of Lucina Jean (dec.) and Aurel Emile (dec.). As a young woman, she left Jeremie and traveled to Port-au-Prince. There, she met and married Vilbrun Jean-Charles in 1975.

Ghislaine was a merchant and frequently traveled from Haiti to the United States and throughout the Caribbean for her business. She worked hard and made many sacrifices for the benefit of her family. She had an easy smile and loved to laugh. Ghislaine was a generous woman who shared her time and treasures with friends and family, near and far. Her home and kitchen were always open to those in need.

Her travels and activities were curtailed by illness. In the summer of 2017 Ghislaine’s health took a turn for the worse. After a nine-month battle filled with complications, she succumbed to her illness on May 4, 2018. She was a courageous fighter to the end.

While no longer physically with us, Ghislaine’s light continues to shine in the memories of those who knew and loved her best: Her sisters (Marise, Gertha, Recita and Ghislaine), her brother (Oreste), her four children (Pierre-Mary, Junior, Darlyne and Kaven), six grandchildren, one great-grandchild, and a host of extended family and friends.

Forever in our hearts….

 

Poem for the back of the program

Farewell Dear Mother

By an Unknown Author

 

Somewhere in my heart beneath all my grief and pain,

Is a smile I still wear at the sound of your dear name.

The precious word is ‘MOTHER’, she was my world you see,

But now my heart is breaking cause she’s no longer here with me.

God chose her for His angel to watch me from above,

To guide me and advise me and know that I’m still loved.

The day she had to leave me when her life on earth was through,

God had better plans for her, for this, I surely knew.

When I think of her kind heart and all those loving years,

My memories surround me and I can’t hold back the tears.

She truly was my best friend, someone I could confide in,

She always had a tender touch and a warm and gentle grin.

I want to thank you Mother for teaching me so well,

And though the time has come that I must bid you this farewell.

I’ll remember all you’ve taught me and make you proud you’ll see.

Thank you my Dear Mother for all the love you showed me.

Although you’ve left this earth and now you’ve taken flight,

Add or view memories

Be the first to share your memory.
