who people referred to as “Gladys, Doune or Gla” was born on September 18, 1939, in La Montagne Jacmel, Haiti. She was the firstborn child of the late Nelzira Lindor and the late Prinston Beauville. At a young age, she left Jacmel and rejoined her parents in Port-Au-Prince. Gladys was a proud mother of three (3) children, her only daughter Marie Carole Beauville, her sons Isaac Donald Bosse and the late deceased Clark Labissiere. She had a total of seventeen (17) grandchildren and two (2) great-grandchildren. Gladys had a total of eleven (11) siblings: Fritzner, Jean- Claude, Marlene, Frantz, Evelyne, Lola, Giselene, Jackson, late deceased Monique, Fritz, and Gerard. She left behind her a ton of cousins, nephews, nieces, godchildren, and a lot of friends. Gladys will be rejoining her lovely departed husband Georges Toussaint Auguste in paradise.
Gladys was a woman with a lot of different traits. She was an encouraging, loving, supporting, and pillar in the family/ her inner circle. She would often motivate and use her authoritative manner to push anyone to strive and to better themselves. She never limited herself to any tasks, whatever a man could do she could do it herself, and oftentimes she would do it better. Gladys would always make her presence felt at any family function or gathering by telling people to socialize and enjoy each other’s company. She was full of energy and was loved by many.
Gladys had many skills: she was a great chef (cooking for a large gathering was never an issue for her), sewing was her one of specialty, a great counselor, you can confide anything to her, she was passionate about gardening and growing her own vegetables, she was one of the best midwife in our family and the list goes on.
Gladys was a great fighter and survived three major successful surgeries in less than a year. Her children Carole, Donald, and adoptive daughter Claudine, decided it was best for her to be kept at home and provided around all the clock care for her by her family and to provide Gladys with some type of normalcy, while she goes through this transition.
Gladys was full of energy, an extrovert, and had a feisty personality, which made it difficult for her to cope with her current situation. She felt helpless, while her daughter and her grandchildren were taking care of her on a daily basis. She had plans and was looking forward to moving back to her motherland of Haiti in December as soon as she felt better.
In the late evening of Sunday, June 13th, at her home in NY Gladys took her last breath in the presence of her daughters Carole and Claudine (which she always was referred to as an adoptive daughter rather than a daughter-in-law), and her lovely grandchildren, nieces, and her brother. Gladys’s last wish was to be surrounded by her family and loved ones as she departed this world, and she was granted that last wish.
With her being a great person she was given special attention from the people who cared and loved her and she often said “Mwen Travay Di Pou Sa (I worked hard for that)”.
Our deepest sympathy to her family, friends, and all those who are affected by this traumatic loss.
“May her Legacy live in Every Single One of Us”.
“Que son âme repose en paix”
