Obituary

IN LOVING MEMORY 

Madeleine “Lise” Paul

August 1, 1949 ~ December 10, 2020

Madeleine was a loving and compassionate person who loved her family and friends. She was a strong, determined and fiercely independent woman. A pillar of strength. She wasn’t afraid of anyone or anything. A self-sacrificing protector.  She derived a great deal of satisfaction from caring for others. She had a powerful maternal instinct which made her a mother figure to many people that she cared for deeply as though she birthed them herself.  

She loved her country of birth, Haiti, and her hometown, Trasayel. Madeleine carried with her a sense of pride and respect for Haitian history. She valued traditions whether it be cultural and familial. Madeleine was a credible vivid storyteller and spoke to the heart of her listeners by drawing them in with her magnetic force. Most of her stories were storytelling through the combination of words and songs about real life situations of people she knew, family history and events she’d experienced. She would spend hours sitting with family and friends laughing and telling stories. 

Madeleine was a powerful praying woman and often encouraged those she loved by saying “pran kouraj” or singing a line from one of her favorite church songs “Pran kouraj pa febli o, min bondye nou ka-p vini o”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2S3vxTSUI_Y

She will be deeply missed by all who knew her.  Her beautiful life will forever be cherished in the lives of her family...

NAN MEMWA

Madeleine “Lise” Paul

1 Out,1949 ~ 10 Desanm, 2020

Madeleine se te yon moun ki te gen anpil konpasyon ak lanmou e li te renmen fanmi ak zanmi li. Li te yon fanm total kapital, avek detèminasyon epi trè endepandan. Li pa’t pè anyen oswa okenn moun.  Se te yon moun ki te pran plezi nan ede moun. Li te genyen yon enstenk manman ki te fè li paret tankou yon manman pou anpil moun e  li te renmen yo tankou pròp pitit li.

Li te remen peyi  Kote li fet la, Ayiti espesyalman Trasayel kote li te fet la. Madeleine te genyen yon fyète ak respè pou istwa Ayiti. Li te bay tradisyon yo anpil valè, kit yo te kiltirel, kit yo te familyal. Li te yon moun ki te konn rakonte istwa byen kote ke pawol li yo te tankou yon fos manyetik ki atire atansyon moun ki chita ap koute li. Li te konn itilize pawol avek ti chante pou li ka rakonte istwa reyel de moun ke li te konnen, istwa fanmi ak evènman ke li te viv.  Madeleine se te moun ki te konn pase tan chita ak fanmi, zanmi bay blag epi rakonte istwa. 

Madeleine se te yon moun ki te konn priye anpil e anpil fwa li te konn ankouraje tout moun li renmen yo, li di yo “ pran kouraj” oswa li chante kek lin nan youn nan chante legliz  li pi renmen yo “ “Pran kouraj pa febli o, min bondye nou ka-p vini o”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2S3vxTSUI_Y

Lanmò Madeleine vrèman make/afekte tout moun ki te konnen li.  Lavi  li ap toujou grave  nan memwa fanmi li...
