Obituary

Maryse Degraff Achille was born to Hermann Degraff and Germaine Degraff (Volcy) on November 19, 1955 in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, the second oldest of seven children.

Maryse went on to graduate from the School of Nursing in Haiti in 1979 and then migrated to Brooklyn, New York in search of the American Dream where she fell in love, married and had two boys, Carl H. Achille and Stanley H. Achille.

As a Registered Nurse, Maryse dedicated over 40 years of her life to the profession, commencing her long and distinguished career at the NYC Health and Hospitals Corporation’s Queens General Medical Center as a member of the coveted I.V. Team, then to the Flushing Medical Center in Flushing, N.Y., and lastly completing her career at Jamaica Hospital in Southeast Queens where she rose to assistant Supervisor of her unit, retiring in 2017.

Known as a hard worker and well respected for her strong dedication to everything she set her sights on, Maryse was a fun-loving, sincere, and affectionate mother figure to so many.

Maryse enjoyed being around people, and they enjoyed being around her. She was full of energy and life and brightened up any setting, this earned her a huge place in all of our hearts.

Everyone loved Maryse, also affectionately known to the closest people in her life as Mama, ShuShu, and Grandma Shu-Shu to her beloved granddaughter Valerie.

Mama will be deeply missed.

Maryse is survived by her two sons, Carl and Stanley, her many siblings, nephews, nieces, and granddaughter, Valerie.

Carl H. Achille
