March 19, 1947 - February 11, 2020
Marie Amalita Alexis Marie Amalita Alexis was born in Aux Cayes, Haiti, more precisely in Port Salut, on March 19, 1947. She was one of seven children of Atouffie & Hileus Alexis. She grew up in Port Salut, where she went to school, then moved to Port-au-Prince, where she met Nicolas Remy (aka Boss Nicolas), whom she married on November 1984. In 1988 she started travelling to other Islands, like Puerto Rico and Panama, for business purposes. In 1989-1990, Marie A. Alexis took the opportunity to permanently relocate from Haiti to the United States, specifically in the Broward County, Florida, in search of a much better life. Marie loved her family. More importantly, she loved the Lord! Her favorite Bible passage was Psalm 23. Many words can describe Marie Amalita Alexis: faithful, generous, friendly, and caring. However, out of them all, the words that describe her best are good-hearted Christian woman. Marie loved cooking, doing business, aiding people, and encouraging people in their Christian faith. What I remember most about my mom was the passion and care she showed for her family. The funniest thing that my mom ever said—especially when she asked me to do something for her and I told her that’s a lot of work—was that “se je ki wè travay anpil, depi mwen kòmanse fè’l li p’ap anpil.” When I see my mom’s picture, what I will remember most is her smile, her beautiful eyes, and how I used to tease her about her height, just by standing behind her. Among many things I learned from mom include the followings: how to cook and clean better, respect for others, and how to love my family more. My last memorable moment with my mom was at the Nursing Home, where we used to chat for hours about everything. Marie Amalita Alexis passed peacefully from this life on February 11, 2020, at the age of 73, after a gradual decline in health. She was surrounded and supported by her only son, Pierre Richard Remy, and her family during the last days of her life. Although she is profoundly missed, we can rest assured in knowing that she is with the Lord. Marie Amalita Alexis is survived by her significant other, Antoine Dorvilus, her son, Pierre Richard Remy, her daughter-in-law Marie Remy, her grandchildren, Johnson, Cynthia, Aaron and Breyanna, her sisters, and many other loving family members and friends! I sincerely believe that one day, we, as believers in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, shall see again in heaven, the special place that Jesus is preparing for us. Rest in peace!
