Obituary of Jeanne D. Michaud
Jeanne D. Michaud, age 84, returned home peacefully to the Lord at 8:08 a.m. on Tuesday, April 21, 2020 in Nyack, NY. She was born October 16, 1935 in Port-au-Prince Haiti to her mother Anne Remy and her father Luc Michaud. Jeanne was the 8th of 10 children.
Jeanne truly lived a full life. She was a businesswoman who ran a boutique and restaurant in Port au Prince, Haiti. She relocated to the United States in 1986 during civil unrest. Speaking very little English she worked extremely hard to put herself through school, she became Cordon Blue Chef and Certified Nurse’s Assistant. She worked at Valentine adult home until they went out of business and she retired. Those that knew her loved her because they knew she was truly a servant of the Lord and the Lord’s people. Jeanne had a way of touching the spirit of everyone that she encountered. She loved to help and be of service throughout her life. It never mattered what your circumstances were in your life, if she could help, she would and never treated you any less for it. In Haiti she not only employed the youth in the neighborhood to work at the businesses she also became a surrogate mother to them all.
Jeanne was truly a selfless woman with a big heart. She was many things to many people. She was a sister, a wife, a mother, a grandmother, a great- grandmother, a friend, a counselor, a teacher, and a shoulder when you needed one to lean on. She was loved dearly, and she will be truly missed.
She is survived by her last living sister Gladys Jean-Baptiste. Jeanne is also survived by her 6 children Jacques Guercy, Yanick Joseph, Magalie St. Louis, Jessy Delaunay, Gregory Guercy and Eric Hall. Aside from her 6 children, she is survived by 15 grandchildren; Joseph, Lenick, Pascale, Jude, Vallery, Jessica, Legouaze Jr, Robertson, Vanessa, Guerlyne, Frandy, Floryane, Klyvens, Gemalie, Tayjja and Tajmah. In addition, she survived and blessed to have touched the lives of her 11 great-grandchildren.
