Nadieus Augustin Charlucien

Charlucien

Nadieus Augustin Charlucien, known to all of us as “Papi Nad”, was born on May 5, 1927, in the coastal town of Foucault, Haiti.  He was the beloved son of Anacia and Charleus and the youngest of 6 siblings.  Nadieus was cherished by all his siblings who cared for him and looked after him.  He had a special bond with his closest sister Ephanie known to us as Matante.  Ephanie was instrumental in making sure that her young brother learned how to read and write.  Ephanie negotiated with their father, convincing him to send Nadieus away to school as there were no schools in Foucault.   Their father was very reluctant to let him go away, fearing that Nadieus would be abused by strangers. On May 14, 1947, Ephanie and Nadieus would help build a small school. They would then build the first Catholic Church in Faucault in 1968 giving the opportunity for other children to attend school and church in their village.

While Nadieus received only the equivalent of a fifth-grade education; he valued education, he made sure that all his children went to school, giving each of them the best that he had.  Nadieus was very independent, smart, disciplined, determined, and forward thinking.  At the age of 84, he started taking English and computer classes and began studying for the US citizenship examination.  He took his studies very seriously. He never missed a class – rain, sleet, or snow.

Nadieus was a Christian, a loving husband, a proud and devoted father and grandfather, and a loyal friend.  He was a gentle man with an incredible inner strength.  He was very courageous and he never complained.  He fought a great fight battling prostate cancer up to his final breath.

Papi Nad, you are our favorite person and an inspiration to us all. You leaving us   has created a void which will never be filled.  We love you, we miss you, we thank you, and we pray that you are at peace.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Gregory’s Church, Dorchester,  on Saturday, January 23, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. Visitation will be held at the church at 9AM. Interment Cedar Grove cemetery

Memorial donations in lieu of flowers can be made in honor of Papi Nad to support the first Faucault primary school.

Marie Julienne Morin

Morin, Marie 001Marie Julienne Morin was born on October 24, 1939 in St. Marc, Haiti. Her parents were Marie Almiracle Miolis and Gonzalez Felix. She was the oldest girl of nine children. Marie graduated from Ecole Seurs De L’instruction Chretienne and she also later attended a secretarial school to study business. On September 2, 1961 she married Michel Morin and out of this union came 2 daughters Ketty and Valerie. Marie was the matriarch of the Felix family.

In 1967 they came to New York to begin their lives together as a family. Then they decided to eventually settle in Boston, Mass. Marie worked in the insurance industry until she retired. She was a dedicated soccer wife who hosted several soccer teams from near and far. Her true passion was sewing and designing clothes. She would sew for many family and friends designing beautiful dresses and bridal gowns. Her creativity was unbelievable in creating the most amazing pieces of clothing. She was a devoted catholic that was very involved in her parish. She frequently volunteered her time to the church and sang in the church choir. She not only attended mass every Sunday, but more significantly put her faith in action through her many deeds of kindness. Marie loved her family dearly. She was a disciplinarian, who raised her daughters and influenced her grandchildren.

On February 1, 2015 Marie suffered a stroke that left her paralyzed and not able to speak correctly. She spent that month in the hospital and the month of March in Rehab. She moved on April 1, 2015 to Philadelphia to live with her daughter Ketty.  Marie was a warrior and continued to fight back trying to become stronger when unfortunately she had a 2nd stroke on October 10, 2015.  This stroke took the very last movement and speech from her body. As her health slowly deteriorated each week both Ketty and Valerie was by her side in the hospital. But our precious Lord decided that she did not have to suffer any longer and called her home on January 2, 2016.  As Marie took her last breath her daughter Ketty was with her and made sure that she received the last rites before death by a priest.  Her wish was to be buried in Boston where she lived most of her life in much happiness.

Marie is survived by her sisters Evelyn and Maude, and her brothers Jean Claude, Guy, Fritz, Hans, Serge, and Marcel.  And by her daughters Ketty and Valerie. Her grandchildren Dwayne, Marcus, Kayleigh. And her great grandchild Ava.And a host of nieces and nephews and other Felix family members.
