June 1, 1928 – October 20, 2019
Mariella Fleurantin, of Amityville, L.I., passed on Sunday, October 20th, at the age of 91 years.
Mrs. Fleurantin was born in Jacmel, Haiti, to her parents, Telamour and Valencia Benjamin. Her family recalls a beloved woman who might be called a ‘Renaissance Woman’. She was a beloved mother and grandmother, who, with a known trait of sincere generosity, would give her last to anyone in need. In remembering their mother, her children smiled and remember Mariella as a ‘jack of all trades’, a woman skilled in almost everything combined with the abilities of a politician, a comedian, and a Pastor.
Surviving is her beloved family – her children – Augustin Raymond Fleurantin, Marie Claire Fils, Jean Pacelli, Sr., Marie Laudz Jean-Jacques, Jude Fleurantin and Frantz (Maggie) Fluerantin; her grandchildren – Gregory, Jean Raymond, Ronald, Sonate (Lavon William), Jean Pacelli, Jr., Giovanni, Paganini, Dimitri, Jordani, Mario, Marcus, Marla, Marco, Marlaika, Marc, Jr., Hailu, Joel, Addam, Steven and Timothy, ; and her twelve great-grandchildren – especially Lauryn and Carter who were very close to their great-grandmother. She also leaves her sister, Theresa Voight; and Ms. Scarlet A. Martin, Shirley Dorsaiville and her nephew, Richard Guillet (Tiger), who cared lovingly for Mariella.
Predeceasing her is her beloved husband, Cidon; and her siblings – Sylvana Antoine, Elza Ladouceur, Celide Antoine and Marie Diendonne Jean Pierre.
Family and friends will gather at the funeral home on Friday, October 25th, from 4:00 – 9:00 p.m. On Saturday, October 26th, the Funeral Mass will be offered at St. Martin of Tours R.C. Church in Amityville at 9:30 a.m. Entombment will follow at St. Charles Cemetery in Farmingdale.
