Madame Lise Marc (neé Laurenceau) est retournée à la maison du Père céleste le mardi 2 juin 2020 à l'âge de 90 ans. La regrettée Manmie Lise était une étudiante de la première promotion du Collège Pastoral et était toujours fière de sa foi catholique. Elle était parmi les pionnières du Conseil du Renouveau Charismatique des Haïtiens Catholiques d'Outre-mer et aussi l'un des membres de ce Conseil pendant plusieurs années. Elle était une servante très heureuse dans la vigne du Seigneur.

En outre, Manmie Lise était très engagée au Centre National de l'Apostolat Haïtien. Elle était parmi les architectes de la grande soirée de gala à l'occasion de l'élévation épiscopale de Monseigneur Guy Sansaricq comme évêque auxiliaire du diocèse de Brooklyn-Queens. Elle avait organisé une levée de fonds pendant 25 ans pour le Centre National de l'Apostolat Haïtien à l'occasion de la fête de Noël. Pour beaucoup de participants, cette soirée de levée fonds est toujours une grande soirée.

Monseigneur Guy Sansaricq a toujours exprimé sa profonde reconnaissance à Mme Lise Marc pour ce grand geste de solidarité à l'endroit du Centre National de l'Apostolat Haïtien.

Rappelons que Manmie Lise est la première étudiante haïtienne qui a étudié au Lycée Alexandre Pétion en Haïti. Après ses études classiques en Haïti elle s'était rendue à Montréal (Canada) pour étudier les soins infirmiers au Collège de La Misericordia a Montréal, Quebec. Elle laissa le Canada pour venir s'établir aux États-Unis. C'est là qu'elle acheva ses études en soins infirmiers. Elle a travaillé comme une infirmière administratrice dirigeant en charge de 20,000 patientes dans un centre médical a New York jusqu'à l'âge de la retraite.

Manmie Lise était parmi les oratrices de la 31e convention du Centre National de l'Apostolat Haïtien dans l'archidiocèse de Boston au mois de Juin 2015. J'ai toujours pris un grand plaisir à entendre Manmie Lise. Elle était vraiment formée à la bonne école. Cliquez sur ce lien pour entendre Lise Marc: https://youtu.be/IdpDuM-HV0o

Par ailleurs, Manmie Lise était une femme de grande foi. Très pieuse, elle est restée attachée à l'homme de sa vie le regretté Dr Gérard Marc qui est retourné à la maison du Père après 54 ans de mariage. De cette union sont nés 3 enfants (Gene, Patrick et Linda), 4 petits enfants et une petit-petit enfant: Les famille son : Gene Bernard Marc and son épouse Margaret Alexandre Marc. La fille de Gene et sa famille: Nicole Marc Campbell, Jeremy Campbell (époux), Olivia (petit-petit fille) and Diane Jackson Marc (mère de Nicole). Son regretté fils, Patrick Jude Marc, son petit fils Philip Patrick Marc et sa mère Kim Marc-Henderson. La famille de Dr. Linda Marc-Clérismé, son regretté beaux-fils Jean Rénald Clérismé, PhD et leur jumeaux George-Rénald Clérismé and Xavier-Rénald Clérismé. Manmie Lise était toujours fière de son époux le Dr Marc qui était agronome de formation et auteur de plusieurs ouvrages, il a étudié a l'Institut Agricole d'Oka, Université de Montréal.

Rappelons aussi que la regrettée Lise Marc était membre de l'Équipe Pastorale et Assistante Coordinatrice du groupe Souffle Nouveau de la paroisse du Sacré Coeur où elle organisait des sessions de formation spirituelle. Elle était parmi les membres très actifs de cette paroisse. Elle avait un ministère dans un milieu rural en Haïti où elle apporta un soutien considérable à plusieurs couples cheminant vers le sacrement du mariage.

Monseigneur Guy Sansaricq présente ses sincères condoléances aux enfants et à la famille de la regrettée Lise Marc en ces mots: Notre Coeur saigne à la pensée que nous ne pourrons plus jouir de la compagnie de Manmi Lise. Mais que le Seigneur nous console! La vie sur terre, tout importante qu'elle soit, n'est pas permanente. C'est un temps qui nous conduit vers notre véritable destinée. Saint Paul nous rappelle, qu'au fond, la mort est de loin "la meilleure chose." C'est comme la remise du diplome à la fin des études, ce que la langue anglaise appelle la "Graduation." Si d'un coté,nous essuyons nos larmes, d'un autre coté en raison de notre foi dans la PROMESSE, nous rendons grace à Dieu. Merci Seigneur pour cette dame que nous avons croisée sur nos Chemins! Merci pour l'exemple qu'elle a donné! Merci pour l'héritage de foi et d'amour qu'elle a passé à ses enfants, sa famille élargie et à tous ceux qui l'ont connue. Qu'elle connaisse maintenant la joie de la VISION.

Qu'elle ait la joie de rejoindre son mari et ce fils qui l'ont précédée. Là où elle est maintenant, elle n'aura pas besoin de soleil car le Seigneur lui-mème sera sa lumière. A la droite du Seigneur qu'elle jouisse à jamais de la plénitude de la joie. Le temporel débouche sur l'éternel. A bientòt chère Manmie Lise!

Manmie Lise aimait la lecture, la mode, la bonne conversation. Elle aimait son Dieu, son mari, ses enfants, petits-enfants et son Église. Elle a adopté Monsieur Marco Laurenceau, son neveu qui s'est donné sans réserve à son service pendant 3 ans, à lui prodiguer les soins nécessaires avec amour jusqu'à dernier moment. Elle a donc légué Marco comme frère à ses enfants.

Un service est planifié à Queens, New York où les dispositions florales seront acceptées. La date et l'heure du service seront publiées bientôt. Les cartes de sympathie et notes personnelles pour la famille peuvent être envoyées à l'adresse suivante :

Enfin, nous demandons au Seigneur d'accueillir la regrettée Lise Laurenceau Marc dans son paradis. Brother Tob Pour Le Centre National

Mrs. Lise Marc (born Laurenceau) returned to the Father's house on Tuesday, June 2, 2020 at the age of 90. The late Mother Lise is a student of the first promotion of the Pastoral College and she was always proud of her Catholic faith. I have to mention that she was among the pioneers of the Charismatic Renewal Council of Overseas Haitian Catholics, and was also one of the members of the Charismatic Renewal Council for several years. Mrs. Lise Marc was a very happy servant in the Lord's vineyard.

Mother Lise was very involved in the National Center of the Haitian Apostolate. She was among the architects of the grand Gala Evening at the Episcopal elevation of The Most Reverend Guy Sansaricq as Auxiliary Bishop of the Diocese of Brooklyn-Queens. She organized a fundraiser for 25 years for the National Center of the Haitian Apostolate on the occasion of Christmas. For many participants this fundraising evening is always a great first class event. Bishop Guy Sansaricq has always expressed his deep gratitude to Mrs. Lise Marc for this gesture of solidarity towards the National Center of the Haitian Apostolate.

Mother Lise was the first Haitian female student who attended Lycée Petion in Haiti. After her classical studies in Haiti she went to study Nursing at Misericordia College in Montreal, Quebec, then she left Canada to come and settle in the United States. She completed her nursing studies in the United States. She worked as a nurse administrator managing a health center in New York City with 20,000 patients until retirement age. Mother Lise was among the speakers of the 31st convention of the National Center of the Haitian Apostolate in the Archdiocese of Boston in June 2015. I always enjoyed hearing Mother Lise. She had very good diction having been well trained in languages at school. Click on this link to listen to Lise Marc: https://youtu.be/IdpDuM-HV0o

Mother Lise was a woman of great faith, very pious and who remained faithful to the man of her life the late Dr Gerard Marc who returned to the Father's house after 54 years of marriage. From this union the Marc couple had 3 children (Gene, Patrick and Linda), 4 grandchildren and 1 great-grand daughter. The families include: Gene Bernard Marc and his wife Margaret Alexandre Marc. The daughter of Gene and her family: Nicole Marc-Campbell (grand-daughter), Jeremy Campbell (spouse), Olivia (grand-daughter) and Diane Jackson Marc (mother of Nicole). Her late son, Patrick Jude Marc, her grandson Philip Patrick Marc and Kim Marc-Henderson (mother of Philip). The family of Dr. Linda Marc-Clérismé, her late son-in-law Jean Rénad Clérismé, PhD and their twin sons George-Rénald Clérismé and Xavier-Rénald Clérismé. Mother Lise was always proud of her lovely husband, the late Dr Gerard Marc who was an agronomist by training and the author of several books. Dr Marc completed his studies at the Institute of Agriculture in Oka, University of Montreal. He was always with his lovely wife, Mother Lise wherever she went.

In addition, the late Lise Marc was a member of the Pastoral Team and Assistant Coordinator of the Souffle Nouveau group in the parish of the Sacre Coeur where she organized spiritual training sessions. She was among the very active members of this parish. She supported a ministry in a rural area in Haiti where she brought considerable support to several couples preparing for the sacrament of marriage.

Bishop Guy Sansaricq extends his sincere condolences to the children and family of the late Lise Marc in these words" I share your deep grief at the departure from this world of such a lovely person, who was your mother or a close relative. My heart goes out to you. At the same time I pray that you receive a special grace of consolation. Death as you know is on everybody's path. Life on earth, although most important, is not our final destiny. A enjoyable future has been prepared for those who embrace the COVENANT. Mother Lise was obviously one who lived by faith and love. Her concern for her neighbor translated in dedicated activities of charities. Our prayers of thanksgiving escort her to the throne of glory where a place has been reserved for her. She has now found what she longed for all her life!

Dear Children and relatives, be assured of our love for you and our prayers!

Finally, the late Lise loved reading, fashion, good conversation. She loved her God, her husband, her children, grandchildren and her Church. She adopted Mr. Marco Laurenceau, her nephew who gave himself wholeheartedly to his service, to provide her with the necessary care with love for a period of 3 years until her final moment. So she has bequeathed Marco as a brother to her children.

A service is being planned in Queens, New York where floral arrangements will be accepted. The date and time of the service will be published shortly. Sympathy cards and personal notes for the family can be sent to the following address:

Family of Lise Laurenceau Marc C/O Dr. Linda Marc-Clérismé 190-15 90 Avenue Hollis, NY 11423

We ask the Lord to welcome the Regretted Lise Marc into his paradise! Brother Tob For The National Center

Lise (Laurenceau) Marc

have a memory or condolence to add?

ADD A MEMORY
Pierre (Lesly) Thevenin

Aunt Lise has been a blessing and an inspiration to all of us who knew her. She had guided so many of us in upholding strong family and moral values. We all remain in awe and forever thankful to the Creator for all of the time she had spent with us in this physical realm. The special moments, occasions and celebrations when we interacted with her will imprint in our hearts and minds a sliver of her kindness and wisdom that she imparted on us.
Furthermore, I also remain impressed and inspired by her devotion and discipline to her faith. I feel so honored and proud that we have the same God-mother and she became a motherly figure to myself and my siblings. She naturally fulfilled such a role for so many others. Her love and strength of family values are well within the tradition of Grann Ninninn (Elvira Laurenceau), Aunt Cora (Mme Cora Bernard) and other shining examples of strong women that have nurtured and guided the family.
We, the Thevenin siblings express our deepest CONDOLENCES to our dear cousins, her surviving children Linda and Gene along with her grandchildren, as well as Uncle Adrien and Auntie Anne-Marie. We extend our sympathies and CONDOLENCES to all our cousins and family members.
As we remember and celebrate her life (her achievements, her elegance, her love of education and community upliftment ), let us remain thankful for all that she has taught us and all that we have gained in our minds and hearts by the example of her life.

I had the pleasure of meeting Lise over twenty years ago at Sacred Heart of Cambria Heights. We worked on many projects for the Haitian Apostolate. Somehow we clicked. She was a dear friend, an advisor who introduced me to the “guardian angel” devotion. She will be missed by our Group Souffle Nouveau. My daughter and I send our sincere condolences to the Laurenceau and Marc families.
Pars en paix Lise. Tu as bien travaillé . Ta couronne t’attend auprès du Père !

Much love ,

To my beautiful Aunt Lise,
Words cannot express my grief and sadness for not being there as you are being laid to rest. Thank you for all that you taught us and sharing the Laurenceau values, vision, determination, kindness, spirituality, and the love for others that your mother and our grandmother Gran Ninnin taught us. In many ways you played a major role in my being who I am, and for that I will forever be grateful. I will miss our talks, your cheerfulness and youthful spirit. I know the last few months of your life were not easy. I am glad you are now at peace among the many family members who preceded you and genuinely loved you. Yes, love always win!

A special goodby kiss from your loving sister Anne Marie. She definitely sensed your departure, for she kept saying she heard your voice in her condo (loved ones sense these thingd) the week you passed ❤

Sleep in peace Tante Lise. You will always be in our hearts.

Your loving niece,
Guithele

Aunt Lyse was a kind, loving, caring and generous person. She would always give great advice and important life lessons to the younger generation. She encouraged young people to pursue higher education. She also emphasized the importance of praying to God and reading the bible. Aunt Lyse wanted the best for everyone. Her loving and nurturing personality will be greatly missed. I love you Aunt Lyse. Rest in peace and love.

My grandfather Charles Laurenceau had many children, including his daughter Lise. His firstborn was Victor C. Laurenceau, my father. When Charles passed away, him and his wife Elvira had many young children, so Victor took the responsibility of helping to raise all his siblings including my beloved Aunt Lise.

Aunt Lise was dear to me because when growing up, people would often tell me I looked like her. However, I loved her because of her good heart: loving, caring, always helping people. She lived by hospitality.

In 1971, a year after my husband and I moved from Haiti to Canada, I gave birth to my first child. Upon seeing my maiden name “Laurenceau”, the hospital nurses asked me if I knew a Lise Laurenceau. When I said that’s my aunt, they were amazed and said that Lise had completed her nursing internship just a few years earlier at that exact same hospital! They shared beautiful experiences with me of how much they appreciated my Aunt Lise for her kindness. That’s a comforting moment I never forgot.

I know Aunt Lise had a deep respect and a strong appreciation for the Bible as God’s Word, and she took pleasure in reading it. Every time her and I spoke, our conversations were somehow elevated toward the topic of our Creator and His Word the Bible. Aunt Lise left behind a precious legacy worthy of imitation by her sons, daughter, grandchildren, nephews, nieces and friends, as well as by all who knew her both near and far. As the Bible assures us in John 5:28, 29, Lise is without a doubt in God’s memory.

With love, please accept my family’s deepest sympathy.
Of Luc Cinéus and Edna Laurenceau Cinéus were born five children: Luckenson, Luce-Edna, Josué, Jonathanaël and Abigaïl.

We know this is a hard time for Aunt Lise’s children and our prayers go out to you. Again, as a family, we offer you our sincere love and our heartfelt condolences. May Jehovah, the God of all comfort, heal your hearts through his loving care and his promise of life in Paradise.

J'ai eu la chance en plusieurs occasions de partager quelques idees avec Madame Lise, elle etait une femme tres sage et bien eduquee. Elle etait venue me parler en decembre 2013 pour la premiere fois et j,avais une grande admiration pour elle. Malheureusement apres tout ce temps de dure labeur, elle devait aller se reposer dans la maison de son Papa cheri createur et dans les bras de sa maman Marie.
Bon voyage Sr. Lise Marc et merci pour tous!
May the Angels lead you into paradise ✨
