Therese Jean Louis
March 8, 1926 – February 5, 2021
Sister Thérèse François Fils Jean Louis was Born as Thérèse François Fils. Her star emitted its first rays on March 8, 1926 and died out on February 5, 2021. In a month and two days, she would have celebrated her 95th birthday. She was so intelligent that she chose to register herself as soon as possible in the list of those who will share eternity with Jesus Christ, The King of Kings, and The Lord of Lords. She was the second oldest of 10 children. She is the sixth one (7) to pass away, but three others are still alive: Renette, Vanina, and Roselène. Therese wasn’t as famous as Sister Theresa of Calcutta, but one thing is certain her name is written in the LAMB'S BOOK OF LIFE.
Thérèse married Etienne Jean Louis who was a shoemaker and farmer on April 30, 1959. Unfortunately, after 14 years of marriage in 1973 she lost Etienne leaving her a young widow with four children Frantz, Pierre Richard, Yvrose and Etzer. She was a devotee, a fighter and a missionary in the Church. Religious and school education were the only legacies left to her children. Her work as a trader, and her task as a cleaning lady were, along with prayer, the only tools allowing her to educate her children who lost their beloved father at such a young age.
Therese did not live an easy life. At the age of 8 years old Therese was in a terrible accident that should have cost her her life. She had to deal with the death of her husband, first child and last child. Navigating through the United States without much english, suffering abuse at the hands of others yet still remain happy and hopeful. THE ALMIGHTY did grant His grace towards her. Neither Covid-19, nor days could have destroyed her, nor death, it was only Her CREATOR, Her SAVIOR, Her MASTER who called her to be rested in peace by waiting for Jesus second coming. Sometimes all those who were with her, always heard her favorite songs humming throughout the day at dawn and dusk: “Time is short,” “Let’s keep running,” “The plowman returns to his village,” “I thirst for Your presence ”more than Conqueror, without forgetting her favorite Psalms“ Ps. 23, ”“ Ps 121 ”and psalm 1 The sower of hope has gone. BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD!
Despite all Therese has been put through God had granted His grace towards her. Neither sickness, nor bad health could have taken this gem from us but only our Almighty God who has the final say. All who know Therese her for always having a song in her heart and for remaining one of God’s most faithful servants.
