July 27, 1917 – April 26, 2021
Anna Lespérance was born on July 27, 1917 in Léogâne, Haiti. Her parents, Estelancy Jean-Philippe Lespérance and Elzilie Domingue Tranquile, had nine children of whom Anna was the third. Her siblings include Joel Lespérance, Mrs. Estelancia Lespérance Michel, Mrs. Noel Tingue (Lidie Lespérance), Mrs. Raoul Jeudi (Losina Lespérance), Mrs. Gaston Pavrette (Kellita Lespérance), Mrs. Rose Lespérance Innocent, Rebecca Lespérance and Nosimene Lespérance. Anna is now survived by her younger sister, Mrs. Rose Lespérance Innocent. Her father, tenderly called Papa Mulate by all his children and grandchildren, raised his children to be Christians. Anna was very fond of her father and followed Christ as he did.
On August 18, 1940, Anna and Clement Desravines had her first son, Wilbert Desravines. She lovingly cared for Wilbert for the next twenty years, before giving birth to her second son, Sony Lapointe with Hector Lapointe. A few years later, they had her only daughter, Kettly Ferdinand. Anna worked for over two decades at L’Hôpital Général in Port-au-Prince, Haiti as a nursing assistant to care for her family before immigrating to the United States in the 1976.
Anna Lespérance loved her family, friends, and her faith. She always strived to be the best caregiver or hostess. True to herself, she worked in the Unites State as a homecare assistant making a positive difference in the lives of many. She finally retired when she was in her seventies due health reasons. However, there was more love in her life to give. She helped raise countless grandchildren to the adulthood and lived to see her great, great-grandchildren.
On April 26, 2021, Anna Lespérance said her farewells with her daughter, Kettly, and granddaughter, Stacey, by her bedside. She leaves behind her three children, twenty-two grandchildren, twenty-seven great-grandchildren, and six great, great-grandchildren. Now, she rests in God’s loving hands.
The family of Anna Lesperance wishes to thank everyone for their kind expressions of sympathy, prayers, and all acts of kindness extended to them during this time of their bereavement.
