July 23, 1939 - March 1, 2020
Jeannine Gonel Auguste, age 80 of Irving Texas entered our Lord’s forgiving arm on Sunday March 1, 2020 surrounded by some of her children and grandchildren. She was born to the late Leon Gonel and Esperancia Narcisse on July 23, 1939.
Jeannine was raised in Haiti where she helped to take care of her siblings at a young age. She worked in Haiti for a short time. She was married to Gerard Auguste in 1960, and later had 6 children. She then migrated to New York in 1975 where she worked as a dedicated tailor in a New York Clothing Plant for 20 years and then retired in 1995. She enjoyed spending summers, holidays, and vacations with her family. She was very passionate about cooking and baking, especially around Thanksgiving. She loves spending quality time watching her favorite television shows, listening to music and dancing with her family. She had an unbelievable passion for basketball.
Despite her hectic schedule, family was Jeannine’s passion and delight. She devoted everything through love. She was the most kind-hearted person. The strength of our mother is second to none, even when she is in times of stress, when she is fighting with her own demons, when she is beyond exhausted both mentally and physically nothing will stop her from finding the strength that she needs to do for all.
Jeannine is survived by her siblings, 6 children (Yves of Boston, Chantal of Florida, Lesly of Texas, Carline of Florida, Martine of Texas, Danny of Texas) a host of grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
