- About Us
Marie Rose Annette Dormevil, also known as Sister Marie, 75 of Norwalk/Bridgeport, entered eternal life on May 31, 2018 at 12:10AM at St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport. Born in Haiti, the daughter of the late Gustave and Angelique Louis-Charles Dormevil, she worked as a teacher before moving to the United States. Once in America, she strove to secure her family in the U.S. A strong woman of great faith, she chose to focus on the needs and well-being of others rather than herself. After settling in Norwalk, CT in 1972, she worked for Translux Corporation, Norden Systems, and Bridgeport Manor. While in and out of sickness she decided to pursue her passion as a social worker after working incredibly hard to receive an Associate Degree at the age of 66., where she found fulfillment in bringing God’s abundant love to everyone she met. She was active with Bible study and her church, helped start the Haitian Community Mass at St. Joseph’s and the Charismatic Prayer Group in Norwalk. Her tireless effort and devotion made her the natural family matriarch, as well as second mother to many.
One of 16, Marie Rose is survived by one uncle (Saintoine Louis Charles) and her siblings; Francois (Edda), Romaine, Jean-Cesaire, Raphael, twin sisters, Catherine & Marie Lucie, Fernande, Guy, Rose Angelique, Adele (Christmond), Marie France (Patrick), Blaise and Magdala, and many loving nieces and nephews; Francois Jr, Ralph, Romelle, Johnny, Freddy, Reginald Cesaire, Chistopher, Fedler, Monica, Kathleen, Marc Eric, Phillipe, Robenson, Christie, Gregory, Guyvensky, Guylendy, David, Andrick, Starah, Alex, Felix, Elshamma, Joshmael and Abishaelle, as well as a host of cousins, Godchildren, and in-laws of the Dormevil, Thomas, Conserve, Saint Lot, Pierre, Etienne, Louis-Charles, Constant, Bernadel, Lerebours, Ais, Regis, Bien-Aime, Jeudy, Ambroise, Dorce families.
