Marie Marthe Gaston, was a retired healthcare worker, who resided in Valley Stream, NY. She died on the early morning of April 14, 2020 at the age of 76 at Northwell - Long Island Valley Stream Hospital due to complications of the Coronavirus.
Marie was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti on July 29, 1943 to Gesner Gaston and Marianna Durandisse. She is survived by her daughter, Fabiola Johnson, and her husband, her grandchildren Bryson and Laylah Johnson, her niece, Tania Louis-Freedman, and her nephew Patrick Louis.
Marie was a spiritual woman with a strong faith in our Lord. She enjoyed reading, cooking, and shopping. Marie also enjoyed travelling, in the recent years she travelled to Israel, and to most of the neighboring countries in the Caribbean.
She was a compassionate and caring soul that did not hesitate to help others in need. Her father, Gesner was a tailor and Marie was blessed with her father’s gifts, and in her own right she was a skilled seamstress and enjoyed making many beautiful items.
This will be her family’s first Mother’s Day without her. She left early morning, then softly came the dawn. Since we never said good-bye, it’s hard to believe she is gone. She left us weeping, lonely and with aching hearts. But we know she is no longer in pain and is at peace. And now the angels are keeping her where sweet joys will we’re depart and reunited with our loved ones.
Per Marie’s wishes she will be cremated, and part of her ashes will be returned to Haiti and buried with her mother Marianna, the remainder of her ashes will remain with her daughter in Myrtle Beach, SC. A memorial service will be held at a later date that is to be determined. Flowers, donations, and condolences may be offered at 3168 Bramble Glen Drive, Myrtle Beach SC, 29579.
