March 19, 1937 - April 26, 2020
Carmelite Placide AKA " Madan Pye" passed away and entered eternal rest with the Lord on April 26 2020 at Stamford Hospital from complications due to coronavirus. She was born on March 19 1937 in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. She was the first of two children born to Hermite Augustin and Rippert Placide. Tragically, Hermite Augustin died when the two siblings Carmelite and Beliotte AKA "Uncle Beb" were very young. Fortunately for the two, their beloved paternal grandmother who was a very strong woman took them under her wings and raised them together. The two remained very close to each other until the end. Carmelite grew up to be a well- respected member of her community. During her youthful days, she participated in several plays and music/dance contests at the prestigious Theatre du Verdure in Port-au-Prince. She was also the Girl Scouts' Captain. As she got a little older, she became an excellent professional tailoress and fashion designer. She was also an entrepreneur and a business woman. Later on, in life, she moved to America where she worked as a Lab technician for Estee Lauder at Jericho Laboratories Inc. Built like an Amazon, she was known as a devoted and protected mother who successfully raised her children. She was also a mother figure to her dear nephew and her nieces, and to many others she crossed paths with. She was predeceased by her husband Horgard Pierre, her eldest son Anael Alerte and her stepson Erntz Pierre. She is survived by her five children, Marie P. Belfort, Horlna P. Charles, Holny P. Jean-Louis, Junior Pierre and his wife Sandra C. Pierre, Marjorie P. Butler and her husband Shakim Butler. Her grandchildren, Aliyah A. Rivera and family, Lorrie B.
