Anne Marie Boursiquot

May 6, 2022


Today we honor the life of my mom. She was truly an amazing woman who was the kindest and most caring person I’ve ever known. I am grateful to each of you for recognizing my mother as the wonderful woman she was. Thank you for taking the time to be here today. My mother Anne Marie Boursiquot was loved by so many. She was born on July 3, 1957 in Haiti La Vallee de Jacmel to parents Camelien Boursiquot and Viergelie St.Claire Boursiquot. She met the love of her life Jean Andre Royal in 1975, who later fathered their 5 children. She lived most of her adult life as a housewife and caregiver to her family. She later followed her passion by becoming an entrepreneur in women’s fashion. If you knew my mom, you knew how much she loved fashion, having her nails done, make up and getting dressed up. She valued education, sending her children to the finest schools and believed in working hard. She loved to have a good time, enjoyed music, and kept everyone laughing. She was a strong believer in her faith. My mother loved to share, always feeding others. You always had to eat when you came to my mom’s house, she made sure of it! She sacrificed more than I’ll ever know and even when she was putting everyone else before herself, she still made time to listen to all our problems. She dedicated her life to family and making sure we were supported in whatever we did and that we never felt anything other than loved. My mother kept her illness quite private. She never wanted to burden anyone with feeling like they had to take care of her, especially on her more challenging days. Her selflessness didn't just show up after she became sick but - she had been this way her whole life, putting others first and wanting to be her family and friends' rock. My mom was not perfect, she had her flaws. She was very stern and sometimes ruled with an iron fist. If you knew my mom, you would agree she never held back her tongue for anyone or anything, but her heart was always in the right place. Anne Marie is preceded in death by her beloved parents and nine siblings. She is survived by her lifelong companion Jean Andre Royal, her children Bernac Royal, Denise Royal, Andremene Royal, Felerson Royal, Sherley Royal, her four sisters, her seven grandchildren and many more extended family and friends. Everyone who was fortunate enough to know her was in awe of everything she achieved. The warmth and happiness she brought to us cannot be overstated. I loved her more than words could possibly say, and she will live on in my heart forever more.
