Monique Anicet-Abraham entered into eternal rest peacefully on August 28, 2021. Born in Haiti, on June 23, 1963, Monique immigrated with her family to the United States in 1979 and has since resided in Bayonne. She was employed at Holy Family Nursing Home in Brooklyn, NY as a nurse’s aide, a position she proudly held for many years.
Monique appreciated the beauty of nature and the outdoors where she found peace and tranquility while maintaining her beautiful garden of plants and flowers. In her free time, she enjoyed the challenge of playing all types of casino games on her cell phone while trying to beat the odds of winning.
Known for her exceptional cooking skills, Monique took great pleasure in hosting countless holidays and parties where she always welcomed everyone into her home with open arms. She loved fashion and dressed with an impeccable sense of style and grace that was admired by many.
Above all else, Monique’s family came first and foremost in her life. She always expressed how special and loved they were as well as guide them in a positive direction and show never-ending support. As grandchildren came along, they softened her heart even more and she took extreme joy in spoiling each one of them every chance she could.
Despite her beauty, talent, and accomplishments in life, Monique was a selfless woman who showed compassion and genuine kindness towards others. She was everyone’s friend, and never met a stranger. She lived her life guided by a well-defined set of morals, values, and beliefs that she made a point of instilling in her family as well.
Left to cherish her memory are her husband, Ramses Abraham, daughter, Natasha Bigord, sons, Nyrls Bigord and his wife Sandra, and Nyrlson Bigord and his wife Brenda, sisters, Barcelona Berrouette and Laura Anicet, brothers, Dwight Vivien, Jackson Samady, Thierry Anicet, her seven adored grandchildren, and her loyal canine Japanese Akita, Hazz, with whom she shared the same birthday.
Monique was predeceased by her parents, Lhrreson Anicet and Simone “Bernedette” Anicet, her sister Vivian Samady and her brother Marc Andre Anicet.
A visitation will be held at the Dworzanski & Son Funeral Home on Friday, September 10, 2021, from 5:00 t0 9:00 pm. A funeral mass in Monique’s honor will be offered Saturday, September 11, at 10:30 am, from the Parish of St. John Paul II at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church, officiated by Fr. Lukasz Kleczka. Entombment will follow at Holy Name Cemetery Mausoleum in Jersey City. (There will be no visitation on Saturday morning. Everyone is asked to go directly to church.)
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.
He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for you are with me;
Your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
And I shall dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
