Antonine Weche was born to the parentage of the late Lexina and Mme. Cilia Vincent Weche on July 7, 1932 in Chadonette, the province of Jeremy, Haiti. In 1957, Antonine migrated to Port-au-Prince, Haiti in search of a better life. In 1967, she moved to Puerto Rico. In 1977, a new life began as our Heavenly Father guided Antonine into making the United States of America her permanent home. While living in New York for 32 years, Antonine
decided to relocate to Florida in 2009 to be with her family.
As a loving and caring woman, Antonine pledged her love unconditionally in Holy Matrimony to the love of her life, the late Roland Lafleur. The Lord blessed Antonine with 6 children, in whom 3 deceased. Antonine was a hard working wife and mother who strived to succeed and who cared deeply for her husband and all of her children. She loved her family and her family loved and cherished her in return. She instilled the highest level of morals and values into her children who will undoubtedly pass on the same teachings to their children as part of her legacy. She made sure her children knew God first, their Haitian culture and the will to serve. They will always remember her as the devoted mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend that she was.
