Yolande Alexandre was born on June 06, 1947 in Milot, Haiti to the proud parents of Udes Alexandre Joseph and Etienna Time. She was one of many siblings. During her younger teenage years she was a volunteer at the Catholic Church working alongside the nuns. She also volunteered her time in her community hospital helping to provide medication to those who were sick. Even though her parents thought she was going to be a nun due to her involvement in church activities, her career choice in life was to pursue nursing to continue to help those in need in her community. In 1976 she found an opportunity to go to Nassau Bahamas to work, so she could help her parents and siblings back home. During her years there she met Luc Vixema. Together they became the proud parents to two great children, a son, Wilner Alexandre born April 1, 1978 and a daughter, Margaret Alexandre born July 19, 1979. Soon after she made her way to the United States wanting to provide her children a better life and to also be able to assist her family members back home.

She was a wonderful Mom, who placed her children first, providing them with all that they needed even though she was a single mom.
