On Sunday, April 4, 2021 Clemence Caïdor,99, peacefully passed away in her home in Providence, Rhode Island.
Clemence Caïdor was born on Wednesday, October 11, 1922, in Jeremie, Haiti. She was the daughter of Carelis Caïdor and Irena Renal. She completed her educational studies in Haiti then entered the workforce as an independent business owner in Port-au-Prince, Haiti's capital marketplace, where she sold various products to local and foreign businesses. Clemence was married to the late Jonathan Joseph then soon became a widow soon after her children's birth.
They had five children with four surviving: Michelet, Marie, Jetta (passed away at an early age), Leresse, and Flaurenne. Working as a single mother and maintaining the household, Clemence exhorted her faith in Christ by becoming involved in her local churches in Haiti, servicing the leaders, and singing in the choir. She was a devout Christian woman who dedicated her life to Christ and ministered to women and families in similar circumstances. She was well revered in her hometown.
Clemence retired from the business and trading industry after working 50 years and decided to move to the United States in 2010 at age 88, with the desire to be reunited with her daughter, Leresse and grandchildren. She then became an active member at the Christian Assembly Church of God by Faith and devoutly attended every Service. Though she remembered her life, family, and friends in Haiti, she expressed gratitude and enjoyment living in the United States and adopting American culture.
Clemence Caïdor was a well-respected woman of God who loved meeting new people and spending time with her grandchildren and children in her neighborhoods (Haiti and the United States). She enjoyed singing, playing with her grandchildren, reading poems, public speaking, and staying active.
She is survived by her four children, 18 grandchildren, and ten great-grandchildren. Clemence will be deeply missed by her friends, family, and all who knew her.
