Josiane Hamel Obituary


Josiane was born on June 24th, 1961 in Gonaives, Haiti to Jeanne Luxana and Pastor Moise Beauvilaire. In her younger years she grew up in New York State. On June 28th, 1986 Josiane married her husband Charles Hamel. 

Josiane is survived by the four of her children. Charlene Louis, Joseph Hamel, Nathaniel Hamel, and Xavier Hamel. Her 8 grandchildren, Ariana Louis, Amiel Louis, Josiane Louis, Jacqui Louis, Bensen Louis, Riley Hamel, Zyla Hamel and Shai Hamel. Her father Pastor Moise Beauvilaire, brothers Ulrick Beauvilaire, Ezekiel Beauvilaire, and Jean Beauvilet. Her sisters Marie Duroseau and Rebecca Beauvilaire. As well as many other relatives and friends. 

This family, and her role as mother and grandmother, was the most important thing to Josie. This is where she drew her strength and left her legacy. Being with her family was what Josie enjoyed most of all. Her life had many obstacles, and she struggled with illness after illness. Yet through it all, her love and caring for her family remained her focus, and in so many, many ways, she was able to show that love to us. This perseverance through adversity is a powerful lesson for us, and we believe it is her legacy. What a wonderful lesson she gave us. Keep your priorities straight. Keep that which is most important in focus. Love and care for your family. Let them know in all the ways you can show them that you love them. Don’t let adversities or setbacks or any of the distractions of the world keep you from this most important aspect of life.

But through everything Mom went through, she managed to keep her priorities straight. What can be more important than loving and showing your love for your family? How can some of us who are blessed with so much forget to be thankful to God, while somehow Mom kept her faith through all of her trials.

This is a wonderful legacy. This is a wonderful example to follow. Keep focused on what is truly important, not only when your life is easy, but when it is difficult too.
