THEVENOT, Beatrice – Age 73, of Spring Valley, NY, passed away on Thursday, April 16th, 2020 in Suffern, NY. Born in Lèogâne, Haiti, she was the daughter of late Marie Yvonne Louis and Yves Cherubin.

Beatrice made the difficult decision to migrate to the United States of America from Haiti on December 6th, 1984 leaving behind her husband and four children (the youngest child was only 3 years old) in search of a better life for them. She was able to send for her husband one year later and then her four children a year after that.

Beatrice loved her family unconditionally and was heartbroken when her husband of 39 years, Marc Pierre Thevenot passed away on March 25th, 2012. Together, Marc Pierre and Beatrice raised their children, Joanne Placide (née Thevenot), Anne Marie Guirlaine Depaolo (née Thevenot), Pierre Thevenot, Michael Thevenot and stepson, Marc Thevenot. Beatrice is survived by her son-in-laws,Gaston Placide, Vincent DePaolo and daughter-in-laws, Esther Thevenot and Mirelle Thevenot. She was brought immense joy and happiness by her fourteen grand-children, Xavier Thevenot, Christian St. Felix, Sheadwige Doresty, Michael DePaolo, Christopher Depaolo, Iyana Thevenot, Peyton Thevenot, Isaiah Thevenot, Michael Thevenot, Mehki Thevenot, Mickayla Thevenot, Maliyah Thevenot, Marc-Elie Thevenot, Chani-Noemi Thevenot and great-grandson A’mouri Thevenot.

Beatrice worked for 19 years at Woodcliff Lake Manor Nursing Home in Montvale, NJ as a Housekeeper. Her passion and devotion was being a proud parishioner of St. Joseph Church in Spring Valley, NY where she was a member of Groupe de la Louange. She was not only a member of the choir, but her devout Catholicism brought her dedication to helping the church in many, many ways. She would cook and bake for the church and gave rides to anyone in need. She took great pride in her appearance and would take as much time as she could to look her best. Beatrice had an open door policy, if you needed a place to eat, sleep and relax her door was always open. She found satisfaction with the smiles on her children, grandchildren and great-grandchild’s faces. She was deeply in love with her family and everyone coming together to celebrate each other’s company. Beatrice Thevenot was an angel on earth. She took feed thy neighbor to a different level. She risked her marriage at times to feed the hungry, house the homeless and clothe the poor. She held first communions, confirmations, weddings, graduation parties, baked cakes and always made sure to celebrate everyone. Her life is celebrated today with all the hearts that she has touched throughout the years. There isn’t one person whose path she crossed that she couldn’t find a way to help.

In addition to her immediate family, she is survived by her siblings, Fritz Cherubin, Mona Cherubin, Yanick Cherubin, MarieMarthe Cherubin, Yvette Cherubin, Yvrose Ledain and many cousins, nieces and nephews. She was truly loved and adored and will be greatly missed by all her family, friends and adopted children.

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic a proper Catholic funeral service is being withheld. The immediate family will be conducting a small, private service among themselves. A Catholic Memorial Mass and Celebration of Life Service will be scheduled at a later date. We apologize for the unfortunate situation, but we are praying and thinking about everyone’s safety and well-being at this time.

When I was a baby my mom got stuck in Haiti for over a year during that time my dad was working a lot, so I spent that year with my Aunt Beatrice Thevenot. I was little and could barely say Aunt Beatrice, so I came up with the name Mama Bea. She was my everything. I remember her bathing me in the sink in the bathroom and laughing. She used to always make me red beans and rice which became my favorite dish. I remember sitting on the kitchen table with her as she baked cakes for the countless amount of people that came around. I was with her everywhere she went supermarket, shopping and especially church. You would find me sitting directly next to her, people would assume I was her daughter. When my mother was finally able to return, I would beg to go to Mama Bea’s house. She was my everything, I was obsessed with my other mom. When her husband, my TonTon Pierre passed away, I spent a couple nights with her, sleeping right next to her cuddling her. She is one of the only people in the entire world I allow to call me Sophie. The pain that I feel today is entirely unbearable, it pains me to think that you passed away alone and without family holding your hand. I am happy that I was blessed to be with you before the lock down and I put a smile on your face for your birthday with a bouquet of flowers. I don’t like that I will not be there to see you off, but God knows you are kissing the love of your life and my mommy is running over to you and hugging you tight. Thank you for giving me my cousin and best friend, Anne Marie Guirlaine DePaolo and my beautiful and wonderful cousins, Marie J Thevenot, Pierre Thevenot and Michael Thevenot. I miss you and I love you so much! You are the most wonderful mother God could have given me. Sleep in Peace Mama Bea!

Mrs.Thevenot always treated me like a daughter and loved my son ( her grandson ) Mike unconditionally. I was always welcomed in her home and treated like family, I loved her for that. She was very speical to me due to the fact of me being so young with a child and her providing any help necessary. I love Mrs.Thevont as a mother and appreciate everything she's done for me and my family. She was an amazing women and cared so much about everyone I respected her for that. She will always be a part of me 💖 sleep in peace.

My mother Beatrice Thevenot aka manman bebe was the matriarch of our family. She was loved and respected by many, she was everyone mother. My friends and my siblings friends became her children too and they love her like she their mother. If they were homeless or hungry, she would take them in. My mother didn’t have much but she was the most generous person I know. She was my best friend and will forever love her🌹❤️🌹
