Marguerite Nicaisse, affectionately known as "Margot", passed away on April 6, 2023 at the age of 77. She was born on July 26th 1945, in the seaside town of Jacmel, Haiti, as the second eldest child to Myriam and Camillius Nicaisse.
In the 1980s, she immigrated to the United States and made Miami, FL, her home, where she became a fixture in the community and a comforting presence for family and friends. As the matriarch, her home was always full of family and laughter, and her doors were forever open.
Margot took her education seriously and received a degree in Medical Laboratory Science from Miami Dade Medical Center, followed by a bachelor's degree in Biology from Barry University. She became the chairwoman of the Medical Laboratory Science department at Miami Dade College, never losing her passion for learning. She was a master of texting and YouTube in her later years, which she used to keep up with her beloved grandchildren.
Margot had a sweet tooth for chocolate and loved to travel back to Haiti, a place close to her heart. She enjoyed watching Shirley Temple and detective movies like Columbo, Murder She Wrote, Perry Mason, and Kung-Fu movies. She collected all the Disney movies for her grandchildren and an extensive collection of romance novels. She also loved listening to French ballads and was always found wearing her signature gold earrings and henna dyed hair.
Margot was a devout Catholic who spread God's gift of reassurance and peace to all she came across. She had an unparalleled memory, which she passed on to her oldest grandchild Isabelle, and made sure to send personalized cards and messages for every family birthday and holiday.
Margot is survived by her children, Camille and Creg; son-in-law Ronald; daughter-in-law Jackie; seven grandchildren: Isabelle, Nathalie, Anaiise, Anya, Caden, Creg Jr, Noah; great granddaughter Amelie Celine with another great granddaughter due in July; three sisters: Delourdes, Nicolle, Antoinette; three brothers: Yvon, Michel, Betonus, and countless nieces and nephews.
Margot's warmth, love, and generosity will be deeply missed by all who knew her. May she rest in peace, knowing that her legacy lives on in the many lives she touched.
