Family members, friends said adieu to Haitian-American Marie Joseph who found premature death in Fall River swimming pool

By Yves A. Isidor, Wehaitians.com, executive editor

FALL RIVER, MA, Jul. 12 - Marie Joseph, aged 36, the Haitian-American woman who is no longer with us, after her lifeless decomposed body was found in a swimming pool about two weeks ago in the Massachusetts southeastern blue-collar, mid-size city of Fall River, and more than two days after she was sent to the dark embrace of death, a private funeral was held for her today at the Silvia-Faria Funeral Home, situated in the city she moved to, long after departing her native Haiti, in the hope of finding a better life but later unfortunately found premature death.

Ms. Joseph's remains, according to a family member who spoke to Wehaitias.com on the customary condition of anonimity, were then transported to Brockton, where they were buried in a cemetery alongside those of her mother.

'So much of a nice person Marie was," one of her friends also present for the unfortunate circumstance told Wehaitians.com, in Spanish, while tears coming out of her eyes, "we will always honor her soul and celebrate her spirit." 

"Que dios la bendiga or may God bless her," another friend loudly said, in the Spanish language, as the short service was coming to an end.
