Mrs. Jeanine Bernadel Obituary

JEANINE DORVILY BERNADEL WAS BORN TO MENIE AND ROBERT DORVILY ON DECEMBER 31, 1946 IN BAINET, HAITI. SHE WAS THE 7TH OUT OF 8 CHILDREN AND WAS MOST CLOSEST TO HER SISTERS MARIE FREDERIQUE AND GERINA DORVILY AS WELL AS HER COUSIN CAMITA JOURDAIN. SHE MARRIED ADMIRA BERNADEL ON OCTOBER 16, 1968 AND IMMIGRATED TO THE UNITED STATES. TWO YEARS LATER, ADMIRA WAS ABLE TO ACQUIRE A VISA AND JOINED JEANINE TO START THEIR NEW LIVES IN EVANSTON, ILLINOIS TOGETHER. JEANINE HAD TWO CHILDREN, PAULE AND WILLS, BUT HER GENEROSITY, AND KIND HEARTEDNESS MADE HER A MOTHER TO MANY OTHERS.

SHE DEVELOPED A LOVE OF CINEMA EARLY IN LIFE AFTER ADMIRA TOOK HER TO SEE THE FRENCH-ITALIAN MELODRAMA LE FILS DE PERSONNE (1951). SHE ALSO ENJOYED THEATER AND TV PROGRAMS THROUGHOUT HER LIFE. ALTHOUGH SHE WAS QUIET AND SHY, SHE LOVED DRESSING UP AND ATTENDING PARTIES BUT MOST OF ALL, SHE CARED DEEPLY FOR HER FAMILY AND ENJOYED SPENDING TIME WITH, THEM AND CLOSE FRIENDS. ALTHOUGH SHE ENJOYED COOKING AND RARELY ATE OUT AT RESTAURANTS, SHE LOVED THE OCCASIONAL TREAT, ESPECIALLY CHICKEN NUGGETS, STRAWBERRY SHAKES OR HER FAVORITE DESSERT, CHEESECAKE.

JEANINE IS SURVIVED BY HER HUSBAND, ADMIRA BERNADEL. HER CHILDREN PAULE AND WILLS BERNADEL. HER SISTER MARIE FREDERIQUE, HER COUSIN CAMITA JOURDAIN, HER BONUS DAUGHTERS YANITZA BERNADEL AND RAYA GUPTA AS WELL AS OTHER FAMILY AND FRIENDS WHO WILL MISS HER WARM LOVING SPIRIT. PLEASE KEEP THE FAMILY IN YOUR PRAYERS.
