Loved Mother, sister, and grandmother. Rose Huguette Joachim Fidele was born in Cap Haitian, Haiti on August 19, 1931. She was the eldest daughter of four girls born to the late Joseph Joachim and Antonia Oscar Joachim. During her childhood and throughout adulthood, being the eldest, she was considered the leader, which all her sisters looked up to. The four girls, in birth order (Huguette, dearly departed Jacqueline Therese Joachim, dearly departed Josette Joachim Larratte, and Jacqueline Madeline Joachim Casimir) were very close and did many activities together during their childhood that continued even as adults. They often traveled together to different countries and visited each other back and forth to Haiti. In December 1955, she married Rigaud Fidele and was blessed with two children: son Jean Fidele and daughter Kathleen Fidele. In 1970, she and Rigaud moved to New York looking for a better life and lived with her youngest sister Jacqueline and daughter Nancy. Huguette and Rigaud later moved their children to NY from Haiti to come to live with them. With the help of her sister, she found work in the International Department in Chase Manhattan Bank in NYC where she worked for many years until her retirement in 1987. After her divorce from Rigaud in 1972, she continued to live very close to her youngest sister Jacqueline and they raised their children together. In 1979, she and Jacqueline moved into their 2-family house in Hollis, Queens NY. That is when Huguette found her hobby and talent in gardening. She spent countless days and hours planting, weeding, and replanting many types of flowers and bushes. Her favorite flowers were roses which she cared for, watering and preening them so they can develop beautiful blooms every year. Her garden was so well kept and beautiful, that one year, she won the first-place prize for Best Garden that was offered by Incarnation Catholic Church. Huguette's other passion was sewing. She often spent her weekends, cutting patterns and sitting at the sewing machine in the basement of the house she shared with Jacqueline. Most of the clothing she wore was made by her own hands. Huguette, affectionately known as “Man Guette”, is survived by her sister Jacqueline Joachim Casimir; children Kathleen Fidele Loiseau and Jean Fidele, son-in-law Pierre Loiseau, grandchildren Dachka Fidele, Bryant Fidele, and Riana Fidele; nephew Lionel Larratte; nieces Nadine Larratte Belk and Nancy Casimir Fong; grand nieces and nephews Jalyn Robinson, Jastyn Robinson, Billy Belk, and Alain Larratte. Lionel's wife Kate Wilson and Nancy's husband Ronald Fong also survive her. Condolences also extended to Venise Joachim Denise and the Oscar family. Huguette lived a wonderful life, always surrounded by her family. Her resilience and strength were great role models for others as she always took initiative to get things done herself. She was not much of a talker but was an observer and gave her opinion whenever it was necessary. Even after her stroke and the limitations she had, you could still see her strength and resilience. She will be very much missed and is watching over all of us. Until We Meet Again ... Man Guette Arrangements by T.M. Ralph Plantation Funeral Home
