Eneya Leon

Obituary of Eneya Leon

Born in a small town in St. Jean, Haiti on June 28th, 1928, Eneya began her journey through life. Eneya was the second child of Clergilia Clerge and Cheritom Dorce. Eneya, was dedicated to her family. She met and married Thelas Leon in 1945 where they worked hard to provide for their nine children.   

Eneya worked as a businesswoman in the market where she collected goods to sell at the local market. After her husband Thelas passed away in 1970, she worked even harder by bringing her market items to church. She did everything to raise her children with love, she was a hardworking woman and full of energy,


In 1995, she moved to the States, where she lived with her daughter Mamotte Neuvieme and son in law Jean Neuvieme. The kind of love Eneya had for all her children was without condition. She may not have approved of everything we did, may not have liked some of the decisions we made, but she didn’t judge. She just kept loving us, letting us know that she was there and if we ever needed her, we could count on her to listen, to comfort and to help.


She worked hard when she came to the States babysitting kids at the church for a small fee. She saved every dollar she made, saving to apply for visa for the other children she left in Haiti. She lived a simple life. It didn’t take much to make her happy, a phone call or a visit. We were the most important people in the world to her. She lived to make our lives better and was proud of us.


Eneya attended Laurel Gospel Assembly under the leadership of Raphael Noisin where she gave her life to Christ and became a vital part of the assembly. Everyone in the church loved her and called her Nenenn, she was best known for wearing her stylish hats and being well dressed, always wearing a beautiful smile, her favorite thing to do in after service was to pass out candy to everyone even adults. She was truly loving. 


Her favorite pass time was to watch wrestling, boxing, or what she called “LIT” She would be so loud where it would be heard from the basement rooms, her favorite characters was John Cena, Tripple H, Romane, Vilcent, Big Show. That was indeed her favorite thing to do. She used to bother us to come downstairs when the TV was messed up or she had misplaced the remote. 


On December 18th, 2020 grandma woke up with a severe pain that required a trip to the emergency room where she was diagnosed with kidney failure and began dialysis, after three treatments her body wasn’t responding to treatment and vital organs started to fail.
