Woy! Mona Guerin Mouri!!!
What better way to praise her, even in death, then to say... "Woy! Mona Guerin Mouri !!!" -- The title borrowed from the article released by Le Nouvelliste.
Mona Guerin is the mother of Anchorwoman and comedian Elizabeth Guerin, grandmother of NBC Miami news anchorwoman Christalie Parisot, both of whom have followed her foot steps in Media communication to say the least.
From "Woy! Les Voila!!!" all the way to The National Broadcasting Company (NBC), Mona is proof that, if you tell your 8 year old son or daughter "Yes You Can," and if you set a path for him or her to follow, you can expect great things to happen.
I never had the chance to meet this great woman but I've been enjoying the fruits of her labor since I was a little child growing up in Hinche Haiti.
Here is what Le Nouvelliste said about Mona upon her death...
[Mona Guerin died] as a result of pneumonia.... "She died at 77 years," her daughter Christina told the newspaper.
Author of the successful soap opera ""Woy! Les Voila!!!"" (950 episodes), numerous plays, newspaper articles and the famous column "Mi-figue mi-raisin" Within Le Nouvelliste, Mona Guerin died peacefully while his family believed she was out of danger.
Mona Guerin was a jack of all trades...
She started her first career as a teacher [and she accomplished so much...]
- 5 plays written between 1966 and 1976),
- radio (programming and soap operas on radio Nouveau Monde, Radio Metropole, Magik Stereo (now Magic 9) and Radio Soleil),
- television (150 sketches for the show Gala de galerie that aired on Tele Haiti),
- in newspapers and in his books (a collection of poetry and two collections of his stories),
She was very successful... During the last few years, Ms. Guerin had not been seen in public...
For those of you who know Mona Guerin personally, I would love to hear what you have to say about her and how you remember her.
My condolences to the Guerin Family, Especially to Elizabeth, a young lady I've learn to respect and appreciate over the past few years... Kenbe la sister... Kondolyeans...
