Kettly Sanon, 60, of Brooklyn, NY has been accepted into God's loving embrace on Friday, December 17, 2021, surrounded by her loved ones after 16 months of battling Triple Negative Breast Cancer. The last few months and weeks have been a complete blur and we do not understand why, it brings us so much peace that she is in heaven with my brother Jordan and my grandparents where there are no more tears, no more pain, no more tumors, and no more cancer.
She was born May 15, 1961, to Jean-Baptize Ulrick and Marie Carme-Jean Sanon.
My mother worked as a CRN nurse for H.D.A Care for 30 years. She was passionate about her job and made sure that her patients were taken care of and provided a loving environment before leaving her shift. Mom was involved in many organizations especially in church located at Brooklyn Pilgrim Wesleyan Church, where she was devoted to helping her community. “Kettly” known as “Ketket to those who were close to her, touched the lives of all who met her, with her genuine smile and generosity of always helping others, feeding everyone, she a giver especially to those in needs and loves to share whatever she has. She was affectionately, always embracing a sarcastic personality, firm, strong minded, but loving to her family and friends especially her grandchildren. She was a master cook in the kitchen and can throw down, having all begging for seconds. She enjoyed shopping exclusively at Macys and going on vacations.
Survivors include her three children, Wildzfor Balan, Katiuscia Penny, and Jordan Benoit who passed on July 10, 2008, who awaits her in heaven; granddaughters, Kayla Taylor, Cierra Penny, & Aubrey Penny; grandsons Justin Penny, Jordan Balan, sister Rolland Wilson, brother Frantz, Jean Robert and Jean Claude Sanon. Along with many nieces & nephews, as well as cousins, other relatives and friends whom will all miss her deeply.
We will never forget her tenacity, wit, charm, grace, and undying love and caring for her. My mother will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.
Revelation 21:4) He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”.
I know and trust God has been working on my mom’s story and His glory will continue to be revealed throughout the weeks, months, and years to come.
