The following obituary is from Donnellan Family Funeral Services:

Marianne Policape, age 90, of Evanston, IL. Loving mother of Maurice Chavannes and Dr. Jean-Baptiste Chavannes. Loving mother-in-law of Sarry Julien Chavannes. Dear grandmother of Fabrice, Sébastien, Christelle and Luigi-Maurice Chavannes. Loving sister of Adrienne and Philippe Policape, and sister-in-law of Elizabeth, née Lauture. Loving aunt to many nieces and nephews, caretaker to many members of the immediate and close family members, and dear friend to many. 

She moved to Evanston, IL in 1992 and dedicated herself to providing love and guidance to her children and helping raise her grandchildren. She courageously fought kidney failure and other illnesses for over eight years, during which she defiantly cheated death on several occasions so she could be here on earth to pursue her devotion to providing care and love to her children, grandchildren, and anyone who had the privilege of crossing her path. After a long fought battle with bad health, she peacefully and lovingly went home to GOD on Friday May 9th at 2:24PM surrounded by her children and her sister. She is dearly missed by all.
