Gabrielle Haddad Hayoun, Gabrielle bat Miriam, mother of Sylvain Hayoun, passed away Friday December 21, 2018 in Vincennes, France. Sylvain and his two siblings, along with a sister, were in attendance. The funeral was held at Montmartre Sunday, December 23, and burial will be Monday December 24th at Pantin cemetary.
Sylvain said, “She has been an exceptional mother. The 3 kids, 9 grand kids and 5 great grand kids will honor and follow her Jewish values as well as her smiley and radiant way of loving life, loving people, with her positive strength.” Sylvain and his family fled from Tunisia to Paris in 1967 in the wake of the Six-Day War, after generations of residence in Tunis.
The Hayouns will hold a rememberance in Boulder after Sylvain returns from France.
