Cherlie was born in 1989. She started her elementary studies in l’Azile and at the age of 11, she moved to St Marteen, where she completed middle school and high school. Shortly after her graduation, she got hired as a Bank teller in St Marteen. In 2010, she decided to move to Miami, and later to Orlando where she joined the First Haitian Baptist Church of Orlando in 2011. In 2012, she met Johnny Ilceus, the father of her daughter Ashley. Cherlie sacrificed herself to make sure her daughter was well taken care of. Cherlie was truly loved. We know that she would not want to see any of us crying; that is why, we keep her angelic and contagious smile in our memories. Cherlie has gone now to her Savior, for she loved the Lord with all her heart, mind and soul, but Cherlie will never be forgotten.
The family will be receiving friends on Thursday, September 23, 2021 from at 9:00 am, followed by the funeral service at 10:00 am at the First Haitian Baptist Church of Orlando, located at 4701 Lennox Boulevard.

Born on December 31, 1935, in Bastrop, Louisiana to Sam Sylvester Sr and Minerva Iles Allgood. The youngest and only daughter of four children, the family moved to Lake Charles where Janet lived until she met a young (however, eight years her senior) Air Force officer, Sam Hartman. The two wed on June 1, 1957. They remained happily married for forty-seven years until Sam’s passing in 2004.
A teacher by profession, she taught at Goldsboro Elementary School in Sanford, Fl She was most happy at home and her church. Janet was a lover of the Lord Jesus Christ and people, with a particular bias toward her family (with an even more particular bias toward her grandchildren). To walk in her door was to become family. One was rarely around Janet when food was not involved. A meal usually meant an opportunity to serve and fellowship with those she cared so much for.
An ardent fan of the Florida Gators and Atlanta Braves, Janet never missed her sons’ sporting events.
A member of Forest City First Baptist Church for over 45 years, she taught a woman’s bible study for most of that time.
Along with her husband, Janet was preceded in death by her parents, three brothers (Glen, Frank, and Sam Jr), a daughter who was stillborn, and grandson, Jonathan.
Survivors include three sons, Lee (Angela), Steve (Sue), and Billy (Kim). Grandchildren, Jessica (Jason), Amanda (Jess), Sarah (Richard), Kelsey (Jeremy) and their mother Melissa. Other grandchildren, Kara (Josh), Quinn, Karla (Chris), Alaric, Katie (Matt), Sam, and Amelia, and seventeen great-grandchildren.
Services will Tuesday, September 21, at Forest City First Baptist Church with visitation at 9:00 followed by funeral service at 10:00. Burial will be at Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell, Fl at 1:30. Reverend Matt Groce will officiate.

Lynda graduated from East Carolina University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. She was very proud of her service in the United States Navy; she was active 1978–1982, and remained in the reserves until 1993.
Lynda lived out her testimony by sharing the love of God with everyone she met through encouragement, prayer, and deeds. She was kind, selfless, and generous in all facets of her life. When someone would make the comment “Who knows?” Lynda would always answer, “God.”
Lynda enjoyed her diversified career from an upstart business in “offsite” administrative support (well before its time, such as working from home today) to HD Supply. She finished her career at First Baptist Church of Orlando (FBCO) children’s ministry. Her mission and outreach extended beyond any clock.
Lynda worshipped as a member at FBCO for more than 40 years and enjoyed serving on the creative arts stage management team, where she brought balance and peace to any situation. In the past few years she was introduced to Matthew’s Hope, a local homeless ministry, where she served in any area needed, always wanting to know people’s stories, from guests to staff members. Lynda preferred being behind the scenes, and she called herself an elf.
Those who had the privilege of knowing Lynda found her a loyal friend. She was smart, funny, and joyfully dedicated to serving others. Her love for the word of God and turning any situation “spiritual, never judgmental” was a gift that would leave those around her in awe. Lynda regularly handed out Bibles, and when she found a book that blessed her (most recently Threadbare Prayer), she bought copies in bulk to share. Her love for watermelon (which she called “birthday cake”) was well known to those who knew her. She walked through this life with outstretched arms and a gentle touch of grace, and even now she continues to bring people together.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, September 19, at First Baptist Church, 3000 S. John Young Parkway, Orlando, FL, 32805. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to First Baptist Orlando children’s ministry, 3200 John Young Parkway, Orlando, FL. 32805 or Matthew’s Hope, 611 Business Park Blvd #101, Winter Garden, FL, 34787.
