Special Olympics Seychelles – Death of chairperson Annette Domingue- Messages of sympathy and condolences from friends


Ms Domingue, who joined Special Olympics Seychelles in 1986 and was the organisation’s chairperson for a number of years, died on Monday after losing her battle with cancer.
She became a member of the Special Olympics African advisory council in 2008.

“On behalf of Special Olympics Mauritius we present our deepest sympathy to the bereaved family. We will all miss the presence of Mrs Domingue forever.
“We pray God for her soul to rest in peace. May God bless her family and Special Olympics Seychelles.
“We present our sympathy to her family and Special Olympics Seychelles.”

Mr Choytun
National Director
Special Olympics Mauritius and team


“This is very sad for the Special Olympics Family in the region and even more painful to Special Olympics Seychelles. We will keep you all in prayer as you go through this very painful moment.
“Please convey our condolences to the athletes and the entire Special Olympics Seychelles community.”

Joe Mutua
Regional Officer for Special Olympics of Eastern African


“So sorry to learn of Annette's passing on. May God rest her soul in eternal bliss and comfort her family for the sad loss.
“Our prayers go out to her family and her work on behalf of the athletes will forever be cherished and appreciated by all of us.”

Dr John Dow, Jr.
Chief of Regional Growth
President & Managing Director, Special Olympics Africa


“We at Special Olympics Malawi are deeply saddened by the passing on of our dear mother, sister, and friend in the movement. We will always treasure the precious moments we spent together.
“Our heartfelt condolences should also go to Special Olympics Seychelles and the family for their loss.
“May her soul rest in peace.”

Peter O. Mazunda
Board chairman
Special Olympics Malawi

“I would like to express my sincere condolences and heartfelt sympathy on behalf of Special Olympics Namibia and on my own behalf on the untimely death of this Special Olympics pillar in Seychelles and ALP member who regrettably fell. On the flip-side though, she has completed her race and has covered huge acres of land in the Seychelles in planting the Special Olympics seed to grow and be harvested beyond her call of duty. She has without a doubt followed the shining example and legacy left behind be Eunice Kennedy Shriver. I am sure the late Annette Domingue has joined Eunice Kennedy Shriver where they are looking down on us and smiling at the good work done by Dr Dow, the Africa staff and all programmes.
“May her soul rest in eternal peace.”
Cassius T. Moetie


“Special Olympics Mauritius joins with so many Special Olympics families who knew Annette Domingue in offering our deepest sympathy on her passing.  We were both shocked and saddened to hear about the sudden disappearance of the Seychelles Special Olympics legend.  After the death of Jose, Annette Domingue is the second loss of Special Olympics Africa.

“We are sure that she would want all of us to celebrate the good life that she had in the Special Olympics movement. We can all be thankful that we had her presence in our lives and continue to remember her as the great lady that she was.
“In Sympathy.”

Satyagan Choytun, National Director
On behalf of the Board Chair and members
Special Olympics Mauritius
