TRANSITION OF MAMA MARY LIENGU NAJEME (1917 - 2016)

TRANSITION
MAMA MARY LIENGU NAJEME
(1917-2016)


IT'S BEEN SIX MONTHS SINCE OUR MOTHER, GRANDMOTHER AND GREAT
GRANDMOTHER MAMA MARY LIENGU NAJEME PASSED ON TO GLORY,
TO BE WITH OUR LORD.
MAMA WAS BORN IN THE YEAR 1917 IN BUEA, CAMEROON, TO PA IKOMI
NJOMBE EKO AND MA HANNAH ETONDI EKO. SHE GREW UP IN BUEA WITH
HER PARENTS AND AT THE AGE OF NINE, SHE WAS ENROLLED IN THE
DOUALA SCHOOL. APART FROM HER LANGUAGE CLASSES, SHE TOOK HER
BIBLE STUDIES SERIOUSLY. SHE WAS INTERESTED IN DOMESTIC SCIENCE, SO
SHE TRAINED TO BE A SEAMSTRESS, AMONGST OTHER THINGS. SHE WAS ALSO
INTERESTED IN FARMING AND CULTIVATED VARIOUS CROPS. IN 1934 SHE
GOT MARRIED TO PAPA HANS EKEMA NAJEME (OF BLESSED MEMORY). THEY
WERE BLESSED WITH THE BIRTH OF THEIR FIRST CHILD DAVID WOTEVE
EKEMA NAJEME, IN JUNE1935 (OF BLESSED MEMORY). THERE AFTER, OVER
THE YEARS, NINE OTHER CHILDREN BROUGHT JOY TO THEM.


MAMA'S FAITH WAS STRONG. AS A DEVOUT CHRISTIAN, SHE BELEIVED IN
THE TEACHINGS OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST AND TAUGHT US OF GOD'S LOVE
AND FORGIVENESS. SHE REMINDED US TIME AND AGAIN TO DEVELOP THE
SPIRIT OF SHARING. HER KINDNESS, HER LOVE AND COMMITMENT WAS
EXTENDED TO EVERYBODY, FAMILY, FRIENDS AND STRANGERS ALIKE. MAMA
WAS A BIG GIFT TO US.


MAMA MARY LIENGU NAJEME (ALIAS MAMA/MBAMBA SNACK BAR) WAS
CALLED HOME ON THE 11TH OF JUNE 2016 AND LAID TO REST ON THE 19TH
OF AUGUST 2016 IN OXFORD, ENGLAND IN THE SAME PLOT AS HER FIRST
DAUGHTER LATE MRS EMMA EWOKOLO GWAN-NULLA.
SHE LEAVES BEHIND NINETY ONE OF US(CHILDREN, GRAND CHILDREN AND
GREAT GRANDCHILDREN) AND A HOST OF RELATIVES.
A MEMORABLE AND FULFILLED LIFE INDEED, SPENT DURING HER NINETY
NINE YEARS IN THIS WORLD. EVER MISSED, EVER SO FRESH IN OUR HEARTS.
MAY HER SWEET GENTLE SOUL REST IN PERFECT PEACE.


WE THANK GOD FOR HER LIFE.
GOD'S BLESSINGS!!!
