’Elizabeth Ofuchinyelu Ndibe (best known by her praise name, Ngala), an extraordinary mother to five biological children and a multitude of others, a passionate teacher, and woman of faith, has today gone to her Maker. She celebrated her 93rd birthday on April 18. Ngala and my father modeled for their children and many admirers the deepest example and meaning of love. Before her death, she counseled us to celebrate her life and to follow the legacy she and our late father bequeathed to us. Please join my siblings and me in praying for her eternal rest.’
