Ma Morah, one of  the oldest centenarians in Umuoji, who died at the age of 109, and popularly referred to as ‘Guy woman’ by her grandchildren was described as a great woman, peacemaker, jovial and hard-working person who believes in contentment and dignity of labour.

Commiserating with the family, the Umuoji Regent, Chief Nnaedu said: ” we are here to sympathise with Pastor Muorah, my in-law, who is burying his mother that was one of the oldest people in our community. I wish her family members such longevity”.

In an interview, Pastor Muorah said that despite the age at which his mother passed on, that he still missed her because of her calmness at the face of problems or challenges.

“I missed seeing her at the usual spot I used to see her anytime I visit the village. I thank God for her life. She taught me to pray with Psalm 109 vs 1-9. Three days before her death, I noticed her face was glowing and even teased her about it. People should not only wish to live long like my mother, but remember that after death, judgment follows” said Morah.

According to the eldest son, Mr Obibuenyi Morah, ” Mama taught us never to covet whatever that doesn’t belong to us. I thank God that she left paganism and embraced Christianity”.

Mama’s grandson,  Chimdindu Nnamdi, popularly called Alhaji Shearbutter, described Mama as “Guy woman” who believed in dignity of labour and hardwork during her lifetime.

Mrs Chinyelu Nnamdi, Mama’s daughter in-law, described her as an accommodating and peace loving woman, who took her daughters in-law as her own children.
