The death has been announced of Mrs. Priscilla John Nwendze who passed on to glory on 4th January, 2017 at the Taraba State Specialist Hospital Jalingo, after a brief illness.
Narrating the sad incidence to taravoices at his residence in Jalingo, the husband of the deceased and Founder, Jesus Alive Eternal Assembly Jalingo, Bishop John Nwendze described his wife as ‘wonderful, loving, a woman of sacrifice as well as committed to the Lord Jesus while on earth’.
According to him, he is consoled by the fact that, she is resting with the Lord because, “shortly before she gave up, she sang three songs with her daughter, smiled and gave up the ghost”.
Also speaking, the deceased’s daughter, Mrs. Eunice Kulochang in her tribute to her mother said, “Mummy was a loving and caring mother who was willing to sacrifice her life for me while giving birth to me, by not allowing anesthesia during CS.
“ Before she took her last breath, she said, I have taught you almost everything, what else do you want from me. She has affected my life greatly and left a huge vacuum, my mother, my friend, my confidant, I love you, rest in peace,” she added.
The son-in-law to the deceased, Pst. Kulochang Njiwah who described her as “fearless, bold, industrious, truthful, caring and fun to be with” said in his tribute to her, “ she was a wonderful woman. When I asked for her daughter’s hand in marriage, she asked me a question. She said she hopes when she comes to our house after marriage as a visitor, I will not send her away because, this is her only daughter, both male and female.
“She wanted me to promise her not to deprive her of her only daughter. I will surely miss her, we all will, but mummy as believers, we shall join you at the feet of the Lord. Adieu!” he said.
