Chimamanda Speaks About Her Mothers’ Death

Chimamanda finally speaks about her Mothers’ death on Instagram where she shares a heart warning Eulogy in honor of her late mother.

The award-winning author shared a post on her Instagram page on Wednesday, the 28th of April, 2021,  where she eulogized her late mother.

The Eulogy:

“How does a heartbreak twice? To still be immersed in grief, barely breathing again, and then to be plunged callously back into a sorrow you cannot even articulate,”

“How can my mother be gone forever, and so soon after my father? My warm, loving, funny, kind, quick-witted, beautiful mother. Unconditional supporter and cheerleader of her children, fun and funny, source of delicious sarcasm, style icon, so sharply observant she never missed a thing.” she wrote.

Narrating how her mother passed on, Chimamanda stated that Mrs. Grace Adichie, who was the first-ever female registrar of the University of Nigeria and also a permanent board member at Anambra State Basic Education Board (ASUBEB), went to work at ASUBEB in Awka on Friday, the 26th of February, 2021, but her personal assistant said she looked a bit tired.

According to Chimamanda, on Friday she was at work, in her ASUBEB office in Awka, but her lovely assistant whose name is  Mimi said she was looking more tired than usual. Despite how she was feeling, she went back home after work and even walked the half-mile to St. Paul’s Church for Stations of the Cross.”

She also stated, “On Saturday, she spent time in Louisa’s shop, outside the gate of our house in Abba, watching the cars and people on the dusty road. On Sunday, her driver drove her to Mass. Sunday evening she was unwell. She was taken to a private hospital in Awka.”

She revealed that just two hours after arriving at the teaching hospital where she was transferred, she was declared dead.

Chimamanda Adichie’s mother Mrs. Grace Ifeoma Adichie [LIB] is survived by her six children: IjeomaUchennaChuksOkechukwuChimamanda, and Kenechukwu. She also has nine grandchildren, in-laws, and many relatives.
