In loving memory of Wilhelmina Oluwabunmi Nana who returned to her heavenly home on the 27th August 2019.
Mina a resident of Canning Town, East London, sadly passed unexpectedly at the age of 54 while at home. Mina is survived by her mother, uncles and aunts; her sons James and Yomi, her younger sisters and brothers, nieces and nephews and cousins.
Mina was born in London on April 27, 1965 to Wilson and Eunice Nana. She attended Iwade County Primary School in Sittingboune, Kent. Followed by secondary school in Nigeria at St Teresa’s College. She then went on to pursue professional qualifications in the culinary arts. She followed her passion and worked for over 30 years in the catering industry as a sous chef.
On March 15, 1988 and January 15, 1999 respectively, she welcomed her two beautiful sons, who were the most important part of her life.
Mina was a devoted Christian, a woman of faith who was immersed in the Christian community from a young age and involved in many church activities throughout her life. She enjoyed cooking, baking, knitting, tapestry, flower making, car boot sales and collectibles, reading, travel and music in particular gospel, Motown, soul and R & B, but most especially time spent with family and friends. Mina will be remembered by her kind and gentle spirit. She was loving and soft-spoken, and always had time to answer a question or solve a problem, no matter how small. She will be deeply missed by her family, friends and loved ones who celebrate the fact that she is at peace with her creator.
A Celebration of Life (funeral service) is scheduled for 23rd September 11:00 a.m. at Ascension Church Centre, Baxter Road, London E16 3HJ.
