it is with great sorrow that Bakwerirama announces the death of Mrs. Kate Idowu nee Steane whom we profiled late last year. Family sources say that Auntie Kate as she was fondly called, died in Limbe, Cameroon, on the evening of January 2nd 2009. According to one of her grand nieces,
Auntie/Grandma was born in 1919 and would have been 90 years old in September but the Good Lord brought her into this year and took her away into his loving and peaceful arms. We thank him for a life well-lived, especially at the service of others... We are blessed with all the wonderful memories of our auntie/grandma and wherever your Auntie Kate’s cookery book is, dig it out in memory of her. May her soul rest in perfect peace.
Bakwerirama extends its heartfelt sympathies to the Steane, Endeley, Martin and Idowu families.
