Edwina's service will be livestreamed below starting at 10:00 AM Friday, January 28, 2022:
https://vimeo.com/event/1774387 Edwina Nana Amoo, age 35, passed away on January 13th 2022 at Essentia Health-Fargo, North Dakota. Edwina was born on May 18th, 1986 in Takoradi to Mr. Aleviley Amoo and Mrs. Anita Amoo. She was the fourth of five children between her parents and spent her formative and adolescent years in Takoradi where both parents live. She attended Bethel Methodist Preparatory School, through to Junior High School and Sekondi College both in the Western Region of Ghana. Upon graduating Senior High School, Edwina attended Regent University College of Science and Technology, Accra, Ghana where she graduated with First Class Honours in BSc (Hons) Economics with Computing. She then went on to earn a Master of Science (MSc) degree in International Business Management from Maastricht School of Management in the Netherlands. Edwina was employed by Bollore African Logistics, Tema, Ghana where she worked as a Logistics Team Manager. She was blessed with three beautiful children - Ewuradjoa, Nana Akosua and Esi-Makeda. As a mother, she was always present and responsive to the needs of her children. She taught her kids the importance of Education and always encouraged them to do their best. Edwina is survived by her daughters Ewuradjoa, Nana Akosua and Esi Makeda: parents, Mr. Elevele Amoo and Mrs. Anita Amoo: siblings; Kwabena, Judith, Kabla, Sandra and Kaku: grandmother; Josephine Amoah. As the family mourns her passing, we take comfort in these words of Apostle Paul: What I am saying, dear brothers and sisters, is that our physical bodies cannot inherit the Kingdom of God. These dying bodies cannot inherit what will last forever. But let me reveal to you a wonderful secret. We will not all die, but we will all be transformed! It will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, those who have died will be raised to live forever. And we who are living will also be transformed. For our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies that will never die; our mortal bodies must be transformed into immortal bodies. Then, when our dying bodies have been transformed into bodies that will never die, this Scripture will be fulfilled: “Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power. But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:50-57. May your soul rest in perfect peace Edwina. You will be sorely missed. Da yie, Da yie, Da yie!!!

  1. Edwina my dear, words cannot express the way I feel. It was great to be your teacher and your mother eventually. I know you’re resting peacefully in your Heavenly Father’s bosom. You’ve left a great legacy in your three beautiful girls which we’ll until we also leave this earth.
    The Botse Micah family will miss you dearly. We love you and will forever cherish you ❤ 💛 💕

  2. I have known you to be a beautiful soul, a warrior who has won the battles of life. May you pass on into the glorious realm. We cry for you because you are irreplaceable and your good deeds speak loud. Journey home safely, dear! You are missed, great soul! All that I say is fare ye well: Christ, receive her into the golden mansion of your Father! Amen, So Mote It Be!
    From: Alfred KK Mcfield

  3. Oh my goodness,cannot believe you are gone.I called you again today hoping you will pick it so we continue from where we ended the chat the Thursday they took you to the hospital.Your death has given me a different perspective about life.What happeneds to all our plans,What happeneds to Esi and the girls.Nana how do you want them to survive this and even myself.Is hard,Is really really Hard.May God continue to rest your beautiful soul.Your soul sister Juliet Boateng.

  4. When I think of sister mummy, as we lovingly called her, this quote comes to mind.
    “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that frighten us”.
    This was sister mummy’s mantra. She was always encouraging me not to fear my potential but to embrace it, walk in it and use it to positively impact the lives of others. Ever since I can remember I have always looked up to sister mummy. She carried herself with humble confidence; she was independent, insightful, full of wit, intelligence, and wisdom.
    Sister mummy was also fun, playful, and adventurous. I will miss those nights when we watched telenovelas on metro TV together even though I was meant to be sleeping and when we used to sit in the kitchen and poke fun at our grandmother, Aunty Jo aka. blue Ski. Sister mummy had the habit of appearing from nowhere with a spoon, ready to “taste” your food. I remember how I would sulk and complain whenever she did this but now when I look back at those times, it makes me smile. It saddens me that we will not be able to take that trip to Paris we carefully planned. I know we would have had a good time climbing up the Eiffel tower, exploring the Elyss de champs and cruising on the river Seine.
    How does a family carry on without its heart and soul? I remember back in Taadi many years ago, although she was only 18, mama and dada never made a major decision without her input. At such a tender age, she became the rock of our family and that is why her death was and still is such a devasting blow.
    At this difficult time, I am comforted by the fact that you are with God now, no longer in pain and are watching over me, guiding me and cheering me on. I will never forget you and will forever hold you close to my heart. I will make sure that your little nephews; Sal, Shawn, Izzy, and Caleb know and revere their aunty, who was one of a kind,
    Rest, sister mummy, you did all you could. You fought tirelessly and bravely till the end. Rest and worry no more, Awuradjoa, Akos and Esi will be taken care of. I promise you that I will set a great example for them just as you did for me

  5. You were a breath of fresh air
    Smart, Jovial, affable and witty
    You were a high-flyer and a shining star
    Hardworking and full of enthusiasm
    You were always cheerful and full of life

    No farewell words were spoken
    No time to say goodbye
    What it meant to lose you
    No one will ever know
    You were gone before we knew it
    And only God knows why

    You’ll never be forgotten
    We pledge to you today
    A hallowed place within our hearts
    Is where you’ll always be
    May the good Lord grant you eternal rest

    Da yie!

  6. Edwina Dear, Beautiful inside and out. We’re bewildered by to us your untimely exit, we have wailed and moaned for many reasons as friends and family because this is a huge loss. But we’re not crying because we fill burdened, we know you believe in God hence only asleep and a Good Angel now. We take consolation in this to thank God for your life and appreciate you as a gift to us. We pray for God’s guidance to be loving Mums, Aunties and family at large to your wonderful kids. What a blessing to have a piece 💖 of you with us through them, we say it is well, rest well friend, rest well Sister and rest well Mum.

  7. You’ll always be loved and remembered my sister and best friend. This news has come to me as a shock but I know without a doubt that you’re with Jesus. Thank you for being a best friend friend to me. Your sons keep asking when we will visit aunty Edwina! It is heartbreaking for me to hear them say your name and knowing you’re gone. Onso it is hard but I have to accept this as it is. Da yie me nua.

  8. Edwin, as I affectionately called you, you left us without saying goodbye. When I told Nana and the family of your passing they were like OMG when, why, how? Questions, questions only God can answer. May you finally find comfort in the bosom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. RIP Edwina. Forever in our Hearts♥️

  9. Little as we affectionately called you, indeed your sudden demise is a big blow to the family and us all.
    Rest well mommy.

  10. Our last meeting was at the meridian hospital Tema, I can still hear your laughter!😢. We discussed business last year and were keen on entering the digital world. I can’t believe you are gone Edi, rest well my Sister. Let the angels welcome you home 🏡 ❤ 💕
    Rest in perfect peace

  11. Onso, as I often called and teased her and she will respond errhh Mr. Gyami. I am still in shock and disbelief that you are no longer with us in the physical. It was just a few weeks ago that you sent me a message to check on me and just like that I got the message saying you have left us; still remember where I was sitting when I read it. I often in times tease your other siblings that you were my favorite Amoo, and truly you were. You carried with you a swag like no other; witty, confident and smart and all your siblings will always refer to you in every relevant conversation and yes, as I got to know you over the years I understood why. Edwina always knew what, when and how to say it to bring a smile to your face or leave you bewildered in a good way to think. I remember when I will debate with you about political, economic and social topics and when I think I had won the debate, the next day she will come with some questions and points that make me look silly. I, we are really going to miss you; your family and the world has really lost a great person. I am truly saddened as I know you had your best years ahead of you, but I hope your family, especially your mom, will take solace in the fact that sometimes, God’s ways are not our ways. Rest well and know that we are all here for your family and your three beautiful little ones. Sleep well my dear young sis Onso; Da yie as you will always have a special place in my heart. Rest in Perfect Peace

  12. I will never forget that tingle in your eyes and mischievous laugh. May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace.

  13. Edwina, I am still in shock. You were such an awesome person and a great mum. I know you are in a better place. I will miss you dearly Edwina. Rest in peace dear.

  14. Oh Naana. Why so soon??
    We understand that everyone has to go one day or another.
    But some departures are too much to bear.
    This world deserved people like you but I guess heaven deserved you more!
    Rest in peace Edwina..😢😥

  15. Nana Wena I still cannot believe this but all I can say is rest well beautiful soul. Your beautiful heart and joyous soul lives on. Rest well dear sis

  16. I saw you just a few hours before you left for the States. That unknowingly was the last time we saw each other. The future looked so bright, but God knows best. You will forever in our hearts. May you rest in perfect peace my sister.

  17. So sad.
    I remember fondly your sweet nature way back when we shared the same class. Quite unbelievably, you are no more. God take care of your kids.

  18. It’s hard to believe that we won’t see your beautiful smiles and hear your sweet voice again. From Bethel to Sekco, you were a lady – one that I admired greatly. We’ll wipe our tears because we know you live on in your girls.

    Rest well, my dear. 😤

  19. Edwina fare thee well.
    It’s sad you’re gone unexpectedly without saying good bye. I vividly remember our first encounter. But for those in the Lord death is a bitter sweet experience. Bitter in the sense that the vacuum created by our loved ones can’t be replaced. But sweet in the sense that for we as Christians our departed is with our Lord.

  20. “Mummy” the hero of our time.
    You have fought a good fight and won the race. Young as you may seem you have seen it all and prepared well for our Maker’s call. Though gone you are still a survivor to us. Your beautiful, winsome, radiant,beaming and infectious smiles and fulfilling hugs will always linger in our hearts even in your difficult moments you still made it look simple. You made broken look beautiful and strong look invincible. We celebrate you Mummy. You are an epitome of a true selfless and hard working individual you never rested on your oars. You open your arms widely to welcome anyone who comes into contact with you and attends to them assiduously.
    When tears and grief engulfed us from seeing the pains you are experiencing you embraced us and cheered us up and rekindle our faith and hope in the Lord. Little did we know that you are communicating something important to us. You told us not to whimper that you are far better and will be better. You restored our hope and faith.We now understand and know that you resting well in the bosom of our maker.Rest well in the bosom of God.

  21. Oh Edwina, it’s so early that you have left us. You were the quiet type back in Sekondi College. Hardly did one thought you will exit so early. Continue to rest in peace mate.

  22. I still can’t get over it but it gives me comfort that you’re out of pain. My dear Edwina, there’re soo many things I have to tell you but God knows best.
    RIP Edwina, till we meet again.
