PHOTOS from Chimamanda Adichie's mother's burial ceremony in Anambra state

Nigerian author, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, has finally laid or buried her mother, late Mrs. Grace Adichie on May 1, 2021, in Anambra state. Mrs. Grace was the first-ever female registrar of University of Nsukka, Nigeria - (UNN). 

Late Mrs. Grace Ifeoma Adichie was laid to rest in her hometown, Abba, Njikoka LGA in Anambra state. Her funeral mass was held at Saint or St. Paul's Catholic Church, Abba. She's survived by six children and nine (9) grandchildren. 

Narrating how her mother died, Chimamanda says: 

"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,” she wrote.

"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.”

"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."
