Maria is survived by her children Diom Ngeh, Naintang Ngeh, Chuoh Davis (Benjamin Davis Jr.) and Kimbeng Hamiel (Charles Hamiel). Additionally Maria is remembered through her loving grandchildren Jada Ngeh, Nayah Ngeh, Kaiden Ngeh, Benjamin Cameron Davis III, Karlie Hamiel; nieces Sylvia Akenji, Bimi Wallang, Bemsi Wallang, Sih Nkuo, Bih Nkuo, Wifoin Nkuo; nephews Victor Akenji, Fon Akenji Jr , Kuma Nkuo, Mboini Wallang, Huxley Johnson; brother Hyacinth Nkuo; sisters Theresa Nkuo-Akenji, Lucy Nkuo Wallang, Veronica Nkuo, Elizabeth Nkuo Johnson; brothers in law Fon Akenji, Sebastian Wallang, David Johnson; and sister in law Leonie Nkuo. Her most adorable parents whom she called Bah, Thaddeus Nkuo, and Na, Catherine Nkuo, live on to thank God for the exemplary life of their first child.

Maria was born in Njinikom, Cameroon, and attended primary schools in Njinikom, Lagos and Enugu Nigeria, and Secondary Education at Our Lady of Lourdes College in Mankon, Cameroon. Maria went on to earn her bachelors degree in nursing at George Mason College. She then became a Registered Nurse, earning her masters from Louisiana State University. She served as Nursing Supervisor in Battle Creek Health System in Battle Creek, Michigan for over a decade. At the same time she was a clinical instructor at Kellogg Community College.

She enjoyed spending time with her children and grandchildren and was always so happy whenever her parents, siblings and their respective families visited. Maria had such a beautiful voice, loved singing, listening to music, visiting the nail salon, and helping others in need. Above all she was steadfast in her Catholic faith and had a great devotion to Our Blessed Mother Mary. Maria-Goretti passed to eternal happiness in the Feast of the Holy Family Jesus, Maria and Joseph.

A celebration of Maria’s life will be held on Monday, January 7th, 2019 at 10:00 am at St. James Catholic Church. A private burial will follow for immediate family.
