MAMA...
Mama was the quintessential Mother, Grandmother, friend and sister to all who were blessed to have known her. Loving Mama, peacemaker, cheerleader, unifier, nurturer, mentor, teacher, and philanthropist. She was the kindest, most understanding and forgiving Mother, a woman of God above all. Mama was an avid reader who travailed in prayer. She cherished time with her family, loved cooking for loved ones and treasured the many dinner conversations that followed. She particularly enjoyed counseling, playing scrabble, watching tennis, and traveling.

Mama, you are a beautiful spirit whose presence will be dearly missed. The blessings you gave us in this life are immeasurable, shaping in every way who we have become. We will continue caring for and helping others, making the world a better place in your memory. Your life was a blessing mama, your memory a treasure, you are loved beyond words and missed beyond measure. We hold you close within our hearts and there you will remain, to walk and guide us through our lives, until we meet again.

It broke our hearts to lose you mama but you did not go alone. A part of us went with you, the day God took you home.

If tears could build a stairway and heartaches make a lane, we'd walk our way to heaven, and bring you back again. 

In life we loved you dearly in death we love you still. In our hearts you hold a place, no one could ever fill.

her Life
A golden heart stopped beating after 68 loving years. Mercy Bessem Tataw nee Egbe “Entered into the joy of her Lord” (Mathew 25:21) on April 10th, 2021. Mrs. Tataw fondly called “Mama”, “Mama the Mama”, "Grand ma", Daughter of Mr. Martin Ashu-Egbe and Mrs. Agnes Mbengnchang Egbe, was born in 1952 in Mamfe, Cameroon.

Mama, grew up in Tiko and Kumba, where she attended elementary and secondary school, completing her education at Saker Baptist College in Limbe. Mama took pleasure in competing in a variety of sports including tennis, which was her favorite. After graduating in 1971, she married Mr. Albert Enow Bessong Tataw, a union blessed with six daughters and two sons. She also found success working for the Ministry of Finance for over 30 years which she found both professionally and personally rewarding.

Mamas main passion in life was ministering. With an open heart she lent a sympathetic ear, guiding and counseling others with her wisdom. Her lifelong dream was to establish an orphanage and care for disenfranchised children. She was not able to realize this vision, though she did achieve it in a broader sense by welcoming and offering her love, compassion and care to countless children. Mama will be remembered for her philanthropy, piety, caring heart and unwavering devotion to her family and loved ones. Mama will live on in the hearts of her 8 children and 19 grandchildren, family members and many beloved friends.
