Hey my girl,
I miss your smile, your enthusiasm and most of all your hugs! I was blessed to sit with you at lunch, 5 days a week for many years. We shared so many laughs and good times. I never, for one second, ever thought that you wouldn’t beat this. Looking back, I wish I saw the signs.  I miss knowing that you are there for me, I miss your words of wisdom, I miss your beautiful face. I love you my friend and promise that I will still be here if you ever call for me. I promise I will be listening❤️

Our dearly beloved Miranda, your sudden departure from this life is extremely difficult to stomach. You’ve been such a breath of fresh air. You were a great friend and sister to us all and will be inherently missed. You were a strong and direct person,real, bold, driven, hardworking, fit, logical and exceedingly honest because
you cared about everyone’s well-being.

 I am full of regret because I should’ve honored your invitation for the last Cameroon Ottawa NJANGI to dance and celebrate vibrantly your life!When I met you at the hospital you were strong and I knew
you are a fighter and will fight with same fortitude and will overwhelm the odds! However, death is a necessary and inevitable end for us all! God knows why and we can’t question His supremacy. Death is not a defeat because Christ
conquered it. Living for Christ was the most beautiful part of your life and I trust
you are resting majestically
in the bosom of our Lord.

We will miss such a beautiful soul but we’re in peace because you are in a
much better place.

Our prayers and supplications to your children, husband, and the entire
family at such a difficult
time.

Rest in the perfect peace of Christ my dear sister!

Clovis and family!

The Seasons of her life…
Miranda was a woman true to the meaning of her name – rare, remarkable, admirable and vivacious. To have known Miranda was to live the true meaning of I am my brother’s keeper. Auntie Mimi was a woman that was at peace with others, herself and her maker.
Auntie Mimi, you burst into Eli’s life and mine in 2011. I will forever be grateful for your trust and the privilege of being one of the organizers and MC for your baby shower to welcome Marie-Georgette and her first birthday thanksgiving. Because of you, Eli and I became acquainted with a wonderful community of people who appreciate culture by always having us as your guest during Njangi.
The truth is I will never be able to enjoy a glass
of Baileys without your presence.
Thank you for your smiles
Thank you for your support
Thank you for your love
Thank you for your kindness
Thank you for being YOU
Our memories of you will always shine through your kids. For as big a heart you embodied a bigger heart they have inherited.
Eli and I will always make sure we do our part.
Rest in Power.

Dear Aunty Mimi (as we fondly called you),
It’s been two weeks and I am yet to come to terms with the fact that you are no more. How can you be no more? You who had the energy of ten people put together, you who always volunteered when something needed to be done. You were selfless to a fault and I always wondered how you managed to do all the things you took upon yourself? It's as if you knew you didn’t have a long time in this sinful world and you did everything you could to touch as many lives as possible during your short stay here on earth. Rest in peace sister and may God receive your beautiful soul in his heavenly kingdom.

My GHS Limbe Friend who later became my Sister......
"O death, where is your sting? O grave, where is your victory?.... 
We may have hundreds and millions of questions, but one thing we know is that God giveth and that same God taketh. It is hard to believe, it is hard to accept.... But I believe in God and I know it is His will and I have to accept it. Rest in Perfect Peace my dearest Mimi, MiranTabs. I wish I had the time to even say goodbye - hate to do it after the fact.... Really painful. Rest in peace until we meet again. Forever missed in deed - love always!!!!

Like the daughter of the True King, you served with joy, in humility and love.
Your helping heart and hands knew no boundaries; they only saw need and you selflessly provided.
Your light was bright and inviting, it gave hope and put big smiles on weary faces - no one we know can take your place.
Now that our King has called you home to rest, we say goodbye beloved sister and friend till we meet again at His feet.
We love and miss you Mimi.
Thank you.
Norbert and Lily.

It has been two weeks since you passed on to Glory but my heart still bleeds. Bleeding because of the selfless and sacrificial love you shared with me and my family. Knowing you has been a wonderful blessing that can never be forgotten. We were together last December and hugging each other while comforting a sister who lost her mum, I never knew that was my last hug with you dear my sister. May you continue to rest well in the bosom of our Lord still we meet to depart no more. Still loving you my dear sister.Continue to Keep that beautiful smile in the heavenly places. You were such an Angel to many and you will be greatly missed. I will be singing the song we sang together the last time we meet in remembrance of you.RIP my darling sis.
Commy Ngangum and family.

Miranda,
Le Seigneur t'a rappelé à lui,
Rien n'est plus fort que sa volonté.
Tu es partie, mais dans nos coeurs tu demeure.
Personne ne pourra combler ce vide que tu laisses....
Repose en paix grande soeur.

She was best friend to many of us and a real blessing to our lives. Her passing away leaves an emptiness so present that it could be physically felt. She was the Holy-Grail of friendship and my heart is so broken. Forever you will be badly missed Mimi but I thank you for all the love and wonderful memories… RIP MY BEST FRIEND, may you find favour Above.

​Biography of Miranda Tabi

Miranda Baliki Tabi, fondly called Auntie Mimi, was born on March 22nd, 1974 in Ekona, South West Region, Cameroon. Mimi was the 3rd child to Mama Bokwe Cecilia Tabi and dad Robinson Mbanda Tabi (of Blessed memory).

From birth, Mimi brought such joy to her parents and siblings, with a beautiful signature smile which she maintained all through her life.

Education: Mimi studied mostly in the South West region of Cameroon, Central Africa. She attended Government Primary School Ekona in 1981, Government Secondary School Nyassoso, Government High School Muyuka and Government High School Limbe where she obtained her Ordinary Level Certificate (‘O’ Level) and Advanced Level Certificate ('A' Level) respectively. She continued to the University of Douala and later graduated with a degree in English Language.

Mimi by her jovial disposition made so many friends from her days when she was a student. These friends later became like family members to her. She remained very close with these friends for over the years. Her”joie de vivre” was so contagious that it created a positive impression to everyone she met.

Professional Life:
 Mimi worked in Spectrum Cable in Cameroon before immigrating to Holland in 2001. She later on moved to Canada where she continued her studies and graduated to practice as a Nurse. Auntie Mimi worked at the Perley Rideau Veterans’ Center and at Home Hospice Agency for several years. From these locations she made so many friends who later became family members. We thank her colleagues throughout the years for loving and being close to Mimi so unconditionally.

Personal Life: Mimi has lived in Ottawa-Canada since 2001 where she developed very strong roots with the community. She got married to her sweetheart Benjamin Ebokem (fondly called Uncle Ben) and had three kids; Johannes (13 years old), Marie (6 years old) and George (5 years old). Mimi is also survived by her dear mother, mama Cecilia, Auntie Joan of Ottawa, several beloved siblings, her loving in-laws, ‘moyos’ and a very large extended family of friends and colleagues.

Auntie Mimi was a member of several groups including the Vessel of Destiny prayer group (which essentially started in her living room in 2008) in Ottawa, Cameroon Njangui group, and several other groups. She remained very active in her Alma Mata and ex-student associations, and maintained strong relationship with old friends from Cameroon and Europe.

Auntie Mimi has been ill since 2017 and went into remission in 2018 when family members and friends joined her in celebrating thanksgiving in June 2018. She fought so valiantly all through her illness, had a lot of self confidence and assured family members and friends that she will be ok. Her faith in her Lord Jesus Christ grew by leaps and bounds throughout her years and it was ever more apparent during her illness. She remained strong and faithful, bowing to God’s will in all things. She passed on peacefully surrounded by family members and loved ones who stood by her with non-stop prayers for her recovery and for her to be pain free. Our Heavenly Father in His wisdom decided to call Mimi home on March 14th, 2019.

Our Wife, Daughter, Mother, Sister and Friend is now resting in the bossom of our Lord. We have prayed for a peaceful slumber and we trust God has granted her same.

Thank You…. We will like to thank Mimi’s family (both immediate and external). The out pouring of tears of love, support, concern and prayers was truly phenomenal. Thank you especially for how well you loved Mimi. Each and every person in her circle made a difference in her life, and for that we say thank you.

Thank you for your support, prayers and hard work in preparing a wonderful farewell for our darling Auntie Mimi. Without your help none of this would have been possible.

May our Heavenly Father continue to bless us all, and please do take a moment to light a candle in Aunti Mimi’s honor on the memorial website: ___________________

Love and blessings always and in all ways.....

The family…

A tear of sorrow, a smile of hope!

Shared by Adeline M on April 6, 2019

My dear Auntie Miranda, words cannot convey the deep sorrow your loss brings. As we struggle to comprehend, a ray of hope pierces through this darkeness, for we know you FOUGHT THE GOOD FIGHT. And although with human eyes we may not perceive this, your victory in Christ was healing. Now you shall know no pain for He has made all things new again. As you rest in the peace of Christ, may your life's work and testament be a witness always to a Christ-like life. May you watch over Jojo, Marie, little Georgie and their dad. Heaven gained a saint! We will keep watch, emulate your good fruits and pray to rejoice with you in God's glory one day.

The Good die too soon.............

Shared by Jude Anoma on March 28, 2019

Tons of years ago, we met. Tons of years ago, we came to know you as a very special person. You were full of life and always smiling. You were always there for everybody. You hosted the prayer group for many years and your house was always open to everyone.

You were not an aunty to Simon and Mabel but their mother. You were not a friend to Christine but a sister. We lived it up close and saw you opening your heart to everybody. Your love for family showed in every aspect of your life. You always placed others before yourself and if anyone attempts to encapsulate the essence of your life, that person would fail because with you, it is indescribable. Some people are too good to live long and your life is an example which will be quite hard to equal. 

As you rest in the bosom of the God whom you loved so much, rest assured that your memory lives forever and that Uncle Ben your loving husband, and the kids, Jojo, Marie and George (including your mum, brothers and sisters) would always have the support of your friends who are actually your family. You are a shining pearl and we would miss you.
