Brief Biography

Nneoma Idah Uzoamaka Nnama, JP was born on the 19th of October, 1923. She was the second child and first daughter of Late Bishop S.M and late Mrs R.A NkEMENA (nee Ndukwe's family of Oraifite) of Ire village, Obosi in Anambra State of Nigeria.

She attended the C.M.S school Ihiagwa and Nekede Central School in the Owerri Province. She finished her elementary school at St. Monica's Girl's School Ogbunike in the year 1940.

In 1942, she was admitted into the prestigious Queen's College, Lagos where she obtained her Senior Cambridge School Certificate in Grade 1. She went on to the School of Nursing and Midwifery in Aba General Hospital in 1946 where she obtained her Grade 1 Midwifery Certificate in 1948. In 1990, she completed her Family Planning in U.N.T.H Enugu and was certified accordingly.

On July 1, 1950, she got married to her husband, Late Chief Godwin Chukwuedozie David Nnama (G.C.D) and were blessed with Seven Children, Three Girls and Four Boys and Fifteen Grandchildren.

In 1956, she opened her first private maternity in Calabar registered as 'Charity Maternity Hospital'. During the war, she relocated to Anambra State and subsequently registered her second private marternity hospital in 1983 in honour of her late Mother inlaw 'Selina Nnama Memorial Maternity Hospital, Nibo'. She birthed over 10,000 pregnancies. Most of these cases were 'Charity cases' because she birthed, fed, treated and discharged them at no cost because they could not afford to pay.

Mama lived an invested life. She was a mother to all; Her family, her husband's family, her workers, her Church members, Full Gospel Nibo members, her patients and those that had one reason or the other to relate with her. She trained  everyone that came along her way. She fed, loved and cared for everyone irrespective of colour, relationship or social status. She loved the poor and down trodden more. Her house was always open to anyone that needed any form of care. 

Mama touched many lives and would be greatly missed by everyone. Her strength came from her special relationship with her best friend Jesus Christ. She taught her children and grandchildren the way of the Lord. She introduced Him to everyone that came across her while carrying out her charity works. She supported the work of God which earned her numerous recognitions like Nneoma by the Anglican Communion. She was a Life Member of The Full Gospel Businessmen's Fellowship International.

Mama lives on in the lives of the people she left behind. She preached a message of love and unity. We are comforted by the fact that she lived a good life and is resting in the bossom of her best friend, Jesus Christ.

To  everyone, we ask that you honour her by loving others (especially those that may not be able to pay you back). As it is written in the bible, as much as it depends on you, live peaceably with all men. Be reconciled to God and make Jesus Christ your Lord and Saviour so that one day, you will reunite with Mama at the feet of Jesus Christ.

Mama anyi, Nneoma, Nwachinemelu, Omenyi Nwanyi, Ada Bishop, Ati Onu, Ogbueshi we love you and would forever miss you. Sleep on our beloved Mother till we meet to part no more.
