""We shall sing on that beautiful shore
The melodious songs of the blessed;
And our spirits shall sorrow no more,
Not a sigh for the blessing of rest.
In the sweet by and by
We shall meet on that beautiful shore
In the sweet by and by
We shall meet onthat beautiful shore..."

Auntie Nyamekye, you are forever in our heart. We love you but we just have to come to terms with the fact that our God loves you most!
Sleep peacefully in the bosom of your Maker till we meet again!
Our fervent prayers are ongoing for the family!

Godwin and Florence"

“If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied.”
‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭15:19‬ ‭NIV

“To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ. To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me.”
‭‭Colossians‬ ‭1:27-29‬ ‭NIV‬‬"

"Dearest Nyamekye,
Today, I replayed again the last events(24hrs) that led to your passing into eternity two years ago and what i felt is that i miss you terribly and it is going to be impossible to find such a wonderful human being as a best friend and companion again. Eli and I visited your grave this morning(I was almost hoping against hope that we will meet your there).
We took you flowers and prayed. We told God how much we missed you and what a beautiful person and example you were to all of us and how much we were blessed by your presence. We asked God to strengthen and empower us to continue your example of love, faith and hope in God and mankind in spite everything bad thing that we may encounter.
See you soon my love and best friend."

This tribute was added by Tse Amable on 22nd January 2016

"“Forever with the Lord!”
Amen, so let it be!
Life from His death is in that word
’Tis immortality.
Here in the body pent,
Absent from Him I roam,
Yet nightly pitch my moving tent
A day’s march nearer home

My Father’s house on high,
Home of my soul, how near
At times to faith’s foreseeing eye
Thy golden gates appear!
Ah! then my spirit faints
To reach the land I love,
The bright inheritance of saints,
Jerusalem above.

“Forever with the Lord!”
Forever in His will,
The promise of that faithful word,
Lord, here in me fulfill.
With You at my right hand,
Then I shall never fail;
Uphold me, Lord, and I shall stand,
Through grace I will prevail.

So when my latest breath
Breaks through the veil of pain,
By death I shall escape from death,
And life eternal gain.
That resurrection word,
That shout of victory:
Once more, “Forever with the Lord!”
Amen, so let it be!"

"Yes, a year ago when we were shocked to hear the passing on of our sister and friend, the ever smiling Nyamekye. Much as she is having great time with her maker and free from pain, there is much vacuum left behind particularly in the life of Senyo and kids. Nonetheless, the good Lord is and will keep them through. Nyamekye, enjoy your rest. You kept the faith to the end and that is commendable. We shall miss you all the same Kings & Doris Osei"

"Today feels like just a moment ago when we shared our last meal together (thanks to the help from Oku). You saw us to your door with all the strength you could manage as we heard you say your last farewell, parting with that familiar heart warming smile. How we miss you - family, friends and loved ones alike, yet comforted and strengthened by the assurance that you are indeed at rest and in peace with The Lord.

"A year comes so early, but that is only perhaps for those whose desks are full, but for others, it is could be a long time.  Short or long, we  thank God for this remembrance. The perpetual smile on the picture depicts her life: a warm embrace of the goodness of the Lord, and her acknowledgement of the deep spiritual inheritance of life in the Lord Jesus Christ as her priceless possession. As we observe the anniversary, our prayers are for her beloved husband and children and the rest of the family that she cherished so much. The smile, again, is an invitation to steer our minds and aspirations to where she is resting presently: the sweet bosom of our Lord Jesus the Christ."

This tribute was added by Stephen Ampofo on 22nd January 2015

"Nyamekye, a year ago you left us unceremoniously, leaving an aching void in our hearts.  We are comforted by knowing that you now rest in the bosom of the Father free from earthly afflictions and pain. Until we all join you on that eternal shore, continue to enjoy your rest. Your memory lives on."

This tribute was added by Jojo Entsuah on 22nd January 2015

"A year has gone by since you truly crossed over to eternity; the memories are still fresh, home has been different without you but your presence is always felt. I am sure glad to have and continue to be a part of the odyssey. The wedding in June in Spokane was different without you but sure did go on. You may be gone but not forgotten. Barbara, Akua, Afua and Ebo are all indebted for your love here on earth. We stand on His word that "absence from the body is presence with the Lord" 2 Cor 5:8

Love u lots.  Abena"

"God saw that she was getting a bit tired and cure was not to be. So He put His loving arms around Nyamekye and whispered, "Come with Me". With tearful eyes we watched you and saw you pass away. Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay, because He had made the command and He must be obeyed. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands called to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us that He only takes the very best! Rest in peace my sister ... just rest. You are home with your maker and that is what He has sanctioned, with the promise that He will take care of, and sustain all those with broken hearts. We will be okay because He who promised is faithful. Damirifa ... Damirifa ... Damirifa."

"We are still reeling from the shocking news of our dear sister’s demise. ‘Mekye was how I liked to call her and anytime she heard  me address her so over the phone, she would easily identify me, no matter how hard I tried to disguise my voice. I recall with fondness when as kids, my siblings and I used to visit the Abutakyi household and later in our adulthood she and Senyo always welcomed me to their home in London on many occasions. We continued to draw inspiration from each other upon our return to Ghana after our sojourns abroad. We last spoke over the phone in October, 2013. When I enquired of her health, she replied stoically, “I am taking it a day at a time”!!  Early in January, 2014, I had intended phoning her to give her well-wishes for New Year upon her return from Accra  but alas, it wasn’t to be!! “God’s Gift”, the Lord knows best. Rest in perfect peace."

"The memories linger on........so sweet, so gentle and so beautiful. Nyamekye you were indeed a good and perfect gift from above, not only to Senyo and your "boys" but to humanity. We were honoured to have you all visit our home in Italy years back; there I truly had opportunity to experience your gentleness firsthand.Several years later when Albert passed, you were there and sat with me for a long time after the service. That was comforting. Nyamekye thank you for leaving a bit of yourself in our hearts to cherish and carry with us always.
Hey! you made the best "korkor" (ripe plantain) and kontomire stew I have ever had.
Ewoenam, Judy & Stephen"

"You were named Nyamekye, “God’s gift” and yes, Nyamekye Ampofoa, you were a gift to the family, and those with whom you crossed path.  God’s gift, Nyamekye, you lived true to your name.  You exhibited elegance, grace and splendor, radiating the beauty of Christ during your short earthly journey.  You did not allow your physical afflictions to define your destiny and, in the midst of excruciating pains, lived a fulfilled life.  As a Christian you never lost sight of the essence of life and by the confession of your faith you showed that you were prepared to meet your Maker anytime He would call you home.  During several of our phone conversations and a visit to you while receiving medical treatment in London you always would end by reminding me that you were taking it a day at a time under the grace and providence of God but also testifying that the Lord had done so much for you, more than you ever hoped for.  Like the men of faith of old you portrayed the Christian as a pilgrim on this earth, affirming death is only a door to all that is far better.
Ampofoa, you repeatedly made us aware of the gravity of your health situation yet I still cannot come to terms that you are no longer with us.  I will miss your sweet, calm and contagious smile.  My little and dearest cousin, God’s gift to the Ampofo family,  the Asamoah Yaw clan of Mampong-Akwapim and to the larger human community whom you blessed with your presence, enjoy and rest in the bosom of the Lord your Maker until we meet again.

"We first met as ‘ninoes’ in Aburi Girls’ Secondary School and as part of the ‘B’ class, we found ourselves together in a closely-knit group. God brought us together again on Cape Coast University campus where, as room-mates, we became really close and shared such intimate times, as only room-mates can. Together with T. Ankumah (Annan) we spent a lot of time in the ‘inner chamber ‘ where Nyamekye’s bed was, chatting, laughing, praying and encouraging one another in the faith. We would kneel down at Nyamekye’s bed and pray, but not before Nyamekye had made sure we had emptied our mouths of our chewing gums. “We must go before God with reference”, She would say. We rarely missed the campus Christian fellowship meetings. They were so rich and our Christian lives grew by leaps and bounds.

Nyamekye returned from one GHAFES (Ghana Fellowship of Evangelical Students) conference extraordinarily excited. – She had met a certain young man, called Senyo Tetteh  (S.T.) whom we secretly referred to as ‘Simon Templar’.  From then on, he became the subject of many of our most intense prayers. Needless to say, our prayers and those of others were answered. They culminated in a glorious wedding and more importantly, the beautiful union and home to which we all bore witness.
The last time I communicated with Nyamekye was in an on-line chat.  She had just returned to England after spending what she described as ‘the time of her life’ with Senyo and their two boys, Eli and Oku in Ghana, but was already looking forward to her next trip back home.  She expressed how difficult it was for her to be in England away from her husband.

Nyamich, Adwoa Ampofoa, my cherished friend, I will miss you greatly, but I am comforted because I know you are in that super-glorious place with Jesus!  As He promised us in John 14:2-3: There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. (NLT)"

So soon you had to leave
Without a chance even to say good bye
If only you were here
If only you could see
The pain and hurt we feel inside

Ooh Nyamekye! 
Dear friend and sister!
A dear wife!
A dear mother! 
Though you're not here
We will always remember
You will stay alive
In our hearts forever

Even as you go along your way
We'll treasure the many times we shared with you
Deep inside our hearts
You will forever stay
Until our very lives are through

Ooh Nyamekye! 
Dear friend and sister!
A dear wife!
A dear mother! 
Though you're not here
We will always remember
You will stay alive
In our hearts forever"

"We first met in the 1980s when Nyamakye lived in Liberia and was my colleague at the University of Liberia. We became close friends and Nyamakye and Senyo both got to know my whole family. We later lost touch when the Tettehs left Liberia but got back together when I moved to Ghana in 2005. Even after such a long period of not being in touch, we resumed our friendship. I will miss you Nyamakye. Sonii/Magdalene"

"Nyamekye, My Dear Friend & Sister,

How brief life has been, how shocking, your home going, my sister. We met as young instructors and Christian women and young women, praying for God's blessings of children, you, the beautiful, calm and peaceful sister from Ghana, in Monrovia, your dear husband and you and me and mine, long before our kids came, and how dear you were to me, all the discussions, the praying time for babies, oh, my sister! Last time we saw you, in the late 1990s while Liberia burned, you and Senyo on your way from Canada, did not forget us, and in all the busy schedules, you visited us in Michigan, oh Nyamekye, I am in tears, my sister. The Lord has always been our refuge, and you, his lovely daughter, now with him? My heart weeps for losing such a wonderful sister and I am so far away. Bro. TB. sent me a short e-mail, and since 4 am, when my phone alerted me and I saw your name and then the news, there is no more sleep, Nyamekye. God has called you home to rest. And the boys are missing you. We will always cherish you, dear, and we will meet again on that great morning. Then, there will be no more death, no more tears, no more sickness, and there will be singing and rejoicing on that great morning. No words or tears will ever erase our memory. Mlen-Too sends his love to the boys you left behind.

Those fond memories will forever remain with me. Rest in the Lord until we meet again."

"Some us used to call her "its never true", from a testimony she shared one day at the UCC Christian Fellowship. She was always so gracious, gentle and soothing whenever she spoke to you. I never met her agin after she left UCC in the late 70's but I remember her as if it was yesterday. She was a true example a person whose faith was was built on the solid rock.

You assured us that you were fine and you would be traveling back to the UK on Saturday only to hear of your transition the following Wednesday morning. It was a shock. We take consolation however in the fact that  you have exchanged mortality with immortality and been ushered into the immediate presence of our Lord, the Lord you loved and served, and sought to obey in all you did.

When we talked the Saturday before you left Ghana you were cheerful and full of Joy, only to hear of your going to be with your Lord a few days later. Jojo and I thank the Lord for your friendship. You were more like a sister, from Legon to Liberia to Ghana, both you and Senyo have been tight friends. Thanks for making it to our 30th wedding anniversary celebration in December even though not well. A lot of your friends were able to see you there for one last time on earth. You have fought the good fight and you have won, because you are in the arms of your savior, no more in pain and fully healed. Rest in Him until we meet again. Barbara"

"My wife and I met Nyamekye through the husband when we worked together at the Family Life of the Calvary Baptist Church. She was always full of smiles and related to us as if we were old friends from school days. We recall the very exemplary marriage relationship the couple exhibited at all times that made marriage look so beautiful. If it is not for the grace of God, we would wonder how Senyo can handle such painful separation from his sweet wife and friend, but we know God is still in control. Enjoy your fellowship with your Lord in heaven, Nyamekye. All the living saints will join you one day. Kingsley & Doris"

"I was deeply saddened to hear of Nyamekye’s passing. I immediately thought back to our Sixth Form days at Aburi Girls, and our Scripture Union days.

The last time I saw her was during one of my visits home to Ghana. Rachel, Ameg, Brother Jude, R.G and a few other friends had lunch together. We picked up from where we left off, reminiscing about the good old days!
Her love for the Lord, her beauty inside and out, were so evident and a shining example. She will be dearly missed.
Rest peacefully in the arms of our Savior till we meet again."

"My dear Nyamekye,
You and I first met in 1963 at Achimota  Primary School when you joined our school  mid-stream and  we became  classmates.   We have been friends ever since - 50 + years of blessed friendship!  I thank God for this privilege.  We first became close friends during the Summer of 1966 at the Primary School Summer Course in preparation for our Common Entrance exams.  You and I slept in one corner of the dormitory, and at bedtime before going to sleep, you and I would chat and share sweets and biscuits that your Mum had brought you from home.  You touched me with your warm heart and generosity even back then.  

In 1967, four of us from Achimota Primary School, (you, me, Jane and Naa) continued as classmates in Form 1B at Aburi Girls Secondary school.  Our friendship blossomed as 11 year old ‘NINOs’ together, and we found ourselves again in the same class.  At Secondary School you did not allow your health issues to stop you participating in most activities and you joined in the fun and games together  with everyone else, as we studied together to cart out our future.  

Your second stay in the UK drew us back closer together again.  I will miss times like our shopping visit to Oxford Street with Rachel, when you bravely bore up exceptionally well.   I will miss the alternated visits to each other’s homes, sometimes with our adult children, over shared lunches and evening meals and indeed our shared prayers for the children.   In addition to your beauty of heart, you were a star cook and a perfect hostess, and OC and I will miss those times together with you and Senyo .   We will really miss those happy times.  When OC and I visited you at your flat soon before your trip to Ghana  last Christmas,  we were not to know that that would be our last chance of seeing  you.  But as we were reminded at the Memorial last night, you are indeed in a better place, and your parting may be our loss, but your gain, ‘…..to live is Christ, to die is Gain’.   OC and I already miss you dearly.   We continue to pray for Senyo,  Eli and Oku.   May your cherished soul rest with the Lord in perfect peace……..until we meet again.

"When I heard the sad news, I had to do a search through my email to pick up my last birthday wishes from Nyamekye. She was faithful in remembering my birthday each year. From our Aburi days in the "B" classes to our UCC days with "Mamfio" (Alice Eck), we enjoyed fellowship, food & fun! I still remember the spinach stew you made when our whole family visited you & Senyo! You have fought a good fight; you have finished the race; now rest safely, sheltered in the arms of God. Our thoughts & prayers are with Senyo & the young men. (T. Annan)"

"Just attended the Memorial Service for Sis Nyamekye Tetteh, we knew her as Ms Oku-Ampofo. The most heartfelt tributes I have heard in a long while.  She was an Abugiss Old Girl And that Counted for much - she waa a beacon of light. Everything that was said about her today was true, a testament to the light she brought to those who knew her. She left Abugiss and came back to teach us younger ones - selfless indeed.  It is often said the good die young; Sis Nyamekye you remain forever young in all our hearts; May your soul rest in eternal peace in the arms of the Lord.  Your toils are over, your pain is finished. Rest dear Beacon. Damirifa due!!"

"It was a delight to meet Nyamekye at her flat in Chingford with Brother Stephen Ampofo who was spending a few days with me in London. It was at this visit she spoke freely about her medical condition and how grateful she was to the Almighty for his abundant grace. She had such a pleasant personality and a lovely spirit. Albeit, the encounter was brief, it impacted me positively. SHE LOVED THE LORD. Rest in your maker."

My dear sister, may your soul rest in perfect peace. from Akua Kyere-Diabour."

"When we last met with you and Senyo at the Addai-Diawuos residence in London, together with Henry and Pauline Adjetey, you were so open about your challenges.Yet full of faith. You said you were ready to go home whenever it pleased the Lord to call you. It was said ever so serenely and matter-of-factly. But therein lay the secret of your calm spirit: being secure in your Father's love. So sleep tight in His loving arms. Goodnight, Nyamekye, Goodnight. Sackey & Lucy."

"She was Miss Oku Ampofo when I met her in September 1978 as our Form 1 History teacher. She was so beautiful and graceful. She completely fascinated me with the sweetness and grace in her demeanor and carriage. We thank God for her life and that there are so many loved ones to miss her because of the positive impact she had on our lives. May she rest in peace in the bosom of our Lord."

"When I saw the sad news on the JWI list serve my mind went straight to the happy memories we share as classmates in Aburi Girls. Our close knit group (Rachel, Clara, T Annan, 'Jackdaw', Doris Disu, Naabia...who else?) Sharing food, the nicknames and silly jokes. The privilege of knowing your prominent dad and mum and later our own families and especially our children. Nyamekye, we love you very much. Your sweet soul and these memories will forever keep you in our hearts until we meet again. Our DEAREST sister and friend, rest in perfect peace in the loving arms of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ ."

"When God reached down and collected your soul
You reached up knowing you had to go.
You feel the warmth upon your face
As you enter the land of God's good grace,
Mum and dad and loved ones gone,
Waiting there beyond the door.
With open arms they welcome you,
With love amazement in your eyes.

I have no regret knowing you,
Your beauty and your love,
Your gentleness and your smile,
Were all examples of God's love in you.

Farewell dear friend, I will miss you,
Until we meet again, farewell!

Joyce Berchie (Asamoah)"

"Nyamekye was a perfect lady. Many times I got close to her, I was so awed by her gentle spirit. I knew brother Senyo at UST as a gentleman and a serious Chrife brother. In fact, it was Senyo's non-Chrife course mates who fueled my curiosity to meet Senyo. Years later when I met Nyamekye, I knew this was exactly what God intended Eve to be for Adam. Nyamekye was a helper fit for Senyo. I admired her tenacity."

This tribute was added by Esther Acolatse on 31st January 2014

"Dear Nyamekye, the only person I know that one can call “sweet” and it not sound syrupy. For you were sweet to the core of your being. You loved everyone without undue fuss and made all comfortable in your presence. I recall the times in Aburi when your mum would visit and you would sit in her lap without shame—it takes a teenager comfortable with herself to pull that off! You were the grown-up taking what you needed; we were the kids pretending to be grown-ups.
Your gentle strength displayed in your relationship with friends and with the close friend you lived with in your body who taught you how to suffer well and leave the rest of us an example. We who knew you are indeed blessed and thankful that you shared your life with us. Though you and I were parted for many years we fell into step again just less than a month before your being called home. We held each other in an endless hug and swayed our quiet thanks for a chance to meet again.
Later when by grace or design or both we sat at the same table for the dinner to celebrate Jojo and Barbara – you, Senyo, Florence Hutchful, Apostle Jude and myself—amidst all that chatter, there was a stillness about you and you seemed constantly lost in praise; eyes closed as you gently nodded to the songs of worship and praise as if to say “Yes Lord, you know” Yes Lord, when you’re ready”.  I will carry that memory of your countenance of serenity tinged with praise with me for a long time.
Till we meet, till we meet
Till we meet at Jesus feet
Till we meet, till we meet.
And see you in your glorious new body!
With hope and anticipation—Esther"

"My classmate in the B class- and I one of the little ones. You were so serene, even in pain. I never thought that the time I delivered your medicine when I inadvertently left it in London would be the last time we'd meet face to face. You fought long and hard and now the good Lord has called you home. I look forward to when we'll meet again"

"This smile of Nyamekye is truly her gift to us through God's touch on her. How it feels between our present knowledge and her presence in the Lord is surely not our mandate to understand. But it is well in our sorrow even as it is well in her glory. The smile will keep us aglow with hope. Sleep well! RansRence"

This tribute was added by Dr. Samuel Kisseadoo on 31st January 2014

"I knew Nyamekye in Cape Coast University in the late 1970's. We had great fellowship together with the Christian sisters on campus, sometimes in her room, followed by personal chats and prayers with her. I vividly remember her captivating smiles, love for God, decency, elegance, courteous nature, very humble & teachable spirit, and a visit to her father Dr. Oku Ampofo at Mampong Akuapem. My last meeting with her was after preaching in 2012 at Calvary Baptist Church, Adenta, Accra. She walked to me, and realized that I was definitely surprised to see her and to find out she was in the audience as I spoke; so as I stared at her speechless, she also stared at me and loudly said: "It's me; it's me". She did not mention her name, because she knew that there was no way that I should not recognize her. Both of us then laughed. Her sweet memories will ever remain with me. Nyamekye, you fought and won. Your legacy lives on. We shall meet again "Across The River, On The Other side". Rest in the Arms of Jehovah, and joyfully wait for us. Indeed "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints" (Psalm 116:15). Sam Kisseadoo"

"It has been a great pleasure knowing Nyamekye from Cape Coast University in 1976 up to December 2013 when we last visited her and her son Oku in their new flat in Chingford.  Sylvia and I played the guitar and we all sang.  We went food shopping at Tesco.We did not know that it was our last fellowship.  Our heart go to Senyo and the two men Eli and Oku.  Nyamekye is with the Lord and it is better for her."
