Late Naomi Wambui

With deep sorrow and great sadness, and following the passing of Naomi Holmgren, a Kenya-Stockholmer, the family of the late Naomi would like to announce that the departed will be laid to rest on Friday, 12th July 2019 in Huddinge, Stockholm, Sweden.

According to Margaret Njihia who is coordinating the funeral arrangements, a Memorial Service for the late Naomi will be held at Skarpnäk church, the same day of the burial, after which the mourners will proceed to the burial site.

Following the sad news, an “Open House” has been established at Spannarpsgränd 9 in Älvjö Stockholm.

Family members, friends, well-wishers and sympathizers are meeting daily at Älvsjö to condole with the bereaved family.

Naomi passed away on Saturday, 29th June 2019 after suffering a stroke. She was then rushed to hospital but doctors could not save her life. She was pronounced dead a few minutes later.

Naomi had just returned from the United States to visit her beloved daughter, Nelly Njeri, who lives in Georgia, Atlanta. The daughter has since arrived in Sweden to help organize her mother’s funeral together with Naomi’s sister, Jane Stockhaus. Naomi was married to Leif Holmgren who is still in shock following the sad news.

Naomi, who was 65 years old at the time of her death, was loved by all Kenyans who knew her. She was a very religious person and always took the opportunity to pray for Kenyans at each and every function.

She was a humble, light-heated, wise, jovial and a very happy person. Kenyans will remember her for encouraging them at every opportunity to heed the word of God and to read the bible.

In Stockholm, she will be greatly missed by those who enjoyed her sermons, listened to her words of wisdom and benefited from her consolations during moments of sadness and sorrow.

Now, she has gone to be with her maker. May God rest Naomi’s soul in eternal peace.
