The Union of Professional Nurses and Midwives Ghana (UPNMG) in the Upper West Region at the weekend joined the family, sympathisers in Pungu-Telania in the Navrongo Municipality and mourners at the Burial and Memorial Service of the late Mama Avuechira Kusoewolo.
The UPNMG joined the Regional Director of Health Services, Dr. Damien Punguyire, and his family for the funeral and burial of his Mother.
The solemn ceremony took place at the forefront of the family house last Saturday, at the congregation of the Assemblies of God Church of Ghana in the Municipality.
The late mother of the Regional Director of Health Services was 72 years old, and was the last of three girls.
The late Avuechira had no formal education, as there was no access to school, especially, for girls during her time. She, therefore, spent the early part of her life as a shepherd.
She got married to her sister’s husband in accordance with culture and became the second of four wives to the late Kusuewolo Kwarase.
Present to mourn with the family last Saturday were the UPNMG National Vice President, Mr. Amo Lexington Maclaughlin, the Deputy National Secretary, Mr. Thomas Nif, the Upper West Regional Vice President, Mr. Kenneth Naaeder, the Upper West Regional Secretary, Mr. Iddrisu Abubakar Bajo, the Upper West Regional Finance Officer, Mrs. Babadaaratenge Mary, and the Upper East Regional Secretary, Mr. Kamila Issahaku.
