Miriam Wanjiku, a sister to the late Nakuru MP Dixon Kihika Kimani was laid to rest yesterday at her farm in Kihingo Njoro. She was wife to the late Njoroge Kihiri to whom she was married since 1946.
Born in 1924, the late Miriam was the second born in her family and left behind several children and many grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren. She died on 8th April this year.
“The Miriam lived a richly blessed life. She was always jovial, hardworking and generous,” a neighbour described the deceased.
Among those who attended the funeral was Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika who is a niece to the late Miriam.
“I’ve always been close to my late aunt Miriam. One thing I always admired about her was her good memory. Even at her advanced age, her memory remained very sharp and we would always talk about the past,” said the senator about her late aunt.
“As we lay her to rest today, I pray to God that He gives me long life and a good memory like she did my aunt,” she added.
In attendance also was the area Member of Parliament Hon. Charity Kathambi.
