Tradition On Display; Ama Dokua Performs Pre-Burial Rites For Late Mother-in-law

It is highly expected as a tradition to honour the late as they transition to the after-life. This weekend, the late Mary Aba Sanni Tetteh Quist, mother of Charles Bissue goes home.

In preparation for her final funeral rites, the daughter-in-law, Nana Ama Dokua Asiamah-Adjei, Deputy Minister for Trade and Industry has performed a beautiful pre-burial rite for the funeral. As tradition demands, the in-law is to provide sanitary items for the final bath of the deceased. 

In a very emotional text on her Facebook wall, Nana Ama Dokua Asiamah-Adjei said “this woman showed me so much love that we had a fantastic relationship.” 

She described the mother in-law’s passing as a heartbroken experience, not for her alone but for all those who knew her.

“It is rather an emotional time for us and anyone who had a stint with this kindhearted woman. I pray she finds peaceful rest.”

Men are not supposed to cry but this wasn’t the case for Charles Cromwell Nanabanyin Onuawonto Bissue, a beloved son of the late Mary Aba Sanni Tetteh Quist. As he performed his rites before elders of the family, memories of the lost mother flash his mind.

“My heart is heavy,” he wrote on his Facebook wall.

Charles Bissue had lost his only surviving parent, a woman he so adored. Beginning today, the late mother would be laid in state, followed by a burial service on Saturday 9 October 2021 at Apostolic Church, Dansoman Last Stop. Other funeral services will continue at Methodist University Colleague sports field.

The funeral is not just for the immediate family but one which would see the attendance of high-profile personalities including President H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, and party executives of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP). Pictures taken of the pre-burial ceremony proves that it would be a grand funeral for the late mother of Charles Bissue.
