She was not only a pillar and an oasis of calm to her family but a great leader , a friend , a mentor , a visionary to many.
She was the epitome of strength , the embodiment of resilience , who in the face of life’s challenges , remained amiable and gracious with her signature smile that inspired many. Her laugh was like a burst of sunshine on a gloomy day and was terribly infectious.
She is the founder of Dr. Robert Ouko Primary School and Dr Robert Ouko Library which won the best library in Kenya award in 2014 three times consecutively currently being run by the Kenya National Library Services . Both enterprises are based on her property which she bequeathed to the Community and the Country at large.
Today as we lay her soul to rest we pray that God grant the family strength in this pressing moment.
