Death and Funeral Announcement Joyce Atieno “Nyamzee” Okello

Death and Funeral Announcement Joyce Atieno “Nyamzee” OkelloWe are sorrowful as we bring to you very sad news of sudden death.  Ms. Joyce Atieno “Nyamzee” Okello passed away on Thursday, December 29, 2011.  While her family anticipated the start of a “Happy New Year” this never came true since “Nyamzee” passed away peacefully in her sleep in Dallas, TX.

She leaves behind her dear children, Nick Adams Turey and Jackie Achieng Ougo, and her grandchildren of Arlington, Texas.  She was a mother-in- law to Mercy Arunga Toure. Joyce was a loving aunt to the Dale’s, Otondi’s, Ogweno’s, Osodo’s, Otieno’s, Okello’s, Ocholla’s, Bryan Yongo and Elisha Odhiambo among others.  She was sister to Hon. Sam Okello (Mayor of Kisumu City) among others.


The Organizing Committee and The Late Sister Joyce Okello’s family cordially invites you to her funeral fundraiser to be held on Saturday, January 7, 2012, at 9205 Skillman Road, Suite #100, Dallas, TX 75243 from 5PM.


The memorial service will be held at All Nations SDA Church, 3618 Roosevelt Drive, Arlington TX 76016 on Sunday, January 8, 2012 at 3PM.

Prayers and funeral arrangements are held daily (7pm) at her son’s residence: 906 Cattail Drive, Arlington, TX 76001.

Joyce “Nyamzee” was a fun loving, generous and compassionate human being.  She was a mother and friend to many in the diaspora and in Kenya. Please continue to lift her loved ones in prayer during this difficult time.  The Organizing Committee forecasts an overwhelming funeral situation coupled with heavy financial obligations including: Funeral Home expenses, shipment of her body to Kenya, family’s flight to and from Kenya, hospitality, burial and other funeral related expenses.
