Sister Lydia Barashango now an Ancestor

Sister Lydia Barashango now an Ancestor

September 28, 2011 Greetings
Sorry to report that Sister Lydia Barashango is now an Ancestor.  
She made transition this morning. She lost her long battle with breast cancer.

As many of you know, Lydia was the Sister of Mumia Abu Jamal and the wife of  Ancestor Rev. Ishakamusa Barashango.  She was a registered nurse and later in life achieved her Master’s in Social Work.

The memorial arrangements are still being made, there will be one in Baltimore where she has lived recently with her son and one held in Philly. May her spirit’s journey into eternity be a smooth one, the pain she suffered no longer slows her down and may her spirit always find a peaceful place to rest…..Hotep!!  Ashe!!  Heri!!
