July 30, 1953 - August 28, 2020
With profound sadness we are heartbroken to share the news of the passing of our mother, sister and grandmother Agnes Achiaa (Auntie Aggie, Ama Akyaa, Madam) on Friday August 28, 2020 at the Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, Georgia. She was 69. Agnes story starts when she was born in Kumasi, Ghana to Mr. John Amankwaah and Madam Mercy Akua Frimpomaa, both of blessed memory. Auntie Aggie was loved and protected by her brothers, sisters and children. She is the first of her siblings to pass on to eternity. Ama Akyaa had a beautiful heart. She did not love only her children, nephews, nieces and other relations but others she was not acquainted with. Madam had a vivacious personality and always made people around her laugh. She made friends everywhere she went. She always told the truth even if it wasn’t what you wanted to hear. We will cherish forever her strength, courage, wisdom, and boldness, as well as her unfailing love. We know that she will be deeply missed by many, and our family appreciates your condolences and prayers. Her life was a living example of her favorite Bible verse, Ephesians 4:32 – “And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ”. At very young age, while at Methodist primary school at Bantama Kumasi, Ama will travel with her younger brother, Kwame, to the village on All school vacation days. She will walk for miles, with her brother, in a blizzard to get to the farm cottage. Ama learnt so much from the hard work in farming, fishing and cooking. She was a master cook in the kitchen. She believed in overcooking everything until it chewed like rubber so you would never get sick because all germs would be nuked. Agnes obtained her Middle School Leaving Certificate at State Girls middle school at Suame, Kumasi in 1966. She took a course as a hair stylist and eventually setup her beauty salon in Bantama, Kumasi. Ama was working diligently as a hair stylist until she got married and moved to Accra in the 1970s. She and her husband moved to Nigeria and finally to the USA with her family. When she landed in the United States, she wanted to take advantage of the numerous educational opportunities available. So she enrolled at Chattahoochee Technical College for CNA/PCT and received her diploma in 1993. She worked at MannHouse from 1994-1996 as a Nursing Assistant. She later worked at Shepherd Center as a Medical Records Assistant from 1996-2011. Ama Akyaa was a devoted Christian, she has been with The Church of Pentecost, Atlanta since 1993. Madam was seriously taken ill in December 2011 and started Chemotherapy from February, 2012 to May, 2012. She recovered and went about her daily activities however, she had to follow up treatments. On August 25, 2020 she had to be rushed to the emergency room. Just like all mortals, Agnes Achiaa finally surrendered to the divine call to eternity. She passed away after few days in the hospital. Auntie Aggie was a wonderful woman that was loved, is missed, and will always be cherished. The family will also miss your tender and motherly care. Ama Akyaa, you truly fulfilled the Bible verse “Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven”. Matthew 5:16 Ama, fare thee well and may the Good Lord keep you in perfect peace. May the Almighty grant your Soul Eternal rest. Due! Due! Damirifa Due! Due ne Amanehunu!!
