Oheachilla Mary Idikwu (nee Omenka) went home to Jesus on June 15, 2020, at age 49, after a brief illness at Our Lady of the Lake Hospital, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA.

My heart is saddened at the passing of Achilla. She and her husband was an inspiration to me and all who knew them through the Jobs for Life class. Her faith in God was quite evident in her actions and words. She will be truly missed. Blessings to her husband, David, her children and extended family.
