It is with great sorrow that we announce the death of Millicent Odotte Opiacha

She was promoted to glory on Tuesday January 14th after a courageous battle with cancer. She was fifty two years old.

She is survived by her loving husband Martin Opiacha, sons Leon and Mike Opiacha and daughter Nimmie Opiacha.

She was the eldest child to Mr. Michael Odotte Kojiem and Rosemary Odotte. She was sister to Beatrice Omollo, Eunice Odotte Amadi, the late Ben Odotte Kojiem, Dorothy Odotte, Amos Ochieng Odotte, Winnie Odotte, Lydia Odotte and Doc Odotte. Cousin to Naaman Pallo, Tina Ojiem, Duncan Ojiem, Judy Ojiem, Linda Ojiem,Kevin Ojiem, Jack Obong’o, Lillian Omwono, Anne Omwono, Nixon “Ojaa” Oloo, Humphrey Oloo, Nancy Oloo, Wycleff Oloo, John Opiyo,Newton Adoyo, Jerome Adoyo, Loyce Adoyo, Mike Ogolla, Terry Ogolla, sister in law to Agnes Ogaja Kojiem, Rebecca Okore Odotte, Carolyne Njoga Odotte, Joshua Opiacha, Ruth Opiacha.
She was born and raised in Kisumu, Kenya and later relocated to Nairobi Kenya to persue a career with the Kenya commercial bank. In search of better life for herself and her family, she relocated to USA to persue a nursing career. The reckless and indiscriminate hand of death robbed her the American dream of one day owning a nursing home and giving back to the needy in her native country Kenya.

Nyanyelo, as she was fondly known, was an inspiration and a shining gem to many who knew and got to interact with her. Her tenderness, kindness and motherly love touched and inspired us all. She will be laid to rest at her native home in Usenge, Bondo. Kenya.
