It is with deep sorrow we announce the death of Miss Cynthia Wanjiru Kuria who died recently in Ilford London, UK. She was born on 11th October 1978. Shiru Kuria as she was popularly known, was the first born daughter of Bernice Janet Wanjiku Kuria and the late John Mbatia Kuria.
Bernice (deceased mum) lives in Germany has been battling illness for the past two years and has not been gainfully working but she determined to come and burry her daughter whose body is still with the coroner. It is not easy for Bernice as her daughter just collapsed in the house and never made it to the hospital despite the paramedics effort.
The family is therefore appealing for finances to assist this very needy situation as the Lord will enable you. “Give and it will come back to you good measure shaken together and running over”.

Marion, known to her loved ones as Ma’, was extremely intelligent, kind, beautiful and loved by many. She was so caring and found spending time with younger people/children and animals, especially cats, very rewarding. She loved studies and effortlessly achieved highly in all her academic goals. Ma’ was brave and bold to bring her caring qualities and personality in to pursuing a medical course prior to her passing. No amount of words can explain the momentous impact that Marion has left on the family, friends and everyone that met her.
Monday 19th July – Marion was rushed to A&E, became critically ill and was admitted to ITU. The entire medical team worked so hard and did everything they could but sadly Marion succumbed to her illness and passed away on the 5th of August 2021.
Following Marion’s untimely death, this Gofundme is set up to support her shocked and heartbroken family who must lay their loved one to rest at the young age of 21. This funding will help Marion’s family to cover funeral expenses and give her a befitting send-off that she deserves.
Marion’s Mum, brother and the rest of the family would like to thank you in advance for your support.

She had such a gentle loving spirit and was a darling to everyone she met. She will be deeply missed. It’s now our turn to give back and help her family as they deal with the loss and help Monica get home to her family in Kenya for her final resting.
