Grace Oduah Obituary

Grace Ifeyinwa Oduah, 62, passed away peacefully on March 15th, 2024 at University of Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania surrounded by her children and grandchildren.
     Princess Grace Ifeyinwa was born in Lagos, Nigeria, December 5th, 1962. She was the Daughter of the late John Igwe D. O.  Oduah and the late Victoria Oduah. Grace attended Primary and Secondary School in Nigeria, later traveling to the United States to attend St Pauls College in Virginia. She then moved to Pennsylvania and pursued a career as a Certified Nursing Assistant and later as a Cosmetologist and Esthetician.

Grace also studied vigorously and took her Citizenship test to officially become a United States Citizen in 2022.
     She was a member of St Margaret's Church, and was a practicing Catholic.
     In Grace’s free time she enjoyed shopping with and for her Grandchildren, making traditional Nigerian dishes, and watching Nigerian movies. She attended several conventions and events in celebration of her native heritage. What Grace enjoyed most was spending time with her family and grandchildren, laughing and making memories.
