Obituary of Cecilia Oteng-Pabi

The late Cecilia Adjoa Oteng-Pabi was born August 8th, 1962 in Tema, Ghana to Mr. Wilson K.N. Mensah and Mrs. Lucy Nimako-Mensah. She was the fourth of eight siblings. Cecilia was raised in Ghana where she attended Mantey Din Drive Primary school, Twedase Middle school and Nifa High school prior to completing her education at Takoradi Polytechnic.

After Polytechnic, she got a job at the Kings Theatre in Tema. Hard work resulted in her rising through the ranks to Contract Manager for the Kings Theatre. In 1984, Cecilia left Kings Theatre and immigrated to Belgium for two years before permanently residing in Toronto, Canada.

In 1987 she met the love of her life, Charles Oteng-Pabi at church, and got married at the Prayer Palace in Toronto, Canada. In 1988, she gave birth to her first born, Samuel Kwaku Oteng-Pabi, in Toronto. Five years later she had her second child, Jeremy Amoa Oteng-Pabi in Mississauga and finally she moved to Brampton where she gave birth to her only daughter, Danielle Akomea Oteng-Pabi, in 1998. Throughout her busy life and after children, she also managed to continue her education where she completed a business certificate in 2003.

The late Cecilia Oteng-Pabi was a dedicated employee who was beloved by her colleagues and respected for her diligence and commitment to hard work. The majority of her career was spent at Apotex, where she made friendships that lasted a lifetime.

The late Cecilia was a long-time member of the Prayer Palace, where she received spiritual nourishment for the majority of her time on this earth. As a church member, she spent many Sundays in the children’s ministry where she would sacrifice her time to serve as a nursery teacher for young children/infants while their parents attended service. Her passion to serve the Lord guided her footsteps and her walk with Christ.

Cecilia was committed to spreading the gospel and winning souls for Christ, evangelizing about her faith and all the wonders Jesus did for her. Above all else, the late Cecilia’s primary objective was to help spread the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit.

She was often described as a strong, dedicated and persevering child of God. But those that knew her best, would also witness her humor, kindness and love she had; particularly for her family and those closest to her. She was always welcoming others, despite their circumstances or situations. Her capacity to care for those around her often showed no limits. She was not only a sister, wife, mother, aunty and friend; she was a role model to all that knew her.
