Obituary of Antoinette Untukayatsha


On July 29th, 1958, in the DR of Congo,

Antoine Okenge and Henriette Dala welcomed 

their first child named Antoinette.

Antoinette was a brilliant child who completed her

studies in DR Congo. 

Antoinette’s interest in sewing started from a young

age as she watched and helped her mother sew. 

She excelled in her career and education as 

a seamstress and also as a businesswoman. 

During her professional years, she participated in

many fashion shows which demonstrated her 

talent in dressmaking. Antoinette’s love for travel 

lead her on many business ventures from the early years

of her marriage. Her first business venture was selling 

baby cribs and her last business venture was owning an African 

clothing store called Antos Fashion and co -owner of Alowa Foods Supermarket . Throughout her years, 

Antoinette had great support from her husband

Medard Tosomba with whom she was married to 

for 41 years. Antoinette and her husband were blessed 

with 6 children whom they raised as hard-working parents. 

During her years in Canada, Antoinette and her husband

became proud grandparents to 7 grandchildren. Antoinette 

was very family-oriented and showed love to all who

crossed paths with her. In 2019, Antoinette started having 

serious health concerns which later led to her undergoing 

kidney dialysis in 2021. During her final years,

Antoinette and her family remained hopeful about her

getting a kidney donor but 2023 brought some complications 

in her health and she returned to the Lord on March 11th, 2024.
