Mfon Esah, known to many in the Warsaw community as “Grace,” passed away quietly at home on Wednesday, December 29, 2021. Her health had waned for the past several years.
Born in Ibiaku, Nigeria on November 16, 1951, Mfon was the daughter of Edet Udo and Alice (Umo) Udo. She spent her formative years in Nigeria; it was there where she met the love of her life, Emmanuel Esah. The pair was married on June 20, 1976 in nearby Calabar. To their union, three daughters were born. While in Nigeria, she was a primary (elementary) school teacher for over seven years.
Mfon worked for the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) as a food inspector for more than 15 years and was most recently working at Crystal Lake Egg Products. She was a hard worker, often holding more than one job. But, nothing meant more to her than family. She prioritized staying in touch with her family across throughout the U.S. and around the world. She loved cooking, sewing, and doing home improvement projects. She enjoyed traveling – something she hoped retirement would bring much more of. Kind, empathetic and caring, Mfon was a person of genuine faith; she lived her faith, treating others with love, respect, and consideration. She also enjoyed studying the Bible.
In addition to her husband of more than forty-five years, Emmanuel Esah of Warsaw, those who survive with broken hearts include three daughters: Ekaette “Kate” Esah (Jennifer Kirkman) of Federal Way, WA, Claret Lewis of Midwest City, OK and Linda (John McMahon) of Alexandria, Virginia; two grandsons: Daniel Lewis and David Lewis and two brothers: Ini Ebiekpi and Amaitem Ebiekpi. She was preceded in passing by a brother, Sunday Ebiekpi.
