A Centenarian, she really lived a fulfilled life since she lived to see the fruit of her labour. She had several grandchildren.

She was firmly behind her son in all aspects of his life [including his political career], however, she first appeared in the political scene when her son staged a coup in 1979.

She was also the head of the catering department at the presidency during her son’s reign.
