Beatrice Bushi (Ntombi) Maseko was born in Lady­smith, KwaZulu-Natal, and was the only child of Flora Mabaso.

She also at­tended school in her home­town of Lady­smith. She and her late hus­band Grif­fith Maseko met and got mar­ried in 1970.

From an early age, she wor­shipped at the Lutheran Church in Or­lando West where she served faith­fully as a “mother” of the church.

Maseko died at the Chris Hani Barag­wanath Aca­demic Hospi­tal in Soweto on Mon­day.

Maseko was also a staunch mem­ber of the ANC, Gogo Club and Ma­jakathata Lunch Club – a non­profit or­gan­i­sa­tion lo­cated in her neigh­bour­hood.

“Her gen­er­ous spirit and pleas­ant per­son­al­ity en­deared her to many. Her Chris­tian life was as beau­ti­ful as the flow­ers that she loved so much. Her in­flu­ence will for­ever re­main in our lives,” said Cather­ine Duma on be­half of the fam­ily.

Maseko is sur­vived by sons Prince Maseko, Thami Mabaso and Sipho Mabaso, 18 grand­chil­dren and six great-grand­chil­dren. –
