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. –
