Beauty Dumazile Ntuli, who was a staunch Lutheran Church member, will be laid to rest in Msinga, KwaZuluNatal, tomorrow.
Ntuli, 72, died at the Church of Scotland Hospital in Tugela Ferry in the uMsinga district last Saturday after a short illness.
She was born in 1944 in Nkashane in KZN and was the child of the late Dorren and Mxokozeli Ntuli.
She attended school at Cramond Primary near Pietermaritzburg.
After her primary schooling, Ntuli worked as a domestic worker in the area for many years.
She later worked at the local hospital as a cook for 10 years until she retired in the 1980s.
Ntuli was popularly known as “Gogoz”, a nickname that she was given by one of her grandchildren.
“My mother was full of love and she was also loved by the family and community,” said her daughter Thembi.
Ntuli was married to the late Mfana Sokhela and the couple was blessed with seven children. She leaves behind three children, eight grandchildren, one great-grandchild and three sisters.
At time of her death, Ntuli was still tending to her garden in Msinga.
