Nicolyn Teke

April 8, 1979

October 26, 2016

Born on the 8th of April 1979, in Batibo Cameroon, Dr. Teke Nicolyn Nyinmaah was a radiant, ambitious and at the same time a friendly person. She attended her primary, secondary and high school in Bamenda, North West Region of Cameroon. Known and beloved for her calm and at the same time loving nature, Nikki (as she was fondly called) trod through varsity studies in Cameroon.

Her resilient nature and her life buoy led her to South Korea, where she pursued post- graduate and clinched her Ph.D. in International Relations. Nikki was a selfless, ambitious and bubbly person, who became a lecturer in Global Studies at Namseoul University. Even when faced with adversity, Nikki’s tenacity was her trump card.

She was a devoted mom to Shim (5yrs) and Grace (3yrs) and quickly learned to sacrifice everything to make her kids happy. She leaves behind her kids, four siblings, her mom, other family members and friends to mourn her. The world has lost a devoted mother, an exceptional sibling and a formidable friend.

In the early hours of October 26th, 2016, Nikki passed away suddenly from a Cardiac Arrest.

My condolences go out to the family. I am so sorry too hear of the lost of a dear loved one to this family. Dealing with this situation can be the hardest thing to face. God's word the bible gives heartfelt and true meaning for ones sleeping in death; Revelation 21: 3,4 says: 3  With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. 4  And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” God also promises a hope for ones to have life again at John 5: 28,29a : Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29  and come out. Feel free to visit for more encouraging bible truths.

It is obvious that Nikki touched many lives. She will be missed, but her memory will live on among those who knew and loved her. Comfort comes with good times, good memories, and hope that we will soon see Nikki again. She is safe in God's memory, and Jesus promised at John 5:28 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." The songs you chose for this page are just beautiful, and I look forward to seeing Nikki soon - in paradise!

Reflection on the life of Nikki, gives much comfort knowing her strength and love will live on in the hearts of all. Healing starts with good memories, lasting comfort comes from God who will give, "Thoughts of peace, and give hope for the future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)

I never met or knew her in person but as a sympathizer and a lover of humanity, i will say "Mourning can go on for years and years.
It doesn’t end after a year, that’s a false fantasy.
It usually ends when people realize that they can live again,that they can concentrate their energies on their lives as a whole,and not on their hurt, and guilt and pain".
To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.My condolence to the family.

I woke today to find an email from Paul Eseme where in he talked about the death of a former Ajou Student (Nicolyn Teke aka Nikki). I am an ex student of Ajou University but unfortunately, I think I attended at a later point in time not knowing either Nikki nor Paul. Regardless, I clicked on this link and was touched by what I read and though I didn't know her, I felt so much grief. The world has lost an educated soul and death took away a mother, sister, aunt, friend and a school mate. "Death where is your victory". May her gracious soul rest in peace. My condolence to the family.
