Janet Vihenda Keverenge: January 8, 1956 – August 27, 2017.
It is with great sorrow that we announce the death of Janet Vihenda Keverenge who was residing in Falls Church, Virginia, USA. Janet Vihenda Keverenge was daughter of the late Javan Mmboku Keverenge alias Vunyada and the late Ester Kisia Chovoregi of Lunyerere Village, Chavakali location, Sabatia District, Vihiga County, Kenya.
Janet started working for an American Diplomat in Kenya and Abidjan, before migrating with family to USA in 1995. She continued to work for the same diplomat for a few years while in the USA. She later got a job with Sunrise Assisted Living, where she worked until she fell ill in 2006. Janet was diagnosed with kidney failure. She struggled with the condition which required her to undergo regular dialysis, making it very difficult for her to work or keep a job.
In 2016 her condition deteriorated. She developed wounds (caused by varicose veins) that would not heal, which led to the amputation of her right leg. Janet has been in and out of hospital and rehabilitation homes for all these years. Towards the end of August, she was rushed to Fairfax Hospital. This time she would not come back home. She lost her battle with the kidney disease and finally left us at 2.16am on August 27th, 2017. Her devoted friend, Patrick Oppon was always by her side.
The body is now at W.H. Bacon Funereal Home Inc. in Washington D.C. Any contributions will be appreciated in order to send her to Kenya.
She is survived by her daughter, Pauline Aleyo Adagala, four grandchildren, two sisters and two brothers who all live in Kenya.
