Before her death on Sunday,4 September 2011,she was one talented Enugu-based actress who featured in over 80 movies and several soap operas with many of them still running on air.

Geraldine Ekeocha who was aged 56 left behind 7 children,6 girls and 1 boy.

Geraldine’s a native of Imo State but was resident in Enugu State where her acting career began.

We learnt the family members have not yet decided on the burial arrangement.

God please have mercy on her and accept her in your kingdom. May God give her family the fortitude to bear the loss.

Please if you are above 50 don't bother removing fibroid. Once you enter menopause it dries up, unless it has become cancerous.
Major operation in Nigeria is like a death sentence. This was exactly what killed my sweet MEE MOFE DAMIJO.

God please save us.
