“If we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord”– Romans 14:8

Eunice Joana (Jo) Anane-Asamoah (née Dontoh) was called to eternal rest on October 14, 2022, at the age of 59 at UMASS Memorial Hospital, Worcester, MA.

Eunice was born in Bibiani, Ghana – the 6th child of Mr. Emmanuel Acquah Dontoh and Mrs. Eugenia (Baah) Dontoh both of blessed memory.

Eunice was a hardworking and loving mother who sacrificed everything for her children, a Rotarian, a passionate cook, a lover of God and a proud Presbyterian. She loved to make others happy through food and she did that for over 30 years in Ghana through “Be-Nice” her restaurant in Ghana before emigrating to the US in 2017.

She settled in the Worcester area and worked as a Home Health Aide: a job she was devoted to and continued doing even throughout her illness. She enjoyed her job and bonded with her patients like no other and used her cooking to bring joy into her patients’ life.

She leaves behind her husband: Nana Diamono Asamoah Korkorte Kumi; her children: Nana Afia Agyekumwaa Anane – Asamoah of Ghana, Eunice Sarpong of Germany, Benjamin George Takyi Anane-Asamoah of Springfield, IL; adopted son Emmanuel Asamoah of Ghana; son-in-law, Kwame Boateng Sarpong of Germany; her beloved grand children: Jibril Mukhtaar, Maame Akua Anane-Asamoah and Ezra Boateng Sarpong; stepsons Alex Anane Asamoah of Ghana and Obed Asamoah of Millersville, MD; 7 sisters and 2 brothers; several cousins, nieces and nephews and many “adopted” children and many beloved friends she called family.

A funeral service will be held at Callahan, Fay & Caswell Life Celebration Home, 61 Myrtle St., Worcester, MA on Saturday, November 19 at 8:00am. Burial will follow at Notre Dame cemetery, 162 Webster St, Worcester, MA. After the burial, there will be a small family gathering from 2pm at Church of Pentecost, 41 Providence St, Worcester MA.

Eunice was the epitome of someone who loved deeply and selflessly, she would take the clothing of her back to give to someone in need. She was kind, warm and had a heart of gold.

Eunice will always be remembered for her selflessness, strength, faith, and love for her children.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to her children to assist with funeral expenses.
