Obituary

Thelma Una Sephetsolo

May 23, 1977 – November 17, 2017

"The Lord is near to those who are broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”

Psalm 34:18

Thelma Una Sephetsolo, affectionately known as Una, was born on May 23, 1977 in Molepolole, Botswana. She was the first-born child to Jerry Sephetsolo and the late, Tshelebana Lynette Sephetsolo.

Una was a woman loved by many. She was a dedicated mother and an overall beautiful soul with an unselfish spirit. She was a talented artist and prolific reader who completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree and Master’s Degree in Education at Barry University and was at the tail end of successfully attaining a doctoral degree in Organizational Leadership at Argosy University. She was an educator by profession, training other professionals to excel and loved to exhibit her teaching ability through the successes of her professional students. Una was a lover of life. To be known by Una was to be loved by her. She was a genuine person filled with joy and laughter.

Tragically, Una’s life was turned upside down with the loss of her mother in 2016. She travelled home to Botswana for her mother’s homegoing service and while there, she learned of her stage 4 breast cancer diagnosis. She returned to Atlanta, Georgia in February 2017 to seek more comprehensive treatments. However, the cancer was too aggressive and resistant to prescribed medications.

On Friday November 17, 2017 at 5:35pm, in Douglasville, Georgia, Thelma Una Sephetsolo was called home to be with the Lord. She had fought a valiant battle against this monster of a disease. She leaves behind two beautiful children Rohi and Ella, aged 7 and 4. She also leaves behind her life partner, Mondy Kelly Marshal, as well as her father, Jerry Sephetsolo, her 3 siblings, Khumo, Kgosi, and Mumsy, 3 aunties and an uncle, nephews, nieces, cousins, extended family, and many friends.

As per Una’s wishes and desire, she is being laid to rest in Miami, USA, which is a place that Una called home for many years. Miami is where she met her life partner, and where both of her beautiful children were born. This will serve as Una’s final resting place. She fought dearly for her life, but we can find solace in knowing that she is resting peacefully and painlessly.

As a Christian, Una knew that a place had already been prepared for her and knew of God’s promise of a time beyond the present in Revelation 21:4 that “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

The family wishes to thank everyone who showed support during this time of extraordinary grief and encourages you to keep Una’s memory alive. Amen.
