Magaret Urenrenbu Ogbebor, 71, of Houston, Texas, peacefully passed away on Sunday September 17th, 2023, surrounded by loved ones, after a recent brave fight with T-cell Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.

Margaret was born on April 10, 1952, in Avbiosi, Owan West of Edo State Nigeria. She attended St. Davids Primary School in Avbiosi and attended Uzebba Morden School.

After graduating from Uzebba Modern School, Margaret joined the Nigerian Police Force in 1969. In 1970, she met her husband Christopher in Lagos Nigeria. Christopher and Margaret wed June 16th 1973, and went on to have three children Omo, Efosa and Nosa. They travelled the world where Christopher served in the embassies of Cote d’Ivoire, Trinidad and Tobago, Guinea, the United States (New York), Spain and Canada. Margaret was passionate about her family and all the friends that they met throughout their posts. She was the best wife, mother and homemaker to her children.

After Margaret and Christopher retired from the Foreign Service, they relocated to Houston, Texas to live with their daughter and her family. Margarets passion for her family lead her to be an integral part of her granddaughter’s lives. She was the best grandmother. She loved to cook, she loved fashion and jewelry, she loved watching tennis and had a good sense of humor. Most importantly she was a devout Catholic and loved Jesus Christ.

Margaret is predeceased in death by her son, Nosa Ogbebor, who passed away on July 20, 2018, and by her husband, Christopher Ogbebor, who passed away on September 25, 2022. She is survived by her daughter Omo, her son Efosa, her son-in-law Obos, and her five grandchildren, Sato, Imina, Esosa, Sede and Osayomore.

  7. My condolences go out to you Omo, Efosa and the entire family. I pray that God strengthens you at this difficult time. Auntie was like a mother to me. When I moved to Ottawa in 1999, she lovingly welcomed me into her home. I spent many weekends at the house, going to church with Omo & Nosa. I will miss those numerous conversations we had, especially when she visited Canada later on in summer. She always called to check on me, even while travelling, in US or Nigeria. I can still hear her voice, asking after my family, making sure we were ok. Rest in peace auntie. I will always remember you and how to took a motherly role in my life, it’s helped shape the person I am today.
