W/O Mulualem Gebre Tsadik

W/O Mulualem Gebre Tsadik, was born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in 1943 to parents

Gebre‑Tsadik DeJene and Gete Wolde‑Giorgis. Although she lost her father early in life, she

grew up in a nurturing and extended family as she attended and completed her schooling at

Etege Mennen High School. She continued and inished her post‑secondary education at the

Commercial School of Ethiopia, where soon thereafter she met her future husband to be.

On December 1962, she got married to Ato Mulugeta Estephanos and followed him to

Stockholm, Sweden as his wife. While in Sweden, the newlyweds had their son, Samson

Mulugeta. Almost two years, they had their daughter Yemisrach Mulugeta in Athens, Greece.

W/O Mulualem committed herself to fully raising her children, while following her

husband’s diplomatic career in Europe, China, and Ethiopia.  W/O Mulualem was able to

reenter the workforce, once her children were of age, and worked as an accounting clerk at

NCR and Ethiopian Beverage Corporation. She later joined her adult children in the U.S. for

the primary purpose of helping raise her grandchildren Robel Samson and Blaine Elias.

Along the way she easily connected and developed formidable relations with the relatives

of her in‑laws by cooking for them and inviting them for hearty meals, an obvious trait she

was known for and remembered by.

Sadly, however, for approximately the past decade, she dealt with an illness that she

resisted but one that she finally succumbed to on May 14, 2019.  W/O, or “Eteye Mulualem”

as she is fondly remembered, leaves this earth having made a positive impact and beloved

by many; and survived by her husband and children. She will be missed!

A Funeral was on Saturday, May 18, 2019 at 9:00am at Re'ese Adbarat Debre Selam Kidist Mariam Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church
