Kalesir Louisa Tatah was born in Cameroon West Africa to mama Veronica Ndifon Tatah and (late) John Nformi Tatah. We had a close knit family growing up with Aunty Lou as was popularly called always being the wise authoritative one. Louiza attended Roman Catholic primary school (famously Bayelle) in Nkwen Bamenda and later CCAST Bambili where she obtained both her O and A level certificates and later to the University of Yaoundé where she graduated with a law degree. She then got an employment with the Cameroon Radio Television CRTV where she served for a couple years before she migrated to the United States. She battled with the system to acquire what we all came seeking, greener pastures and better lives for our loved ones back home. She went into Real Estate, Medical coding, Entertainment industry and even attempted to launch her magazine. In December 2019 she travelled to Africa to visit family but got stuck there longer than planned because we unfortunately lost our elder sister and my mum also got into an accident. Louisa became her mother’s care taker who underwent a series of surgeries and later spent a couple of months in a rehabilitation center, When mama could find her way around, Louisa returned to America last week of February 2022 to hustle and return to Africa to spent time with her mother. She started her hustle as we all do, but started coughing end of April. In a normal visit to the hospital she was diagnosed with cancer, and was also informed it was late for any type of treatment. She passed away surrounded by her loved ones in mercy hospital Coon Rapids on the 15th of June. She leaves behind her mom, brothers and sisters, nephew and nieces to mourn for her.
Louisa was passionate about a lot of things but family was most important to her. She was always the center of love and she will greatly be missed.
