Obituary

On Thursday, June 3, 2021, our beloved Nyome B. Kamara passed away. As we mourn her untimely passing, please continue to keep us lifted in prayer. Nyome was a devoted and selfless wife to her husband, Sidikie Kamara, and children Sibriya, 7, and Sidikie Jr., 5. She filled her family's life with joy, laughter, ambition, and enthusiasm. Her zeal for life and service to humanity was without measure. Her love and devotion for people with disabilities earned her great love and respect from the Prince William County community at large. What an awesome gift she was to mankind! And now, Heaven has gained her as a beautiful angel.

Nyome was the founder and director of BrightCare, an adult day care facility for people with disabilities. As the director, she did not see those that she served as clients, but as family. She truly had a passion for education and serving her wonderful BrightCare family. Everyone who knew Nyome knew that she loved her work and adored those who came each day through the doors of BrightCare.

As a healthcare professional, she enjoyed challenging opportunities and conquering any obstacle that dared to stand in her way. As a strong and compassionate leader, she directed a diverse education, mental health, nursing, and support team.

Before starting BrightCare, Nyome served as the director of an Alzheimer's care unit; an executive director of a home healthcare center; an operations manager to a home health care agency; and as a care plan manager for a nursing center. These are just a few of the titles Nyome held that exemplify her dedication to and love for people most in need of an advocate.

Nyome was a graduate of Towson University, where she earned her Master of Science Degree in Gerontology. She also attended the University of Maryland, College Park, where she earned her Bachelor of Science Degree.

In lieu of flowers and memorials, Nyome's loved ones have created a GoFundMe account - in Nyome's name and honor – with all proceeds supporting her family and the BrightCare programs she dearly loved. The Kamara family is grateful for the outpouring of support already shown at this time of their bereavement. Donations can be made to the Nyome Kamara Memorial Fund [https://gofund.me/fa7ecb84].

A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, June 19, 2021, at 5:00 PM. A period of reflection will be held from 4:00 to 5:00 PM. These services will take place at Christian Life Church, 7845 Ashton Avenue, Sudley North Building, Manassas, Virginia 20109. As mentioned above, Nyome is survived by her husband of 13 years, Sidikie Kamara, and her two beautiful children.

In loving memory of Nyome B. Kamara
August 5, 1985 – June 3, 2021
