A Kenyan woman who, together with family, was visiting her motherland over the Christmas holidays has passed away while en route back to the US. Faith Kairu (pictured with her husband) was the wife to Timothy Kairu – formerly of Atlanta and now living in Texas.

The young mother of 3 passed away Tuesday in an Amsterdam hospital after falling sick while on a flight from Kenya.

Faith is survived by her husband and 3 children, with the youngest being a 4 month old girl.

Family sources told the press that the couple had gone home with their 3 kids but the mother fell ill before their intended stay was over.

“They decided to cut short their stay and go back to their home in Texas. While airborne, her health deteriorated,” said a family member.

On arrival in Amsterdam, Faith was rushed to the hospital where she was admitted. Kenyan well wishers in Amsterdam took the kids so her husband could be at his wife’s bedside.

However, on Tuesday, things took a turn for the worst and she was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Here are photos shared by the family. May she rest in peace.
