She was a member of Resurrected Christ International Church led by her uncle, senior pastor and mentor Alexander Ehambe Lufile, and his wife, Mama Farialah.
Sissi will be remembered as an exceptional woman, and a loving mother and spouse. She is survived by her husband Dixon Kanyinda, her son Nathan Ilunga Kanyinda, her son Thomas Tambwe Kanyinda, her daughter Rosalia Mujinga Kanyinda, her daughter Sungu Kayla Kanyinda and her grand-daughter Capri Rose Kanyinda.
Sissi’s favorite Bible scripture that she faithfully quoted every single night before going to bed was.
13 All your children shall be taught by the Lord,
And great shall be the peace of your children.
14 In righteousness you shall be established;
You shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear;
And from terror, for it shall not come near you.
15 Indeed they shall surely assemble, but not because of Me.
Whoever assembles against you shall fall for your sake.
Sissi will be greatly missed by many.
