Her funeral has aborted three times due to court orders obtained by the step daughters who are opposed to her burial at Mathunya village in Mitaboni, Kathiani sub-county .
Beatrice was married to the late John Kathumba who died in 1989 and they did not sire any children as she was barren .
Kathumba had also married another wife, Esther Nzola who bore him children but also passed on in 2009.
