Tsegeweini Haile Gebremicael was born on 01/01/40 to her father Haile Gebremicael and mother Gergis Gebremariam in Gura Akeleguzay (Zoba Debub) Eritrea. She grew up helping her parents on the farm and with household chores. In 1956, Tsegeweini married Teklezeghi Emnetu in Ade Bur. Within two years, they welcomed their child Haregu Teklezeghi. Her separation with Teklezeghi Emnetu led her to move to the city of Keren where she worked for a few years in order to provide for herself and her family.
Due to the intensity of the war, Mrs. Tsegeweini decided to flee from Eritrea to Kessela, Sudan. During her time in Sudan, she met and married her late husband, Araya Abreha. After a 9-year separation due to the war, Tsegeweini met her daughter, Haregu, and were finally reunited in Khartoum, Sudan. In 1992, Tsegeweini and husband, Araya, were sponsored by her daughter to come to America to be reunited once again. Tsegeweini quickly became an integral part of the San Diego Eritrean community as well as the Kidane Mehret church community. Tsegeweini faithfully went to every Eritrean event, whether it was playing the koboro at the Independence Day guayla, singing at the women’s day event, or attending church; she loved being with her people.
For past three decades, Tsegeweini and her family lived a peaceful and humble life filled with love and laughter. Tsegweini passed away at home surrounded by her loved ones on October 7, 2023.Tsegeweini is survived by her lovely daughter Haregu, son-in-law Georgeo, grandchildren Samuel, Abiel, Zara, Roza, and Rora, and her great-grandchild Caleb. She is also survived by her sisters, brothers, nieces and nephews. Tsegeweini was a loving, nurturing, hardworking, supportive, and God-fearing woman. May God accept Tsegeweini into his kingdom and bless her family and friends.
