The Wesley Methodist Church in Meadowlands, Soweto, was bursting at the seams on Sunday as parishioners gathered to celebrate the life of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.

"She loved the people of God," said retired Reverend Ike Moloabi.

Moloabi and Madikizela-Mandela struck up a kinship when she joined the church in 1998. He said she was dedicated to the church and was always willing to lend a hand. 

Madikizela-Mandela made her last public appearance last Sunday when she attended the Easter Sunday service.
