Yeshimebet  Habte-Michael
Mrs. Yeshimebet Habtemichael was born to her parents Mr. Habtemichael Birru and Mrs. Desta Mekonnen on August 19, 1937, in the Seba Dereja district of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. When she was of age, Mrs. Yeshimebet pursued her education at Princess Zenebework School.

In accordance with the prevailing custom of that period, Mrs. Yeshimebet wed her first husband, Dejazmatch Daniel Abebe, at a very young age, and gave birth to her first daughter, Mulushoa Daniel.

Then in 1957 she married her second husband, Mr. Fantaye Woldeyohannes Belaineh, with whom she shared an exemplary, happy life spanning some sixty-one years, raising five children in all: Mulushoa Daniel, Senait Fantaye, Tedenek Fantaye, Manalebish Fantaye, and Metasebia Assefa. Mrs. Yeshimebet was preceded in death by her husband Mr. Fantaye. In addition to her five children, she leaves behind eight grandchildren: Bethel Tesfaye, Ambaye Michael Tesfaye, Adam Taye Zerihoun, Samra Taye Zerihoun, Hannah Taye Zerihoun, Aida Taye Zerihoun, Abel Mesfin, and Kidus Mesfin.
