Omaima was born 13 July 1946 in Iraq and grew up in a loving family with 4 sisters and a brother. She was born a twin but was the only girl that survived. As a young teen, she loved music, art, clothes and food. She was always performing, decorating, dancing and living in the moment. She simply loved life. This never changed.
Her marriage was a love affair from the start. She adored her husband of 50 years, and he was in love with her till the very end. Everywhere they went, every country they traveled, they were always noticed for their affection towards one another.
She lived most of her adult life in London, where she raised her family and loved them immensely. She provided a home of deep love, unlimited affection, endless embrace and a bustling kitchen keeping everyone’s belly full. Her parties were the talk of the town, her home was always open and her hospitality was exquisite.
For over ten years, she was a volunteer to feed the poor in London. She would organize food caravans and serve the homeless at St. James’s Church in Marylebone. The night before, she would be dressed in a Valentino dress, Jimmy Choo shoes and a diamond brooch attending a soiree or a dinner party.
