|Let the memory of Olufunke be with us forever|
"May your gentle soul rest in Peace. I can't stop thinking about your beautiful smiles and the good times we had together. A wonderful mentor - gone so soon. Thanks for being there! Till we meet at the feet of the Lord bye......."
"So gentle. Rest in perfect peace Funke."
"May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace. Amen. Sade (Lijadu) Onyia"
"Funke, gone too soon.
The Medilag jewel of a soul
Two and half decades since we all thronged out Medilag New Great Hall
Took our oat to "do no harm"
Taking away with us great ideals
Walking out into the world unknown
Biding each other goodbye and goodluck
Oblivious it was our last together
Our sojourn pulling apart thereof
Our ways diverting in this unforgiving world
Our hearts finding emerging new focus
Many of the old memories dropped
The special memories of Medilag, Idi-Araba surpressed
The ideals of Idi-Araba many adandoned
Clearly Funke did not
Testimonies of Funke's life bear witness
The words of many speak for themselves
Funke held firmly to those great ideals
Many have testified to her selflessness
Many speak of her unrivalled generosity
Her avid committment is consistently attested to
Commited to friends, family and strangers
Committed to humanity
Committed to God; importantly so
God will not abandon his own
He prepared the passage for Funke
God rekindled the ties and bonds of those great Medilag years
Just in time for Funke's passing on
A reunion which many thought was for later activities
Could it be God's set up?
The speed and enthusiasm of the Medilag reunion
It could only be God's set up
Our coming together again just days before Funke's transition
I believe this is God's set up
And we now know better
Yes a divine set for a special woman of God
Funke, our Medilag rose
You certainly lived a good and dedicated life
Not just like a candle in the wind
May your gentle soul rest in real perfect peace.
We will never walk alone.
Adieu my classmate, friend, colleague and Sister in the Lord
Really gone too soon.
Adieu, the darling daughter of Jibowu.
Till we meet to part no more.

"Funke, finally, I found the courage to write something here. The journey to accepting that you have left this realm was long and tortuous. Thank you for making me your friend. We did not see very often recently, but when we did, you once again were my 'Aunty Funke' and I was your 'niece'. I don't know how this our aunty-niece relationship started in Queens College, but it lasted over 30 years of our knowing each other. I will never forget you. I am so glad you are at rest with our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. That's why I'm comforted and confident that we will see each other again. Bye Aunty."
"You clearly touched many lives during your time in this life, a time that was cut much too short in the minds of all of us that knew you. I am glad to have trained with you those years past and I wish we could have met up at least one more time in this life. But I know you are resting in the bosom of the Lord, a thought that offers some consolation. Farewell gentle soul."
"Dear Funke, it is amazing how time flew by since graduation. Even though that was the last time I saw you, I felt a sense of loss and sadness hearing about your sudden passing. May God send his Holy Spirit to comfort your family and loved ones. Rest in perfect peace."
"Jives.....still remember seeing the news flash on my screen of 'the death of Funke' and I kept saying to myself please God not Jives only to open the thread and it was 'you'...Utter shock, darkness, disbelief, denial all at once. Kept thinking why all day....but we are mere mortals. Goodbye & rest in peace........."
"Rest in the peace of God. You will be sorely missed. God will grant your family, friends and all loved ones the fortitude to bear the pain of your absence."
"Rest in perfect peace"
"Funke, it's almost unbelievable but it's true....you've gone home!
I remember u way back in QC- simple quiet and with such an amiable personality, and u remained the same.
I pray God upholds your entire family, strengthen and comfort them all.
Good nite. .. ... .... ....."
It was a shocking news to hear considering your profession and your way of life. But i see this as a clear indication that the Almighty God love you most!!!
Continue to rest in the blossom of your creator."
"My dear SIL, Sissy Funke, 'twas a shock to hear of ur demise. Each time we see, twas always "e kasan aunty, how is uncle". So sad you are gone too soon. Redeemed Trinity Tabernacle parish will forever remember your contributions to the growth of the church. May your gentle soul rest in peace with the Lord, Amen"
"Dear Funke, news of your death came as a rude shock.We'll miss your smiling face and pleasant disposition.May the good Lord who has deemed it fit to take you away from us at this time grant u bliss in His Heavenly kingdom.Adieu dear one."
"Gone too soon but with indelible memories in our hearts of the times we shared while being trained at that great citadel of learning called College of Medicine. What a gentle soul....a tear for the journey"
Good nite Doc. We will see again because we believe in Christ and the resurrection. RIP at His bosom."
"Sleep well anty...goodbye.."
I do not know you a lot; but i cannot forget in a hurry, the beautiful smile with which you greeted me each time our path crossed in the office. I wish i had spoken more to you and enjoyed more of those smiles; then perhaps i wouldn't feel this sad. Continue to rest in the Bosom of the Lord."
"Shocked!!! to say the least, when I heard yesterday. But then it is comforting to know that she is with the Lord, the memory of the Just is blessed. May God comfort, family, friends, colleagues, everyone affected."
You will forever be remembered.
Adieu "my personal person" (as we call ourselves)"
"Our own dear sister Funke,
Who wont have something to say about you, it should be someone who never knew you because all those who knew you both from a distance or closely do have a lot to say about you. Your departure is indeed a sad one but the JOY in it is that you are with our Savior, Jesus Christ. We love you but God loves you more. Rest on sis till we meet to part no more. Amen. Oluwatoyin (Trinity Tabernacle)"
"Dr Jibowu!!! Your death is one too much for the entire project, for me I will miss you dearly,A great leader, caring woman and ever smiling,I have only known you for 9 months, but seem like ages.I was waiting for you to come to work on Tuesday to give you your ipele and thank you for the plenty chocolates you dropped on my desk the previous day.It is very hard to let your memories go,but I pray God grants the entire family the fortitude to bear this huge loss.Love you and pray God blesses your soul dear Dr.Funke!!"
"Her heart and her kindness will always be remembered. Dr, Olufunke Jibowu left a legacy of love, and she was a beautiful example of how to live life. Rest in perfect peace"
"..."Joy is the settled assurance that God is in control of all details of our lives, the quiet confidence that ultimately everything will be alright and the determined choice to praise God in every situation (Kay Warren).....miss you so my dearest Dr Jay ....Goodnight.
"This news came as a great shock to me. I remember our conversation on your birthday and how we planned my future wedding. You would be greatly missed Aunty Funke. May your blessed soul rest in perfect peace. Adieu Ma"
