Mama we miss you, you will always live in our hearts.

May the good Lord be with all of us that Mama left behind.
May you rest in the bossom of your creator, whom you worship and adored.

You laid a solid foundation of the importance of prayer in my life, ever since I was a toddler. I remember that before I went to bed in the evenings, you will lead and recite prayer requests and I will be responding to each line of the prayer saying AMEN. Same for when I got up the following morning.

I was not surprised to learn that you passed away while in the middle of prayer . It is worthy to note that not only did you pass away while in the middle of prayer, but you also pass away on the 7th day ( a number considered to be spiritual in nature in the christendom) and also on sunday – (a day considered to be a holy day in the christendom).

Adieu Iye Jide

Mama, as I fondly called her, was really dear to me.
She treated me like a daughter and not an in-law. Mama made me feel right at home from the first day I met her. She was always so warm and caring, and interested in my well being.

She actually spoiled me quite a bit, especially in her earlier years. Mama would find out what I wanted to eat and go out of her way to get it if need be. I never had the unpleasant mother-in-law experiences I had heard so much about. Mama would have little talks with me and thank me for training the grandchildren. She would share prayer requests and always end in prayer. She was a ‘mother in love’ indeed!

Mama was beautiful inside and out. She passed her good looks on to my offspring (LOL!). Mama wanted and sought the best for everyone. She was always ready to share or give if she was able. We will especially miss her weekly Sunday prayer/ blessings. We are comforted knowing you are at rest, and finally with your JESUS that you had been longing to meet for a while now.

Goodnight our angel. Heaven will be rejoicing at your presence. We will aspire to uphold your legacy and raise the next generation in Christ. Thank you for being such a blessing.

Your favorite daughter in love, Funmi

Whao! Adeiu Mama. To God be the glory for a life well spent. Mama we are missing already that your sonorous voice of prayers, which was a must for you to individuals either in our rooms or your room every day of your life. I can't forget prayers like "yio Dara fun e o, wa dagba wa dogbo, wa jeun Omo o".
What about your heart of kindness, as you don't want to see anyone of us sitting and be lost in thought, you will be asking "se ko si o" which can be many times, as you want us to be cheerful and happy, which is your own happiness too.
We thank God for your peaceful rest to His glory. Mama you are pleasant and committed to the welfare of all your Children, Grandchildren, Great Grandchildren.
*You don't see me as an inlaw's, but you took me as your child.*
I always wondered how you can still read your Bible without using glasses, God is great and merciful to you indeed.
I thank God that your journey of this life ended beautifully and you Transited Peacefully.
GOOD NIGHT MAMA.

I am grateful to the Lord for the life of my mother. We fondly called her Iye Jide. She instilled the fear of God in me from a very early age. As a child, in the elementary school, she made sure that I got to church early in the morning on Sundays to join the choir and carry the cross, in front of the choir, into the sanctuary.

When I started secondary school, our father died. She became a single mother to six children. As a widow, she took care of us as best as she could. She doubled her efforts like the proverb 31 woman to care for her children.

My mother was a prayerful woman. She spent most of her aged years praying and supporting her children, caring for her grandchildren. She prayed about everything. I was always confident that she was praying whenever I went on missions.

Iye Jide, you had been looking forward to being with the Lord for sometime now. I am going to miss our Sunday, Sunday phone conversation and prayers. I thank you for waiting for me to see you on video call on the Sunday, before you went to be with the Lord. Rest In Peace and in the bosom of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Your Son
Oluwole Oladute.

Mama,
I'll forever cherish all the moments we spent together. You had such a caring heart and naturally made each one of us as your grandchildren and beyond feel special to you. I am so grateful to have been blessed by your constant prayers and unconditional love.
May your soul rest in perfect peace Grandma.

I still can’t believe mama is gone. I don’t know why I’ve always thought she will always be here with us. She lived a very long life and I will always remember her for the very special person she was. She was a woman of faith, hardly will you find her without her bible and she loves to pray; her joy every night is to round up the grandkids to pray with her. Rest In Peace Mama Ipele.

Mama ipele hmmmmmmm just like that. I will always remember your prayers for me my husband and my children. You are very strong and energetic woman, caring and loving granny. Since I've known you, You never fell sick. Like my husband always say WONDER WOMAN we

My mother was a prayerful woman who made it as a point of duty to pray before going to bed in the evening. Kneeling down and praying to God was also her first routine whenever she gets up first thing in the morning. During her evening and morning devotional prayers, she would commit all her children, grandchildren and great-grand children into the hands of Christ. She also extends the prayer to all her relatives home and abroad. She always round up her daily prayers by asking God to do more than what she has asked in Jesus name.

I will miss you Mama Ipele very much, but what I will miss mostly about you is your great personality, and when our mom is spanking us you're always scolding her for doing so.
I will miss how you always give us gifts anytime you're around.
Rest in peace Mama Ipele.

Sweet Mother, I can't still believe you are gone. I thank God for my brother Wole who called your line at an unusual time on that faithful sunday when your breathing suddenly changed and we started praying while holding your hands before you gave up the ghost.

I thank God for your life because you stood by us after we lost our father 50 years ago and you played the role of both father and mother (obirin bi okunrin).

A prayerful and hardworking woman, full of strength till the end. Thank you for being there for us through out your life time. Sun re o yemi.

Your Lovely Daughter, Olabimpe Adedoyin

My dear sweet grandma. Even though we were worlds apart somehow I’ve always felt your spirit near me. Even now that you are gone your presence still resonates through me.

More than anything, I remember the joy I experienced every time I came to visit you. Although we never spoke the same language outwardly we did on the inside and that was all that mattered. Even in our quietest moments a lot was said.

Thank you for the selfless love you showed me, the many gifts, kind thoughts, and wonderful prayers. Never to be forgotten and forever in my heart.

Love always,

Kemi

Grandma,
One person I can rely on, a shining star in the dark who lit the way with her kind heart. You truly were a unique and special one-of-a-kind person who stood by me whenever I needed you. I will miss your prayers, kindness, advice, your always enabling me to know your dialect. Mama was appreciative of any little thing and won’t tolerate laziness or uncleanliness. I envy your strength, your love for the word of God (She doesn’t miss the Sunday evening Pastor Adeboye preaching) and your intelligence. I will miss you so much mama ‘Pele.
Sleep well

Tribute to mother.
That you are gone is still a surprise to me. I was with you just a few hours to your departure and you never showed any sign that you will go so soon. I will miss your early morning prayers. You are a prayerful woman that never condones laziness and indiscipline. A generous giver.
Sleep on mother.

Your daughter.

When I remember mama, I remember a strong, smart, intelligent, kind and generous woman. Mama Ipele- as we fondly called her is a rare gem. Having lived with her for a long while, I can say she grew from being a disciplinarian during my teenage years (we were always scared of her "oshan" i.e whip) to a very soft hearted and sweet grand mother.

She pampered everyone and was so generous to a fault! One thing I admired the most about her is her strength and wisdom even till her old age. Mama remembers everything and everyone, she loved to wash her clothes herself; if someone else washes it, she goes back to re-wash.

Also, after every morning devotion by 6am, while we crawled ourselves back to bed, mama would be out doing her morning exercises. She took particular care of her health, never joked with with her multivitamins, blood tonic, ensure shakes, milo, peak milk and maltina. I will surely miss you mama Ipele. Rest in Peace.

Mama, I still cannot believe you are gone and I cannot call you or see you on video call with Whatsapp anymore. All your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren will miss you. I grew up looking forward to your visits from Ipele with goodies, your delicious cooking and life lessons you taught me growing up. I know you lived a good life. You will be sorely missed but I know you are gone to a better place in heaven Sun re...

I lived with Mama Ipele almost all my life that she became my second mother with her love and discipline instilled in me.

Mama wakes up early, comes to my room to pray for me, mentions all her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren everyday in her prayers, did her morning exercise, ensured her clothes and environment was clean, agile and rarely fall sick till her old age. She finds it odd seeing someone sleep in the afternoon that she ensures to ask if you're okay.

She was kind, generous even from the little she had, appreciative, had a retentive memory in terms of names, faces and good with figures (she can't be duped).

I can write a book on mama cause the love and care she showed me all my life was motherly. I am grateful and will forever miss you My Mama Ipele.
Rest in Peace.

"Mama Oko", Iye Jide" as you were fondly called by my own mother when she was alive of which I too emulated. I remember in those days when I follow you to the farm where your house was built on presently, you would be given me words of advice, narrated stories of life experiences.
Mama was a kind and wonderful woman who filled everyone she knew with warmth and joy and her generousity was superb. Since you had left Ipele 've not been opportuned to see u again but we talked on phone.
Mama Oko how I wish to see you back to Ipele life, but God knows better than we thought. Rest on "Iye Jide till we meet at Jesus feet. We ki gede oghon ule re yon ghon. Good night

Mama Ipele, as fondly called by everyone lived a blessed life. She was kind to a fault, always granting my every needs and request.

She was a prayerful grandmother who studied God's word everyday. She was always the first to wake up in the house, she will come knock on my room door and pray for me. She did this everyday even till her last day.

I thank God she lived an active life. She remembered everybody's name and face no matter how long she had seen the person. She had a sharp and retentive memory and she rarely fell sick.

So many words I have to say about this great woman. She was a second mother to me. I will forever miss you my Mama Ipele. Adieu.

Your demise has left a big vacuum in us which can not be filled, the most important thing about human life on earth is how well one spends his or her life before death.

Mama ? Your memory is a blessing to all who came across you while on earth.

Eternal rest grant her oh Lord and May the perpetual light shine on her Amen. Rest in perfect peace mama. Kikelomo Egwim (née Daraloye)

her Life

Madam Comfort Afinbiowo Biography

Madam Comfort Afinbiowo Oladutemu; nee Olugbile Ojongbede was born in Ipele, Owo local government, on July 21st 1923. She was born into the family of late Pa Abel Olugbile Ojongbede and late Madam Felicia Arobo Ojongbede of blessed memories. She was the third of the six children of the late Pa and Madam Olugbile.

She was married to the late Mr. Johnson Oladutemu. The union was blessed with (six) children. (She did her best to raise them in the fear of the Lord, as her husband passed on much earlier in life when their last child was a toddler.)

She was a cotton farmer and cloth weaver, a trade she learned from her mother at a relatively young age. She went into full-time cloth weaving trade as a profession. She was the go-to person for Aso-Oke until her retirement. (She devoted much of her retirement, to helping take care of some of her many grandchildren.)

She was a devoted Christian during her lifetime, as evidenced by her regular church attendance, and active participation in church activities. She was a prayerful woman. Her routine included praying before going to bed at night and waking up very early in the morning to pray on her knees, until day break. (Even recently in her 90's, she requested for an alarm clock to help wake her up to keep her daily devotions.)

She passed on to eternity with the Lord on February 7th 2021. She was survived by her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, nephews, nieces and other extended family members.

She will be gravely missed by all those she left behind.

Tribute to Mama

Shared by Timothy Oladute on February 21, 2021
In all sincerity, I remember my relationship with Mama as one full of prayer and the reassurance of love.
Regardless of a partial language barrier, I understood (and my Dad would translate) Mama was consistently praying prayers of safety, support, grace, and anointing for not only myself but Mamas entire family.* 
Whenever I had the chance to spend time with Mama over the years; from infancy to my adult life, I have memories of her intentionally nurturing and comforting me with her soft and affectionate touches.
It is nothing short of a blessing to be Mamas grandchild.
-Timothy Tomi Oladute

Favorite show

Shared by Olumuyiwa Omolayo on February 18, 2021
I remember back in the late 80s Mama used to love Sunday Rendezvous and never missed it on Sundays. The show was the Nigerian version of Soul Train. She loved the dancers, their fashion and their hair styles.  She also loved the commercials by Kessingsheen Hair Cream that also sponsored the show.
