Let the memory of Fadesola be with us forever.



JUNE 2, 1970 – FEBRUARY 9, 2019

Mrs. Fadesola Omolade Akinrelere (nee Aladesulu) was born on June 2nd, 1970 in Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria to the family of late Pa Stephen Olajide Aladesulu and her mother, Mrs. Phebean Fibisola Aladesulu (nee Olawoye).

The fourth of six children, Fadesola started her primary school education at Local Authority Primary School 2 in Akure, then finished at the Ijapo Estate Primary School. She then proceeded to Federal Government Girls College, Akure (Feggicolla, 88 set). She attended the College of Education, Ikere Ekiti, obtained a National Certificate of Education (NCE) in 1993 and then obtained her Bachelor of Education (B. Ed.) degree in Accounting at Ogun State University (OSU), Ago-Iwoye in 1997.

Fadesola married her darling, Oluwafemi on June 19th, 1999 in Akure, Ondo State. They lived in Ibadan and their union is blessed with three beautiful children: Oluwasemilore, Oluwatomi and Oluwatamilore. She accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior in 1986 and never looked back. Together they worshiped at The Stone Church, Mokola, Ibadan under the leadership of Pastors Alexandra and Abiodun Adegboye and then the Vine Branch Church under the leadership of Pastors Sola and Bridget Kolade where they worshiped until they left Nigeria.

She was an entrepreneur extraordinaire and a visionary, she founded a children’s boutique, "Femak Boutique" in 2002 and subsequently established a school, "Playworkz International School" to fulfill the educational needs of children in  Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria on December 5th 2005 with just two children, her daughter, Oluwatamilore and a friend’s son.

Today, Playworkz stands tall as a testament of her work ethics and vision, currently catering to over a hundred pupils ranging from ages 2 months (Creche) to 10 years (Elementary) as well as over 35 staff members.

A very focused leader, who never relented regardless of her physical well-being, passionate, driven and determined, she forged ahead and continued to impact lives in her area of expertise, sphere of life and circle of influence.

She was an ardent believer in the miraculous healing power of God, a blessing she enjoyed many times over and over again, one of which resulted in her coming to the U.S for medical care. God graciously made a way for her husband, who left everything behind in Nigeria to care for her, and their children to come and spend the last wonderful year of her life together as a family unit. 

While here in the U.S she worshiped with the family at the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Jesus House Baltimore Parish under the leadership of Pastors Tola and Kofo Odutola.

The sudden and unexpected turn of event was not envisaged, her vision board and aspirations remain very impressive. Fancy registering for a one-year College course to commence on the 30th of January 2019! WHO KNEW? GOD KNOWS BEST!

Through the journey of years of life challenges, her faith in God remained unwavering and she served the lover of her soul, JESUS, until the very end. A gallant warrior, at home with the saints in the grandstand of heaven, on to your reward now!

Fadesola is survived by her husband, three children, aged mother, brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, aunties, uncles, cousins, in-laws and friends.

Dear Mrs. Fadesola Akinrelere,
It has been so difficult to say goodbye. I keep imagining that I will see you come through the doors at Playworkz with your beautiful smile, in a gorgeous dress and speaking words that express your child-centered, pragmatic and kind approach to matters. You loved the children so much - it was easy to see. You devoted your heart to the children and the school.
You fought well to stay on. I miss you. We miss you. We believe that you are resting in the Lord and trust that we will see you again. Rest on Mrs. Fadesola Akinrelere.

Fadesola, you lived a good life. Though as humans, we may think that your departure at this time is early, God knows best. Rest on, dear sister. May the Lord keep those you left behind.

Good night Sister Fade.
Life is not measured in the number of years lived, but in the lives of people positively changed by one’s presence.
You lived, you loved, you fought and God decided it was time for you to rest.
Sleep on beloved; we do not mourn like those who have no hope.
We will surely meet again.
Good night sis

Big mummy, I can't believe you are gone. I was shocked and sad when my Daddy told us on Sunday morning. I wish I had seen or heard from you before your call to glory.
The last time I saw you was about two years ago. You told me not to rush to JSS1 but to wait till I am ready. You were very nice to us.
I will really miss you.
May your soul rest in peace. Amen.
Damilola (Niece).
