Aunty Funmi Otuyalo,, it is with a deep heart that I write this tribute remembering the first moment we met after my resumption. I would say a beautiful lesson I learnt from the few years I knew you was your ever glowing smile in spite of the challenging situation and your uniqueness in dealing with time as a person. This really encouraged me to know that no matter the situation in this life,, there's always a reason to smile. You will forever be remembered.
Sun re ma.

Aunty Funmi,

I’ll remember you for your warm smile and always checking on me and asking after my family.
And today I choose to celebrate you and even smile because of you…

Rest on in Peace.

Dearest Funmi, the news of your passing came as a great shock. You were so selfless, loving and caring; always calling family and friends to check up on them. You will be greatly missed.

Eternal rest, grant her oh Lord.

My Dearest Aunty Funmi,

Everyone's darling!

I had a beautiful dream of you last night, you were draped in gold, you looked beautifully radiant, smiling and still giving me instructions! Typical! :-).

You lived a full life, bumpy indeed but inspiring. When I saw you less than a week to your demise, you were frail yet so strong, we were all still very much hopeful! As painful as your death and the finality of it is, I'm rest assured that you're with our maker.

Thank you for being an integral part of my of my life. I will miss you so much, your smile, your chuckle, gisting about any and everything. You fought the good fight, you finished strong and the crown of righteousness awaits you. I celebrate you and the impactful life you lived. Rest in peace darling Aunty Funmi. xoxo

Aunty Funmi, I'm happy to have come in contact with you. you care for the less privilege, always asking of my children welfare. I will surely miss our conversations.

Rest well in the bossom of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Posted by Sarah Ayilara on June 2, 2021
I will miss you dearly Aunty Funmi, always offering to sit in the reception when I was hungry or assist me with my tasks. You were unique and ever smiling.
I will miss you calling me Sandra and how I reply with Sarah and we laugh about it.

Continue to rest in the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Aunty Funmi was friendly with me from the first day I met her within and outside the office space.
She never for one day looked down on me with words or attitude.

May God grant your soul eternal rest.

HEAVEN GAINED AN ANGEL!

From the first day I resumed, Aunty Funmi always had a smile for me and everyone, she would always check up on me and ask if I'm doing well. It was just so easy to be friends with her. Lunch breaks were fun because Aunty Funmi will be there to gist with you.

I will definitely miss your calm voice and smile. Keep resting in the bosom of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Life is but a stopping place,
A pause in what’s to be,
A resting place along the road,
To sweet eternity
We all have different journeys,
Different paths along the way,
We all were meant to learn some things,
But never mean to stay…
Our destination is a place,
Far greater than we know.
For some the journey’s quicker,
For some the journey’s slow.
And when the journey finally ends,
We’ll make a great step forward,
And find an everlasting peace,
As our special reward.
To you auntie Funmi, we will surely miss,
Your kindness and soft spoken words,
Rest on dear ma.

A great person has left us. Aunty Funmi was a person who knew how to appreciate every moment of life. I remember her for her optimism and positive energy. If there is anything I have learned from the short time I was around her in Nigeria, it was how to be a good person. Being kind, considerate, loving and affectionate are great qualities that she had and shared. Your endless affection made you special and rare. I'm always amazed by how much you cared for my family. Rest now, my dear Aunty Funmi because you achieved your mission.

My Dearest Sis Funmi, you'll be fondly remembered and forever missed. Your smiles were ever so captivating and your hugs so warm.

Rest in Power my friend

Dear Aunty Funmi, you were like a sister and mother (like you would fondly refer yourself). You never stopped looking out for my spiritual and general welfare.
You truly selflessly lived.
I'm glad you knew nothing but peace and joy during your sojourn here on earth and now you are even in a better place.
Adieu my friend, my sister, my church (HOTR Benevolence dept) mother.
Posted by Stella Ehindero on June 1, 2021
Sister Funmi, the sad news of your demise was heartbreaking. You were such a nice and generous person. I remember when I had an accident in 2014, you sent me money to just to support me. That's who you were, ever supportive and kind. You always showed for every meeting/outreach at Benevolence Dept of Hotr, where you served faithfully. I have so many fond memories of you, but let me stop here. Continue to rest in the bosom of the Lord, till we meet at Jesus feet.

Dear Aunty Funmi, I shall miss your early morning visits.... you always took time to check on everyone. Thanks for being a big sis to us all. We are comforted in the knowledge that you are resting in the Lord’s bosom . Rest well

Sister Funmi was everything spectacular and amazing... she'd check up on me all the time to know if I attended vigil or came to church or didn't. I had never seen anyone so calm, sweet, patient, and quiet like still waters..... so many fond memories of you laughing and giggling.....

May you continue to rest in the bosom of our Dear Lord......


Till we reach the distant shore......
Adeus Sister Funmi!

Aunty Funmi, you have taught me a big lesson about procrastination. We planned to see and in your usual manner, you asked me to come with my husband - your friend. I will miss our banter regarding my girls and your nephews; and your office tour most mornings, genuinely wanting to know how everyone was. We will miss you but we find comfort in the knowledge that you are resting in the bosom of the Almighty.
Posted by Patience Asikhia on June 1, 2021
Sister Funmi as I always call you; Words, even the very best of words cannot pay tribute or truly capture the sense of loss that we are all feeling. I will remember you with all our memories from all the days gone before that I was privileged to share with you. It is not the years in a life that counts; It is the life in the years. I believe you are in a better place. May your soul rest in peace.

Go well and stay well....Goodbye, Sister Funmi.

Posted by Adebayo Allen on June 1, 2021
Some of us may not have known much about you but your warmth and disposition towards those who came across you is evident for all. May the Lord Jesus who knows and understands all things grant those left behind the fortitude and grace to bear this grieve and heavy loss. Till we meet at the gathering of saints. Rest in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Aunty Funmi, you were not just a colleague but an Aunty, words fail me, you were always ready to assist to see to it that the work is moving smoothly, you would be greatly missed. But I know God has better plans for you, you fought a good fight, till we meet on the resurrection morning sleep on Aunty Funmi and may your soul rest in peace.

Aunty Funmi, may your beautiful soul rest peacefully in the bosom of the Lord. Have a beautiful journey to immortality.
Posted by Andrew Oyanna on June 1, 2021
I still remember how Aunty Funmi made me feel when I just resumed at PAGI. How she would check up on everyone from top to bottom and yes, the way she spoke always just tripped me.
I'll miss her warmth and smile, gentle yet strong dispositions.
Keep smiling Aunty Funmi.

Till we meet again at Jesus' feet.
Posted by Chioma Uzoigwe on June 1, 2021
I know Aunty Funmi (as we fondly called her) as a survivor and a tireless woman who for the several years that I knew her, she kept the faith and was never weary in serving the Lord. In spite of all, she was up early and came to work early and did her administrative duties to the best her abilities.

Aunty Funmi, you fought a good fight, you kept the faith and now take your deserved rest. We will surely miss you.

May those of us on this side of the divide take a cue from the exemplary life of service to the Lord that she lived, even at the EXPERIENCE LAGOS and the welfare department of the House on the Rock where she serve tirelessly.

Posted by Bankole Adeoye on June 1, 2021
Aunty Funmi,
Thank you for always finding time to check up on everybody. Your pleasant smile will forever remain in our hearts.

Rest well in the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Olufunmilayo.......

You have run a good race, kept the fauth and are now at rest.

Ever so loving, ever so charming. "Sister Funke, e bere mi"...... Her usual way of lovingly telling me to stay in constant touch with her.

It is well. Sleep on in your sweet rest until resurrection morning. Tough to accept but then, what do we do?

Posted by Victory Efenure on May 31, 2021
Sleep Well Aunty Funmi - one day I will hear your voice again at the feet of Christ our King.
Posted by Omotoso A on May 31, 2021
Dear Aunty Funmi, you are such a shining light to many people. Thank you for all your words of encouragement and for having great confidence in me as a brother and friend, you will be greatly missed. I have great confidence that you are in the bosom of the Lord. Keep the gist of heaven for me till we meet again at resurrection.
Posted by toyin adekoya on May 31, 2021
Aunty Funmi, hard to believe you're gone. We are comforted because we knew you - your faith walk with God, your gentle spirit, your warmth. I will miss your smile - your hugs whenever I saw you, asking after my daughters and praising me for taking care of them for you. Rest in peace Aunty Funmi. Indeed, heaven has gained an angel.
Posted by Biodun Adaralegbe on May 31, 2021
I know that you have fought a good fight of faith; despite all the challenges you were very strong and determined to conquer.

We find solace in God's words and we are rest assured that you are resting in the Lord.

Adieu Sister Funmi

Sister Funmero! As I fondly called you. You were an early bird. Your movements early in the mornings made me know it was time to rise for the day. You were like a sister to me and will be missed dearly. We had our disagreements sometimes like sisters do and when we made up it was heart warming. Rest on sis Funmero!!!! You are in a better place.
Posted by Bukola Thomas on May 31, 2021
Aunty Funmi...we will miss you. We remain grateful to God for your life and all He enabled you to do. I will miss your ever caring ‘check ups’ on my children. Your hugs too.  Gently Rest in the arms of Abba Father.

Aunty Funmi, I’m so so blessed to have met and known you. Beautiful inside and outside. Ever smiling, ever offering a helpful hand, never angered or unkind, persistent in prayer and earnest in things to do with the House and people of God. I love and miss you dearly Aunty Funmi. I’m numb, but God is my comfort. See you again when Christ returns.
