Aw Margaret never forgotten, she may be out of sight but never out of mind.
I hold her in my heart as she so generously held me in the time I knew her.
My neighbours often mention her and what a gratious and inspiring woman she was and indeed is as her soul lives on in the heart of the jesus she had such devotion to and believe in.

Never forgotten Margaret

Margaret, truly a pearl of great price, let her gentle spirit (her graciousness, unselfishness, mercy, tolerance, and patience) be known to all people- she lived Philippians 4:5 so well & I know "The Lord is near" to all who miss her greatly as well as to her where she is with Him. May Emmanuel wrap each one in His strength, comfort & loving care in the days to come Xxx

I was very saddened to hear about Margaret’s passing and my sincere condolences to her family and wide circle of friends. We will all miss her. I count it a rich blessing to have got to know Margaret through her valued membership of Transform Our World. Margaret was excited by the vision of Transform Our World to see our world changed and blessed by believers seeking to fulfil the great commission to disciple the nations with the teachings of Jesus.

Margaret was dignified, joyful and full of faith. It was very obvious that she loved Jesus deeply and sought to follow Him as a committed disciple, and we valued her insights and contributions, and her prayers in our meetings. I always loved when Margaret prayed, because she was an amazing pray-er. Her prayers were deep, heartfelt and anointed. She was a committed intercessor and prayer warrior.

Margaret's faith has not disappointed her. There can be no question about where she is now. She is in the Presence of God. Margaret has been promoted to the 'cloud of witnesses' referred to in Hebrews chapter 12 which, the scripture says, 'surround us' and encourage us to fix our eyes on Jesus, and to run the race. Margaret is today in that cloud of witnesses, so run the race, with Jesus as your finishing line, the author and perfecter of your faith. God bless and comfort you all, and especially Margaret's family members, in your time of loss. As for Margaret, she is in paradise, where you will join her some day.

TRIBUTE TO OUR ELECTRIC NWANYI.
Mama Jimmy as we all called you,the sad news of your death was shocking and unbelievable, the list news we ever expected to hear. I never knew or heard that you were sick, talkmore of not making it.
I grew up knowing you with your inviting smile that gives hope and that very smile helped to reduce tension and brought joy to many homes.
After the death of Mama Nnukwu, I got to know Mama Jimmy better,I started staying with her and i discovered that she could give out anything to bring joy to a depressed heart.Many Nibo women saw her as their mentor and role model,her doors were always opened for people, ready to listen and help,no wonder she became a woman leader in the town.
Despite her beauty, career as a seasoned Banker and Bank manager with Union Bank Awka and later, pioneer manager of the community bank, which she single handedly nurtured, Mama Jimmy never missed any church activities ,she participate in all the church events and no wonder,she was made a lay leader and membership of various committees in the the Anglican faith.She never joked with her faith,she always created time for the things of the Lord.
Mama Jimmy never discriminated against anyone,our house was a home for all, she ensured that any one that visited never went home the same,a lot to eat and drink, always ready to feed the hungry and support the needy.
Mama Jimmy, my wife and kids are still waiting for your next visit you promised them,after your last visit, they could not stop asking after you,because you charmed them with your smiles and love.
Mama Jimmy, you tought me to always believe in myself,that hard work and prayer are the only way. Thank you so much for standing up for me on many occasions, I also remember the wonderful reception you always accord my friends anytime I was around for weekend from school.
Mama Jimmy, we can never question God over your demise and we should also not mourn like those who have no hope,your demise has created a big vacuum in the family,but God in heaven will give us the strength and the Will to carry on.
Mama Jimmy, Good Night, we love you so much but God loves you the most. Please say hello to my uncle,my friend and my father ,Papa Jimmy.

Sister Margaret was such a great help to the Victory bookshop. She was always willing and volunteering to assist.

We are eternally grateful for the help we got from her because of her love for the word of the Lord and her kind heart to help.

Her love for the word of the Lord also made her always available to attend Bible Schools in Victory.

We will miss her and we will be forever grateful for all the support we received from her, she was consistent, faithful, reliable, and dependable.


Blessings,
Daniel on behalf of Victory bookshop and Victory Bible School

Sis.Margaret will be missed.
She was a caring mother and a dear friend to all who knew her.
She was beautiful inward and outward, humble,truly transformed ,faithful ,kind, peaceful and full of God's love. 
I recall the glitter in her eyes when I told her that victory church had been reopened following the easing of pandemic restrictions.
She just loved God so much that even through the difficulties she experienced she always wanted to be in the midst of God's people to enjoy the worship and listen to God's word.
It energised her spirit.
I didn't know she will go this soon
We had gone for a drive after church on Sunday 20th of June 2021  just for sight seeing as she had requested .
She just wanted to look around and get some fresh air.
As we drove around we stopped at various brethren's homes just to say hello. I didn't realise she was saying her final goodbyes.
I know she is in heaven resting with our Lord Jesus Christ where she has no more suffering.
Rest in peace my dear sis Margaret 
Your memory is forever blessed  
I miss you sis Margaret.
Love you loads
Dr Rita

In Loving memory of Margaret Ezekwe, an award worthy of great honour. To me, she was simply aunty Margaret a true mother in every sense of the word both spiritually and naturally. She was a woman of great faith, who loved the Lord with all of her heart. Aunty Margaret was indeed a general in the kingdom of God yet of such humble spirit. She was faithful in her service to the Lord through her commitment and active involvement in her local church and various Christian organisations. Aunty Margaret was full of compassion and truly altruistic in her every day life, always preferring others before self. She would light up the room with her smile, her sweet and gentle spirit. She was a fervent intercesor who enjoyed soaking herself in prayer, praise worship and the word of God. Aunty Margaret, you are loved and will be greatly missed. You run your race with persevering faith, finished your course and stepped into glory. Love you always in Christ Daisy Simwawa

From Walter Anachebe's family
THE EULOGY OF A NOBLE WOMAN PER EXCELLENCE. Alas !!!, a godly and lovely mother has gone. She was a special woman of reputation. She is highly regarded by those who come across her. A peaceful and joyful mother to the core. She was the role model in her time. A beautiful and elegant lady with appropriate emulated dress code. She was among the first committed Welcome Team ( ushers ) of St Matthew' s Anglican Church Nibo, Anambra State, Nigeria from 1971 to 2000. She was a committed and devoted christian. She was the Church Accounting  Officer and Treasure. She was trustworthy and a giver. She helped the less privilege in our kindred especially the women with the support of her husband. Being an Oyibo woman, she did not discriminate. For the foreigners that come to Nibo, their home was the first point of call. She had good communication skills so she rappors well with the villagers. She was fondly called Mama Jimmy. Her husband and children cherished her blessed virtuous mother. The late husband Barr. James Ezekwe on one conversation said that he commends his lovely wife and wishes he will die before her, that he cannot manage any other woman. Adieu Mama Jimmy Bon Voyage Mrs Maggret Ezekwe. Ezigbo NNE nodimma,, Your memory will remain evergreen.

Tribute For a Refined Soul, a Beautiful Lady.

It is hard to say goodbye to our Maggie! A beautiful and accomplished lady. A refined soul. Always gentle, dignified, and compassionate. Forever with a kind word for every situation. She was for us in the Ezekwe family, an institution; an indestructible link to the family as we knew it - a cherished link to so many precious memories. We will miss her greatly.

May her darling soul continue to rest in absolute peace.

Dearest Auntie 'Mama Jimmy', it's still hard to believe that we will not be seeing you again. The last time you visited Nigeria, you promised you would call again at our residence in Abuja in your next visit.
Auntie, from the first day we met, you made me feel like we had always known each other. Thank you for your warmth and love for my family. We are not hopeless because we believe in eternal life and we know where you stood where Christ Jesus is concerned. Rest on Auntie until we meet to part no more. Adieu.

TRIBUTE TO MY BELOVED FRIEND MRS. MARGARET EZEKWE
I still can't believe that you're gone. You were like a sister to me, the memories that we shared will forever remain in my heart. Margaret my friend you're a loving, cheerful and hard working person. You dedicated your life for the service of humanity, you always make sure that everyone around you is happy. You and I served as church wardens at Saint Matthews Anglican Church in the 1970s. You served the church as a great church treasurer until 1999, when you left to Ireland. You were a bank manager of Union Bank of Awka and Okoh for many years. I will miss you. Rest in the bosom of the Lord. Amen.

TRIBUTE TO A SPECIAL WOMAN
Nwunye Lawyer
Mama Jimmy,
Mama Yvonne. The monikers are many depending on where you are coming from. Many in Nibo,especially those blessed with the opportunity to have known her closely,feel honored to have known her. It is almost impossible to describe her. A woman who is comfortable both at the acme of sophistication, and at the lowest levels of cultural accommodation. She was comfortable as a banker; as a top Lawyer’s wife;as a servant in the church. Then when Ezeawulu unveiled its *IJELE*, it turned out that she was both *Nne Nmonwu and Nne Egwu* . The whole arena exploded in ovation of appreciation and wonder. Her social intelligence, and it’s corollary,social competence,are nonpareil. She was certainly one of a kind and painfully we now have to speak of her in the past tense. We all share in this most juddering loss. May The Almighty replace her,for her inner family, and for us all. And may she find deserved eternal peace in the bosom of the Lord.

Mama Jimmy, you were such a great woman that touched many lives. Everyone that had an encounter with you testified that you were good. Ibu ezigbo mmadu. You lived your life and answered the Lord’s call. Painful as it, but we submit to the will God. Anyi ama eje ogu na be chukwu. We take comfort that the Lord that called you will never leave a vacuum to your loved ones.

My condolences to your children Jimmy, Johnnie, Yvonne. Andy, your grandchildren and the entire Ezekwe family. The Lord God that Mama Jimmy served all through her life will provide the required comfort and strength to the loved ones she left behind.

Rest In Peace

Aunty Margaret was a wonderful mother.
My first meeting with her was when she came to Abuja together with Aunty Sarah and they stayed with me and my family at our house in Kubwa.
It was a memorable visit.
Subsequently, John and his wife Joy would do the same when they visited Abuja until they finally got married.
We kept in touch on the phone and it was always great talking with her on the phone.
My last conversation with her was when my vice principal in college - Fr John Dunne, was trying to send me some money for my daughter's school fees in Cyprus. When he couldn't transfer the money through the money transfer agents it was Aunty Margaret that came to my rescue. Fr John Dunne eventually got in touch with her and made the transfer to her account and she sent me the naira equivalent.
I will miss her.
Eternal rest grant to her o Lord and let perpetual light shine upon her. Amen.
