ForeverMissed
This memorial website was created in memory of our beloved Mother, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother, MRS MOJISOLA FOLAKE OYEFEKO (nee Akintobi), 85 years old, born on July 26, 1935, and passed away on June 18, 2021. We will remember her forever.

IN FOND MEMORY OF “MAMA MARGARET”
I commiserate with the Oyefeko and Akintobi Families on the passing on to glory of Mama Margaret Oyefeko who we loved so much, but God loves her best.
I was privileged to have known Mama Margaret in dual capacity over the years: firstly, as a foremost executive secretary at UAC of Nigeria where she worked directly with my husband (Duro Oyinlola of blessed memory) for more than a decade; and secondly as a relation of our erstwhile and dear landlord (Pa Adegboyega, also of blessed memory) - a caring and concerned lover of younger people who was always interested in our progress as a young couple then. The relationship between our families was finally cemented by God Almighty Himself, when our own ‘Deolu Oyinlola got married to Mama’s dear daughter, Yemisi.
Mama Margaret was a diligent, caring and honest worker. She managed her office so well that it was a delight for all to associate with her even after she retired. She was a humble, frank and loving big sister, reliable and confidential. She exhibited so many Godly qualities that made one trust and love her all the more. She was positively predictable, a quality that has become rare in this present age.
I thank God she knew how much we appreciated her for who she was while on this earth. To mention Mama Margaret’s qualities now is simply to let others appreciate and learn from her noble life on earth. Also, I thank God for Pa Solomon Temitayo Oyefeko, her husband of blessed memory, who encouraged her to showcase these qualities, for he was just as noble a character himself.
One is assured she is resting fully with God who she walked with and worked for all her life.
I pray that all of us still living will ensure our lives reflect our relationship with God, our Lord and Saviour. My prayer is that God will continue to take care of her household and keep her legacy ever shining.
E ku ara fe ara ku.
God bless you.

My Beloved Grandma

My grandma was truly phenomenal…Stylish, Fearless, Strong, Kind, Intelligent and not afraid to say the truth at all times.

I will forever cherish the last moments that I had with her in June 2021, when we stayed together and she was able to bond with her great grandchildren- Fewa & Sowa

Well, she’s always been my rock. She made me eat healthy foods when I was younger by making them interesting with various additives, just to ensure that I was healthy & had a balanced diet.

She was with all of us in sickness, in health, good times, bad times, happy times, at all our birthdays (whenever we were in the same city) with a card, prayers & a white envelope, even up till the week when she passed!

Full of advice, she was a guiding light that helped me navigate life successfully. She was also very fashionable. Before an outing one day, she took me to a corner & showed me how to apply lipstick properly to ensure that the color got to the inner corners of my lips.

She always wanted all of us to look good & would inspect our outfits including my mum & aunty Yemisi’s from top to bottom & then give the nod of approval. All I had to do to check if my outfit was okay, was to look at her face!

She was also a disciplinarian. She did not hesitate to correct anyone, and I mean anyone!

A big hole has been left in my heart as a result of her departure but I know that she’s resting in heaven with my darling granddaddy.

She spent her last days reading her Bible, digging through the scriptures & watching over her great-grandkids.

You will forever remain in my heart grandma, I know that you are looking down at us with grandpa from heaven & smiling.

Thank you for all your love, sacrifices, and for making me a better and well rounded person. I will see you again in heaven. I love you ❤️ ❤️

Love,
Your 1st granddaughter- Bunmi x

TRIBUTE TO MY DEAR MUM
I thank God for the life of my dear mother, Mrs. Margaret Folake Mojisola Oyefeko.
I don’t even know where to start from because I really cannot believe that I will never see her in this world again. As a child, from a very young age, I remember her as being extremely strict and firm. I was trained to cook before I was 10 and to do several chores and as such there is hardly any kind of work that I cannot do now. She also taught me how to read the Bible, how to pray and how to depend on God no matter what situation I was faced with.
My mother was a strong woman, a committed Christian, a true friend, a loving mother, very jovial but frank, very honest and a real disciplinarian, who never spared the rod when the situation arose.  I am grateful to her for the discipline and penchant for hard work which she instilled in me.
Mummy believed in her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and was committed to the work of the Lord right up to the end of her life. She enjoyed studying the Bible and reading several Christian books. Infact while going through her things recently I was amazed at all the Bible verses and words of exhortation she had recorded in her various little books. I intend to keep them to encourage me with my spiritual growth.
I will really miss chatting and sharing with her. She had so much experience to learn from. She was full of wisdom
Besides being a strong Christian, she was a socialite, she loved parties particularly those hosted by her Christian brethren, friends and family members. She was very generous and supportive to those in need. After she passed on, I saw some envelopes in her bag which she wanted to send to different individuals and I am still trying to locate some of them up till now.
Mummy never discriminated against anyone and was comfortable chatting and laughing with her helpers. They ate the same meals, watched films together and she always encouraged and supported them. However, she would not tolerate indiscipline. If you had a problem and you discuss it with her, she had a way of making it seem so trivial that at the end of the day your spirit would be lifted.
She loved her friends and family and enjoyed talking to them over the phone and cracking jokes. She was very caring and supportive, particularly to my son, who needed a lot of encouragement whenever he had challenges. Thanks to God and to her, he will be graduating from the University this year. They loved each other so much. She really taught us so many lessons about life. She was a praying woman who remembered each and everyone of us daily in her prayers.
Mummy loved dressing well. Her shoes, bag and gele even her necklace always had to match. She loved her powder and lipstick even at 85. Right from her days at U.A.C. she was always neat and looked good all the time. If she should see one not looking good or improperly dressed, she would not hesitate to chastise you, and had no apologies for that.
She was always ready to support her friends, society and family and would travel long distances to attend their functions. She was also a person who was always ready to defend anyone she felt was being victimized.
She loved her husband, Solomon Temitayo Oyefeko very dearly, and we wondered how she would cope without him after he passed on in 2015, but the Lord gave her strength. She used to fall very ill a lot then, and was admitted into the hospital on a few occasions, but the Lord did not call her home then. She always managed to pull through, and we believed that she would live much longer than she did.
Her passing on Friday June 18, 2021 was unexpected. She was with me on my birthday that week, she accompanied me to my church, attended Sunday School well prepared and had communion. She also attended a late friend’s service of songs. She was so full of life only for her to fall ill suddenly and two days later she went to be with the Lord.
It is consoling that we were there with her in the hospital when she passed on, we were around her praying and singing and hoping for a miracle but in the midst of it all, it pleased the Lord to call his dear daughter home at a good age of 85. She had good children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, who she all bonded with, so what else can we say but to thank the Lord.
I will really miss my Mummy, she was great. I even wished I had some of her strong attributes but then we all can’t be the same.
Mummy I miss you, I love you. We all love you, but God loves you more. I cry quietly now and again but I thank God for the life and the sweet memories I have of her. I am glad that she was happy and at peace till she died. Rest in peace in the bossom of the Lord dear Mummy till we meet again at Jesus feet. Good night Mrs, Margaret Folake Mojisola Oyefeko (Mama Oye) my one and only super mum.

The Passing - On to Glory of ‘Mama Oyee’ as popularly called or ‘Mama Eto’ to LADIES CRUSADERS SOCIETY, came as a shock to us all. She attended an event in the Church, hale and hearty, barely three days before her demise.

In all her days and ways, she stood firm in her Christian Faith and Baptist heritage. She was upright, steadfast, straightforward and outspoken; she would always say it as she saw it. Her views and opinion were respected and often accepted.

A very loving ‘Egbon’ to me personally, since we first met when I joined Yaba Baptist Church early 1970 and discovered a connection through her Egba relative who was my sister-in-law. She and her elder brother, Deacon S. Akintobi of blessed memory took to, and ‘adopted’ me as their own ‘kid sister’ ever since. She was always caring and generous towards me and my family.
Mama Oyefeko will also be remembered for her keen sense of humour; even now after her passing, I cannot help but dissolve into chuckles at those pointed wisecracks of hers.

A beautiful soul indeed, she was blessed with with a close-knit nuclear family and adored by her late husband, ‘Baba Oyee’, caring children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

She will be sorely missed by all whose life she touched, including the Ladies Crusaders Society of Yaba Baptist Church.

ADIEU, beloved sister in CHRIST. The LORD our God be Praised forever more. Amen!

MY OTHER MOTHER!

My other mother welcomed me into her family with open arms. 



I can attest to her godliness and goodness, over the 27 or so years that I knew her.



I always felt very close to her and saw her as a mother, while she treated me like her son.



I related to her freely; such that, whenever we went visiting (or vice versa), we lightheartedly debated subjects as diverse as politics, current affairs and religion – without her trying to impose a worldview, as is the wont of many a Nigerian (an attribute that she shared with her equally liberal and accommodating other half: Baba Oye, of blessed memory).



My mother-in-law had a huge heart, a caring spirit, and a deep, religious and spiritual core.



She will always be remembered for the love that she spread to others through her kind gestures and boundless generosity; she was steadfast in ministering to the needs of others.



How can I ever forget someone who was constantly at my bedside when I went under the knife in 1998?



To underscore her munificent disposition: Mama Oye remembered every birthday anniversary of mine since my “adoption” as her son, and she personally delivered a card, as well as a thoughtful gift on each of those anniversaries - without fail. 



“Mama Eto” (the “organizer” sobriquet she answered to, which captured her essence to a T) was a cheerful soul that effortlessly combined sociability with service in God’s vineyard. She exuded good humour and remarkable bonhomie.



Mama Oye possessed nice rhythm, and danced with stylish grace; especially, during the yearly Family Harvest Thanksgiving of a church that was exceedingly close to her heart: Yaba Baptist Church.



The powerful praise/worship/prayer sessions she conducted in that flowery, inimitable style of hers – whenever and wherever we gathered as a family - shall live forever in my memory.



In her daughter, my wife, I see Mama Oye’s legacy of a home-builder, a godsend and an unusually selfless individual.



I assert with all the emphasis I can muster, that her passing represents, for me, a deep personal loss of a friend (word not used lightly), an adviser, a guide and a confidant.



I had the best mother-in-law the world has ever known: she was mom to me, and she and I had a wonderful relationship in the years I have been married to her daughter.



Finally, all of her sterling qualities aforementioned notwithstanding, my mother-in-law did not hesitate to call people to order, whenever she felt, as it were, that they crossed the line.



She also had the courage of her convictions and stuck to whatever she believed was right, appropriate or needful.



Her legacy is rare, and will endure.



May the good Lord take her onto Himself and comfort those of us she left behind; even as we look forward to His promised resurrection.



And, may her memory be a blessing.



Adeolu Oyinlola.

Words, the right words, and thoughts are sometimes, or oft times difficult to put down on paper concisely and in the correct perspective, but memories, emotions and feelings never seem to fade or diminish.

I remember my mother as an exponent of tough undiluted love, love not held back but tempered in steel, love unadulterated but couched in strict discipline and expected compliance.

My mother (wife of beloved Baba Oyee) was the enforcer, she would not tolerate any form of slackness, indiscipline or the foibles of youthful exuberance or being spoilt, unlike my father who was to most intents and purposes, the one who leant backwards and smothered us with his soft patriarchal warmth - not my mother (until she began to mellow in the later years of our lives).

And so it is she I thank profusely for making me who I am today, someone who has been able to weather various storms and viscicitudes of life - a product (or a work-in-progress) of tough love. And I am eternally grateful.

Her tongue lashing, counselor and spiritual sacrifices on bended knee in private has to the most part kept me and my dear siblings on the right track. Not to talk of the many people who have crossed her path over the years.

Even two weeks ago, I got an anecdotal insight about her from a 78 year old Professor of Psychology ( Prof. Akin Odebunmi) who knew her growing up in Abeokuta - he called her a warrior queen. Fearless.

My mother never minced her words (even if I didn't agree with them), she would tell you as she felt and expected you to fall in line..... And you had better. Real tough love, love being the ultimate guiding principle.

I remember when I had to repeat my Form 2 ( year 2) in secondary school because I had failed my Yoruba exam woefully (3%). Next session she would come home from work at about 5 p.m through out the year and drill me on my ' Alawiye' till 6.30 p.m. Only then would she consider any other chores like dinner. Thankfully, I scored 45% in my promotion exam to proceed to the next class.

It was she that made me and Dupe learn how to cook basic meals like rice and beans at the age of 10 or 11, because she wasn't able to come back home when we closed from school. Thanks to her I am no slouch in the kitchen - I actually love cooking.

My mother prayed me straight. Even in those years of rebellion when I was too big to receive a slap or the cane, she was wise and loving enough to commit me to God.

She was cherished by family and friends. Her forthrightness, warmth, liberality was outstanding. Her friends and life's companions in the Ladies Crusaders of Yaba Baptist Church will bear me witness, not to talk of her extended family. Without a doubt she will be sorely missed.

Come to think of it ........... my beloved mum took me by surprise. I thought she would live to a 100 years old, she was so vibrant and full of life - even to the time she departed so unexpectedly.

I thank the Lord for giving me the Mother He gave me. Her memory and good deeds are indelibly etched in our hearts and minds.

Thankfully, her great grand daughter (Zikora) shares the same birthday with her. What a wonderful memorial!

Mama Oyee - what a wonder you were!

Thank you and good night. We will definitely be rejoicing together in heaven at a later date.

From the heart with love,

Your son .

celebrate you today while thanking God for your life and for letting you cross my path in life (1979-2022) 50+ years.

In your own ways, you are kind, caring, loyal, fair in all dealings, bold to stand your conviction and beliefs. Your fearlessness earned you the position of chairperson Welfare Committee in our society, Ladies Crusader, which you loved and served so very well that we refer to you so Mama Eto. My dear sister, Moji, we shall miss you at your regular devotion to church programs, senior citizens meeting, lunch hour weekly fellowship.

Moji (my sister) there is clearly 4 years between us and we relate well and cordially with each other. You always brought joy and laughter. There was never a dull moment with you. I will miss your company so much. Moji (my sister), i heartily thank God for your life. You lived well, joyfully, peacefully and charitably and above all, you were contended with life generally. Who will not be contended with a husband like Late Eng Temitayo Oyefeko, blessed with lovely children and grand children all living with their families. 

Finally, let it be said that my sister (Moji Folake Oyefeko) lived well, enjoyed the beautiful family life she was blessed with. Good wife good mother, good grandmother. Now my children, grandchildren, siblings, family members, home & abroad , and my very self , bid you farewell as your soul keeps marching on to the promised land.

Farewell my dear sister ,
we love you, but God loves your more .

Ore mi Atata, Ore tooto ' my sister'
O digba O digbose, O digbere
K'ato rerin, O digbo K'ato r'efon, Od'odan k'ato riru re, Omo Akintobi, aya Tayo Oyefeko. May the good lord bless us ( All saying farewell to you). Till we meet again .

TRIBUTE TO MY AUNTY: CHIEF (MRS) MOJI OYEFEKO

By
Josephine Olatomi Soboyejo, Ph.D
Marietta, GA, USA

I have always known my aunty Moji, which translates to almost 69 years now. My father has several cousins, but my favourite aunty is Moji Oyefeko, called aunty by me. Our closeness is an extension of her closeness to my parents.

I can not tell the history of my academic career without mentioning my aunty and her late husband. They facilitated my entry into Yaba College of Technology in 1971 for my OND. I finished my HND in Science Technology (Biochemistry Major) in a record time as I graduated in 1975. That was a stepping stone for me until I peaked as a doctoral graduate, PhD in Philosophy of Religion and Theology from Ajayi Crowther University.

I love beautiful and elegant women because I glorify God through their beauty, and my aunty was an outstanding beauty and brain. You cannot discuss intelligently with some people, but I love discussing with my aunty to tap her knowledge and life experiences. Aunty Moji was indeed a rare and unique personality. Her poise, carriage, and behaviour are pattern models for young Christian women. Her relationship with her late husband (Baba Oye) and her devotion to him before his departure was an encouragement to married women. My aunty was a virtuous woman with a solid Christian Character.

Aunty Moji’s transition shocked me. I know no one lives forever, but she was one person I desire to have around still. Her memory of kindness, the warm interpersonal relationship will linger on in my memory and those that know her. I did not see my aunty before my relocation to the United States of America. Aunty Moji called me on my Nigerian telephone number, saying it is a while, she heard from me. I told her I am no longer in Nigeria and apologized for not seeing her before travelling. She understood, forgave me and asked me to keep in touch. I promised her to be calling at least once a week. I kept that for a little while; then, I faltered not because I did not want to call but to other pre-occupation of living in America.

My beloved aunty reminds me of so many good qualities,
I remember her smile that can melt even a stone heart;
I remember her beautiful face,
I remember her finesse (grace, elegance), a unique characteristic of her person;
I remember her wisdom that I always cherish when she speaks to me,
I remember her love for my parents,

I am sorry, aunty Moji, that I forgot you would not last forever.
I will indeed miss you, my dearest aunty. But I know you are happier now. You are now together with your loving husband. Both of you are enjoying the presence of Jesus Christ now that you have joined the Saints Triumphant.
Adieu my darling aunty! Adieu ma!

My consolation is that you left worthy and successful children behind to carry on your legacy. May the Almighty God continually uphold and sustain them. Your place might not know you physically again, but your memory shall linger forever.
Rest on in the Bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is Well.

TRIBUTE
We thank God for the life of Mummy. She was strong frank, disciplined, but loving and fair-minded. My last memory of her was on Bunmi’s Mum’s birthday, just the Sunday before she passed onwhen Fewa was pulling her to stand on the scale to weigh herself. It was a great and funny spectacle, and one could see how happy she was to have her children, grandchild, and great-grandchildren with her. She will be missed by us all.

Grandma’s tribute.

My Grand ma was such a strict, intelligent, beautiful, funny and caring grandmother that anyone could ever ask for.

Ever since i came into this world she has shown me nothing but powerful love.
She was so sweet and kind to me, every time i felt like life wanted to attack me, I would always call her telling her my problems, she would listen and, visit the next day.She was literally my super hero.

Every holiday, I would always want to come back to Lagos just to spend some quality time with my grandmother. Everything about her was an inspiration to me. She made me laugh so hard that i couldn’t control the way i laughed, everything about her was interesting. Everyone understood, and, respected her. I remember the day i went to her home to spend a Saturday night with her before travelling back to my university. The day after, on Sunday morning, right before going to church, she came to the room just to check up on me and, see if I was comfortable before she left and as usual she never stopped making me laugh.

She wouldn’t let anyone stress her darling grandson.
The Sunday morning after she left, I decided to do one or two things that day before she came back home because i knew that i couldn’t have done the things i needed to do when she was around. So i took off. On my way getting to my destination, I got a call from the house help panicking, saying, “your grandma is looking for you oh”. I just knew I had to turn around.
Immediately I arrived at the entrance of the living room, she shouted “praise God”. I just started laughing because her reaction had me almost on the floor. She was so funny.

Another day was when she came to the house to spend some weeks with us and I had on a crazy hairstyle. I knew my grandma would really shout at me so I decided to wear a big gigantic hat to greet her. Once I saw her she definitely knew I did something to my hair. She asked me about my hair that afternoon and I told her my hair was very rough and untidy. She still wanted to see it, as I was looking for more excuses to tell her i started walking away slowly. As soon as she took her eyes off me, i ran away very fast with full speed. I genuinely almost thought I was Usain Bolt that day.

I am glad that she saw me through the finishing line of my education, and it is sad that she will not see me graduate from university in September this year, but I know she’s in a better place resting and watching over her grandson.

My Grandma was everything I needed her to be, strong, determined, courageous, caring, funny, and most importantly, a God-fearing woman. I really miss her so much.
I know everything happens for a reason and now she has joined grandpa (her darling husband & my darling grandpa) in heaven, watching over her children, grandchildren & great grandchildren.

May her beautiful soul rest in perfect peace.

GOOD NIGHT TO A RARE WOMAN, CONFIDANT AND A VIRTUOUS CHRISTIAN

“Death leaves a heartache which is healed by no one; Love leaves a memory which no one can steal”
 The shocking and unexpected news of “Mama Oye’s” passing on was received by us with a clear message that when the  fullness of time knocks, we are not afforded the obligation to shut the door against the final departure call.

Having weaned ourselves from the shock and pain of losing a very close family friend and a truthful confidant of over four decades, it is only apt and fitting to pay this earned tribute to a virtuous woman with a golden heart.

From her earliest working years at GBO-BEAM when I knew her, to our close association in the Yaba Baptist Church Family, Mrs Mojisola Oyefeko (née Akintobi) was a woman of untarnished character, manifested in her apron of honesty, forthrightness, kindness, generosity and moral courage.

As a long standing family friend and confidant, Mrs Moji Oyefeko has shown the rare characteristics of being trustworthy, principled and devoted family woman.

Her family consisted not only of blood relations but also of many people of all tribes and walks of life, including numerous admirers who saw her as a role model and whom she took under her wings.

While we are permitted to celebrate the glorious life she lived and the green memories she left behind, we must remember that she has only gone ahead of us.

As a Practising Christian, Mrs Mojisola Oyefeko, apart from being many years WOMICAN Executive Committee Member, capping it with its Presidency, actively participated zealously and unpretentiously in many Church-related Worship and Home Fellowship activities.

She was a Foundation Member of the elite Ladies Crusaders Society of the Yaba Baptist Church which benefited from her active participation and generosity.

Perhaps it is in the area of being an exemplary Family Woman that Mrs Oyefeko left a lasting visible legacy. She unquestionably lived the following words of H. Jackson Brown Jnr - “Live so that when your Children (and husband) think of
fairness, caring, love and character, they think of you.”

Although death has robbed us of her visioned completion of her life’s assignment, it however reminds us of the transience of life God created. We are consoled by the fact that no life is secure than one surrendered to God.

Whilst we will miss the warm and friendly wise counsel and comradeship that we shared over these years, we take consolation in the fond memories of the time we spent together and that she lived a fulfilled life worthy of emulation.

We console her soundly brought-up children and the warm-heartedly related loved ones she has left behind with the following words of an Anonymous Author - “Miss me but let me go; When I come to the end of the road And the sun has set for me, I want no rites in a gloom-filled room; Why cry for a Soul set free! For this journey we all must take, And each must go alone. It’s all a part of the Master’s plan, A step on the road to home. Miss me but let me go.”
MAY THE GOOD LORD GRANT HER DEPARTED SOUL A BLISSFUL REPOSE.
❤️GOOD NIGHT, DEAR SISTER❤️

Mama Oyefeko was the Chairperson of WOWICAN (WOMEN'S WING OF CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIA), YABA LCDA CHAPTER. The chapter was established about year 2011 and Mama was the first Chairperson. She was the financier of the activities of the group because members' dues were so insignificant. Her motherly roles in counseling, caring, leadership and mentoring were excellent.
  At the Lagos State WOWICAN level, Mama attended all activities expected of chairpersons. She travelled out of Lagos to participate in Southwest region and national programmes. She delegated members to other activities to ensure our participation and relevance. She settled all financial obligations, and monitored regular and prompt submission of monthly reports to the State WOWICAN. Her amiableness is so worthy of emulation. May her gentle soul rest in peace.
  She sourced for referees for the opening of our bank account. Mama will be remembered for all she did in our midst for sweet memories and motivation. She spent her time, talent and money. We are grateful to God for Mama's fruitful service in the Lord's vineyard.
  Sweet Mother, we are thankful. We love you. May your beautiful soul rest on the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. Goodnight Ma.

The news of the death of my senior, Sister Moji came to me as a rude shock, painful and unexplained. I have been out of the Country for some time now. My name is Engr. Muyiwa Oyeteju. A brother to late Mrs. Moradeke Adepegba. Sister Moji and Sister Deke were twins from Egba Owu and i grew up knowing both of them as my senior sisters. Her tolerance, love, Godly life was so meaningful. I thank God for her life and times. I bid sister farewell with 2Tim 4 : 7 & 8. May God grant her soul sweet repose. 'Muyiwa Oyeteju.

Sister Moji, you have left a remarkable legacy here on earth. You will never be forgotten and always loved by all of us in the family. I was so privileged to have you as my very special sister. You meant so much to me, you were such an important part of our family. If only we could have you here much longer but the Lord knows best why you had to leave. I am so grateful and hopeful that some day I will see you again and get to spend eternity with you, never to part no more. Adieu Sweet Sister!!

I first met Baba S. T. Oyefeko in 1973, when I was a student of Building and Civil Engineering at Yaba College of Technology. Immediately, Baba took me home as his ward, Mummy embraced and accepted me as if she had always known me. Their home became mine as well.

Mummy adored Baba, she was his confidant, his champion, and a pillar of support for all that Baba believed in and was committed to. She was a loving mother, from whom poured an abundance of love and affection.

When I was being mentored as a young professional, there were three of us who were particularly close to Baba and Mummy; Myself, Bldr Mrs Shade Laja, and Bldr Mrs Iyabode Bolarinwa.

Mummy never raised an eye brow or doubted the genuineness of our relationship with the family. Her love to us was true and real.

A loving wife and a doting mother, a mother in love and care to many, and an indefatigable soldier of Christ. You deserve a peaceful rest. May your soul continue to rest in the bossom of your maker. We love you Mummy, but God loves you more.

MAMA YEMISI AS FONDLY CALLED. SHE WAS AN AUNTIE, AND EVEN A MOTHER AFTER THE DEMISE OF MY MOTHER, WHO HAPPENED TO BE AN ELDERLY SISTER TO HER.
DIFFICULT TO EASILY FORGET THE LOVE SHOWN TO YOUR ELDER SISTER WHEN BOTH WERE ALIVE. AT HER VERY OLD AGE, YOU WERE ALWAYS THERE TO CHEER HER UP. EVEN AT DEATH, YOU MADE YOURSELF AVAILABLE TO ACCORD HER THE DUE AND THE LAST RESPECT THAT COULD BE SHOWN TO SOMEONE LOVED.
YOU CAME TO THIS WORLD, YOU KNEW THERE WOULD BE A DAY TO HAVE AN APPOINTMENT WITH DEATH TOO, BEING MINDFUL OF THE FACT THAT IT IS JUST A PASSAGE TO ANOTHER WORLD, YOU CONQUERED, AND MOREOVER DIED IN CHRIST.
AUNTIE, KEEP ON RESTING IN THE BOSOM OF THE ALMIGHTY GOD YOUR CREATOR.....R.I.P.

Fw: Tribute TO OUR MUMMY MOJISOLA OYEFEKO  It was really shocking when I heard of the passing of mummy Tech, as she was fondly called. The last time my sister and I visited her at home on the 2nd of January 2021; she was full of life and gorgeously dressed as if she was going to a function. However, that wasn't too surprising because she was a fashionista, she could not understand the reason any one would dress shabbily, most especially us her children; most times she will direct her criticism or comment to whoever, she will say ”ki lo wo yi”, “no make up”, “se ko si”, “o ma ti wa sanra” etc. Mummy was generous to a fault; to put it simply she was a giver. My father trusted and value her opinion so much, that before he would take any decision, he would run it by her Mummy was the female pillar of the Adegboyega / Akintobi family . My father would say “E lo so fun Moji”. He would call her to strategize on family issues. I remember my mother told us a story about her.

TO MY MUM: A TRIBUTE

Mummy, Iya Oye, Iya, Mama Oye were the different names I called my mother at different times in her journey of life until she passed on that Friday morning. I least expected she would die just like that. The shock was too much. There are still questions I ask, but God knows best.

Mummy was not just my biological mother, friend, mentor and adviser, but friend also to my childhood friends. Her doors were open to everyone who was my friend. We discussed varied issues and would have a good laugh thereafter. She read newspapers religiously and was up to date on current affairs. Some of our discussions centered on happenings in the country.

Mummy prayed and prayed. She made it compulsory while under her roof for us to have prayer time in the evenings. By the time, I left home, after every call or visit, she would pray, pray and pray some more.

Mama Oye was a strong pillar of support to her husband and all she loved. She was always there for us. Once she loved you, rest assured, she would stand by you all the way. I was showered with the abundance of her love. God bless her soul.

Iya Oye was generous and made sure that everyone who met her received something no matter how small. Even artisans after receiving their wages would be given something in addition even if it was a drink and biscuit. For me, I received lovely birthday and Christmas gifts every year. No year was left out.

She was gorgeous as she was bold and dared where her peers demurred. There were times I had the task of scolding her for being too blunt. She would listen and explain her position and was appreciative of my little counsel.

My mum liked to look good. She had a tremendous dress sense which I tried to copy with modest success. I also wish I inherited her elegant dance moves!

A mother's love is without compare; it is like no other relationship. It is unconditional. That was my mum encapsulated.

Mama Oye gave her all to family, community, humanity and the Almighty - in whose bosom she, most certainly, has earned eternal repose.

I sure miss Mummy, Iya Oye, Iya, Mama Oye so very much. Things aren't definitely the same. God rest her soul.

In all things we give thanks to God for a great life lived. You came as one but you have left as many as reflected in the lives of your children and their children’s children. You were not just a cousin to my late mother, you were a big sister too. You were the first to visit when she passed and you did not come empty handed though grief stricken. You have fought long and hard for your Lord and through it all, you have kept true to Him. And now time has come for you to stop fighting and rest. May your memory forever remain a blessing.

mummy, saying you will be sorely missed is an understatement. you were gentle, kind loving but yet firm. it matters not whose horns you gore, you will say the truth as you see it. I am truly going to miss you. you were not just a mum to me but my sister and friend. OMG, what a pillar of support. the things I could not discuss with my natural mum, I discussed with you in confidence and it died with you. what a lady?. there are not that many people like you left. you were one I a million. my consolation is that you lived to the ripe age of 85years. we were planning your 86th. i was suppose to supply the chicken. you visited me and adviced me like you always do. but for some reason i couldn't get enough of you i had to visit you @ my sister's house a couple of times before your departure not knowing we were saying our goodbyes never to celebrate your 86th alive. we wish you were here till 100yrs but only God knows his plans for us. i thank God almighty that you did not suffer before leaving. it shows again how great a woman you were. mummy, you will be sorely missed. we love you but God loves you more. we know you are in a better place at the bosom of the Lord. continue to rest in peace ma. love you forever.

Grandma Aguda,
That’s what I and my siblings called you. I didn’t see this one coming at all, at least not now.
I have so many fond memories with you, from Yaba Tech to Aguda, and I will cherish them for a very long time.
Thank you for loving us very fiercely and warmly.
You never forgot birthdays; one thing I was very sure of is that I will get a card with money in it on my birthday.

Rest well Grandma.

A Tribute To my Grandmother

Writing this has flooded fond memories from childhood visiting you and grandpa in Aguda. How you’d always allow us have anything especially sweet things as long as we had our customary cup of Agbo at the end of the day.

It’s bitter sweet writing this knowing we didn’t get to say goodbye properly but also comforting that you have gone to a better place and gone to be with Grandpa.

We find solace in the fact that you have gone to rest in heaven, and we assured that you are at peace. We’ll cherish all the memories you have given us, you’ll always remain in our hearts and you’ll never be forgotten.

Love You,
Fiyinfoluwa Oyefeko

IN FOND MEMORY OF “MAMA MARGARET”
I commiserate with the Oyefeko and Akintobi Families on the passing on to glory of Mama Margaret Oyefeko who we loved so much, but God loves her best.
I was privileged to have known Mama Margaret in dual capacity over the years: firstly, as a foremost executive secretary at UAC of Nigeria where she worked directly with my husband (Duro Oyinlola of blessed memory) for more than a decade; and secondly as a relation of our erstwhile and dear landlord (Pa Adegboyega, also of blessed memory) - a caring and concerned lover of younger people who was always interested in our progress as a young couple then. The relationship between our families was finally cemented by God Almighty Himself, when our own ‘Deolu Oyinlola got married to Mama’s dear daughter, Yemisi.
Mama Margaret was a diligent, caring and honest worker. She managed her office so well that it was a delight for all to associate with her even after she retired. She was a humble, frank and loving big sister, reliable and confidential. She exhibited so many Godly qualities that made one trust and love her all the more. She was positively predictable, a quality that has become rare in this present age.
I thank God she knew how much we appreciated her for who she was while on this earth. To mention Mama Margaret’s qualities now is simply to let others appreciate and learn from her noble life on earth. Also, I thank God for Pa Solomon Temitayo Oyefeko, her husband of blessed memory, who encouraged her to showcase these qualities, for he was just as noble a character himself.
One is assured she is resting fully with God who she walked with and worked for all her life.
I pray that all of us still living will ensure our lives reflect our relationship with God, our Lord and Saviour. My prayer is that God will continue to take care of her household and keep her legacy ever shining.
E ku ara fe ara ku.
God bless you.

Writing this tribute is surreal as your death came as a rude shock to us all.

We will miss her dearly but her memories shall remain with us forever . Our Lord Jesus Christ will fill the vacuum created by her passing and the Holy Spirit will continue to comfort all.

May her gentle soul Rest In perfect peace Amen.

her Life

Birth and Early Childhood

Mrs. Margaret Folake Mojisola Oyefeko nee Akintobi was born on 26th July 1935 in Owu Quarters of Abeokuta, now in Abeokuta North Local Government, Abeokuta, Ogun State of Nigeria. Her Parents were Pa Chief Emmanuel Awolola Akintobi and Madam Marian Akintobi both of blessed memory. The parents were Christians of Baptist denomination.

For her Primary School education, little Mojisola attended Owu Baptist Day School from January 1943 to December 1952. In her days, the criterion for admitting a child into Primary School was by asking the child to stretch his/her right hand over the head to touch the left ear. If the hand didn't reach the other ear, the child was referred to as not being old enough to start school. Usually, the Primary School education lasted for 8 years.

In 1953, she was admitted to Baptist Girls School, Idi-Aba, Abeokuta. This was a Preparatory School for those who would eventually enter the prestigious Baptist Women Teacher Training College. She successfully completed this course in 1957.

However in 1958, instead of going for the Teacher Training course, she had the privilege of travelling abroad to the United Kingdom for further studies .On arrival in the U.K., she enrolled for a two-year course in Nursing at St Helen's Hospital School of Nursing, Manchester, England from 1958 to 1960.


Married Life

Mojisola  got married to her heart throb, Solomon Temitayo Oyefeko in 1960 and the union lasted for 56 years before he passed on to glory on the 23rd of July, 2015. Together, they were blessed with three biological children, Tunde, Dupe and Yemisi, several grandchildren and after the passage of ‘Baba Oye’, great grand children.

Spiritual Life and Ministry

Our mother was brought up to know the Lord from her youth by her Parents and by the strict Christian training that the Baptist faithful inculcate in their children. She gave her life to Christ later and was baptised by immersion.  She is blessed with spiritual gifts which she has used to the fullest by engaging in several Christian activities.

She joined Yaba Baptist Church, Sabo sometime in 1969 and remained an active member of the church until her death. She was a member of the Ladies Crusaders and was the President at a time.  She was also a member of the  Womens Missionary Union and participated actively in the Lunch Hour Fellowship. Mummy also joined the Women's Wing of Christian Association of Nigeria (WOWICAN) and became the Chairperson of the Lagos Mainland Wing.



Mummy was dedicated to prayer and Bible study.  She also enjoyed reading several Christian books.  She was a good Counsellor and was full of wisdom. She lived with the fear of God and was good at encouraging those with challenges. She was actively involved serving in the Lord’s vineyard right up to her transition.

As a mother, she was strict with the training of all her children and wards.  She was firm, dependable, progressive and proactive.  As a mother she was a disciplinarian, although she was very loving and generous and would go to any length to support her children and grandchildren.

She also enjoyed attending social functions particularly whenever her Christian brethren and family were involved.  She was a good dresser and despite her age, she always ensured that she was well dressed and neat at all times.  She loved her family and friends dearly.
