ForeverMissed
A Call to Eternal Rest

This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Norah Idornigie (Nee Oiwoh) 51 years old , born on January 1, 1969 and passed away on March 9, 2020. We will remember her forever.


Norah Josephine Ebeagbor Idornigie (Mrs.) was born on January 1st 1969 at Uromi Edo State, a blessing to her parents, Sir and Lady. Edward Oiwoh and her elder brother, Premier Oiwoh. And consequently, a blessing to all her siblings, Clement, Justina, Edna and Victor Oiwoh that came after her.

She completed her studies at the University of Lagos with a B.Sc Degree in Zoology in 1990, an MBA in Marketing from the Delta State University in 2000.   She went on to acquire more qualifications to better herself and expand her skills. Between January and June 1992, she was certified in computer processing and programming.  In June 1995, she went back to the University of Lagos and obtained her Diploma in Marketing, sponsored by CDC. In 1998, she enrolled at the Delta State University Abraka, where she obtained a Masters’ in Marketing (MBA). As you can tell, she succeeded and expanded her mental capacity to greater heights. To enhance her career as a Proprietress, Norah enrolled in National Open University of Nigeria for a degree in Career Guidance and Counselling and concluded in 2017.

In the professional ladder, Norah began at Paging Services Nigeria Ltd. as a Paging Officer. She then moved to Commonwealth Development Corporation (CDC) Lagos, where she served as the Head Project Assistant up until 1997 when she went to school to acquire her Masters. 

In 1997, she became the Customer Service Manager at ABEX Express Parcel Service Lagos, where she worked for a couple of years before going to work at Business Media Nigeria Ltd., Lagos (a subsidiary of Capital Alliance, Nigeria) as an Executive Manager, Marketing & Client Service in 2000. She was appointed CEO of Peanol’s Ventures Nigeria Ltd., Lagos in 2002.  The passion for children and the desire to impact knowledge resulted in the establishment of Parkwood School in partnership with her bestie, Mrs. Kemi Osiyemi, in 2008 a school she was very passionate about and dedicated to till her passing.

Norah was brought up in a Christian home to Catholic parents. She grew up having all her faith and life entrusted to God. She, along with her husband, Peary Idornigie groomed their children in the Catholic faith, and to believe in God in any endeavor they would wish to take on in life. 

Being the person she was, Norah only ever shared love wherever she went. It is little wonder she caught the heart of her husband, Peary Idornigie. They met in 1994 and got married in April, 1996 and were blessed with three children: Leslie. Sonia and Edward in that order respectively.

Her passion for music and the creative arts in general, led her to join Theatre 15, the theatre club in the Faculty of Arts, University of Lagos where she demonstrated her flare for artistic works. She played different roles and characters but will forever be remembered for her role as “Owoh” a young aspiring politician gunning for the presidency of the country.  Norah was also a member of the Unilag Alumni Class of ‘89 – 91’.

She was the pioneering founder of Wealthsprings Investments in 2006 and also the first President. She was also one of the pioneer members of Our Lady Mother and Queen Catholic Church Badore and functioned as the Treasurer at the formative stage of the Church. Norah was an active member of the Church Board of Lectors; a Marriage Facilitator/Counsellor and a member of the Sacred Heart Society.  

She was also a very passionate member of the Catholic Women Organization where she was a past Executive and she functioned at various capacities in all the societies. 

Norah was a wonderful woman who was exceptionally favored by God because even when it would seem like things were out of her hands, you would never see her panicking. Instead, she would say she has resigned any issues beyond her control into God’s hands. Her faith kept her going even at the most trying times and like Job, you could never shake it. 

She is survived by her husband, children, mother and father, brothers and sisters, Uncles, Aunts and cousins, in-laws, all the friends she was able to make while on Earth, her pupils of Parkwood School and the members of her church. So she will never be forgotten. She was indeed a pace- setter in all ramification.

God sustained her till the evening of 9th March, 2020, when He finally decided to call her home to rest and be at peace.

Dear Aunty Norah,

I got in touch with you through your sister Edna when i wanted to start my school and needed some assistance. Though we never met but only spoke on phone, you gave me the contact of everyone you dealt with. You gave me tips and information without the slightest hesitation. Even when my husband went over to Lagos and met with you, he was so awed by the warmth you exuded. He kept talking about how open and how sincere you were.
I had to hold myself from calling or sending you WhatsApp messages so often because i didn't want to be a bother.
I even sent you a beautiful message on Mother's day and told myself i needed to call you later to say hello. I didn't know that you have gone to be with the Lord.

My heart is so so heavy but am certain of this one thing, that you are resting in the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ. You were such a good soul and i thank God for all the lives you affected.

I met you my dearest Nora, a while ago.Even though much older than you. I savoured your intelligence.loved the diction when you open your mouth. I thought it was forever then time stopped. Like a candle in the wind,a gentle breeze took you out. Your beautiful soul is now eternally beautiful. No more tears just beautiful memories. An Amazon just went to sleep. Rest on my darling. Rest on.

Adieu Aunty Niorah.

Dear Aunty Norah, your death came as a rude shock. I met you through my friend and colleague, Edna, your younger sister.

I still remember the first time I met you, you were so full of warmth and love. I took to you immediately. I literally 'fell in love with you'.

I would always ask Edna after you. She would gently tease me not to snatch her sister from her. Lol. Oh how I loved you.

It is sad to say goodbye but as a Christian, I believe in the resurrection. So rest on Aunty Norah until the resurrection day.

You're with the angels now. That I'm sure of. Love you aunty Norah.


Adieu.............

Dear Madam Norah, it is my misfortune that I did not get to know you or meet you!
But am completely convinced that you were a pure “gem”, going by the wonderful testimonies from everyone.
You have left a legacy never to be tarnished and a family that God will take care of in your bodily absence!
Take your deserved rest and May God watch over all that you have left behind and keep us all Strong.

My dearest, dearest, dearest friend Norah Idornigie.

I’m writing this with a very heavy heart and with tears dripping down my face. You’re gone!!!, so hard to believe. So many years of a great and true friendship – we shared so many moments, happy, not so happy and life’s issues in general. We turned to each other when things got tough. We had no secrets, never lied to each other, always brutally honest and full of respect for each other. Parkwood School, we ran together in one accord until I retired last year.
A loyal friend and a great listener. I always admired her ability to stay calm in difficult situations whereas I would go from zero to 360 degrees in minutes and she’d say, Kemi, you’re a drama queen, calm down.
Remembering some of the happy moments: Norah, how far, what are we doing this weekend?; Kemi, send someone to the fence, the groundnut soup is ready; How many wraps of moin-moin do you want, let me add your own to the pot; I’m going to Mile 12, what do you need?; What are you wearing today oo, we can’t be doing aso ebi to school every Friday ore. Last year, we decided we were going to learn how to swim so we could have things to do together in old age. I lasted only one lesson whilst Norah managed 3 or so I think. So many plans, all of them with both of us in the picture……my heart bleeds.
We walked the cancer journey together, it was rough but we prayed and hoped. You were strong in faith and held on through it all. It’s tough to say this but “In all things, we give thanks”. Thank God for the extra time He allowed you to spend with us, Thank God for all the special moments we shared and Thank God because He will wipe away our tears and comfort us.
I’ll miss your smile
I’ll miss your sincerity
I’ll miss your unique voice when we jist
I’ll miss your love

Farewell my friend, my girls second Mummy.....Fly with the angels Norah.

Dear Norah,
We talked in church and you promised me that you would wear a pair of black shoes that had been on your shoe rack for nearly a year! How vain this request now seems.... You seemed so well, you looked so well, we even laughed! You told me not to envy your weight loss and then you threw the bombshell! I was worried but you were hopeful and I became hopeful too. I was going to call you to encourage you... it is all in the past now. You were such a robust and confident person and when we worked together on the Church harvest committee, it was such a joy. We knew we would succeed. I remember our trip to the market to buy fruits for the CWO fair. We shared so many stories, it was such a fulfilling experience. All I have now are memories of you. I regret not calling regularly as I promised to check on you. May the Lord console Peary and the children. We shall miss you greatly. May you rest in the Lord’s Bosom.

My aunty Norah!!! I've tried to write this a few times... but I couldn't finish because it's just too hard.. saying goodbye when you're not ready is a difficult feat so I'll try my best. It's so funny how the morning of your death I sent a text telling you I was worried and if you were okay.. since then, I have felt depths of pain I didn't feel was possible to feel. I can't even believe I'm writing this. Too many memories of you flood my heart while I write this. So I'll turn this into a gratitude thing. Thank you fo the impact you had in my life. From being my neighbour to my friends' mom, to my mum's friend and then my friend. I just remembered the day you forced leslie, sonia, Edward, Abraham and I to eat bitter leaf soup! Kai aunty Norah you and your healthy eating moves .. sigh, I'll gladly eat it now if it's just to have you around. It was so cool how you could be a no-nonsense person yet so loving... hahaha, just remembered when you wore trousers just to beat someone... can't remember who it was... but I digress... Thank you for the drama you do everytime I come back from my Ajala moves, always waiting with a big hug! I can still see your arms open, ready to squish me Thank you for the gift of your friendship. Aunty there was never a time you didn't listen! With you everyone was VIP and every issue was one of national importance! You valued human lives and it's such a beautiful thing about you. I remember how PARKWOOD students would come up to you and tell you about somewhere their parents took them too or a new thing they'd try and you'd express such joy.. I guess that's why they kept coming back. Also, thank you for all the advice! What could I not talk to you about!! From life plans to boys, to friendships. So many things you taught me guide my relationship with people to this day and definitely beyond.
Most of all, thank you for all the love you showed meee!!
Aunty as I'm typing I'm just seeing you smiling and saying I'll be fine... it just doesn't feel like there'll be a time I won't feel the gap you left.. but I'll trust your words.. I'll be fine and we'll all be fine... I will never forget you! You are truly one of a kind Aunty Norrieee I started typing with tears and ended with a smile and it just reminded me of you again... no matter what mood I was in you knew how to turn it into a smile and I think a lot of people can say the same.
Thank you for your service to humanity soldier... on behalf of the world, let me say that, it's been a pleasure... till we meet again
Posted by Toyosi Osiyemi on March 25, 2020
For some weird reason, I still feel like you’re going to come home one day and we’d laugh about it and move on. We all knew this day would come but definitely not this soon. It breaks my heart knowing there’s no aunty Norah to get welcome and bye bye hugs and kisses from. You were the aunty we could gist about everything. You always knew when to play and when to chastise, You were strong, hardworking, prayerful, intelligent, smart. We can’t question the Lord but I know that you’re resting in his bounty and keeping an eye on all of us. You will forever be missed. You were a second mum to me and for this I’m forever grateful. Till we meet again ❤️

Writing this grieves my heart because i always thought you'd be at my cousins' (Tomi,Dolapo and Toyosi) wedding. You were really nice and loving to me with the short time i spent with you, giving words of advice and material gifts. A sweet disciplinarian and i love that about you. Heaven has gained an angel and you'll forever be missed. Rest Easy Aunty Norah

Posted by Femi Aladesuyi on March 25, 2020
Very difficult to have to write this in the past tense because Norah was a very vibrant, loving friend and bestie to my sister- Kemi Osiyemi. She extended that loving relationship she had with Kemi to our whole family and demonstrated her love with her care ,concern and gifts.
I know heaven has gained a very beautiful soul and we have the loving memories of the times we had with you and the impact you made.
Continue to rest in peace and may the Lord comfort all those you left behind in Jesus name. We will all meet at the feet of Jesus again.

Dear Norah,

You were a beautiful and courteous woman. 
There was no time I saw you without your beautiful smile.
You left too soon.
I pray that God will watch over and preserve your husband, children and loved ones.

Adieu!!!

Rest in peace dear friend . Our paths crossed many moons ago through a mutual friend and later T15 at UnilagStill coming to term with your sudden departure! But o ye olorun . May the bereaved be comforted and may you find peace with your maker
Posted by Ayodele Oshinoiki on March 22, 2020
It came to me and my family as a big shock when I read the school chat that you passed, I still did not believe you are gone, I remember whenever I came for the children’s open day, you were always ready to give a listening ear, You would always say we operate an open office,

Our God that has times and season in His Hands Knows the end of a thing from the beginning. We can never question Him.

We Give God the glory for a beautiful life well spent though was short but was full of Godly and positive impact which is the most essentials in life

May you continue to rest in God’s Bosom Ma

May God grant your family and loved ones the fortitude to bear this great loss to humanity.

Sleep well Dear Mrs Norah Idornigie.......

Mrs. Norah Idornije was a mentor to me. The first day I spoke with her I knew enrolling my children in Parkwood School was the right decision. She was a loving, kind, understanding and fun person. My children always say she is a kind, fun and hardworking teacher/head mistress. I learnt a lot from her and it hurts me that I never had the opportunity to tell her in person. She was very passionate about helping children be the best as well as advising parents on the best educational decision fit for every individual child. When I lost my mum she was there to speak encouraging words to me that gave me strength. I can't believe you are gone. On so many occasions, we would talk on the phone for a long time and she will keep advising and encouraging me. I wish this was all a dream but God knows best. RIP Mrs. Norah Idornije and Thank you for been here. Your memory will surely live on.

For me, the Passing of Mrs Norah Idornigi is a painful one. It’s still strange to me. I have never stopped reflecting about her ever since I heard about this painful exit. I still remember my last discussion with her in her office. As usual, welcoming, listening and reassuring. She was such a nice and understanding person full of love, enthusiasm and passion for her job. I must confess that I admired her and from a distant I knew her husband was a lucky man having her as wife. I know her children were raised properly even though I haven’t actually meet them. In life you cannot give what you don’t have and I know most of the good qualities my kids brought home from school was from her leadership at the school. Madam Idornigi is the reason that my children is still attending Parkwood School even after we moved house’s . The distance wasn’t favorable to me and my wife but the development of the kids came first in all. Mrs Idornigi made sure every child was respected and treated equally especially in a society where class counted in everyday life. She was a mother to all the kids in the school and my daughter talked about her fondly.
Only yesterday, my daughter told me again that Mrs Idornigi passed when I went to pick her after her exams. I didn’t know what to tell because she’s still a child but I summoned up courage to tell her that Mrs Idornigi had gone to be with the Lord. It is well. We cannot question God! We accept the decision of the Almighty. Mrs Idornigi left an indelible mark at Parkwood and I hope those virtues will be sustained. Whenever I go pick my kids or drive by I will never forget such a beautiful woman with good characters. RIP Ma’am

Dear Norah,

We have so many beautiful memories to relive over the past thirty years which all now seem like a dream as your day dimmed and night beckoned.
You were an angel among us and your light shineth forth among stars; you will forever live and have a special place in our hearts.
You were a unique part of the Unilag Alumni 1989 -1991 group where you shared your experiences and your expertise with all and sundry, we cherish your contributions and hold on to these wonderful memories till we meet to part no more.
May God grant your soul eternal rest and your loved ones the fortitude to bear the loss and Grace to always remember you with feelings of fondness as you rest in the bosom of the Almighty.
We love you but God loves you more.

N - Night Night

I never thought I would be writing this so early in life. I started writing and stopped to cry. I have lost my second mother and I am grieving. Death offers peace and rest in Jesus and that’s what you have found.

The world has gone crazy since you left but I know that if you were here you would say ‘It’s okay dearie!’ ....and that will make all the difference. Your legacy will not be forgotten.

Love you forever and a day.
Your Sisi Tomi

Words are not strong enough to express my feelings as I realize that Death has snatched again...so quickly one who had a great influence in life.
Norah you were open, honest and welcoming all the time. Thank you for everything you have done for me. It is sad to have to say goodbye. My consolation is that the Almighty God knows best...when one’s journey of life begins and when it ends on earth. He knows you have fulfilled your purpose and your life is well spent.
A void is created though and we will try to fill it with your loving memory.
May your soul Rest In Peace..Amen
Posted by Moshood Adelotan on March 19, 2020
It's so shocking that you left us,but we are console by the fact that you lived a fruitful life and your memories lives on forever.

May you rest peacefully in the bosom of the Almighty God. I pray the Holy spirit to comfort the family and friends you left behind, Amen.

TOO EARLY TO SAY GOODNIGHT
Shared by Sunkanmi OLOWO on March 13, 2020
Your body lies down, your soul returns to your maker
You left your smiles on our mind, your warmth in our heart
Your love all around us
You fought this last fight with bravery with faith with hope
Infectious hope that we all thought we had won!
No, the Lord won, He needs you more and wants you home!
Your smiles back to your maker, your courage you taught us so much
Your simplicity, your contentment, your bravery, your sweetness and your faith
The legacies you left behind, the thousands of children you impacted!
While you prepared, we did not prepare!
No wonder you left peacefully, smiling away from the pains while we cried
Rest on with your maker Nora!
Just too early but we say goodnight!
Rest in the Lord's bosom

Posted by Andromeda Oragui on March 14, 2020
I only saw your lovely picture on the cooperative platform and I knew you had a good heart. It was further confirmed by all the glowing tributes from my sisters at the chat room.

So long beautiful Nora. May you rest on where saints like you belong.

A very short life. I never knew I won't see you again after 24th December, 2019, I continued praying for you till the last day not knowing that you will leave that Sunday. You will greatly be missed by Peary and Leslie and the others. I couldn't comprehend it for like 10minutes but God know you have tried and you need to rest from this wicked world. I don't know how to tell Gbeminiyi my daughter your daughter's friend. Rest in Peace dear friend.

Darling sweet Norah Oiwoh, wife to Perry Idornigie and adorable mum to Leslie and co. Oh dear.
My heart goes out to your husband and children and family
May Great Grace and comfort be your portion in Jesus mighty name Amen.

Norah dear, you were still at my birthday in December. I recall vividly hugging each other and we even promised we'd talk, cos I wasn't pleased seeing you the way you were. But typical you, you said Ore, it's your day, don't worry, celebrate, we'll talk later. You even told me you were already getting better and there was no cause for alarm.

But alas, the cares and hustle and bustle did not let that day come till with deep regret and tears in my heart I received the news of your passing this morning.

What can I say, we cannot question God.
We can only Thank the Almighty God for the privilege of the time you spent with us and the impact you made on us who knew you.
We are consoled with the knowledge and assurance that you are in a better place in heaven above.
May your darling soul rest in peace and may Comfort be your family's.

Ore, heavens gain is sadly our loss cos we'd have loved for you to still be with us. Happy journey homewards to your maker. Shalom. Sleep well dearly beloved

So shocking
No! Not our own dear Aunty Norah
That calm voice with a welcoming smile is gone?
I'm really lost for word
I will thank God for giving us Aunty Norah
And we will never blame Him for taking her from us for a higher assignment.
We will miss you Aunty Norah but we take solace in the fact that you are in the safe bosom of the almighty God.
Enjoy your stay with Him till we meet to part no more.

1. Seated one day at the organ,
I was weary and ill at ease,
And my fingers wandered idly
Over the noisy keys;
I know not what I was playing,
Or what I was dreaming then,
But I struck one chord of music,
Like the sound of a great Amen,
Like the sound of a great Amen.

2. It flooded the crimson twilight,
Like the close of an angel’s psalm,
And it lay on my fevered spirit,
With a touch of infinite calm,
It quieted pain and sorrow,
Like love overcoming strife,
It seemed the harmonious echo
From our discordant life,

3. It linked all the perplexed meanings
Into one perfect peace,
And trembled away into silence,
As if it were loth to cease;
I have sought but I seek it vainly,
That one lost chord divine,
Which came from the soul of the organ,
And entered into mine.

4. It may be that death’s bright angel
Will speak in that chord again;
It may be that only in Heav’n
I shall hear that great Amen.
It may be that death’s bright angel
Will speak in that chord again;
It may be that only in Heav’n
I shall hear that great Amen.

Aunty Norah, just last year around September we spoke after almost 20 years we last saw. I remembered that soothing voice. It is sad that was the last time I ever heard your voice. I know I will miss you. But who are we to question God. I believe you are in a better place where you will never grow old. You are safe in the arms of Jesus. Rest in Peace big Sister.

Forever you will remain in my heart that l once met an angel in the person of Norah Idornigie.  You were such a wonderful person, a rare gem, unique and special in every way. I love your courage, l love your simplicity, l admire your beauty and soft spoken style, your love for God, your support to uncle Perry, your love and open mind you share to everyone around you, you were accommodating and hospitable, so many things to write about an angel like you, a beautiful flower with a pleasant fragrance, you never told me we won’t see again in December when we spoke, you spoke with courage and winning attitude, you didn’t speak with fear or threat from the pit of hell and this gives me the assurance that you are in a better place with your Saviour Jesus, no wonder you chose to leave us.... Good Night dearest sister till we meet and part no more
Posted by Ehis Oboh on March 13, 2020
The angels looked down from heaven one night.
They searched for miles afar,
And deep within the distance
They could see a shining star.
They knew that very instant
That the star was theirs to gain,
So they took you up to heaven,
Forever to remain.
Look down on us from heaven.
Keep us free from hurt and pain.
You'll always be within my heart
Until we meet again. Continue to rest in the bosom of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ.

Dear Norah, the news of your death is still shocking to me. You were so sweet, gentle and full of wisdom. But God knows why He took you home at this time. We can not query Him but give Him praise for the impactful life you lived and pray that may He console your husband, children, friends and family and indeed Cooperative Villas residents.

May your soul continue to rest in perfect peace. Amen

May God's Angels receive you into the Heavenly Kingdom. May your memory remain fresh in the minds of all your loved ones. At every mention of your name and deeds, may smile fill hearts. The Lord in His infinite mercy will comfort your family. He owns us all. Fare thee well into your Father's love.

Dearest Sis, That's what I call you. You are my big sis, my friend and my adviser. You are too present in every way to be refered to in the past. I refuse to be desolate because I know we have Christ but the tears run freely. Words are hard when my heart bleeds. Goodnight sis.

Ever smiling Nora words can never really express fully your passing on. May your smile never be erased from our minds. Rest in perfect peace

Gone too soon. Aunty Norah was a good person with a good heart. She was friendly, jovial and was always at peace with everyone. She loved communicating with everyone around and shares her opinion in public. She was my classmate at Family and Human Life Unit and she gave me a ride after classes to my destination. Eternal rest grant unto her and let perpetual light shine upon her. Amen

Norah is the Sweetest Dearest soul ever known. With her comforting smile, so real and so warm, I will truly miss you. Always ready with a listening ear and words of advice that is so real and authentic. Norah sleep in the bosom of Our Lord while He takes over and comforts the Family and friends you left behind.

What a sad loss. I truly and genuinely admired Norah for her intellect and ability to solve issues. She was someone that knew something about almost everything. A power horse, extremely energetic. A devoted wife and mother. A woman that loved God. A dependable friend and associate in our small club. 1st of January won't be the same again. She will be greatly missed. God will comfort the family and Grant them peace. May the soul of my dear sister rest in eternal peace.

Dear Aunty Norah,

I got in touch with you through your sister Edna when i wanted to start my school and needed some assistance. Though we never met but only spoke on phone, you gave me the contact of everyone you dealt with. You gave me tips and information without the slightest hesitation. Even when my husband went over to Lagos and met with you, he was so awed by the warmth you exuded. He kept talking about how open and how sincere you were.
I had to hold myself from calling or sending you WhatsApp messages so often because i didn't want to be a bother.
I even sent you a beautiful message on Mother's day and told myself i needed to call you later to say hello. I didn't know that you have gone to be with the Lord.

My heart is so so heavy but am certain of this one thing, that you are resting in the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ. You were such a good soul and i thank God for all the lives you affected.

I met you my dearest Nora, a while ago.Even though much older than you. I savoured your intelligence.loved the diction when you open your mouth. I thought it was forever then time stopped. Like a candle in the wind,a gentle breeze took you out. Your beautiful soul is now eternally beautiful. No more tears just beautiful memories. An Amazon just went to sleep. Rest on my darling. Rest on.

Adieu Aunty Niorah.

Dear Aunty Norah, your death came as a rude shock. I met you through my friend and colleague, Edna, your younger sister.

I still remember the first time I met you, you were so full of warmth and love. I took to you immediately. I literally 'fell in love with you'.

I would always ask Edna after you. She would gently tease me not to snatch her sister from her. Lol. Oh how I loved you.

It is sad to say goodbye but as a Christian, I believe in the resurrection. So rest on Aunty Norah until the resurrection day.

You're with the angels now. That I'm sure of. Love you aunty Norah.


Adieu.............

The words still fail me. Who can ever be like you to me? The pain is worse because I wasn't there to say goodbye. I don't want to say goodbye. I will say our usual after our evening visits....Good night Sis.

AUNTY NORAH : ENDLESS SUPPORT

Shared by Leo Omoseebi on March 21, 2020
I met Aunty Norah through Theatre15 Unilag reunion activities. One was at a play at the Lagos Theatre festival of 2018 held at Freedom Park Lagos and another was at our beach party. She had come with her friends to support one of ours doing the theatre festival . You cannot forget her easy smile and large heart. She went to any length for those she cared for and i remember i attended to some enquiries  about the national theatre because she was planning an excursion for her school kids. I had the pleasure of meeting her son who she felt might catch a thing or two from us talking. So it was with the rudest shock i saw the notice of her demise. You left too damn soon Aunty. I wont forget how you reached out to us when we were raising funds for one of our "stage of life" alumnus... From all i hear you fought valiantly and no one guessed anything was amiss. Adieu and may the good Lord grant your husband and your kids the fortitude to bear this ... Thank you for the light you shared. I glimpsed it and i won't ever forget it. 

TOO EARLY TO SAY GOODNIGHT

Shared by Sunkanmi OLOWO on March 13, 2020
Your body lies down, your soul returns to your maker
You left your smiles on our mind, your warmth in our heart
Your love all around us
You fought this last fight with bravery with faith with hope
Infectious hope that we all thought we had won!
No, the Lord won, He needs you more and wants you home!
Your smiles back to your maker, your courage you taught us so much
Your simplicity, your contentment, your bravery, your sweetness and your faith
The legacies you left behind, the thousands of children you impacted!
While you prepared, we did not prepare!
No wonder you left peacefully, smiling away from the pains while we cried
Rest on with your maker Nora!
Just too early but we say goodnight! 
Rest in the Lord's bosom
