TRIBUTE TO:  A PRECIOUS AND INSTITUTIONAL MOTHER

No one can battle with the Lord or question Him.  He is the alpha and omega, the giver and taker of lives and everything under the sun.

Mama was peaceful,  a rare gem, pillar of support, a great achiever, caring, kind, magnanimous, passionate, hardworking , a disciplinarian and very compassionate. She was full of grace, so much love, integrity, divine wisdom and humility.

You feared and loved God, as well as loved your children and all who lived or came across you.   You left a legacy of sound, unique and awesome records in the sands of time.  She was also a seasoned philanthropist, instrument of good will, common good, and ephytome of hospitality, unity and brotherhood.

Mama was an institution of capacity building, human resource development and strategic management, who touched lives in so many ways.  As an institutional mother, she inspired those around her to be hard working, diligent and progressive, and strategically trained them in various professions and skills, to become who they are today.

According to my father in-law Diopka Akwaguna Christ Marah, your lovely family left in him   “a legacy to be cherished forever”. He never ceased talking about how he was natured by you and your husband to become what he is today as well as others so numerous to mention.

She was a paragon of beauty par excellence.  Her beauty was outstanding, infectious and very noticeable anywhere she goes.   Aside, she was a precious gift from God, with a pleasant and enviable personality.  The father Ogbuenyi Esekaogwu Edward Ugeh, a principled, handsome, noble and an exemplary man, loved and was very proud of her as a daughter and used to call her (Omoko), while his brother Late Mr. Samson Ugeh Alisa Italian Sanco the Amalinze the cat of Illah, who was very strong and brave in wrestling context, qualifies her as Nwagbolu- Omoko.

 

Mama was an epitome of generosity and among all other things, I shall never forget when Mama and Aunty Priscilla (Nee Mokogwu) Obinipko paid us a visit in the remote area where I lived in Lagos, (Okokomaiko ).  The road to this place, so bad and full of water lounge, and they came by a public transport. Till death this will remain indelible in my mind, all the way from Port Harcourt, whereas younger ones of the family find it very difficult to come with flimsy excuses.  She came along with a present and all the time will always bring crayfish for me whenever she sees anyone going to Lagos.   May your love and hospitality see you through and may the good Lord have unconditional mercy on your kind and gentle soul, and grant you eternal rest in His bosom in Jesus name.

 

Adieu, till  we meet to part no more.

Tribute to a Special Aunty
Though you have gone to be with the angels, mama lived a life worthy of celebration. Her kindness and love for mankind knew no boundaries, as mama welcomed everyone into her home with open hands. We were all treated as her children. In Mama, I saw kindness and simplicity at the extreme. Though you have left our world, your legacies and memories will forever live in our hearts. Rest in perfect peace Mama.

I will forever be indebted to your genuine passion to see everyone around you happy. Your humility and humanity were top-notch. You were very instrumental to the person I am today.

To my dear sweet mother. Mama Lolo Looking back at my life, I realize how many sacrifice you made for our family and countless others. I am so thankful for a mother whose life was a blessing and who loved with higher love. You gave selfisflessly to me and many others. I remember people calling you Omoko because you were so generous to others. Out of the abundance of your heart, you brought up and gave generously to so many others. You taught me how to navigate life in every stage. I remember learning how to trade at a very early age in your market. You were a fashion icon. You nurtured and loved me unconditionally. Coming from greatness, you always remained so humbled. I remember every single day you told be igadi which I will treasure for the rest of my life. Time will heal, but neither time nor reason will change the way I feel. The gates of memory wil never close. I miss you more than anyone knows and I am proud to call you my mom. You instilled in me the importance of education and vowed to raise your children in the legacy of education. I look at my children and they are who they are because of you. Isaiah 57:2 says those who enter higher upright enter into peace and I know you are in a peaceful place. Rest on until we see each other again. From Nneka Akosa Chima

Inclusion in my life is a gift and an honor. You've seen me as a baby, and you've seen me as a man with responsibilities. Your children were blessed to have you as their mother; you were kind, loving, active, and creative. You invested your best in me, and that's a part of what I still value and hold dear. You, more than most, understand the value of having close friends and family.

The world will be better off because of your incredible legacy. It's hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that you're gone and even harder to measure other people's lives against yours. When there's a major problem on the ground, you call me "NNABUIFE," and when things are going well, you call me "UGEH-ENYI." When I was with you, I felt like I was with someone very special. I've watched you get older, yet you've never stopped caring about others and displaying love. The kindness you have shown to others will always be remembered. When I think about you now, it's your sense of humor that I miss the most.

Please know that you are loved and remembered by everyone in my family and will never be forgotten. While I am eternally grateful to God for the life you lived, the joy you brought to so many people's lives, and the wisdom you imparted to those around you, I know that things will never be the same. It has led the way, and it will do so again in the future. We (my wife and I, and our three kids) will miss having you around. May the Lord offer you rest and tranquility, both now and always. Goodbye, Sweet Mama

From,
Ken Nnabuife Ugeh.

Ezinne, Ogbuenyi Stella Nwagbolu Uzoka a.k.a. Mama Wokoma as she was fondly called, was a great Entrepreneur, a loving and a caring mother with a heart of gold. Her home at No. 24 Wokoma Street, Port Harcourt was actually thought to be an extension of University of Port Harcourt Students Hostel as she accommodates freely any Illah and even none Illah indigens that have difficulty with accommodation. She was indeed a great mother to all, free and too generous to a rare gem.
Adieu mama. You were awesome in life. Thank God Almighty for the legacy you bequeathed to your children and all those who had the privilege to meet and know you.
Rest on, in the bosom of the Lord.

TRIBUTE TO OGBUENYI (MRS) NWAGBOLO AKOSA UZOKA.
Mama has gone to rest with our Lord Jesus Christ. She was one of the matriarchs of Illah people in Port Harcourt. Mama was a good,kind hearted and industrious woman.
As at 1972, I lived with mama and her husband before I started working with WILBROS NIG. LTD; I noticed Mama's generosity towards people around her.
Your demise broke my heart but God knows the best. May God in His infinite mercy grant your soul eternal rest in His blossom in Jesus name amen.

TRIBUTE TO MY MOTHER Rev.Evangelist Chris Akosa.
 Mummy JO, as you are fondly called by me and others, your demise from the planet earth left a great vacuum in the family. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of those who have given their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ. Psalms 116:15.
 I could remember remember those days you use to sing this song to me; Onoly-noloy Christopher... the song you fondly sing for me. It is quite too painful to know that we will miss you. Oh! the cruelty of death so exhibited with no arms to lean on. I can't help when I sit and reminiscence over the years we spent together, especially the last memory I had with you at the hospital, you said should hold your hands to pray with you. I held it for a moment. After the prayers, I never knew that will be my last time to relate with you .
Mummy Jo, you are indeed an embodiment of goodness and kindness,a devout christian,a successful business woman who has fostered many children,a counsellor; your admonition and encouragement lifted many from the shackles of life's challenges.They call you Omeogo and that is what you are.I cannot exhaust your virtues and sterling qualities,but as you have transcended to the celestial to be with the Lord,we are confident that your good deeds are footprints that will continue to speak in our lives.Your son

Rev.Evangelist Chris Akosa loves you!

Grandma’s room is empty; she moved away.
She departed this life and is gone to stay.
There was no struggle, but with great ease
she closed her eyes and took her leave.My Grandma was one sweet, loving soul.
I had no doubt where she would go.
We all knew Grandma walked with God
and bound for heaven to get her reward.No way we can know the lives she touched
because that gracious soul gave so much.
She would share her rice, money or meal.
We had many talks as she sipped her tea.
She shared years of wisdom with me.
She taught me family values and to be kind from her action cause they say actions speaks louder than voice ,
but she always had Jesus on her mind.Her love was evident in so many ways
in her kind words and on her smiling face.
Grandma’s leaving is heaven’s gain,
but one day I will see her again, I miss you grandma and I love you so much.

TRIBUTE TO MY DEAR MOTHER (Nneanyi Onyeoma)

My dear mother, it is very hard to say goodbye. You left a big vaccum that can never be filled.

Your love and care for me and my family will be remembered always.

Mama I will ever miss you.
You left Us with a big emptiness.

A great, compassionate and loving mother you are not just to me but to my children and grandchildren and the entire family.

Mama loosing you was a big blow.

Loving memories of you is what I depend on now!

You paid the price to support and assisted me in many ways possible.

Mummy Joe, everyday I think of you, you were my thoughts yesterday, today you are and tomorrow you will be and forever.

My dear loving mother, your heart of gold was unbiased, not just to your children but to everyone. With this sweet heart you showed genuine love and care for everyone that came your way. All that matters to you is that everyone should be comfortable and happy. Is very unfortunate that death had to take you.

May your gentle soul continue to rest in peace!

Adieu my Sweet Mother!

Adieu Nneanyi Obioma!

My beloved Mother in law was generous and kind hearted woman who impacted greatly to people in need . A woman with passion and heart of gold; we are griefing that that we miss you greatly but heaven is rejoicing that you joined the saints.  Late Chief (Mrs) Stella Uzoka '' or Mama as I usually called her, was the best anyone will ever think of having as a mother. She was receptive to visitors and also, were entertained . Consequently, she was humble, hard working and honest. You death is a huge loss to me How ever, I am consoled that you are resting peacefully in God's kingdom.
I missed you Mama. May your gentle soul continue to rest in peace. Amen

Death is inevitable, is a supreme price that all must pay! In spite of this, we still grieve when we lose our beloved ones.
The pain of losing my sweet and beloved Mom on 18th May,2022, has been extreme and emotionally hard on me to overcome. I never expected that day will be the last I saw my mom .
Ogbuenyi ! Mrs Stella Nwagbolo Akosa, I am still griefing at your demise and wondering where else to get the affection and care you gave equally to your children. As a child, recall in 1990,after the death of our father , my elder siblings were in the university, you provided and ensured they completed tertiary education.
Mami joe! as fondly called by us your children, was a definition of a virtuous woman and sweet Mother who deprived herself of basic comfort for good of the family.
You taught me to be generous and kind hearted to people in need of assistance. Even when you are bed bound at the hospital, you beckoned on me to give some hand gloves and detergent to a Nurse for an admitted patient in need.
My Sweetest Mom! you are my mentor, source of progress, courage, humility and generosity.
You are rare gem and one in a million, I am in pain and wish it was dream.your death is a huge loss to the family.
We are consoled that you lived a good life and also, comforted that your legacy lives on . I know you are resting well in God's bosom .

Very painful indeed. But in all, not with regrets. Ogbuenyi Mama Nwagbolu Akosa Uzoka touched my life as well as so many. In Port Harcourt, she was a mother for all. She fed many as far as you are from Illah resident or visits Port Harcourt. I regret her absence. I called her regularly and she notices my voice without mentioning my name with Shout "0mustBe" meaning Ogbuenyi Must Be. Mama, my prayers remains, may your soul and the souls of all the faithful departed through mercy of God continue to rest in peace for ever and ever. Amen

her Life

Ogbuenyi (Mrs) Stella Akosa Uzoka

Ogbuenyi (Mrs) Stella Akosa Uzoka was born into the family of Obi Ugeh of Umuosodi, Ajaji Village, Illah Town, Delta State. Her father was Late Pa Edward Esekaogwu Ugeh and her mother was Late Mrs. Emeshindo Ugeh (nee Odili).

Mama as fondly called lost her mother at a very tender age. She was the only child of her mother. After the death of her mother, she was sent by her Father to live with her aunt, Mrs Nwabuje Ifeobikwu at Umutei. She was later taken from her aunt to live with Mrs. Margaret Ajoh (Nee Chidi Mokogwu) and her husband in Rivers State where she was taught how to weave and make clothes.

Mama was very vast in many languages aside from her local Igbo language, she spoke Kalabari, Ogoni and Ikwere fluently.

At the age of 18 years old, mama relocated back to Illah with mama Margaret. Her beauty, intelligence and morals led her to her heartthrob. She got married to Ogbuenyi Paul Akosa from the Uzoka family in Ogbe-Olu, Illah Town, Delta State.After their traditional marriage, mama moved to Aba to join her husband who at that time was working at J. Allens. Pa Paul was so accommodating and helpful. He welcomed everyone to his home, in fact his home was the first point of call for any relation who came to Aba and mama did not fail in her duties to make sure that everyone who visited was comfortable in her home.

Mama was a huge blessing to Pa Paul and these blessings were evident in all areas of their lives.She was an industrious woman who never entertained idleness or laziness in any form. In her quest to succeed in life she started petty trading from her home which later expanded to include other businesses such as snuff and soap making.

In 1966 she did her white wedding. She married Pa Paul Akosa Uzoka at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic church, Aba.

Shortly after her wedding the civil war started in 1967, and mama had to relocate with her family to Illah. She remained in Illah until the war ended in 1970.

After the war, her husband-Pa Paul was transferred to Port-Harcourt and mama had to relocate with her family to Port-Harcourt where she continued her business. She became well known in her snuff business, and she introduced many men and women into her line of business and also encouraged them by giving them goods on credit.

Mama had no formal education, however, she improved herself by attending an Adult Education Program. She was able to read, write and sign documents where necessary. She was someone who ensured she was self-sufficient at all times and learnt to drive even when it was not very common for women to drive at that time.

Mama was a devout Catholic and was the patroness of Catholic Choir Diobu Port-Harcourt. She was crowned with the title LIFE MOTHER before she relocated to Asaba in Delta State.

She was the founder and President of Otu Ebeifedimmadi in Illah the once reigning and colorful Otu-Egwu in Illah.

Mama traveled to many places both Home and Abroad. She visited Los Angeles and San Francisco in the USA.

She was ADA ISI of the Obi Ugeh Royal Family.

She lived a simple life. She was generous, caring, humble and loved everyone. She was called a woman of Gold (Omoko), a woman of substance who instilled morals in all who came across her. She encouraged and trained many successful people. She was very proud of her family (Uzoka, Ugeh and Odili). She was a gift to the world.

Mama passed on peacefully on Wednesday 18th of May 2022 at exactly 7.00 a.m. She was 86 years.

Ogbuenyi (Mrs) Stella Comfort Nwagbolo Akosa Uzoka leaves behind a remarkable legacy.

She is survived by children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, brothers, Sisters, nephews, nieces, cousins, in-laws and friends.

A glorious exit of a gentle, loving, caring and peaceful woman, A mother to all. An ICON.

Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord and let Perpetual Light continue to shine upon her.

May her gentle Soul Rest in perfect peace.

AMEN

SLEEP ON…...
