This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Oludolapo Jaiyesimi 50 years old , born on December 7, 1969 and passed away on December 11, 2019. We will remember her forever.

From childhood friend to Dolly P to Wifey (Biodun Jaiyesimi - Husband)

Grateful for the Mother that you were ... 
Grateful for the home builder that you were ...
Grateful for the Helper that you were ... 
Grateful for the Child of God that you were ... 
Grateful for the Graceful being that you were ...
Grateful for your life... 
Grateful for the Lord's Love towards you...
Grateful for Supernatural Blessings ... 
You were my little sunshine. There is nothing in this world that compares to the joy I had when I was around you. They say Love is blind but I saw it through your eyes. You gave me so much happiness and I was determined to give you nothing less. You turned the carefree Jaiye into a real man. You turned my mistakes into a plan. You are truly the woman I loved, the centre of my joy. No one else could have made me say “I do”. No matter what you went through, I was always around you. When you were complicated, I still loved you. When things fell apart, I still loved you . No matter what life threw at you, my heart belonged to you. 
Beautiful things are not always good but good things are always beautiful. You were both beautiful and good. I thank the Lord above for giving you to me . Forever is you and me.

Death be not proud...
For our sister , die not, poor death ...
Sister Dolly , the few years I have known you I have admired you for your beauty, elegance, poise and your kind heartedness .
This was not the plan , the last time we saw in May we planned celebrations not known that would be the last time I would see you .
Who are we to blame God , He is unquestionable !
Heaven was missing an angel , Heaven could not wait any longer even God couldn't wait any longer
Our tears would not bring you back
Our loss , Heaven gains
You will be sorely missed.
Rest in peace.

''Has anybody here,
Seen my old friend Dolapo,
Can you tell me, where she's gone?
She loved a lot of people,
But it seems the Good die young
I just looked around,
And she was gone.''
REST IN PEACE MY DEAR DOLLY P !!!!!

My Darling Dolly...Gone too soon!! But God knows best as you are in a much better place. A place of everlasting peace. However Dolly, you will forever remain in my heart and I will always remember our deep, and serious, yet humorous conversations. Memories of challenges we have shared together, good times and laughter shared together, and family time spent together.
A consistent friend you were, caring, very unassuming, yet very determined and strong. Dolly, you fought till the end, won the battle and you are now resting in peace with your Heavenly Father. Good night to a special friend, a wonderful mother, a lovely wife and homemaker
Rest in peace Dolly.

Aunty Dolly!
You were my sister's bestie (Bukky Kane).

Where do I start from?
A best friend can never be replaced, but will always be remembered.

I miss the fun of being with you any time I am in Chelmsford.
I never knew death was going to snatch you away when I sat beside you on the sofa in your living room on Sunday November 23rd.... you whispered to me that you knew your hubby was planning a surprise for you and we both laughed over it.
Sleep on beloved sis

I only knew you briefly through a very good friend. From what I have heard, I can tell that you were a beautiful soul, both inside and out.
May our Good Lord receive you into his kingdom, forgive your sins and shine perpetual light upon you forever.
Dear Lord, please keep the family under your guardian wings and comfort them during this difficult period and forever.
Sleep well and sleep tight!
Posted by Bukky Kane on December 16, 2019
Words are not enough for me to express how my family and I feel about your untimely demise. We will miss you immensely. 
I am still hoping that this is a bad dream, I'm really struggling to accept this. Especially when I remember all our conversations and plans and prayers for the future, I feel robbed.
But I will take solace in the the good times that we have spent together and accept that God knows best and you're in a better place.
May the Lord comfort your entire family and friends.
Sun're oremi atata.
You will never be forgotten.

Dolly your beautiful spirit will live on through your dearly husband and children, and they will always know how much you loved them. I know that you will tried with all your heart to stay for them, but God called you, and you had to go.

During your illness Dolly, I know that there were three things that kept you going, your husband and children as well as hope, otherwise to face another day would have been tough, and I know how many days you must have had like that. Now my hope is that you rest in peace knowing you did all that you could and that your husband and children will be fine. It’s so comforting to know that you will always be with each and everyone of us in our hearts. It's okay to miss you Dolly, it's okay to cry. Just know I'll never forget you. This isn't a permanent goodbye. I’ll see you again, my dear friend and love you always.

Dolapo!, I have only known you for a short time, got to know you more by doing school run for the boys. We always chat about the boys and life generally.
You were fun to be around with. You will be greatly missed.
I pray that you rest in peace with the lord.
Till we meet again. Rest in peace.
Posted by Laura Jeyibo on December 16, 2019
Dolly P! I only met you just over three years ago at a very trying time in my life and you just came into my life and became my buddy and I feel like I’ve known you all my life! You don’t do half measures, your friendship is all or nothing. This time last year when I was stuck in lagos, you drove to my house, picked up my children and cared for them till I returned. You’re always willing to do over and beyond for those around you. You were a friend indeed. I’ll miss you my dear friend but I take solace that God knows best! You have run your race! May God grant you eternal rest! Sun re o!

Dolly, a beautiful soul you are, you are.
Left us all, and gone so far.
The pain is, and still so raw.
We will miss you, forever more.

Dolly, we met through football, you brought us laughter and joy. We would chat about your glamorous clothes, hair and makeup. You would share the videos.
I ask God Almighty to give you a place in the highest of heavens, as your precious soul is laid to rest.
Til we meet again ... lots of love Ghaz xx

Dolly,
Forever you will be missed for your true and good heart. I saw you last in Church in October when you gave me my gele for your 50th birthday party, never knew that will be the last time I will see you.
The good memories you left can never be easily forgotten. Sleep well in the bosom of of Lord Jesus till we meet again.

You’d randomly stop over, to and from the boys Soccer games in all weather... A loving wife and dedicated Mother you were.... Chitchatting about the randomness of Life etc

I remember especially the Warmth of your Heart, memories of sitting in your kitchen and you making sure everyone was ok.

Dolly, I remember You and especially your Kindheartedness and your cheeky smile.

It’s a tough one. Dolly? God comfort Biodun, the boys and the entire family ❣️

My Heart will Always Remember you....
Always. X

I was shocked and couldn’t sleep, when I heard the news that you had passed (I still can’t believe I am writing this tribute). Although, we hadn’t seen each other for a little while, but we were very close growing up. I remember my late mum being very fond of you. And Just this last summer, I saw your sister at a technology event in London and I remember Fumi taking my selfie at the event and texting it to you, and you immediately replied back (screaming with happiness) to your sister and you said in your text, is that Y******?! Then, both me and Fumi burst into laughters that you still recognise me in the picture she sent (though we hadn’t seen each other in a little while). How I wished, I had seen you before you passed. That’s why we all have to reach out to each other, even if it’s just every now and then. Biodun, I know both of you were childhood sweethearts, and it will be extremely difficult for you and the children at this time, but time is a healer and please take care and may her soul continue to rest in perfect peace.

I’m still in shock and cannot believe Sis Dolly is gone. A beautiful soul is gone and even though she’s left we know she’s gone to be with the Lord.
She was always full of joy, very welcoming and always pleased to see you. I saw her over the summer holidays and did not know it was going to be the last time I would see her. My heartache for the whole family and her dearest friends and especially the children and Bro Biodun but I know she will want us to remember the good times.
My dearest Sis rest in perfect peace until we meet again. 
Posted by Jacqueline Omojola on December 14, 2019
Dolly I am still in shock. I asked God why?
Kind caring always ready to help. Your words of encouragement during my trying times. The last time we saw you drove for hours just to see my daughter when you needed rest yourself. Dolly rest only God understands. May the good lord strengthen Biodun and be with the boys .
Rest Dolly rest

Dolly you left way too soon but God knows best. I still wish this were a dream and I will wake up soon. You were simply a lovely, caring and friendly woman. This is a big shock indeed. You will be missed and may God be with your family. Rest on dear dolly.
Posted by Tola Gbadebo on December 14, 2019
Dolapo, this is unbelievable.If I hadn't been to your house,I would still have remained in denial.It was only a few days ago, I wished you happy 50th birthday...only a few weeks ago, we thanked God you were out of the hospital.

You were a pillar in your home and poured out your life to your husband and sons. May they be strengthened.

You lived life to the fullest as though you knew you won't be around for very long..

You are in a better place but it doesn't numb the pain...this isn't how we envisaged this year would end. No-one is truly guaranteed tomorrow!
May God teach us to number our days right!

We met very briefly. We had dinner together. My first impression was wow what a cute and gorgeous lady. It’s sad you have left us so soon and at a time when we would have met again to celebrate. God has you now so I can only say you will be sorely missed. Rest in perfect peace Dolly.
Posted by Sarah Oyefeso on December 14, 2019
Dolapo this is so hard to believe, I prayed that your soul rest in the bossom of the almighty God. The lord will comfort Biodun, the children and the family

Dear Dolapo
I remember the cool babe back in the good old days at Ire Akari.
Isolo city chemist was a house hold name for us we buy our drugs there or no where.
I promised to pop in and see you at Chelmsford but unfortunately didn't make it to yours. I wish I paid you that visit. I didn't realise you were going through any health challenges. It was a shock to see your passing on face book now.
Oh my God Dolly, you are in a much better place. Heaven has received an angel. Rest in peace.
Posted by Anthony Omage on December 15, 2019
Kind, gentle and extremely loyal...Dolapo you are sorely missed. Rest in perfect peace
Posted by Funmi BT on December 14, 2019
Dolapo, it's still a shock to many of us that you've gone to be with the Lord. You always had a lovely smile along with lovely words when ever we met. Your peaceful demeanor was always one to admire. We thank God for your life, thank God for the beacon you were to many. May the Lord comfort and shower his love on your husband, your boys and your entire family. Gone but never forgotten sweet Dolapo
Posted by Yetunde Fabunmi Fayanju on December 14, 2019
Dolapo is so hard to take in that you are gone.. But I thank God because He knows best. Rest in peace sis in the bosom of God..

My ever vibrant and beautiful friend/sister Dolly! You fought a good fight; you ran your race in grand style. Thank you for all the love you radiated and for being a blessing to many. We are ever so broken, but we know you’ve earned your rest in the bosom of your maker. Your love in our hearts we’ll eternally keep.

I remember travelling on the same flight with you Dolly to aunty Simbo's 50th
We talked everything from politics to business to love and relationships.
I will always remember your solid advice in every area.
Ah you are gone too soon am confused bewildered and saddened that I couldn't continue to build on what we started.

All I can say is that you are loved ' you are highly thought of

Much love

Aunty Dolly...I have cried today that my head is pounding...I realise only now how much I took for granted that you will always be here. Memories have flooded back tenfold of how you would look after me in Grays and Chelmsford with Naija food, malt and relaxation for weekends away from uni when going home to Newcastle was too far. You truly provided a home away from home and yet I feel I didn’t spend enough time with you as I got older cos to me you would always be here. I imagined you would dance at my wedding as you did at Deji’s in Jos, I imagined you would help my mum pick lace, caterers, decorators for our side ensuring it would look chic and just keep her calm! I pray for the kind of love that you and Uncle Biodun have for each other. You took great pride in your role as a mother and wife and you did it with unwavering excellence for them, and that is a lesson you have taught me well. Even when I said ‘see you later Aunty Dolly’, I thought Aunty will get through this....tears flow as I write this cos I will truly miss you. May God be our Rock for us all during this time.

Wow!!! Dolapo, you were finally laid to rest today. The turnout is a testament to how much you were loved and impacted on people’s lives. I remember how we met many years ago through the Adeniyi’s. I was their guest at Ayomide’s christening, you were amazed at how I danced my heart out celebrating your bundle of joy, without meeting or knowing you, my response was I was happy to partake in your joy after hearing the story of your journey, and we became friends.
My last chat with you in Lakeside Zara some weeks before your passing to glory remains very fresh, I am glad we hugged and smiled at your cheeky adventure in the store.
Continue to rest in peace Dolapo

Wonderful wife to my friend

Faithful, solid and reliable. Stood with her husband through thick and thin. Many women will stay during rosy times but very few will stay during difficult times. Dolapo stood with Abbey through the rough and tumble of life. An exceptional lady. Worth her weight in gold. RIP 

Beautiful inside and outside

I got to know Dolly thru her sister, Funmi, a few years back. We became friends as our paths crossed often and we attended the same church and also share mutual friends. Dolly, your passing has shocked me and is still shocking me. You were jovial, always smiling and always helpful. Although heaven has gained an angel you’d always be remembered as an earthly angel. RIP
