2 years and still strongly in our memories. You will always be missed and never forgotten. Still remember your calm manner, beautiful smile and just pleasant sole. What you lacked in years you more than compensated in character. May God give us the ability to continue to bear your loss. May your family have the strength to hold on until one day when we "shall all be in one accord". God bless you and your soul, forever...

Your smile was infectious and calming every time.
We worked together in ikeja in 93. I just thought to search for you and to my complete suprise and sadness I learnt of your demise.
May your soul Rest In Peace. May God give your family the fortitude to bear this loss!

Funke, gone too soon.

The Medilag jewel of a soul

Two and half decades since we all thronged out Medilag New Great Hall

Took our oat to "do no harm"

Taking away with us great ideals 

Walking out into the world unknown 

Biding each other goodbye and goodluck

Oblivious it was our last together 

Our sojourn pulling apart thereof 

Our ways diverting in this unforgiving world 

Our hearts finding emerging new focus

Many of the old memories dropped

The special memories of Medilag, Idi-Araba surpressed

The ideals of Idi-Araba many adandoned

Clearly Funke did not

Testimonies of Funke's life bear witness

The words of many speak for themselves

Funke held firmly to those great ideals

Many have testified to her selflessness 

Many speak of her unrivalled generosity 

Her avid committment is consistently attested to

Commited to friends, family and strangers 

Committed to humanity 

Committed to God; importantly so

God will not abandon his own

He prepared the passage for Funke

God rekindled the ties and bonds of those great Medilag years

Just in time for Funke's passing on

A reunion which many thought was for later activities

Could it be God's set up?

The speed and enthusiasm of the Medilag reunion 

It could only be God's set up

Our coming together again just days before Funke's transition

I believe this is God's set up

And we now know better

Yes a divine set for a special woman of God

Funke, our Medilag rose

You certainly lived a good and dedicated life

Not just like a candle in the wind

May your gentle soul rest in real perfect peace.

We will never walk alone.

Adieu my classmate, friend, colleague and Sister in the Lord 

Farewell Funke.

Really gone too soon.

Adieu, the darling daughter of Jibowu.

Till we meet to part no more. 

-Kunle Ogunde

Dear Funke, it is amazing how time flew by since graduation. Even though that was the last time I saw you, I felt a sense of loss and sadness hearing about your sudden passing. May God send his Holy Spirit to comfort your family and loved ones. Rest in perfect peace.
Posted by Ebele Chira on July 1, 2016
You clearly touched many lives during your time in this life, a time that was cut much too short in the minds of all of us that knew you. I am glad to have trained with you those years past and I wish we could have met up at least one more time in this life. But I know you are resting in the bosom of the Lord, a thought that offers some consolation. Farewell gentle soul.
Posted by Ijeoma Van-Lare on July 1, 2016
Funke, finally, I found the courage to write something here. The journey to accepting that you have left this realm was long and tortuous. Thank you for making me your friend. We did not see very often recently, but when we did, you once again were my 'Aunty Funke' and I was your 'niece'. I don't know how this our aunty-niece relationship started in Queens College, but it lasted over 30 years of our knowing each other. I will never forget you. I am so glad you are at rest with our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. That's why I'm comforted and confident that we will see each other again. Bye Aunty.

Jives.....still remember seeing the news flash on my screen of 'the death of Funke' and I kept saying to myself please God not Jives only to open the thread and it was 'you'...Utter shock, darkness, disbelief, denial all at once. Kept thinking why all day....but we are mere mortals. Goodbye & rest in peace.........
Posted by Grace Iwajomo on June 29, 2016
My dear SIL, Sissy Funke, 'twas a shock to hear of ur demise. Each time we see, twas always "e kasan aunty, how is uncle". So sad you are gone too soon. Redeemed Trinity Tabernacle parish will forever remember your contributions to the growth of the church. May your gentle soul rest in peace with the Lord, Amen
Posted by Tolu Oyesanya on June 29, 2016
Dear sister,

It was a shocking news to hear considering your profession and your way of life. But i see this as a clear indication that the Almighty God love you most!!!

Continue to rest in the blossom of your creator.
Posted by Bisi Ogunbase on June 29, 2016
Funke, it's almost unbelievable but it's true....you've gone home!
I remember u way back in QC- simple quiet and with such an amiable personality, and u remained the same.
I pray God upholds your entire family, strengthen and comfort them all.
Good nite. .. ... .... .....

Dr Jibowu!!! Your death is one too much for the entire project, for me I will miss you dearly,A great leader, caring woman and ever smiling,I have only known you for 9 months, but seem like ages.I was waiting for you to come to work on Tuesday to give you your ipele and thank you for the plenty chocolates you dropped on my desk the previous day.It is very hard to let your memories go,but I pray God grants the entire family the fortitude to bear this huge loss.Love you and pray God blesses your soul dear Dr.Funke!!
Posted by Oluwatoyin Adebanjo on June 28, 2016
Our own dear sister Funke,

Who wont have something to say about you, it should be someone who never knew you because all those who knew you both from a distance or closely do have a lot to say about you. Your departure is indeed a sad one but the JOY in it is that you are with our Savior, Jesus Christ. We love you but God loves you more. Rest on sis till we meet to part no more. Amen. Oluwatoyin (Trinity Tabernacle)
Posted by Kelechi Enweruzo-Amaefule on June 28, 2016
Funke,
You will forever be remembered.

Adieu "my personal person" (as we call ourselves)
Posted by Kola Falayajo on June 28, 2016
Shocked!!! to say the least, when I heard yesterday. But then it is comforting to know that she is with the Lord, the memory of the Just is blessed. May God comfort, family, friends, colleagues, everyone affected.
Posted by Anthonia Ibeme on June 28, 2016
Beloved Sister,

I do not know you a lot; but i cannot forget in a hurry, the beautiful smile with which you greeted me each time our path crossed in the office. I wish i had spoken more to you and enjoyed more of those smiles; then perhaps i wouldn't feel this sad. Continue to rest in the Bosom of the Lord.

Anty Sleep well, you have paid your dues. Really sad writing this for you, too short a time spent with you. 

I will never forget your kind words, advises and the way you laugh. Your support brought me this far. 


Good bye Anty Lammiiiii..hard to say anyway but I have to say it. 

What Will Be Said About Me

Shared by Oluwatoyin Adebanjo on June 28, 2016

Dear Sis,

In the bathroom this morning, as i kept asking myself why you had to live now, so many thoughts were in my mind and head but the pressing one was ''WHAT WILL BE SAID ABOUT ME WHEN ITS MY TURN TO GO''. Death is certain but we all need to check ourselves. So much has been said about our dear sister Funke and they are not cooked up stories, they are the truth and nothing but the truth. Will i get 1% of this?, Hmmmmm


Rest on Sis  

My Sister. My Friend

Shared by Chinyere Ekechuku Onosode on June 23, 2016

Jives. 

We started off  as roomates in school (and remained roomates for the duration of medical school)  but transitioned into friends and then sisters.

Beautiful, Generous, Gentle but firm when necessary. Witty, Smart as a tack. Dependable. No drama but yet that wonderful complexity to your sweet simplicity. Your self confidence which could not help but manifest externally in your own unique steady stride. The elegance with which  you carried yourself... 

I have no one story set in time but rather a continual one because Funke, you gave me a home away from home for my 8 years plus in Lagos. You and your family  welcomed me graciously and made my time in school painless. You were always there for me, for my Mom in my absence.  I just had to call. 

Last October, I couldnt see you but spoke to you from your house in Ikeja while you were in Abuja.  I am just so glad I got to talk to you a few weeks ago.

Why did this happen?  Knowing that you trusted in the Lord and that it was His decision, I have no choice but to accept his will.

My prayer is that  God will give Mummy, Remi, Toyin and Fola and the rest of your family and friends, the strenght to cope with your passing on. May we all take heart knowing that one day, we will meet again where there will be no sorrow or parting of ways but rather a resumption of where we left off. Until then Jives.
