ForeverMissed
This memorial website was created in memory of Oluwakemi Adetayo Oseni, 41 years old, born on May 22, 1980, and passed away on July 2, 2021.

She was a devoted wife to Emmanuel and mother to her beloved son Samuel.
Kemi was a strong Christian and was devoted to her faith in God. She was heavily involved in the church choir and loved to sing and continually sang right up to the end.
Kemi touched many lives directly and indirectly, always encouraging, uplifting people with her words of faith, comfort, wisdom and prayers, strengthening all around her.
Kemi always had a smile for everybody, very generous, humble, selfless and many have referred to her as an angel.
Kemi will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Gone too soon but we are grateful to God for a life well lived.

Miss you everyday & everytime that goes by. I love you so much.

Kemi, you were undoubtedly my favourite person to be with in the office. We used to joke around in the kitchen area, sharing stories and generally putting the world to rights. I know how much you loved your family and my heart goes out to them after your tragic passing.

I miss you lots but your memories will live on. The world just lost one of its best but heaven just gained a new favourite. Take care

Dearest Kemi,

How shocked I was to learn of your passing to be an angel in heaven. I will never forget the beautiful smile that always greeted me when I walked through the office door in London, always immaculately dressed with pink lipstick and the words - "Morning Ma'mam", so polite and gracious, you knew ALL our names. You will be sorely missed, caring and thoughtful, nothing was ever too much trouble.
My heart goes out to your family, sending my condolences.
You will be missed.

How beautiful is the foot of those that preached the gospel. How blessed are they. Aunty K, you are a woman of outstanding character, so loving, hospitable, diligent and God fearing.
You will always be forever remembered. It's great to come in contact with your family. Rest in the Lord's bossom. The Okesamis.

I met Kemi in 2015 when we were both working in Canary Wharf.
We sat next to each other every day for a whole year And She became my lovely friend. I discovered that she was one of the the most precious and kindest souls I had ever known.
 Often she would come into work with an extra lunch box she had made for me. She made the best Jollof rice and ChinChin. She even would make extra for me to give To my mum. That was the sort of thoughtful person Kemi was.
She would always Be there for you and never ever forgot your birthday.
We used to laugh so much together at work and I always looked forward to coming in and seeing her beautiful big smile.
I will never forget her.
Kemi you were one in a million and I love you. Fly high with the Angels you beautiful soul.

Though we never met but had a good relationship with your husband and our moments together shows you are great in life and believe also great at death. No doubt you continue to rest in the bosom of your lord Jesus Christ till resurrection morning.

The news of your transition to glory came to us as a shock. You were such a wonderful woman with the heart of gold. We find solace in your service to God and good deed to humanity while on earth. May the Lord preserve all that you have left behind. Rest on in the bossom of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Posted by Janet Adetayo on July 14, 2021
My dearest sister ,

It’s still a shock, & this will always be painful to us. I lost a big part of who I am, this feels like a dream everyday, I miss you so much - the whole family misses you.

Thank you for being a big protector to us, thank you for teaching us what it means to be an Angel on earth, thank you for teaching us the true meaning of humility, love & care. You always looked out for us, you never forgot to tell people how much you missed them & how much you loved them.

I love you so so much & I’m happy so many people got to experience you in the way that we did from churches, to work places, etc. Your impact on everyone is a testament to the beautiful person you are. You went too soon but you lived a life that was so impactful, each & every single one of us who experienced you till the very end are touched in a special way that only God can describe.

I know you’re always looking down on Uncle Wale, Samuel & the rest of the family. We can’t do this without you, I am lost without you my sister but I will always hold on to memories, conversations and laughs we had even till the very end you were still looking out for your family. We can’t ever forget you, you live in every single one of our hearts.

Awa Omo Adetayo as you say!
I promise to make you proud.

God knows best & He loves you more than anyone else so I know you’re resting in His eternal peace & glory rejoicing.

None other than your baby sis,
Yewande Adetayo

Oluwakemi!!! as you always referred to yourself.... To say that I am going to miss you is an understatement. who will I come to for Songs? my very own in-house choir mistress, the one who even while Ill was still making us laugh.... I want to thank you for your kindness and for always being there to listen, I will miss your jokes sha!
Oluwakemi you were a Gem and no words can describe the void you have left, but I know you in our Fathers house. 
Rest on Sister till we meet again xx

I will always have a piece of my heart that smiles whenever I think about you x
Posted by John Mozie on July 13, 2021
So hard to believe you're gone. My heart breaks for your family, especially Samuel! A mother like you is just irreplaceable!
Goodbye my dear friend. You always gave so much and then some. How does one begin to describe your essence to a stranger? You will never be forgotten.
May God keep and bless you now and always.
Posted by Yemisi Ayetan on July 13, 2021
Oluwakemi my sister, my friend and my prayer partner. Words still fail me to convey how shocked I am by your loss.

What a beautiful soul you were and a shining light. Always smiling, always positive, always encouraging and always putting others needs before your own. So humble, respectful and caring of all. Your faith in God was unshakable and admirable, oh how you loved to worship Him. I pray that God comforts and strengthens Brother Emmanuel, Samuel, your family and all whom you left behind.

Rest well angel, I know you are worshiping the One whom you loved to your heart’s content.

You will forever be in our hearts.

Kemi, still cannot believe, you are gone. You were always there to greet us with bright smile that lit up the room. Will always remember you for your helpful advice and funny chats.
I am honoured to have known you, even if it was for a short time. You will be greatly missed. Rest in peace.
Posted by Richard Elysee on July 13, 2021
Kemi you were such a gentle, honest, compassionate person, and always treated those around you with so much love and care. As a colleague you were professional and so down to earth, that you managed to make friends with everybody at work. You will continue to inspire many of those around you in how to live life and treat others. I wish you peace and all your family and friends strength and blessings during these times. xxx
Posted by Tricia Newton on July 13, 2021
Words cannot express the sadness I'm feeling. I can't believe that you are no longer with us. You were a kind, sweet and beautiful person. But I will always remember you as a wonderful and loving mother...your eyes used to light up when you told me all the funny stories about your son. I am so glad that I have known you...even only for a short time.
You will always be in our hearts. Sleep in peace beautiful angel.
Posted by Tola Akintola on July 12, 2021
Oluwakemi, hmm, what can I say. I'm shedding tears as I write but that's only because I miss you so much. I was going to call you on Friday and then I remembered. The football was going on and all I could think of was the comments you would have made. We have been doing our Thursday prayers with the thought that you will come back soon but here we are, we'll have to continue with you in our hearts instead. It still feels like a dream to me. I remember telling you about my dream and I was so sure we would get through but now I understand that dream better. I thank God for the faith I have in Jesus because this is the 3rd strike and I'm finding that I can only survive these battle by holding onto his words.

As many people have mentioned, there was no dull moment with you. You were always a ray of sunshine. You always looked out for everyone even those who tried to pull you down. You sang most of the time, gave me list of songs for me to lead at church. I called you a concordance of songs, because they just rolled off your lips easily.

'Iya Mi' as you would often refer to me during discussions, I miss you, I will miss you and I will surely continue to miss you.

Rest well in the bosom of our Lord my dear sister and friend.
Posted by JoJo Stead on July 12, 2021
To my colleague, friend and sister in Christ, oh how I will miss you, the person that greeted me every morning with ''hello my sister''. Every time I walked pass the reception desk she would check if I was ok and if I wasn't, she would encourage me with words of power, the word of God and strengthen my soul. We also had so many conversations about our hair changes, make-up and pink lipstick - oh such a ray of sunshine to me.  Kemi has left a mark on my life and the lives of many she touch with her smile, kindness and professionalism. Rest in peace beautiful soul now you are in the arms of your saviour my Queen Kemi, until we meet again. Love you my sister - JoJo xxxxx
Posted by Matt Dooley on July 12, 2021
It was an honour to know and work with Kemi. Especially in this past year when it was often just a few people here a given day. I never spoke with Kemi when she wasn't happy, smiling and positive. She always made the people around her feel appreciated and she was usually the last person I spoke with before leaving on Friday afternoons, always with her wishing me well. She was respected by everyone and will be greatly missed. Our sincere condolences to her family, we are heartbroken with you.
Posted by Marty Loeber on July 12, 2021
Kemi,
It is so hard to accept that you have left. Such a warm and gracious person, a friendly face to see every morning and then when I could visit. Your passing has made think of all the time we spent working on the choir.

It is hard in times like this to see any justice in this. Who lives? Who dies early? Who suffers? But while the "Why?" goes unanswered, we are called to faith and trust in the living God who created us.

There is a beautiful Swedish hymn, Children of the Heavenly Father. I know Kemi is experiencing the truth in this verse:

"Though He giveth or He taketh
God His children ne'er forsaketh
His the loving purpose solely
To preserve them pure and holy"



Posted by James Glasscock on July 12, 2021
Kemi, I still cannot believe you are gone. When I started at WFC 6 years ago you made me feel so welcome. Your smile everyday made the place light up. You have been a friend as well as a work colleague and I will miss you so very much. I will never forget you. 
Posted by Natalie Hayward on July 12, 2021
Words cannot begin to describe the shock and sadness on learning of Kemi's passing.
Kemi was a work colleague and more. She lit up the reception desk and was always there to greet you with her bright smile and a warm welcome. 
Kemi I shall miss your bubbly personality and our chats / giggles.

Every now and then you meet a person who truly lights up the world - Kemi was one of these very special people.
R.I.P. Kemi
Posted by Maria James on July 12, 2021
Kemi, words fail me to even begin to say how saddened we all feel. Your passing has left us with sorrow but if you were here now to advise us, you would offer some words of wisdom and a smile and help light up our hearts once again. You were needed someplace else, that the only reason I can think you have gone so soon. Your smile each day and thoughtfulness carried me through.  I miss you Kemi. X
Posted by Mark Maguire on July 12, 2021
Kemi, I can't believe you're gone. Words cannot begin to describe how much your passing has affected me. You were a work colleague whose friendship I treasured deeply.

You greeted me every morning with a smile, and stopping by for a chat with you would be the highlight of my day, every day.

You will be missed Kemi. May you rest in peace.
Posted by Eki Odiase on July 10, 2021
This is a massive shock to me. Still don't know if this is a dream that I need to wake up from. I still don't believe this is real. I lack words to express my feelings right now. Oh God! Please let my beautiful kind hearted worshipper, sis. Kemi RIPP in Your bosom IJMN. Amen. I will definitely miss you my dearest choir leader . May God comfort your beautiful family IJMN. Amen Success Odiase

Today we say goodbye to our dearest Kemi. Kemi has slipped the surly bonds of Earth to touch the face of God. She leaves a huge emptiness in the hearts of all of us who loved her.

Kemi is like a daughter to me and my husband. During her time on earth, she never failed to make us and many others smile. Kemi was a woman of faith and woman after God's own heart. Her commitment to the things of the kingdom and her unwavering faith in God - even till her last days on earth - was exemplary. Even up to the last minute, she stood firm in the Lord. She never once cast away her confidence in God. What a woman!

Kemi, goodbye is the hardest and saddest word we never wish to tell you, but there is nothing we can do about your departure, because it is the fulfillment of the scripture. Though you are gone physically, you will always be alive in the memory of those who love and appreciated you.

As a believer, death is only the beginning of eternal life with God. Kemi fought a good fight but now she's been called to eternal glory. We will miss you dearly. Rest in Peace our dearest daughter in christ. Mummy & Daddy Adedeji

You contributed in teaching me how to let things go, you will say my sister forgive and let go.

You are a great planner, organiser, and a good singer, you make things happen, you are full of love, my gist mate and prayer partner.

I will miss you choir leader I called you.

Sleep well beautiful soul

You mean the world to me and my family and we are lost without you.

Thank you for brightening my life with so much love and care. Thank you.

Sleep well Sis, we love you but God loves you more.

I am reeling at the loss of my dear Kemi, who was a work sister to me. Kemi’s beautiful heart shone through daily in her beautiful smile and the way she was always there for others. 

I will never forget how Kemi supported me when my sister passed in 2019. Up to the very end, Kemi strove to be strong for everyone else and didn’t want to cause worry and would respond to a concerned text with a beautiful message despite the pain she must have been experiencing.

Kemi, You were sent to brighten our lives and warm our hearts – You will be dearly missed xx

Words cannot express or quantify the void your passing has created. You are miss and the whole family continues to miss you. You were our angel and now heaven has gained you. Oluwakemi, your spirit lives on and we will meet again and part no more. Sleep on dear.
Posted by Mel Wyse on July 7, 2021
It is sometimes said that there are people who are too lovely, too kind, too generous, literally too good for this world. That is you Kemi.
I still can't believe that you are gone, but The Good Lord has received His precious Kemi home.
I know you will be up there watching over Samuel and Emmanuel. We will keep an eye on them too.
Rest well Kemi. You are missed. Xx
Posted by Tola Alli-Lawal on July 7, 2021
Kemi.....shocked is an understatement...
You are one of the nicest people I ever met. Beautiful in and out... ever smiling and always willing to help.
I guess you are in a better place. God knows best.
You will trully be missed.
May your gentle and beautiful soul rest in peace.
You will always be fondly remembered xx
