What shall I say unto the Lord all I have to say is thank you Lord. I return all the glory to the King of kings, Almighty Father, the unquestionable God. It is a great privilege to know my beautiful Mummy, Professor Oladimeji, a mother, a teacher, a mentor and a prayer warrior. You are indeed a blessing to me and anyone who ever had encounter with you. Your word of encouragements and prayers during good and bad moments will forever linger in my heart. I appreciate God Almighty for allowing you to be part of my success story in life. I could remember when I was under training with you. You kept on emphasising that " won ma see iru eyi fun iwo naa, wa se orire.
Mummy, your legacy and footprint as the mother of clinical psychology in Nigeria will never be forgotten. Thanks for setting the pace. I pray that Almighty God with His infinite mercies will grant you eternal rest, bless and uphold all yours. Rest on Mummy.
Oluwafisayo Adebimpe.

Such a shock to hear you’re no more, dear Yetunde!
Can never forget our Ife days, your accommodation each time I came to visit, when others would not come near me within a pole, after my marriage broke up; the jolly visits to you in Cardiff etc.
My sweet friend, ‘Mama Seyi’ , Goodnight. Laala alagbase ti tan!

Ahh Igi to ba to kii pe nigbo! The entire Nigerian Association of Clinical Psychologist have lost an Icon. A selfless leader and a very loving personality. I have known you since i was a trainee in clinical psychology and have seen how devoted you are to the course of Clinical psychology in Nigeria. Your professionalism is inspiring and i was hoping i will still learn more from you! Your guidance is immeasurable when i first got to UK. Your exit sting! But yes, our loss, heaven's gain. Our consolation is this "O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 1 Corinthians 15:55; "He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it" (Is 25:8). Sleep on beloved and see you in the morning.
We miss you.

We'll say good night here and good morning up there.
- John R. Rice

Goke and I found it very difficult to write a tribute each time we visited the house. It seemed almost alien to be writing one for someone who was so near and such a part of our regular activities.

Perhaps our most poignant memories will be of you sitting near your sweetheart in the front pews in Church. Your voice was always one of wisdom and depth.

We will never forget your forthright and candid nature. You stood passionately for ideals you believed in and were unequivocal with your views.

We believe true mothers are gatekeepers for generations to come. You will be fondly remembered for being a mother with a difference.

We trust that you will rest in the bosom of the Lord.

A GEM IS LOST

I met Prof B Yetunde Oladimeji through her first cousin, Jide Elemide, in 1964. Jide is like her immediate younger brother, so she took me like her younger brother.
Her husband, Dr Muyiwa Oladimeji, was a revered senior of mine in Government College, Ibadan. This made our relationship stronger.

I can never forget the two weeks I spent with her in Cardiff, Wales between January and February of 1980. In spite of her busy schedules, she made sure that I enjoyed my stay.

She was a doting mother not only to her biological children but also to anyone who needed her counseling and advice.

Sister Yetunde shall be dearly missed.
Adieu!

Professor (Mrs) Yetunde Oladimeji, we recalled the beautiful and most memorable weekend we spent with you and Muyiwa when we came to attend a ceremony. Despite your busy schedule you spent high quality time with us, cooked the best foods for us and we chatted on many important topics, however we observed your love for God with you quoting many Bible verses to illustrate your points which were very impressive, sincere and Godly. As you have gone to a better place than this sinful earth, we wish you eternal rest and peaceful beginning there. Rest in perfect peace our dear sister.

I met Mama for the first time 2 years ago during a ward round. Immediately apparent to me was her enthusiasm towards her work and the commanding air of confidence around her. Despite her age and health challenges she made it a point of duty to be around for clinical and departmental meetings as often as she could make it.
Learning of her transition was indeed shocking and definitely a huge loss to us all but we'd always be reminded of her life by the great impact she has made which have outlived her.

TRIBUTE TO AN ICON, A VERY GENEROUS MOTHER (MUMMY IFE) AND GRANDMOTHER.
It is very difficult to write about you in the past tense mummy. Leaving us at the moment is something I find difficult to grab with. No words can express my grief of losing you.The Memories of your face, warm smile, large heart and good deeds bring tears to my eyes every minute of the day. Iyinoluwa still wondering why grandma is staying so long with Lord because I told her that you had gone to be with the Lord and Adesewa is always pointing to your room/you picture and say 'ganma" to ask of you. Love you so dearly mummy. I am completely heartbroken and my hearts bleeds that you are gone forever, it’s so hard to face reality but my consolation is in the assurance that we shall see on the resurrection morning where we meet to part no more. Goodnight mummy!!!

The best prof in the world, my supervisor, my adviser-A mother with a good heart towards everyone. Your good works lives on.May your gentle soul rest in peace.

This is so hard to type. Fighting the tears and daily trying to live in the denial that you are resting with God.

Big Grandma, an epitome of love and excellence... Every journey that begins definitely has an end, hence the impact made in the course of the journey is one series of special events we do not take likely.

A gift to this world, an Academic General, God's General... We are grateful to God for being here with us and for blessing us with your life on earth.

Keep resting in the Bossom of God.

Adieu Adieu till we meet again!

I did not have the privilege of meeting Mama personally but her value system and her impressive gravitas could be seen in one of her children that inspires me a lot. Seyi Gbobaniyi's principles and practices are, and could only have been, the undeniable derivatives of a dutiful and loving Mother.

Mama, I am a believer in resurrection of the dead by Our Lord Jesus Christ and I cannot wait to meet you personally in the new world.

Until then, please continue to sleep in the Lord.

My dearest sister, my friend, my confidant, gist partner, adviser and counsellor. I can't believe that the time has come for me to write this. I was hoping and praying for more years but the Lord says it's time.
You have been a loving and caring sister to me and all your siblings. Time and space will not allow me to say all I should say because that will telling the story of almost 60years.
I just want to thank God for the privilege he gave me to be your sister.
I miss you like kilode. You are forever in my heart.

Sister Yetunde’s passing was a painful loss to Mopelola and I. She was a solid support for uncle and the entire family. We watched her with admiration from a distance. We were on the zoom call for her 70th and had wished her many more years of life, love and leadership. As It has pleased God to call her home, we take solace in the beauty of her life and the legacies she is leaving behind. For this, we shall forever be grateful to God for allowing us come inside Prof’s orbit. Sister Yetunde is not dead: she lives on in all of the lives she has touched.

A painful loss and a shock to hear of the passing of such a wonderful and sweet soul. It was always such a wonderful experience visiting my Uncles Femi and Muyiwa especially knowing I would also share the good company of their wives who we all hold in such high esteem. Aunt Yetunde will be sorely missed. A wonderful lady with a kind heart. Thoughts and prayers to Uncle Muyiwa and the family. We can take some comfort from the fond memories and positive experience we all have of Mrs, Prof. Oladimeji. Good bless her soul and may she Rest In Peace.

The sudden departure of Prof Mrs Yetunde Oladimeji was received with great shock. She left an indelible record on the sand of time with her amiable character, her loving and gentle smiles. She was committed and devoted to Christian services and to mankind. These will continue to echo in our memory. May she continue to sleep in the bossom of our Lord till we meet to part no more

LETTER OF CONDOLENCE

NIGERIAN PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION AND NIGERIAN PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION OF CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGISTS, OSUN STATE CHAPTER.

The Osun State Chapter of the Nigerian Psychological Association and Nigerian Association of Clinical Psychologists commiserate with the family of Oladimeji on the demise of our amiable and inestimable Prof. (Mrs.) Benedicta Yetunde Oladimeji. An erudite scholar, a teacher of teachers, a mentor and a pacesetter in the field of Nigerian Psychology.

Prof. (Mrs.) B.Y. Oladimeji passing to glory shakes our hearts, her exit was unexpected and so shocking. It came at the peak when we needs Mama more. Mama's efforts in the National always remain because she saw and took the association at large to the height it deserves. Her presence in conferences and colloquium encourages and gear up the mind of her mentees to strife and do more because she is an embodiment of humility and grace personified. Aside having a clear picture for both  Nigerian Psychological Association and Nigerian Association Clinical Psychologists, she created tools, machineries to make it work and also remain relevant till today. 

Words are not enough to describe this enigma because it is beyond us. Constantly we continue to shed tears because of the irreplaceable loss.


Uncountable are the product of mama both at the local and international levels... postgraduates and all....Mama was a mentor of mentors who sees this task as a role and she played it till her passing on...


Osun State Chapter of the Nigerian Psychological Association connect with the entire family of Nigerian Psychological Association and the various sub domains of Psychology all over  Nigeria and in disapora to grief the demise. We pray that Almighty God gives us the fortitude to bear the irreplaceable loss and uphold Mama's entire family.


Till we meet to part no more


Adieu Mama Benedicta Yetunde Oladimeji.
