I got to know Sis Scholastica in PUSH. She was a prayer leader and I remember asking after her the weekend before we were told she passed on because I had not seen her for a while.
I remember her smile, her voice and also her being passionate. Again, I realise the importance of living our lives to honour God daily and live as if it were the last minute on earth. I pray that the Lord will comfort her husband, children and loved ones.
Adieu my Sis until we meet at the feet of Jesus.

Sis Scholastical was such a rare gem!
A firebrand prayer warrior!
I had the privilege of speaking with her directly once or twice.
Wow! We'll miss you but thank God heaven has gained you!
It is well!

Sister Scholastica was a phenomenal woman with a vibrant voice. Though I didn’t get to meet her personally, but her voice was always distinct. She was always on fire for God when leading on the push prayer line…. May your sweet soul Rest In Peace ☮️ Amen

Dear Sr Scholastica, i didn't get to meet you physically but always connected on the PUSH prayer platform. Thank you for the energy you brought to the meetings. Your smile and laughter was infectious. Your commitment to the prayer meetings was encouraging. You are sorely missed, but we are encouraged we will meet again. Rest in Peace dear Sister.

I remember how you prayed with great zeal and passion during the PUSH prayer Movement sessions. You were very active on those prayer calls whether you were leading a prayer or not and when it's time to laugh you do so very well. You will be missed sister Scholastica, may your beautiful soul rest in perfect peace. Amen

Ore mi......Babe; my fabulous fashionista friend and sister. I am thankful to God for our 10years of friendship and sisterhood. You were such a fighter, never backing down for satan. I will surely miss our hours of gisting . You were a woman of prayer and loved Demola and the girls so much. You were also passionate about serving God and His Kingdom.....Jesus was your everything.

Love you dearly Ore mi and I will see you again on the resurrection morning.

Schola mi Owon, like I always called you. You have always been so close to my heart and your memoriesqill continue to linger on. Since high school, we have been together like sisters; visited each other and cared for each other. You and your family insisted on seeing me and my family, when we visited Edmonton 2yrs ago. I didn't know you wanted to say goodbye. I was so happy about our reunion and was looking forward to more but God had His plan which we knew not. You encouraged me when I was down and always ended our conversations with "Bimbo let's pray". We laughed over how strong you were because nothing could stop you from doing whatever you wanted to do.Yemisi, yomi and myself will miss having phone conferences with you because you were always the talkative among us. We will continue to celebrate you, my darling sister. The Lord will be with your husband and Children. Rest on my sister.

You visited me when I was down after a surgery, all the way from FM to Calgary. You are blessed Schola. What a big loss. May God keep and console those you left behind. God knows best in his infinite mercies.

Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.

My darling Skay,
You will forever remain fresh in my heart…all the good times we shared reflecting on how much we are loved and cherish by our hubbies. How blessed we are and our dreams for tomorrow.
As long as the Lord tarries I will carry these memories along in fulfilling those dreams - all
for God’s glory amen 
Rest on Sunshine and see you then ♥️

Death!Death!!Death!!!,....Death is a debt everyone must pay but to Dumebi,it came as a big shock,am just writing this now cos each time I open this page to write ,I find it extremely difficult to accept this cruel verdict, but then who am I to question the Almighty who gives and ......
Chukwudumebi was and still my niece cos she still lives....
She was practically a baby when my sis(her mum) pick me up to come and live with them at a very young age and since then I and Dumebi were practically inseparable, we were so close and fond of each other to the extent that what I cannot tell or discuss with my sister(her mum) I always see her as a friend I can trust and talk to.
I remember her early years with Lara Day nursery and Primary sch at Ikeja,I usually pick her to and fro the bus stop were her school bus picks and drops her in the morning and afternoon, and she will say ''uncle my legs are aching me pls carry me'' and I will gladly carry her home.
Getting home,will discover that she barely touched her food that was given to her in the morning before leaving for school,and when asked she will say uncle am not hungry, she will prefer to drink cold water which is not good for her health and that is when we always fight cos I won't let her drink it.
Dumebi is not the eating type, so she will always want to bribe me with her own portion of food so I won't tell her mom about her bad habit..''drinking cold water'' but cos of our closeness, I won't tell anybody about it and at the sametime won't let her drink it.
Schola was my 'Padi',my confidant and an ally,and as far as am concerned she can give her life for another.......A GIVER.
Oooh ......Schola I will forever miss you.
Live on my dearest,till we meet to part no more....

My Beautiful Aunty Dumdum as I fondly call you I honestly can’t believe you are gone. You where so selfless and amazing and wouldn’t have imagined anything of this sort happening to you. I just believe you’re in a peaceful place with no pain or troubles anymore and that alone make me happy. I will deeply miss you. I still haven’t had a chance to tell mum cos she will be shattered especially now she’s in a fragile state. I do know she will miss you like crazy and we love you soooo much. Thanks for all you did for us. May your beautiful soul rest easy.

Scholastica Lives on

Beautiful, witty, vivacious, fearless – that was Scholastica. A determined soul, she always went after her dreams. She wasn’t afraid of opposition, and she didn’t bother with naysayers. She had a great sense of humour and a hearty infectious laughter. Scholastica was beautiful, inside and out.

The first of four children, Scholastica was born into a closely-knit family who loved her deeply. She was a loving daughter, and a protective and dependable sibling, always looking out for her family and doing her utmost to ensure the best outcomes for them. Losing her parents were harrowing experiences for her, but she bounced back as she always did despite those difficult situations. She was a compassionate yet emotionally strong person who had a heart of gold and was genuinely interested in other people. 

Scholastica was a firm believer in Jesus Christ and enjoyed praying. Her love for God was evident as she involved Him in all aspects of her life. She desired to make people’s lives better, and one of the ways she did this was through her later-in-life career in counselling, which allowed her to bless others with her gift of caring, listening, and wisdom. She had a degree in Pharmacy from the University of Benin, Nigeria and was working on a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counselling at the Colorado Christian University in the US.

In 1994 as a teenager, Scholastica met her childhood sweetheart and they’ve been together and inseparable ever since. They eventually married and in the years that followed, were blessed with two beautiful daughters. As a wife and mum, Scholastica’s devotion to her family was unparalleled. She loved her husband and daughters immensely, and if you crossed them, you risked being challenged in her unique no-nonsense and say-it-as-it-is manner. Oh, Scholastica was always such a breath of fresh air! 

Gifted with a clever mind, Scholastica approached life passionately, doing what she believed in, working hard and aspiring for great things regardless of health challenges. She was an excellent role model to her children, whom she was very close to. 

Scholastica’s determination and will to live was admirable; she was never one to give up without a fight. Her passing on can only be because God called her home. She lived her life on earth to the fullest and, no doubt, will continue to do so in eternity. 

Live on, our beloved Scholastica Adeyemi (nee Dike).

The last time we spoke was one of the few times I had the privilege of talking to you. It was as if I had known you for years! Your reputation as a child of God precedes you; but God does not care about reputations (right standing with men) - he cares about your heart and soul - and yours was filled with love for God and compassion for His creatures. You have won sis!

Sis Scholastica, you have fought the good fight, you have finished the race, you have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for you the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to you on that Day. May God comfort the entire family at this time in Jesus name. Amen
