ForeverMissed
Dear friends and family,

We are truly grateful and appreciative of your continued love and support, as we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Mrs. Stella Chinurukam Onyemachi Aguocha. She was a loving mother, a blessing to all of her children- the best mother we could have ever asked for. She was a sister, aunt, cousin, friend and colleague. She meant so much to so many people! Her faith in God, her love for her family, friends and community at large knew no bounds. She was as inspiring as she was kind. Her infectious laughter and love for life will live in all of us forever. 

The magnitude of our loss is beyond words. We struggle to understand why God called her home so soon, but we trust that God knows best. We are comforted in the knowledge that our mother is resting peacefully and happily in the arms of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. In our dreams she is dressed immaculately and so full of joy and happiness. She's dancing up a storm in heaven and shining as brightly in Heaven as she did on earth.

We have created this website to honor our mom and to remember her. We will compile as many messages and memories as we can into a booklet that will be distributed during her memorial service in Nigeria and passed on to her family, friends, children and the future grandchildren she longed for so much. 

Please add your pictures, stories, videos and experiences with our mom. Please share what she meant to you and how she impacted your life. She was deeply loved by so many and will never be forgotten. May her soul rest in perfect peace.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we will be holding a small funeral service in London on Saturday, May 8th, 2021, with plans to fully celebrate her life and give her a proper send off in Nigeria, once the pandemic is under control.

Please check back frequently for details regarding the funeral services and virtual wake keeping in London. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions, the funeral service is limited to 30 guests, invite only. However, the virtual wake keeping and funeral will be available to view and stream virtually.

NOTE: All funeral updates and arrangements will be posted on this page. A zoom link will be embedded for the virtual wake keeping and funeral service (see below). 

We are truly grateful to everyone who has reached out and inquired about making donations in honor of our mom. Our mom was very giving of herself, her time and her energy. Your contributions to us or to your favorite charity, in her honor, are very much appreciated.

My Dear Aunty,
It would be selfish of me to say that I wish you were still here with us. Nobody knows what your life would have been like post Covid and what restrictions you might have faced. I believe in my heart God showed you two choices and you took the better route. It’s very hard not being able to talk to you anymore. I just wish you could scream “UGO1BILLION “ one more time or fill my whatsapp messages with daily prayers and new articles you’ve come across. Aunty there’s much more I wanted to say to you. Thank you for being my God mother for the past 20 years and Guiding me in the right direction. Thank you for sticking up for me when I couldn’t do it myself. Please watch over mommy and I. Save a seat for me in heaven next to Papa Joe and Grandma. This is not goodbye but see you in another life time.

My aunty but i called her sister Stella words cannot express the sense of loss hurt i am feeling .
Each time i think of you the tears just don't stop rolling down my face i have cried, lord knows i have still cannot believe you have left us , your family , your colleagues .

We still can't comprehend this huge loss the fact that you have been taken away from us too soon Sister Stella .

Your laughter the love you shared was priceless we had a special bond because our birthdays were only a few days apart so you understood me well , you would tell me like it is even if i didn't want to hear it i miss that in you .

You had a way of making us laugh in the office or during meetings you had a presence no other person had you would dance and let us know its Friday , a classic dance (laughing out loud) you went out of your way to make everyone happy even when we  were upset about something bless you .That we all will truly miss.

Sister Stella a beautiful Soul, a real star, full of life a lady who not only encouraged me to do my job to the best of my ability but also with regards to my personal life you were always there to listen to support me were possible i you had nothing but good words to say that was one of the reasons why i had nothing but love for you .

You were and will continue to shine bright like the shinning star that you are .

Even though you have gone you will always remain in our hearts never forgotten love you always.

Sister Stella a lady that played a unique role in all our lives .

May you Rest on peace xxxxxx Cathy

How does one express the amazing essence and spirit of Stella, her selfless generosity, uncompromising belief in all that is good and her unwavering commitment to family, friends and especially with her work in helping and supporting homeless families is inspirational.

I have known Stella since 2016 when I joined the Council, and I remember my first few weeks as Stella took me under her wings and showed me the ropes and supported me in my early days, and lifted me up when I was down with her smile, her infectious laugh and unique sense of humour, and most importantly her dancing....I miss your dancing in the office.

Stella’s generosity would extend not only through her acts of kindness but with her cooking !! Stella would cook her special Jollof rice and feed the whole office, bringing in fruits, sweets, cakes and was known as the “feeder” of the team. I miss your cooking.

Words, even the very best of words, cannot pay tribute or truly capture the sense of loss that we are all feeling.

The loss is there, tangible and real within everyone…but Stella exemplified life, love, laughter and an irrepressible belief and faith in seeing the best in everything and in everyone.

And so today we honor Stella, by profoundly feeling and expressing our loss, but also by remembering Stella, an amazing person who has played a unique and special role in all of our lives.

We remember Stella as a mother, sister, friend, colleague and much more….we will all miss you Stella xx RIP my friend

"Madam Stella" as I usually call Stella, you were a beautiful soul and a rare gem.
I watched you come into work daily being unapologetically fabulous and being a light shining so bright. You inspired me to "do me" wherever I am and I loved you for it.
Rest on in the Lord, you are dearly missed.

Da, your demise has created a huge deficit. Each passing day I keep having momentarily flash backs of the moments and memories shared.
You always had a right word for any moment. Every moment with you was a means to share experiences, you never left anyone behind, your smile, laughter, prayers, words of encouragement were signatory.

I will always cherish the love and bond we shared.

Rest on Dada Chinuru, rahu nke oma.

MAY YOU ALWAYS LIVE IN GOD'S GLORY AND WALK IN HIS KINGDOM

May you always live in God's Glory and walk in His Kingdom for the resourcefulness and happiness you gave us that no one will ever know. It broke our hearts to lose you but you did not go alone, a part of us went with you, the day God called you home . A million times we would have preferred to have you and a million times we cried. If love could only have saved you, you never would have died. The God of Glory be with you till we meet again in the beautiful shores of His Kingdom.

Mommy

Shared by Kelechi Aguocha on March 3, 2021
Thanks for being my Mother who raised me, my Mommy when I was hurt, and my best-friend with whom I shared everything with. I am unsure of my words because we were always honest with each other when we spoke. We never missed an opportunity to tell each other we loved each other, but we often laughed, and cried within the same conversation. I have accepted the fact you're not physically here but we will continue to have our conversations. I love you and I will keep your memory alive until we meet again by God's Grace.

Save some muffins and tea for me.
