ForeverMissed
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Victoria Ajayi-Daniels, 74 years old, born on August 23, 1946, and passed away on April 2, 2021. A Darling Sister, Precious Mother, Super Aunt, Special Grandmother, Bosom Friend, Favourite Teacher, Incorrigible Mentor and Loved One; you will forever be in our hearts.

Madam Victoria Yemi Ajayi-Daniels was born to the Late Pa Joseph and Madam Esther Arebame of Emuhi and Ujoellen respectively in Ekpoma LGA of Edo State ( Formerly Known as Bendel State of old western region). She was the youngest of two sisters, and grew up with a huge number of first cousins among whom today are bankers, senior custom officers, military personnels, business moguls, teachers, traders, clergy men and women. 

She started her early years in Ujoellen primary school and went on to other schools around Nigeria where she bagged a number of scholastic degrees among which are two Masters qualifications from some of Nigeria prestigious universities to mention a few. Victoria was definitely a fan of the books her favourite question to the Grandchildren is “Hope you are reading your books?”

We fondly called her “Iya Olope” (a Yoruba word... someone help to interpret ) our comic way of saying special Mama... especially after a long argument and I can still hear her chuckle or break out in a laugh and there goes the argument. 
She loved life and people as well a number of people had a special love for her too. 

We struggled to share her with the world and a number of people; as mostly because of the way she loved, as children we almost felt we have to compete for love too. 

Mum, thanks for being you, we hoped we had more time with you to tap wisdom and grace but God knows best. Your legacy and teachings will live on, in and through us. And we can only pray that in all,  we do you proud.  

I love you more than words allow me to express. And i pray you are in the coolest part of the banisters of heaven. You are the best.  Good Night Mum. (Son, Dele Nimsi)

Sweet Mummy, I would ask you why you left us this early but I know I will not get a response. God knows best. Your demise was devastating. I still have no words to describe how i felt the night of your passing and each time, It dawns on me we will never see again. I don't know how to tell Michelle, David and Sophia that their yellow granma (as they always call you) is no more. It really hurts so bad. Our consolation is that you are resting in peace with your creator mummy. We love you always.
