Deaconess Oluyemisi Idowu
No longer by our side, but always in our hearts!
Late Deaconess Oluyemisi Idowu Okunniyi (nee Adekoya) was a native of Abigi, Ijebu Waterside, in Ogun State of Nigeria. She was married to Late Chief Olayinka Alade Okunniyi. She was the precious mother of Yeside, Olajumoke, Babajide and Olaoluwa; a grandmother, sister, auntie and friend to many.
She loved everyone with all their faults, and gave her all, every time. She supported everyone, whether a stranger or well known. She was blessed not only with her biological children, but also several adopted/spiritual children. She was a lifelong member of the Foursquare Gospel Church in Nigeria.
"Her life was a blessing,
Her memory a treasure....
She is loved beyond words
And missed beyond measure" (Renee Wood).
