In Memory of
Mrs. Stella Iyabo Amedu
-

Mrs Stella Iyabo Amedu (NEE ADEGOKE), fondly called AUNTY IYABO by all, traversed this planet earth from February 14th,1968 to February 24th, 2022.

To the Glory of God, she epitomized the rare virtuous qualities of a virtuous woman, in action and in deed.  She was a woman who kept the home front running amidst the perverse and wicked generation of today. 

She was parented by late JACOB BABATUNDE ADEGOKE from the Royal Family of Aremu-Quarters in Ojo-Ajowa, Ondo State and late CHRISTIANAH AINOGO ADEGOKE (NEE JAGUN) of the Eshinogu Ruling House of Igarra, in Akoko- Edo, Edo State.

As a child, Iyabo grew up under the care and tutelage of her parents, who were medical practitioners.  Iyabo, therefore, by providence, enjoyed the care, love, and privileges of her literate parents, who ensured that she went to school. Education was, therefore, not just the exclusive preserve of the MALE CHILDREN of the family but for all.  Iyabo attended all the regular schools as a growing GIRL-CHILD with her male siblings unhindered (Primary/Secondary/Tertiary Education, etc).  

Her journey of life into full adult accountability years commenced when she attended a Catering/Home Economics School in Benin City, Edo State, from where she obtained a Diploma certificate in Hotel/Catering Management.  This foundational background was soon to lunch her into the role of a caregiver, to her immediate family, extended family, and the public in general. Iyabo, secured her first job in one of the earliest manufacturing conglomerates (OFIL INDUSTRIES LTD) located in Okpe, Akoko-Edo, a neighborhood town of Igarra, the H. Q's of Akoko-Edo Local Govt Area, in Edo State.

As providence had it, Iyabo also met her husband (Mr Sunny Amedu), a young promising graduate, who was then the Personnel Manager of the company.  Their relationship later blossomed and culminated into a wedlock. By the grace of God, the marriage is blessed with three children (Michael, Michelle, and Emetomo).  All three lived with their late mother in Houston, Texas, before her death.

A year into her first employment, Iyabo decided to further her education at the Federal Polyechnic, Idah, Kogi State. Here in school, Iyabo changed her catering career to study marketing.  This newfound love soon became a passion in her life upon graduation.  When destiny beckoned on her to relocate to Lagos, she was already fully equipped with the needed skills as an astute professional marketer. She did a marketing job with such an ease that her hands were everywhere in the city of Lagos, doing what she was cut out for.

As a woman, when marriage came calling, Iyabo combined the challenges of family responsibilities with her chosen career with utmost ease stemming from the background of a Home Economics Manager.   Iyabo continued her knowledge drive again into the Lagos State University.  She never let go, the opportunity thrown up through the weekend and distant learning programs of the university. Iyabo later on in life, relocated to Houston, U.S.A. to seek for greener pastures, where she lived until her exit to the great beyond.

Before relocating to the United States of America, though an Anglican by birth, she sought more spiritual exploits at the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).  She became a dedicated worker in all the parishes where she lived.  Her last parish in Nigeria was EVERYDAY WITH JESUS, in Badore, Ajah, Lagos.  As a worker in the household of God, she was very concerned with her spiritual life.  She was a soul winner who won souls for Christ.  Mother Iyabo, as she was fondly called by her siblings, loved her family with passion.  She was ever prepared to listen, advise, and help unconditionally.

She was a woman who knew how to abase and abound in all things.  Some of us called her PORTFOLIO MANAGER because of her knack to proffering solutions on the spur on critical issues. Aunty Iyabo was naturally endowed with knowledge, wisdom, and very unassuming.

In marriage, she personifies love.  The love for her husband was unconditional.  The love for the husband was likened to the word of God encapsulated in Ephesians 5v33 and 1Peter 3v1………Wives respect your husbands.  She loved the husband with the fear of the Lord and thus gave everything within her ability, to make the marriage work.

Rest on our dear Aunty Iyabo.

Rest on our own mother, Iyabo.

You are already missed by all, but we take solace, in the word of God that says, sooner than later, we shall all meet to part no more, when the current pain/sorrow of your sudden exit, shall be no more.  May your soul rest in peace with the Lord Jesus.

ADIEU!

ADIEU!!

ADIEU!!!

Dear Aunty Iyabo,

You will always be remebered for your motherly love and care towards us all. Particulary, as a young girl, you taught me how to spell words well. Your death is still a big shock to me. I pray that God grants you eternal rest in the bosom of our lord Jesus Christ.

I love you forever

Words cannot express the depth of pain and Love.You are surely now an angel up above. You were not only our sister-in-law,
but also our friend. We missed you daily. We never knew how much we loved you, until you were gone. We remembered our last calls on your birthday, the memory will remain with us for life, we laughed and crack some jokes. You were so full of life. But Jehovah knows why He decided to take you before the evil days. You will forever be remembered and celebrated. We love you dearly Mrs. Stella Iyabo Amedu, Nee Adegoke. May your soul rest on in Peace.

From your in laws.
