Gentle and reserved can not begin to describe this extremely humane woman, as tears and wailings couldn’t be held back penultimate Friday, July 6, 2018, in Ibadan, Oyo State capital, when the remains of Deaconess (Mrs.) Elizabeth Taiwo Olufunke Idowu (nee Somefun) were committed to mother earth at her residence in Abatiti, Olode, Ibadan. Born on December 5, 1957 in Lagos, but hailed from Abeokuta, Ogun State, she was a twin daughter of Mr. Titus Sunday Ola and Mrs. Comfort Alaba Somefun, both of blessed memories, and after her primary and secondary education, she worked meritoriously and diligently in many branches across the nation with the First Bank of Nigeria Plc, and retired meritoriously in 1998, having put in over 20 years of commendable service. Deaconess Idowu, in her life time, was a committed, pious and devoted Christian of The Apostolic Church denomination, Olode District, Ibadan, Oyo State, where she participated religiously, actively and whole heartedly in all church activities with dexterity, virtues that earned her the prestigious title of a Deaconess of the church many years ago. She was an embodiment of a virtuous woman, a loving mother, devoted and dutiful wife to her husband, and related well with all her biological family members, her husband’s family members, church members and neighbours within her residential environs. She will surely be sorely missed by everyone who came in contact with her while alive, going by the catalogue of tributes and commendations that trooped in since she passed on peacefully on the night of Friday June 15, 2018 in her sleep, due to complications arising from an abdominal surgery. She was aged 60 and survived by her darling husband, Elder Femi Idowu, from Ilesa, Osun State, four lovely children, Olumide Idowu, Mrs. Omolola Owoeye (nee Idowu,) Olawale Idowu and Damilare Idowu, a son-in-law, Yomi Owoeye, a grandson, little Segun Owoeye, a younger brother, Opeoluwa Idowu Somefun, many relations, in-laws and family friends, who all came in their numbers to give her a befitting burial and Christian rites of passage. Until her untimely death, upon retirement from First Bank, she was into private business and a retail outlet. May her gentle, caring and loving soul Rest in Everlasting Perfect Peace. Amen.
