Obituary

Lady Evang/Apostolic Mother Dorcas Olusade Olugbemi JP (née Adekoya), born on January 3, 1964, to the esteemed family of late Chief James Adenuga Adekoya and late Mrs. Alaba Olufunke Adekoya in Ijebu East, Ogun State, has concluded her earthly journey on February 12, 2024. A woman of profound faith and resilience, Dorcas charted a path of academic and professional excellence, from her early education in Ibadan to her graduation from the University of Ibadan with a B.Sc in Psychology. Her life was a testament to her dedication to her career and spiritual calling, which saw her establish and nurture religious communities alongside her beloved husband, Pastor (Engr) Gabriel Oludare Olugbemi.

Following their marriage in 1990, Dorcas embraced entrepreneurship and her calling in the ministry with unmatched zeal. In Benin City, she founded Peju Nigeria Enterprises and was instrumental in establishing the Christ Apostolic Church, Redemption Center. Her unwavering commitment to evangelism led her to undertake missionary journeys, notably to Jara village in Borno State, leaving an indelible mark on many lives through her ministry and acts of kindness.

Relocating to Lagos in 1999, Dorcas continued to impact the community through DNL Communications Ltd, and her involvement in the Cherubim and Seraphim Unification Church, "The Lord is Good". Her dedication to service was recognized with numerous ordinations, culminating in her being named an Apostolic Mother in late 2023. Beyond her religious commitments, she actively participated in cultural and social groups, influencing many through her leadership and compassion.

Her final moments came after a brief illness, departing peacefully on a Monday night, leaving behind a legacy of faith, love, and community service. Her life's journey from a cherished daughter and dedicated student to a revered religious leader and community pillar was marked by her passion for the gospel and service to humanity. As we mourn her loss, we celebrate a well-lived life, embodying grace, strength, and unwavering faith. May Lady Evang/Apostolic Mother Dorcas Olusade Olugbemi JP rest in eternal peace, leaving behind memories that will forever inspire and uplift.

A TRIBUTE TO ‘SADE

A gentle soul, a loving heart, forever missed, never forgotten. You brought light and warmth to all who knew you. Your kindness, grace, and strength were a source of inspiration to us all.

Your love for life, family, and friends was boundless. You touched our lives in ways that words cannot fully express. Though you may no longer be with us in person, your spirit lives on in the memories we hold dear.

May we find solace in the love you shared, the laughter you brought, and the beauty you added to our lives.
As we mourn your passing, we also celebrate the gift of having known you

So glad our paths crossed in your lifetime and I can candidly attest to your simplicity, tenacity and fortitude too, in the face of myriad of challenges that would have dampened the spirit of many; but your love for Christ and His teachings saw you through them all.

You were a devoted and loving wife to Dare, and you shared his dreams and aspirations unconditionally. You also cared for his inner circle of friends like me & my wife when we visited your home.

One of your evangelical experiences in Northern Nigeria still rings a bell; when you told me how you once had to drink dirty water from the same water-hole where cows flocked for water: To this day, that story reinforced my faith to care for others and to bring others to the knowledge of Christ.

Rest in peace, dear ‘Sade. You will always hold a special place in our hearts."

Factually, the rising and setting of the sun depict the inevitable journey of humans on earth from birth to death. Mummy was a woman who practically demonstrated the spirit of selflessness, love and affection for the growth and development of churches, most especially Christ Apostolic Church, Redemption District. The unforgettable marks you left will continue to speak in life, that you truly was a great Woman of God. You lived a life of simplicity, too loaded to be forgotten so easily. I will always remember how you used to call me “My Deaconess, My Women Leader.” Nevertheless, I hate to say goodbye because you left when you would have felt our presence the most, but we cannot question God. Goodbye Mummy, rest in peace till we meet again.

TRIBUTE TO APOSTOLIC MOTHER DORCAS OLUSADE OLUGBEMI JP

Late Apostolic mother Dorcas Olusade Olugbemi was a rare gem, a staunch and devoted daughter of the most high, she was an active member of the visioners' band of the church.

Mummy Olugbemi loved and revered God and it showed in her attitude, as she dealt with people and situations with utmost candour.

She was a vessel unto honour who did not shy away from the works of God, a well schooled sunday school teacher, an evangelist who was well versed in the word she taught effortlessly and made the scriptures easy to understand. Mummy Olugbemi was a virtuous woman, an exemplary Christian, with the most admirable temperament. Ever smiling, she was never one to frown or get angry. We take solace in the word that says "the Lord takes the righteous away to spared from evil...." Isaiah 57:1-2.

We pray for you, her family, that God will comfort you, God will keep you, give you beauty for ashes, give you all the fortitude to bear this great loss and give you peace in Jesus name, Amen.

Adieu our dear dear mother, Apostolic Mother Olusade Olugbemi JP(AKA MUMMY RUTH), you will be greatly missed we love you but God loves you more, till we meet to part no more, rest on in the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ.

SHALOM!

It's so sad that on your birthday, you won't be there to be celebrated.
It saddens my heart to write this and It is so disheartening that you only remain in our memories,
Your voice and laughter can't be heard and you hand-made soup can't be eaten anymore, all heart kept, without a choice.
I miss you so much and my heart heavy but I am happy knowing that you are at peace.
Your legacy shall be kept and it would be passed on BIG MUMMY.


Oluwaferanmi remember you always.

Growing in you warm embrace is a gift I cherish a lot and it remains in my heart.
Our fights and quarrels, though they would test us, were signs of affection that I won't forget.
You always wanted to make it known you were older and being your younger sister, I felt so blessed.
Having you raising me, correcting me and being my mother is so precious.
I wish you could stay a bit longer but I believe you're in a better place filled with peace.
You would forever remain in my heart Aunty mi.

Olajumoke loves you.

I can't put into words, how I feel
A mother to all and my best advisor
Your endless prayers and your kind soul
More than a protection to us as a whole
For all the insults and corrections,
We knew it was for our own good
All the good times we spent together and all your meals
Will forever be in our hearts
Your advice and care led us to where we are
You're more than an aunt and a mum, you're my best friend
I still find it hard to believe you're gone
But I pray your humble soul abide in the arms of the angels, and rest in perfect peace.
I love you big mummy
From your dearest Ireoluwa

Sade ore mi. It's hard to believe you're no longer here, your sudden death was really painful and shocking. I thought we will grow old together, who are we to question God.
I remember many times when you travelled from lbadan to ljebu-ode to spent the weekend with me and we enjoyed being together.
Whenever Sade came to London she would prefer to stay at my house. We would talk all night long about the good old times.
Sade you have always been a kind and thoughful friend. I will miss you ore mi, and you will never be forgotten.
May your soul continue to rest in perfect peace

In 1987, on a fateful day in Ibadan, I first laid eyes on Sade, standing on the balcony of her father's house. This moment marked the beginning of a divine chapter in my life. Despite the warnings about her father's strictness, my heart was drawn to her innate beauty, humility, and the virtuous family she came from. Our relationship blossomed from that point, leading to our marriage in 1990—a union that would be blessed with love, mutual respect, and unwavering partnership.

Sade embodied the essence of a virtuous woman, demonstrating profound care, compassion, and an unparalleled ability to juggle the demands of family life with grace. Her commitment to our home was evident in every meal prepared, every challenge navigated, and every sacrifice made. Her support and encouragement were my stronghold, reflecting the depth of her love and the strength of her character. She not only managed to keep our family united but also endeared herself to my family and friends with her respect, humility, and the warmth of her presence.

Adopting my hometown as her own, Sade seamlessly integrated into the community, earning admiration and respect as an "Obinrin Ile" (good housewife) in the Otuoko family. Her extraordinary care for my parents in their twilight years and her unwavering participation in family matters left an indelible mark on our hearts. Sade's departure has left a void that cannot be filled, a testament to the profound impact she had on all who knew her.

As we bid farewell to my beloved wife, Dorcas Amoke Olusade Olugbemi, I take solace in the memories of the love we shared and the life we built together. Her legacy of love, unity, and faith remains a beacon of light for us all. Though she has laid down her earthly burdens to join the saints in triumphant song, her spirit continues to guide and inspire us. Rest in peace, my darling wife, until we meet again and part no more.

In remembrance of my beloved mother, her grace, strength, and warmth profoundly influenced who I have become. She was our family's beacon of love and resilience, illuminating our lives with her presence from my earliest memories. Through her example, she instilled in me the values of hard work, perseverance, and the importance of finding joy in life's simple pleasures. Her wisdom guided me, and her unwavering faith served as my foundation. Mummy was more than a mother; she was a confidante, a champion, and our guiding light, versatile in her understanding and an irreplaceable partner in conversation. Her loss has left a void, but her love and the lessons she taught remain with us.

Though she has departed from this world, the legacy of my dear mother lives on through the memories we cherish and the impact of her teachings. Her spirit continues to comfort and guide us, felt in moments of silence and reflection, as vivid as the sunrise. We are eternally grateful for the love she shared, the sacrifices she made, and the remarkable person she was. As we move forward without her physical presence, we take solace in the enduring essence of her spirit, which remains an integral part of our lives. Rest in peace, beloved Mummy, forever cherished and fondly remembered by all who knew you.
