It is with great sadness that we share the passing of our sweet mother Eyitolami Olaolorun. Known fondly as Aunty Tola, Iya Junior and Iya Nurse.
She was a strong, hardworking, inspirational woman. A mother to many. She touched and supported the lives of all the people she made contact with.
She was an excellent paediatric nurse with 40 years of experience. She was caring and compassionate towards all her patients and their families, so much so, that some of them have become part of our extended family.
Our mother meant the world to us having sacrificed her best years raising 4 children on her own. She worked tirelessly to ensure we were loved, nurtured and educated.
The loss of our mother has left us heartbroken. We know that we are not alone in this loss, we share our pain with her siblings, her grandchildren, her extended family, our adopted aunts and uncles, her friends and the many children who she loved dearly.
Rest Easy Mommy,

The Eyitolami Olaolorun Foundation is launching. The aim of the foundation is to provide better access to university education for young people. We are doing this to continue the work of the late Mrs Eyitolami Olaolorun, who was a huge advocate for providing the means to allow young people access a university education. During her lifetime, she paid for multiple tertiary educations and the aim of the foundation is to continue her work.
The foundation will achieve this by funding tuition fees and contributing to maintenance costs of university students across Nigeria.
To mark the second anniversary of her passing, The Eyitolami Olaolorun Foundation will launch its ‘Hardship Fund’ which will provide a sum of 100,000 Naira to 10 university students in the final year of their Nursing degree.
From September 2022, the aim is to fund tuition fees for more students.
For donation strictly to the foundation, please use this funding page.
