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,
Please note our next steps are to wait until the pandemic is over so we can give our mother a befitting memorial in London and a burial in Nigeria as per her wishes.
We have created a funding page where you can donate to the family or to a foundation we are setting up in her name to continue her work helping young people in Nigeria access higher education.
