The remains of late Evang. Princess Patience Uzezi Ogboh, (Nee Erijo) have been laid to rest in her husband’s compound in Aviara, Isoko South Local Government Area.

The burial rites started with a service of songs and continued at the weekend with a funeral service at Aviara Secondary Commercial School premises, where the officiating priest, Bishop Ben Eghaire, emphasized the need for the living to draw close to God to be able to make heaven.

While stressing that there was no repentance after death but judgement, the Bishop charged Christians to live every passing day of their life as if it was the last because death could come knocking at any time, and everyone should be prepared for the life hereafter.

He expressed delight that the late Evang. Princess Patience Ogboh, popularly called Mummy G. O. of the Forerunner World Evangelical Mission, religiously served God and positively impacted on the society during her life time, urging those she left behind not to mourn like unbelievers but accept the will of God.

Bishop Eghaire emphasized that what mattered most in the life of a Christian was not how long he or she lived, but the positive things one would be remembered for when gone.

He prayed God to forgive the deceased her sins and grant her soul a peaceful and eternal rest.

The body of late Evang. Princess Patience Uzezi Ogboh, who died at the age of 60, was later committed to mother earth after the graveside formalities.

Speaking shortly after the interment and reception of guests, the immediate younger brother of the deceased’s and Chief of Staff to Governor Sheriff Oborevwori, Hon Prince Johnson Erijo, regretted that the mother of two children and three grandchildren died too soon, but thanked God for the virtuous and fulfilled life she lived.

Hon Erijo said Mummy G. O. would be greatly missed for her motherly love and impactful life and prayed God to grant the bereaved families the fortitude to bear the loss.
