Before she was 10, she was making meals for her very large family of nine children and their friends who often stayed over at her family home. Though Ifeyinwa’s mother had nine children, Ifeyinwa charged herself with the responsibility of taking care of the home at a very early age.

Always with joy in her heart and a smile on her face, she would see to it that everyone was happy and at peace. Ifeyinwa loved to serve wherever she was and she served selflessly. Ifeyinwa was never idle, she was not afraid to try her hands on something new and was a friend to all. Ifeyinwa learnt her ethics, strong family values, her model for the lifelong task of parenting and intentional living from her parents. She graduated from Ambrose Alli University, Nigeria with a Bachelor’s in French Studies. As a goal getter, she excelled in her studies understanding that she could attain anything she wants in life if she sets her mind to it.

Ify, as fondly called by everyone, met the love of her life Christian Asia who she fondly referred to as her heartbeat in 2007 and they got married in 2008. They are blessed with three lovely children: Aaron, Jason, and Khloe. She was an amazing wife and mother. An organized home maker and a great cook, her home is surrounded by a peaceful aura that makes everyone feel welcome and loved. She loved to cook and was constantly trying out new and interesting recipes. She had a beautiful voice and loved singing. She was an active member of the good women fellowship of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Mount Zion Parish, Regina, where she and her family worship. Ifeyinwa was a mother, a true friend to all, kindhearted, always ready to lend a helping hand and radiating joy and life everywhere she goes.

Ifeyinwa worked at Global Energy Ltd and Wartsila, both based in Lagos, Nigeria. She relocated to Regina, Canada in 2017, and worked in Kids first Regina, Scotiabank, Regina Open Door Society and Sim Electric. Ifeyinwa was very athletic.

Ifeyinwa was the best at pole vault and she was an amazing female soccer player. She was the lead traditional dancer at social events. Ifeyinwa’s laughter was rich, deep and very infectious. She was always happy.

Ifeyinwa impacted so many lives. Being highly coordinated, she demonstrated great leadership and emotional intelligence skills while helping immigrants to settle in Canada, as part of job duties at the Regina Open Door Society.

I still cannot believe you are gone, I refuse to come to terms with this great lost.

Rest In Peace Ife.

I still can’t believe the news. I got to know you through your older sister, ChiChi. You were like her best friend and PA. Every other sentence was about “my sister, Ifeyinwa”.

I remember the last time I saw you was in London and you had come to either collect something Chichi sent to you through me or you had come to deliver an item for her. I can’t quite remember but I remembered you were heavily pregnant but still made the trip to come through for her.
You were very respectful and loved your family greatly.

May your beautiful soul rest in the lord’s bosom and may the Almighty God grant your entire family and loved ones the fortitude to bear this huge loss.

I am dumbfounded. How could this be? I brushed over the link notification without having a thorough review of what was contained in the link. I thought it was for one of you parents.

I have known your husband for some years now and he speaks very highly of you.

Rest in peace Ify, God knows why he chose for you to leave now.

Adieu

Nwennem as I fondly call you. It's hard and sad to believe you are no longer with us in person.

You were a very kind soul, caring, humble, lively, groovy and lovely to be with. You were a true believer of possibility, you were always there and willing to help especially with the kids.

We love and miss you, but God loves you more. May He rest your beautiful soul in a safe and better place.

We path to meet, until we meet again,
Goodnight Nwennem.

Ify, beautiful Ify, I still wonder if it's the same one I know that everyone is saying "sorry for your loss". I really am short of words. I see your smiles and I want to say I know you are on the other better side, but honestly, I wish it wasn't this early. But who are we to ask why when those are alive don't even know why they are. Rest my lovely sister. The void you left is deep. Wherever you are watch over these lovelies you have left behind, even if it's never done, you like the pacesetter that you are, start it ok. God bless you, heavens rejoice as they have gained another blessed one. You are home now girl, you are home.

Omalicha Ify so this is it. We were planning to visit each other, then covid struck. I really missed that opportunity to know you better, but from the little interactions we had, you were a beautiful soul.
Heaven has gained another angel. Rest in God’s arms. You will be greatly missed!

How can we explain the kindness in your heart, the contagious of your joy or the depth of your love in short few words.

Ify was not only beautiful on the outside, she was a beautiful soul. She turned our brothers house into a home for everyone and we looked forward to visiting. She took advantage of short holidays to gather the entire family together so we could all spend quality time together enjoying her delicious meals and enjoying family time... Ify, for every memory that we will share here, there are hundreds that will come flooding back every time we think about you.
She was always bright , creative, loved cooking and so full of life . She was kind in her words, never with meaness or malice and always generous with her grace.
She was a fantastic mother .

Words cannot describe how you will be missed.

Ify... The chosen one by our brother.
The mother of his children
Our brother chose you to be our sister and we feel so blessed to have had you.

Rest on dear sister till we meet on resurrection morning

God will wipe away every tear from their eyes,
and death shall be no more,
neither shall there be mourning, nor crying,
nor pain anymore,
for the former things have passed away. – Revelation 21:4

I mourn your death and pray that the almighty will give your family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss. May your soul and the souls of all the faithful departed rest in peace
Ify.
