On Saturday, the demise of Janet Ademola, the younger sister of Orisabunmi was announced by her nephew, Gbenga Onisola.
Ademola on Friday had spoken to our correspondent about the death of her sister, Orisabunmi.
She had said, “The death of my elder sister, Mrs Folake Aremu, is very painful because of what she stood for in our lives as family members. She was very friendly and caring; she never left her siblings untended. We are pained because she stood in as a good mother for all of us.
“As the last child of the family, she took very good care of me. We were very close and used to each other. She gave her best to ensure that I was well catered for. She was a selfless fellow. She was very humane and she persevered a lot. She would not underrate anyone.”
