Pastor’s wife dies during service, for burial tomorrow
An earlier service of songs was yesterday evening held in her honour at Daughter of Abraham Hall, opposite Setraco headquarters, Mabushi Express, Abuja. According to the church, “the 29-year-old mother of one was deeply and intensely lost in worship, lifted up her hands and was called to a higher place of praise and worship when she suddenly slumped and died during service last week.”
In a tribute, the church said: “The StandPoint Church together with the families of the Iyawe’s and Obaseki’s, soberly announce to the public the passing of Mrs. Omamen Iyawe, a profoundly treasured mother, wife, daughter, sister and friend. It was a glorious exit. As Oma, deeply and intensely lost in worship, lifted up her hands, she was called to a higher place of praise and worship.
“Oma was a beautiful soul, an admirable shining example, and a source of inspiration to many people in and outside The StandPoint Church. Oma will surely and terribly be missed by many. We cry and we grieve, but we also rejoice in this glorious translation because we know that Omamen Iyawe is not in our past, but alive in our future.”
Her bereaved husband, who was married to her for two years before her death also took to social media to mourn her.
