OLAWANLE TITILAYO OJEWALE (May 26, 1959 – March 17, 2014)


Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day-2 Cor. 4

Olawanle Titilayo Suulola Ojewale (Née Akinbode) was born on Tuesday, May 26, 1959, to Mr. Benjamin Oreoluwa Akinbode and Mrs. Esther Aduke Akinbode (Née Solanke). She was the second of five children. For her elementary education, Olawanle attended Ebenezer African Church School, Oke-Ado Ibadan, between January 1965 and December 1970. Thereafter, for her secondary/high school, she gained admission to St. Anne's School Molete, Ibadan, in January 1971.

Fairly quiet but studious, Olawanle took part in sporting activities while in school. She especially excelled in sprinting activities. Olawanle finished her high school education (West African School Certificate) in Grade 1 Division in June 1975. She was in The Polytechnic, Sango Ibadan, for one year. She left the Polytechnic for one of the foremost Universities in Nigeria, the University of Ife Ile-Ife (Unife) in October 1976, to study Economics. As a spinster at the Cathedral Church of St. James Oke-Bola, Ibadan, Wanle was a Sunday School (children's church) teacher.

Olawanle secured employment at the Co-operative Bank, Ibadan, Nigeria, late in 1981. She worked in the bank secretary’s department and the personnel department at the headquarters, Ibadan, before she was transferred to Yaba office, a Lagos regional office, after she got married in April 1986. She got married to Michael in April 5, 1986, and the marriage was blessed with two partners who were devoted to each other’s growth and progress in all areas of life. Newly married in 1986, Olawanle served in the Ushering Ministry of New Estate Baptist Church, Surulere, Lagos. There also, she was baptized by immersion.

Having passed all exams and met all professional requirements, Olawanle became an associate member of the London Institute of Bankers in December 1986. But, becoming a certified banker was just one of her professional goals. She, again, passed all required exams and met all conditions necessary to become a public certified chattered accountant. Olawanle became an associate member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN; Adm. # 7311) in 1993

Olawanle and her husband relocated to the US in September 1996. She secured an employment with the Chase Bank in January 1997. She also worked during tax seasons with the H & R Block until her primary employer, the Chase Bank, had a new directive that made such engagement a conflict of interest for their employees. Olawanle became a naturalized US citizen in June 2003. She served and worshipped in Brooklyn Baptist Church. Olawanle was a generous and devoted person. She will be missed by all who knew her at home and abroad, at work, in the church or in the neighborhood.
