Olakunrin’s family mourns matriarch

The family of Africa’s first female Chartered Accountant, Chief (Dr.) Mrs. Olutoyin Olusola Olakunri (FCA, FNIM, OFR), has officially announced her passing.

In a release issued on behalf of the family by daughter of the deceased, Mrs. Susan Aronke Omame, they said that her passage would leave a big vacuum in the profession not only in Nigeria, but in the continent, at large.

In a terse statement signed by Mrs. Omame, the family said,” It is with a deep sense of loss and profound gratitude to God that we announce the passing of our wife, sister, mother and grandmother, Chief (Dr.) Mrs. Olutoyin Olusola Olakunri (FCA, FNIM, OFR), on Sunday June 3, 2018.

“Chief (Dr.) Mrs. Olakunri was a mother to many, full of warmth and wit. Amongst her several virtues, she was an encourager, confidante and counsellor. She enriched the lives of family, friends and associates and will be sorely missed.

“Apart from being the first female Chartered Accountant in Africa, Chief (Dr.) Mrs. Olakunri recorded many firsts in her professional career. She was an inspiration to many women in particular.

“Our pain is raw, but we thank God for our mother’s purposeful life and for the many legacies she left behind.

“She is survived by Elder Simeon Moronfolu Olakunri (SAN), seven children and fourteen grandchildren.”

The family promised to make known to the public the funeral arrangements of the deceased.
