BIOGRAPHY OF LATE MRS. COMFORT OMOKHALE OMOMOH ODIOR (NEE ILEGAH) (1939- JULY 8TH, 2023)
Comfort Omokhale Omomoh Odior, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, in-law, cousin, and friend, passed on to glory on July 8th, 2023. She was born into a traditional farming family in Ogbona, Nigeria, in 1937, to late Mr. Ilega Robinson Ovini and late Madam Abiba Ovini (Nee Agbayekha) of the Ilega family of Ogbona, Etsako Central L.G.A, Edo State.
Omokhale, or Omomoh, as she was fondly called, was the fifth child and second daughter of a 13-member family, and she is an identical twin. Comfort spent her childhood in Ogbona with her aunt, the late Madam Eghomheka Iyawo Okozi (Nee Ovini), the father’s sister. As a young girl who was very hard-working at domestic and farm work, her mother and aunt were always fighting over her possessions.
Comfort got married to late George Kadiri Odior in the early 1960s. She spent her early years of marriage in Lagos State with her husband. In 1976, Comfort relocated back to Ogbona with her husband after the death of her father-in-law, late Mr. Patrick Odior Okhoghiemhe, and then she worked as a trader and a farmer.
Comfort was hilarious, full of life, and a woman of peace who genuinely cared about the welfare of others. She will be remembered for her unwavering commitment to her family, relatives, and friends. Her peaceful nature, generosity, and kindness touched the lives of many, and she will be missed more than words can express.
She is survived by her loving children and step children, Maria Ogah, Ernest Simeon Odior, Johnson Odior, Beatrice Agbonoga and Kenneth Odior, Peter Odior, Anthony Odior, Patience Okozi and Victoria Awolowo. She is also survived by her twin sister, Mrs. Odior Esuana, and other sisters, brothers, and many extended family members.
