Segun James

The death has occurred of Mrs. Violet Oluremilekun Phillips-George, mother of Chief Olabode George, the southwest leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

She passed on at the age of 91 years.

A devoted Christian, Mrs. Phillips-George who trained as a certified nurse in the 1930’s, spent several decades at the Lagos Island Maternity Hospital where she distinguished herself as a professional with selfless focus and instinctive humanitarian mission.

After her retirement from the Lagos Maternity Hospital, she devoted the rest of her life to the service of the Lord at the Olowogbowo Methodist Church in Chapel Street. She was a leading member of Ladies Friendly Society, the Egbe Ife Group and the Helpers Union. Mrs. Phillips-George was a humanitarian and community builder.

She was industrious and hardworking, ultimately latched to the principle that the good life must be about service to fellow man and the sincere devotion to God.
She was the head of the Phillips- Ijotun family of Abeokuta and the Aganga Williams family of Idumota Lagos.

Until her peaceful transition, she lived a fulfilled life and dedicated the rest of her existence to the tenets of Christ.

She is survived by Alhaja Enitan Majolagbe, Chief Olabode Ibiyinka
