All is now set for the final journey of the deceased mother of Barr. George Turnah, Executive Assistant to the Governor of Bayelsa State on Public Affairs and Social Orientation, Deaconess Elizabeth Titi Charles, on Sunday February 28, 2021.
Turnah, who made this known to GbaramatuVoice said that all necessary arrangements had been concluded to give his mother a befitting burial.
The funeral ceremonies will take place at the Igbu Ishi Egba Playground in her hometown, Edeoha, in Ahoada East Local Government Area of Rivers State.
Deaconess Charles passed on July 17, 2020 at the age of 67 at the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital after a protracted illness.
A devoted Christian and member of the Christian Church of God Mission (CCGM), Madam Charles is fondly remembered for her selflessness and industry.
An ardent lover of God and mankind, the Deaconess impacted her community with her faith. She single-handedly built a pastor’s residence and children’s section at the Edeoha branch of her church, CCGM.
She also loved education that she not only became a primary school teacher with the Rivers State Government until her demise, but also founded the Eliben Nursery and Primary School in her community.
She was a woman of many industrious parts. One of her vocations was farming. The seasoned farmer ensured her two children got university education through proceeds from her farm.
May her gentle soul rest in perfect peace.
