Chinyere Jane Ashamole
16th Mar 1961 - 12th Jun 2020
Chinyere Jane (nee Benson Anunibe) Ashamole known to us as ‘Chi’, ‘Chichi’ or Jane was born in Lagos, Nigeria on 16th March 1961. She was the only daughter of her parents and the oldest of 3 siblings. Jane’s passion for cooking led her to train as a caterer. She would bake cakes and delicious food for family and friends. Family would look forward to her Calabari soup recipes. Jane got married to Mr Innocent Chimere (Chims) Ashamole of Okwelle in 1987 and together they had 3 sons of which 1 died years ago. She was a devoted mother who dotted after her sons. Sadly, not only did Jane loose 1 of her 3 sons, she became a widow in 2002. She struggled to make ends meet for her children, while taking care of her sick husband. Jane left Nigeria for London, England in 2004. In London, she worked as a carer looking after elderly people and later children. She became unwell but continued working to support herself and her sons (back home) until she could no longer work. Jane succumbed to her illness on 12th June 2020 at a London hospital. Until her death, she remained a faithful, devout Christian. Please join us, her family and friends to give her a befitting burial and allow her gentle soul to rest in peace. She is survived by her sons Mr. Ugochukwu and Mr. Chinonyerem Ashamole and her 2 brothers Mr. Emeka Anunibe and Mr. Chigozie Anunibe as well as many nephews, nieces, cousins and in-laws.

Aunt Chi, I only came to know you very well in the UK. All the times we met, you filled my heart with words of encouragement and your cheerful laughters were infectious. Indeed you kept the faith and held on to God when you became really sick. I had the opportunity of speaking with you on the phone when you were in the hospital. She sounded very optimistic and filled with hope. After the call I was so happy the her spirit was high as I sent Adamma a message saying I am happy and encouraged with her faith in God. May sound rest in the bosom of the lord.
Words of consolation, "I KNOW WHERE I AM GOING " How many of us know where he/she is going. Chinyere i thank God you have the opportunity to know where you are going. Rest in the bosom of the lord. 😪🙏🙏🙏
Mrs Chinyere Jane Ashamole Nee Benson-Anunibe is my elder sister, her passing away too soon has made me sad and lonely, I really miss her. Things started going bad for us when I became sick with stroke and not long she became ill too and we encouraged eachother because we shared the same predicament, giving our lives to Jesus we realized nothing is impossible with Jesus. We spoke to eachother everyday and realized that it wouldn't profit a man if he wins the whole world but loses his soul at the end... Just as she was dying on her hospital bed due to cancer she was in so much pain and looked fearful, I asked her if she was afraid and then she replied"not at all" because she knew where she was going to even if she died then I asked her where then she said 'paradise' where suffering will no longer exist then I felt so much peace so I told her that we would meet again since I was sure where I was heading after this earth. Then I promised her that as long as I live that I will ensure all her dreams especially the once concerning her sons will be granted....... She passed away couple of days later. I will see you someday in paradise I miss you Adieu elder sister
