It is with a VERY heavy heart and a deep sense of personal loss that I write to inform you of the passing away of our dear friend and colleague – Ms. Oyintare Edith Yeri, which sad event occurred in California, USA on Saturday the 22nd of April, 2017.
‘Tare, as she was fondly called, was a long-standing, active and extremely committed member of the SBL who served in various capacities, under every Council of the Section since its inception, and contributed immensely to its growth and development.
None of us will forget the critical roles ‘Tare played in the planning of virtually all ten editions of our annual Business Law Conference. Indeed, prior to her untimely demise, she was deeply involved in the planning of the 11th edition (coming up in June this year) as a member of the CPC and of course, in what had become her traditional role, as Chairperson of the Venues & Accommodation Sub-Committee.
To say that we are devastated will be putting it very, very mildly. We will however try to seek solace in the beautiful person that ‘Tare was, in and out, and the selfless life she lived – a life that was devoted to God and to others.
As a body, we will be fully involved in the obsequies and other activities that will be held to mark ‘Tare’s passing albeit we will be guided by the arrangements to be announced by her family.
To this end, we will be paying a condolence visit to her family, on Friday the 28th of April, at 2pm, at the home of her Sister, Mrs. Elvina Obidi – 20 Romay Road, Romay Gardens, off Lekki-Ajah Expressway (Opp Nicon Town), Lagos.
May I request all those who would wish to be a part of our delegation to kindly contact the Administrator as soon as possible to enable us (and her family) plan adequately for the visit.
May ‘Tare rest in perfect peace.
Chairman, Section on Business Law
