Goodnight Gloria Mayen-David Ese - ITREALMS

Mrs. Gloria Mayen-David Ese, the amiable wife of the Marketing Communications Specialist, VDT Communications Limited, Mr. David Ese was finally laid to rest at the Atan Cemetery in Yaba, Lagos at the week in a solemn ceremony attended by family members, friends, and members of staff of VDT Communication and the media amidst tears.
Gloria’s journey to her final resting place began at the International Church of Christ, Eric Moore, Lagos, where a funeral service was held in her honour and encomiums were poured on her in remembrance of her good deeds.

In a biography written by her husband and read by the eldest child of the Ese family, Victoria, the deceased was described as a woman full of great virtues of hard work, integrity, honesty and self-disciplined, which imbibed at a very early age from her late parents: Mr. David John Africs and Mrs. Atim Africs both of Itu Local Government Area of  Akwa Ibom State.

Gloria who could be said to be a Lagos girl having started her primary education at All Saint Anglican school 2, Yaba, Lagos, was a bright child at school who applied the lessons of hard work and diligence she learnt from home to her education.

And such she kept to what seems to be an educational time frame drawn by her parents thereby completing her primary education in flying colours, as she sat for the common entrance, passed and gained admission into the then highly esteemed Our Lady of Apostles Secondary School.

 In secondary school she was a child that the school passed through engaging in every social activity as evident in her membership of Literary and Debating Society besides showing great interest and seriousness in her studies.
She later in her educational career saw fate taking her to another precious school, the Evwreni College, Evwreni, Ughelli Delta State from where she proceeded to Agbon Teachers College, Agbon, Delta State where she successfully earned her Grade Il Teacher Training Certificate.

Beyond distinguishing herself there in the literary and athletic skills in the school where she was a member of the Dramatic Society and a star player in Basketball and Handball team of the College, her stay at the Agbon College was late in life to launched her into a successful teaching career.

But she had to sponsor herself through school when she was admitted in 1999 to study Biology and Chemistry Education at the University of Lagos, Akaka, Yaba.

 Gloria was highly industrious and apart from few establishments that she worked with, she was mostly running her own business during her lifetime.

She worked with Perfecta Shoes, Nuga Paul Primary School and Marybene Nursery and Primary School besides running her fashion outfit Glovick Elegance, which gave her opportunity to make business trips to Dubai and other foreign cities to import unique wears, gold pendants and other accessories.

An astute business woman, Gloria who got married to her heart throb David in 2000 also ran Glovick Loyal Restaurant and much later went into transportation business.
Described by her husband as a supportive wife, an excellent adviser who helped her husband to make right and godly decisions, Gloria the last child in a nuclear family of 7, had three healthy and vibrant children; Victoria 17, Kingsley 15 and Promise 12.

According to her husband she was a very dedicated wife who stood by him through thick and thin adding that she had a kind and friendly disposition to others.

He said his late wife was totally down to earth with others, always giving a listening ear and acted as an adviser and counselor to the younger ones within and outside the church noting that she abhorred a flamboyance lifestyle, pomposity and pretense.

He said: “With Gloria ‘what you see is what you get’” saying that she preferred a moderate and quiet lifestyle and maintained few close friends.

The husband said that in their 18 years marriage, there has never been a time that he was called upon to settle a quarrel between her and any other person and she never brought her family any trouble.

Among those present at the church funeral service was the Managing Direction/CEO of VDT Communications Limited, Mr. Abiodun Omoniyi, VDT staff, friends and the media.
