Madam Sheila Solarin, MBE, MFR, Dies Today At 88

Coordinator of Tai Solarin Organisation (TSO) Sulaiman Dave Bola-Babs and Chairman of TSO Mr. Akinbayo A. Adenubi, mni, welcoming Madam Sheila Solarin to the Victoria Island, Lagos venue of the 2009 Tai Solarin National Memorial Lecture.

Our heroine, Mrs. Sheila Solarin, MBE, MFR, dies today at 88. May her heroic gentle soul rest in perfect peace. She was a great role model and ideal wife cum partner in patriotic progress with Dr. Tai Solarin. We shall greatly miss this innocent intellectual and teacher of thousands of Ex-Mays and students of other schools where she taught English language.

Her biography "Sheila: A Lady of Courage" by Adewale Bakare is a must-read for all her admirers. Sheila, you are a great amazon.
