    “Our late sister was a virtuous woman. She lived an exemplary life, filled with humility, service to humanity and rare charity,” he said.
    Speaking further, the Methodist Benue Arch Bishop said that the deceased was a faithful Christian, who influenced many positively.
    Earlier in his remarks, the Norcross Cathedral Presbyter, Very Reverend M.M. Abogye said that the church would really miss the absence of Mrs. Dickson.
    “The void she has created would be difficult to fill. We pray God consoles the immediate family and the Methodist Church.
    After the service, a long convoy of vehicles conveyed the remains of the deceased to her father’s compound, where she was interred beside his grave.
    Earlier on Thursday, thousands of family, friends and church members converged at the family resident in Otukpo GRA for the Service of Songs, which lasted till the early hours of Friday.
