The remains of late Dr (Mrs.) Blessing Amogechukw AC – Chukwuocha (Nee Ojukwu) were interred in her home town Itu, Ezinihitte Local Government Area in Imo State, after a funeral service in St. Peter’s Anglican Church Itu.
The deceased, who was the wife of the Vicar and Administrator of  the Cathedral Church of the Transfiguration of Lord (CATOL) Owerri, was until her death a lecturer at the Federal University of Technology Owerri (FUTO) .  He died at the age of 51.
Preaching the sermon at the service, the Anglican Bishop of Owerri, Rt. Rev. Cyril C. Okorocha, called on Christians to trust in God and allow Jesus Christ to hold their hands when the storms of life challenges them, since He said, “no one can take you away, until I finish the   house I prepared for you, “I will go with you.
Bishop Okorocha reminded the people that no one either holds his life or knows tomorrow except the creator of the universe who prospers anybody who is in terms with Him, stressing the need to make peace with God when one is alive for Him to take care of the faithful.
In his remarks, the prelate counseled leaders in authority to amend their evil ways where ever they are as nobody knows his tomorrow, noting that God puts someone in a position to repent else He punishes him at the appropriate time, pointing out that the problem with Nigeria is with the leadership and followership as God gives leaders to the people according to their standards and way of life.
In the family oration, the deceased, Dr (Mrs.) Ngozi AC Chukwuocha was described as an academic of note, a scientist and researcher and mentor of her students and junior colleagues, adding that she was a hard working, thorough, God fearing, loving and compassionate woman who maintained a warm relationship with the students and the FUTO at large.
The deceased according to records was an evangelist who touched the lives of so many people with good news through the social media, reminding them of these words, “is your name in the book of life.”
The choirs of CATOL Owerri, led by Sir Sam Ojukwu and Mr. Benjamin with St. Peter’s Choir  Itu and St. Luke’s Anglican Church Amakohia Owerri led by Mr. Emma Asinobi rendered requiem songs and songs of praises at the funeral service.
