Omotara Azeezat Danmole (nee Adelagun) was born on the 17th of March 1947 in Lagos, Nigeria. She was the second child of seven by her mother, Mrs. Kaletu Kehinde, second wife of Faramobi Ajadi Adelagun.
Omotara attended a few primary and secondary schools in her youth around the Lagos area, including Ade Oshodi Primary, African Church Grammar School, Shagamu Secondary School, and then eventually finished her secondary school education at Oriwu Secondary School, Ikorodu.
From where on completion of her studies, she left Nigeria for the United Kingdom to join her sweetheart. She was an advocate for sound education and encouraged and supported all seven of her children to obtain sound education in their various fields of endeavour. She was always proud of them and grateful to God for their achievements in life.
On returning to Nigeria she set up Tara Commercial Enterprises, a trading business that dealt in the sales of various commodities of which crockery, dinnerware and glassware were the most outstanding. She was a brilliant businesswoman whose major skills included excellent interpersonal skills, hard work, commitment and dedication. She maintained a friendly, warm cordial relationship with most of her customers and many of them became an addition to her extended family. She often travelled far and wide to attend their weddings, birthdays, child dedications and other ceremonies and celebrations. She was particularly well known for her business in the eastern part of the country and to traders in the famous Aba International Market. She was fondly called ‘Madam Tara’ by most of them. She was able to build the business to an enviable level of success and through its proceeds did a lot of philanthropic works, supporting, financing and aiding many people in their various endeavours of life.
In 1993 Omotara returned to the UK once more, partially for health reasons but also to be closer to her children and grandchildren of which there are currently eight in total. She was known widely for her generosity not only to her children and grandchildren but to the many she supported to build new lives and journeys in the UK. As a devout Christian she led a life of principle and justness, and her Christian faith lay at the heart of all her endeavours.
Her humour, loving heart and light will be missed by many.
