Deaconess Victoria Woghiren was born in the heart of Great Ugonoba. She was the first child of a renowned politician Pa & Mrs Amenaghawon Osifo, his father was the first councillor of Ugonoba, he was a great leader & politician of his time.

Deaconess V.I Woghiren later came to Benin as a young beautiful teenager to pursue further education. She started a career as a midwife and worked in Specialist Hospital in Benin City.
As the call of a nursing mother became enormous,mum later resigned from the circular job and stayed at home to focus more in bringing us up as growing children.
Sweet mum or mummy the great as we popularly call her, was not comfortable just doing that alone, she is great at multitasking.
Given to this, mummy the great thought of and devised a stream of income as mum is multi-skilled, a virtuous mum. Mum, became a business tycoon, major Distributor of WAPCO CEMENT, wholesale distributor of Rice, a pioneer in AVON beauty distributor, sales of His and Hers fashion, bags, shoes, perfumes, Jewellery, Coral beads, Laces and Hollandaise, name it, mum sold it, a great success as a mother, wife and a business woman.
Mummy brought us all up in the Fear and Admonition of the Lord, in love and unity, always giving her very best, and shares with all. Mum has a unique understanding with all of us, every child is a best friend and a confidante to us all. Mummy is always contented and grateful to God.
Mummy does not need riches or recognition to lead a joyful and fulfilled life. Mummy is simple, pure and gentle, always praying, believing the best for everyone. Mummy never hurts a fly.

In 1982, she became the Matron of DOF Institute of Catering and Hotel Management in Benin City,she was popularly called MAMA MATRON by the Students, where she inspired many successful women in that industry today, including a Nollywood actress Ngozi.

As a child of God, mummy serves relentlessly and fervently in her church and in the capacity of a Deaconess. She feeds the hungry, a cover for the naked and home for the homeless.

Everyone who crosses her path leaves blessed, morally, mentally, emotionally and sometimes financially, mummy shares all she has -- Love, prayers, and always promotes encourages peace and unity.

Mummy is a citadel of love and peace, a citadel of generosity, a beacon of hope and comfort, a Woman of substance and character, one in a million.

We just can't stop talking about you mum, because you are one of a kind, too rare to find.

He couldn't find anyone as worthy as you mum, and being an obedient, meek and humble child of God, you answer, 'yes Lord, I will come'. We are blessed because you answer to His call, we are blessed because you went to occupy that all strategic and important office for God, your Maker, sweet mum Victoria, we are blessed because you are blessed.

Praise, praise to God Almighty, Him alone we give all the glory, Him alone is worthy, worthy of our praise now and forever more. Amen.

Endless love,
