Mrs Stella Uch,the wife of Gordy Uche SAN has passed on. A post released by Onyebuchi Ememanka, read thus
“These are extremely challenging times for the very illustrious Uche family of IGBERE, Bende LGA of Abia State.
I love this family because they believe in hard work and professionalism. They have laboured to get to the top echelon of society.
Last week, one of their sons and a very successful architect, Endy Uche was buried at Igbere. It was heart breaking seeing a young man full of life take his bow from this life.
While the family tries to come to terms with the death of Arc. Endy, tragedy struck again. This time, Mrs. Stella Uche, wife of Gordy Uche, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria has passed on.
I can honestly imagine how the learned SAN feels right now. Losing his younger brother and his very dear wife within so short a time is indeed a great burden to bear.
Those who knew the Late Mrs Uche would attest to the fact that she was a most pleasant and beautiful lady. She was a huge pillar of support to Oga Gordy and she bore him two lovely sons.
I still remember her when they were in Aba. She and her husband would never miss any social engagement organized by the NBA Aba branch. Her face brightened the atmosphere. She was a lovely lady indeed.
What can one say to Oga Gordy at a time like this, other than to ask God to strengthen him. Nothing more. The burden and pain are huge indeed.
They are enough to break even the strongest of men. But I know Oga Gordy will pull through. God will help him.
Dear friends, especially lawyers from Aba, let’s remember the Uches in our prayers. This family has given a lot to our profession. They have brought honor and pride to Aba and our state, Abia.
Their mother, The Hon. Justice Uche (Rtd) still stands tall today as the first first female High Court Judge in the old Imo State. She was an impeccable jurist.
Their first son, Chief Chris Uche is a Senior Advocate of Nigeria and he was later followed by his younger brother, Gordy.
I don’t know of any other family from these parts that can boast of two biological brothers who are Senior Advocates of Nigeria.
Chris and Gordy are shinning lights in the legal profession. They both started in a Aba before relocating to Abuja. Their law firm remains in Aba.
Oga Gordy, may the good Lord strengthen you. May you find courage and divine comfort at this most difficult time.
It is well Sir.”
She will be buried on the 18th of November 2017
