She Graduated from Oneida Baptist Institute (OBI) in Oneida KY in May 2010 as an outstanding citizen and scholar. At OBI she was an active member of the school choir and won several awards.

In September 2010, she enrolled at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois where she took up a major in International Relations and a minor in Business Management. While at Knox, she was very active and passionate about extracurricular activities, including The Harambee Club (African Students Group), where she served as the President of the organization until her passing. She was a member of the Tri Delta Sorority, a Knox Alumni Ambassador, and volunteered in different capacities on campus.

Tundun was a blessing to everyone around her, and had the most infectious smile. She was a confident person with a very optimistic attitude toward life, and impacted so many people positively.

Tundun was also most lovable and endearing, with a heart for service and a passion to give and nurture. These traits made her stand out as the favorite in most circles she found herself in.

Above all, Tundun loved the Lord and served Him faithfully until her passing.

Tundun went to be with the Lord on the morning of Sunday, October 28th, 2012 when she was struck by a drunk driver while walking with friends on her college campus.

She is survived by her Mother, Helen; Sisters, Omolara and Olawunmi; brothers Oladipo and Itunoluwa; Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and Grandparents.
