Yenagoa. – Mr Daniel Iworiso-Markson, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State, has lost his mother, Mrs. Salome Iworiso-Markson.

Iworiso-Markson announced the demise of his mother in a terse statement on Monday evening in Yenagoa.

He said his mother died at the age of 71 on the night of Friday, July 8, 2016 in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, after she was rushed to the hospital.

He said that she had suffered a prolonged terminal illness, which spanned several years, until her passing away last Friday.

“She was everything, a matriarch and a pillar of support that was known and loved for her positive influence and contributions to lives of everyone who knew her,” Iworiso-Markson said.

The governor’s spokesman said that the late Salome, who was fondly called ‘Sisi’ by those who knew her, is survived by six of her remaining children, an extended family and eight grandchildren.

He added that funeral arrangements would be announced later.
