Dr. Mo Babade

Dr. Mosunmola O. Babade

December 19, 1979 - July 4, 2018

Grief never ends… but it changes. It’s a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith. It is the price of love.

Dr. Mosunmola O. Babade, age 38, of Roanoke, Texas passed away on July 4, 2018 in Grapevine, Texas. She was born on December 19, 1979 to Grace (Owoeye) and late Chief Rufus Olajide Babade. On March 31, 2013 she married Valentino Vasy in Hawaii.

Mosunmola is survived by her husband, Valentino Vasy; four siblings, Gbenga Babade, Olayinka Kunuyi (Babade), Banks Babade and Oluwatomiwa Babade, mother, Grace Babade. 

Mosunmola was preceded in death by her father, Rufus Babade and brother, Ayodeji Babade.

Mosunmola had her early life in Lagos, Nigeria. In the US, she attended Stony Brook University New York where she qualified as a Physician Assistant. She later became a Physician by earning her Doctor of Medicine degree Northeast Ohio Medical University. She was extremely driven, smart and hard working and set high standards for herself and others around her. Mosunmola had her anesthesia residency at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and her fellowship in Interventional Pain Medicine at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation Ohio.

She was well respected by her colleagues and adored by her patients.

Mo was the kindest person we ever met, she would always put herself last and others first. This was her signature!

She was deeply loved and will be missed by all.

I still miss “Ms. Sunshine”. She always put a smile on my face. All doctors should learn from this sweet soul.
Paula Wasson, August 26, 2019 I miss you every day, but look for your giving sprit in all of life's vibrant truth--the word of God. Suzanne Hamilton, October 29, 2018 Dr. Mo was the kindest doctor. So sorry to hear this.
Carolyn Chamness, August 22, 2018 I just recently found out about the passing of Dr. Mo.  Dr. Mo was a very caring, beautiful person that will never be forgotten.
Donna, August 21, 2018 Doctor, you are truly blessed and you will be greatly missed! You are greatly loved by everyone you have encountered....Heaven received a hero in the form of an angel! Liz White, July 27, 2018 I miss you Sister MO.
Lekan Olatunji, July 17, 2018 I love you Lacretia, July 14, 2018 Dr. Mo was such an amazing woman! I am a somewhat sick person and out of all of the doctors I met she was by far the best. She was caring and compassionate. She didnt judge and showed support to you every step of the way. I want to send prayers to her family members because it must be tough losing someone as amazing and loving as her. You will be missed Dr. Mo. Kristen Simpson, July 12, 2018 I see by what others have written that my husband and I are not the only one who will miss your beautiful, sweet smiling face. It is hard to imagine that you are gone, you were always so kind, caring and attentive to whatever I had to tell you. You always greeted me with, "Hello beautiful lady, how are you doing"? You would tease my husband and tell him that he needed to take good care of me! You had great Christian values and for whatever reason God felt that he needed you with him, that he needed an Angel with your beautiful outlook and compassion, he left us, those who had been touched by you with heavy hearts. May the almighty God bless you and give your husband and family peace in the days to come.
Mary E. Martindale, July 12, 2018 You will be missed by so many who loved you but I know heaven has gained its finest angel yet. So sorry I didn’t get to see you enough while here on earth. I dwelt on our occasional calls which were so fulfilling it was as if we were never apart. Mo, Rest in power my beautiful sister and suffer no more. Your work is needed in heaven and it’s about the only reason that makes any sense to me. I LOVE U and till we meet and part no more you will always have a special place in my heart.
Victoria Agbetor-Fumey, July 11, 2018 I am so sorry you are gone, Dr Mo. I respect and honor you for the loving care, kindness, and compassion you gave to our shared patients over the years. I'm a home health nurse. I can tell you. My patients loved you. And so do I. God bless you, and your family. Barb Shipes, July 10, 2018 You are the embodiment of who we should all strive to be, a loving caring spiritual person. Dr Mo learning of your passing is devastating, you are and always will be more than our doctor, you are our friend. My mom and I love you dearly and will miss your beautiful smile and kind words and prayers. Love and prayers for your husband and family at this time. Fly high beautiful angel and rest in the arms of the lord.

Brooklyn Kuhn, July 7, 2018 It is with tender and genuine sadness that I write this in celebration of the life of my friend. Mo your life was taken away from us too soon. I do wonder was it because Jesus wanted to keep you? However, this is a question without an answer at this time maybe someday we will understand why we had to lose our dear friend, wife, daughter, mother to many, sister , auntie, colleague and mentor. Mo was all that and more. We miss you dearly. We will continue to celebrate the life you lived and remember all of the remarkable things you accomplished, and try to do a little of what you did for humanity in such a short time. Mo your memory will live on in all of us forever; we appreciate your friendship and will never forget you. You were such a hard-working, intelligent, caring and very thoughtful person and had a lot of people who cared about you; our loss was heaven’s gain. You have touched us all with your warm heart, bright smile and beautiful personality. You shared a special bond with each person and made everyone feel extra special – you just had that way with people. You always made sure to remember special occasions for everyone: anniversaries, birthdays, your phone calls, your gifts and cards for all those dear to you. I want to thank you for mentoring my three children whenever you saw them, and a week ago wanting to mentor my middle son even more. I want to personally thank you again for taking the time to come with your husband to hand my son an incredible birthday gift at home last weekend in spite of how difficult it must have been to walk. I cherish dearly the time we spent together and still had my thank you card undelivered when you took ill, I so wanted you out so I we can talk more. I know I speak for all of us when I say how much you will be missed; we love you and will miss you dearly! Adiós mi amigo te veo de nuevo en el cielo Millicent For Anigwe Family. Millicent & Fredrick Anigwe, July 7, 2018 Mo was one of those beautiful people who loved others and gave of herself abundantly. She is reaping her eternal rewards with her Saviour now. How thankful we are for the life she was given. Prayers for peace and comfort to all who were blessed to know her. Cindy Sigmon, July 7, 2018 Dr. Mo, (Woman of Favor)... Strong finish, Job well done!! For the Bible states in the book of John 11:25, "Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live."  May God continue to strengthen everyone as they go through the transition of living life without Mo in the physical.  Know that she is no longer hurting, paining, have any worries, or cares of this world... she is now FREE!!  AMEN & God bless... -Dr. Samuel & NaKisha Clarkson-Williams
NaKisha Clarkson-Williams, July 6, 2018 Dear Mo, I will never forget the first time we met during the fellowship and how you were confident that you will match in the pain fellowship program and you surely did. It was destined that we train together. Despite it was only for one year, but you made me feel we have been friends for years. You will be forever cherished for your smile, energy, kindness and generosity. May you rest in the bosom of your heavenly Father. Amen.
Sherif Costandi, July 6, 2018 Beautiful on the inside and outside. I am so blessed to have known Mo as a friend and also had her as my doctor for 3 years. She was never too busy to pray with me and a few months ago I was able to pray for her. God gained a true Angel and I know you are no longer suffering. I sure wish He would have let you stay here with us though. Love and miss you! Prayers to your family.
Dana Patton, July 6, 2018 Dr. Mo was a unique doctor whose compassion and kindness extended well beyond her practice of medicine. She will be greatly missed by all of her patients and friends. Our prayers continue to go out for her husband and her family at this difficult time, but we take comfort in the assurance that she is in the the arms of a loving God. Charles & Barbara Sowell, July 6, 2018 We will miss you, Mo! Heaven gained a beautiful angel on July 4th! Until we meet again, may God bring peace to your family! Ellen Rosenquist , July 6, 2018 May your soul rest in peace Mosunmola. I will forever cherish the memories we shared throughout the 20+ years of our friendship. Thanks for making a positive impact while you were here! Chi Ogbuehi , July 6, 2018 Though He brings grief, He will show compassion, so great is His unfailing love. (Lamentations 3:32) My earnest prayers are continually with the family and Valentino. As Mo is with our Father and Jesus, may we find great comfort in their unfailing love for her! May the time of mourning be victoriously rooted in Mo’s love for Worship, Prayer and God’s Word. She did what most only dreamt of, accomplished way beyond her years and loved selflessly in her giving of self and resources. May she remain a wonder and joy in all our hearts. Love you and surely missing you Mo.
Denise Clarke, July 6, 2018 She was a lovely soul. May her soul rest in peace. My sympathy goes to her husband and her family; may God comfort them. Adieu! Oluwatosin ogunmefun(NEGSS '92), July 6, 2018 Our condolences to family. We will miss you.
mark gladstein, July 5, 2018 I am truly heartbroken to hear of Dr. "Mo" passing away. She was such a delight to be around. She was my husband, Terry Fisher, doctor for the last 3 years and he LOVED her. He passed unexpectedly in March. She extended her sympathy to me. Prayers of comfort for her family.
Kathy Fisher, July 5, 2018
I am truly heartbroken to learn of Dr. Mo's death. She was one of the most kind, caring and truly unique doctors I have ever met. She cared not only for the health ailment but for the individual's heart, happiness and soul. She was uplifting, encouraging and helped me greatly - what a wonderful doctor and inspiration to all. I was very lucky to have known her and know she will be very missed and must have helped so many. Sending love and prayers to her dear family and to her wonderful Team that were equally kind and passionate. Thinking of you Dr. Mo. Melissa Deaton, July 5, 2018 Dr. Mo was a wonderful doctor and person. We are in shock at her passing. She was such a special lady that we will truly miss so much. We are praying for your family during this difficult time. Mark and Karen Kidd, July 5, 2018
