The three children who died in a tragic crash on Highway 17 on New Year’s Day will be laid to rest this Saturday.

The crash claimed the lives of the Osagie children — Britney, six, and her brothers Flourish, 10, and Destiny, 11 — and sent another 10-year-old boy to hospital. The children's mother, Uche Osagie was uninjured in the crash, while another female passenger suffered minor injuries.

The children are survived by their mother Uche (Ugbechie) Osagie and and father, Friday Osagie. They are remembered by family and friends in Nigeria, Canada and the United States.

“The children will be remembered as full of light and love. They embraced life and lived it to the fullest, enjoying singing, dancing, and sports,” the obituary reads.

Friends are invited to the visitation from 2-5 p.m. on Jan. 17 at Lougheed Funeral Home, 252 Regent Street at Hazel Street.

A funeral service will be held at Glad Tidings Church, 1101 Regent Street, on Saturday, Jan. 18 at 11 a.m. Interment will be at the Civic Memorial Cemetery in Sudbury.
