The Home Going Service and Celebration of Life 
Mrs. Marie Elaine Manning Crusoe

The Crusoe, Manning, Clarke, Broderick, Sackor, Massaquoi, and Holmes families announce with deepest regrets the sudden death of their loving mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend Mrs. Marie Elaine Manning Crusoe, wife of the Late Col. Thomas A.G. Crusoe of the Liberia National Police. This sad and heartbreaking event occurred on Sunday, November 17, 2013 at the Emory Johns Creek Hospital in Johns Creek, Georgia, USA at about 6:31 pm after an ephemeral illness. As we are sadden by her pathway to Heaven, we give thanks for her life and celebrate her wonderful deeds.

Nanna as she was affectionately called by her children, grandchildren, family and friends leaves to mourn her darling children: Jestina "Baby-girl" Crusoe-Jackson, Predimental Claudia Precious Crusoe-Massaquoi(Anthony), Henry Decruse Crusoe, Thelma "Teta" Crusoe-Holmes(Reginald), Wilhelmina "Mangie" Crusoe, Patricia Crusoe, Alice "Mamie" Crusoe Beh and Alfred Vormon (Joanne), her cherished grandchildren, brother Dr. Charles A. Clarke (Amy), sisters, Mrs. Janet Sherman, Mrs. Frances Farrah (Aloysius) Mrs. Leona Freeman (Harvey) Aunts, Uncles, Nieces, Nephews and a host of other Relatives and dear Friends in Liberia, West Africa, the United States of America and the World.

She was a devoted, loving and dependable mother, family and friend. "The People's Nanna" She will indeed be missed and remembered by those she encountered.
