She is survived by her sister Mrs. Henrietta D. Artis of the United States, and her twin sister Ma Sanikor of Monnoah(Bomi County). She leaves to mourn her children: Rudy P. Turkett, Yvonne A.C. Bracewell (Amos Bedell) and Richlue B. Hill. Grandchildren: Rufus A. Turkett, Hawa C. Turkett, Munah Bedell, Precious Bedell, Tina Bedell and Nick Hill.

Godma demonstrated unconditional love for her family throughout her life. She was never tired, never seen with a frown and was always willing to help and heal. To understand what true love is, was to experience her love. We will truly miss that one of a kind love. We are humble and grateful that God blessed us with such a wonderful human being, a true angel. We will forever remain grateful and appreciative to her. Her love lives on in our hearts and we will cherish every moment we had with her. We love you Godma! May your soul rest in peace.
