The Gibson, Hage, Morris, Barclay, King, Dunn, Yancy, Butler, Williams, and Spencer families regret to announce the home going of their mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunty, mother-in-law, and cousin Ada Dee Gibson who quietly and peacefully passed away in Kakata, Liberia.  She was affectionately called Mama, Ma Ada, Ma Dee, Grandma Ada, Yea, Gbala, Gola woman, and Bong Mine Road girl.  Ma Ada resided in the USA over 22 years; however in her later years, she insisted on returning to her farm on Bong Mine Road, Kakata, Liberia.
