Ma Vonyee Kruah Guah

“When I stand before God at the end of my life, I do not want to have a single bit of unused kindness, talent or energy left in me. I want to report to God that I actually used everything He gave me to serve His children.” Ma Vonyee’s common advice to her children.
The Guah family, and the Sanniquellie Community, are moaning after the passing away of Ma Vonyee Kruah Guah, Assisting Superintendent for Sanniquellie Marketing Association. Born in Louplay, Nimba County on January 25, 1945, Ma Vonyee left this world in Neiplay, Nimba County on July 14, 2015 after a protractive illness. She was married to the late Samuel Gono Guah in 1963 and quite often expressed her pride in being a very devoted and hard working mother—successfully laboring for 9 children under the rain and sun of Sanniquellie, Nimba County, including:

  • Winifred Tenneh Waritay Guah (Sanniquellie, Liberia)
  • Matthew Gbeyadiau Waritay Guah (South Carolina, USA)
  • Emmanuel Malugba Guah (Minnesota, USA)
  • Michael Guah (Deceased – 1990 civil war)
  • Yakelay Guah (Deceased - 1985)
  • Winston Vonyee Guah (Monrovia, Liberia)
  • Milton Guah Guah (Monrovia, Liberia)
  • Benedict Guah (Monrovia, Liberia)
  • Comfort Neyamon Guah (Monrovia, Liberia)

Other experiencing this period of difficulty lost include her older brother (Willy Kruah) of Louplay, Nimba County, favorite cousin Mrs. Annie Kollie (Ganta, Nimba County), 18 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren (in Liberia, USA and Great Britain), cousins, nieces, nephews and a host of very good friends in Sanniquellie, all over Liberia, West Africa and around the world.
May the soul of our dear mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend as well as all the faithful departed rest in everlasting peace. We will always keep you in our memories, our prayers and thoughts everyday until we meet again on that glorious day.
