The Mason, Harmon, Bracewell & Turkett Families are grieving the loss of their precious Mommie, Mother, “Fanfan”, Ms. Harmon, Grandma, Sister Frances and “Cous”.  Reverend Mother was known to most of her friends in Liberia as simply “Cous.”

Following a brief period of illness, our beloved Mother’s unexpected passing occurred on Wednesday, September 6, 2017, at the 4th hour and 5th minute post meridian, in Austell, Georgia, United States of America.

Mother returned to Liberia and soon became the Founder & Pastor of the Eternal Church of Christ Ministries.

As a dedicated public servant for many years, Rev. Mother served her country faithfully at the Ministry of State & Presidential Affairs. In the private sector, she founded “The White House” in Congo Town where she displayed her many talents as an Interior Decorator and Event Planner.

There are many loved ones who honor Rev. Mother for a life well lived.
