Mrs. Marjon Hnede Smith -Kolleh

“Further along we’ll know all about it, further along we’ll understand why, we will understand it better by and by.”
 Sunrise: March 14, 1968 -   Sunset: April 9, 2013

It is with contrite hearts that the Kolleh, Smith, Tubman, Campbell, Delaney, and Cummings families announce the home going of our darling wife, loving mother, dependable daughter, sister, aunt, niece, cousin, and friend, Mrs. Marjon Hnede Smith -Kolleh.  This sad and heartbreaking transition occurred on Tuesday, April 9, 2013, at the Shady Grove Adventist Hospital in Rockville, Maryland. 

Marjon and family resided in Rogers, Minnesota.  To know Marjon was to love her. She had a tender and loving spirit about her and cared for her family with passion and grace. Her smile captured our hearts. God needed another flower in His garden so He plucked her from our midst when we least expected. We know that garden looks awesome with her brilliant presence!

Marjon was predeceased by her brother, Jon Smith, Jr., mother, Mrs. Marjorie Tubman-Smith of Oldest Congo Town, Liberia, her grandmother Mrs. Viola Campbell -Tubman Gibson (Teacher Viola), grandfather, Roosevelt Tubman, Sr., and her paternal grandparents, Mr. & Mrs. Clement Wede-Sie Smith of East Orange, New Jersey.

Marjon Hnede Smith- Kolleh is survived by her darling husband, Rev. Christian Kolleh, daughter, Pailah-Meg Kolleh, sons, Christian,  Alageminie , Calvin Kolleh;  father Jon A. Smith, Sr. of Oldest Congo Town, Liberia; sisters, Wede Smith-Musa (Abdallah), Nigeria, Mnannoh Smith -Fayiah (Abraham), Liberia, the Kolleh, Smith, Tubman, Campbell, Delaney, and Cummings families, and friends.

We will MISS you Marjon!!!!  MAY your SOUL REST IN PERFECT PEACE!
