Psalm 23:1 "The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want."

The Morgan, Elliott, Woart and Wesley families announce the Blessed Home Going of our beloved mother, aunty, grandmother, cousin and friend, Elizabeth Tiadeh Elliott Morgan, daughter of the Late Mr. & Mrs. Benjamin Nyema and Luvenia Woart Elliott of Rocktown, Maryland County, Liberia.

Elizabeth was sent at an early age from Cape Palmas by her father to live with his sister, Mrs.Jane Elliott Collins on Clay Street in Monrovia. She attended St. Theresa Convent School and the College of West Africa (CWA). She completed accreditation at a teacher training program sponsored by the University of Liberia.

Elizabeth was married to the Late James Sie Dio Morgan and was blessed with 6 children: Dwela Morgan, Sie Dio (Cha Cha) Morgan & Le-Etta; Hnede Morgan; Wede Morgan-Cummings & Jenkins; Wani Morgan, Nyema Morgan.

Elizabeth (Teacher Morgan/Ma Morgan) was an Elementary School Teacher at the former Bassa Community Afternoon School under the principalships of Mrs. Ora Horton, and later Mr. Harry Nyeah. After years of teaching, she left the Bassa Community School and obtained employment through Mr. J. Wah-Doe Bedell at the B. W. Harris Episcopal Elementary School under the principalships of Fr. Emmanuel Johnson; Fr. EGW King; and Mr. J. Wah-Doe Bedell. While at B. W. Harris she also taught in the afternoon at the Demonstration Elementary School under the principalship of Mrs. Rebecca J.N. Wilson. Many of the students she taught appreciated her counseling and guidance. She made wonderful and lasting friendships with teachers she worked with and met while working at the various schools. We thank all the wonderful people our mother met during her life.

We especially acknowledge the Late Mr. A. Klay Youh, a true relative, brother and father. Mr. Youh became a father figure after the sudden passing of our father one of his closest friends. He will always have a special place in our hearts.
