Elizabeth Parteh Nyeplu

With heavy hearts and a profound sense of loss, the Parteh, Nyeplu, Gaye, Richards, Doe and Nimene families of Elizabeth Parteh Nyeplu , Hannah W. Richards daughter, announce her death. She was born on May 18, 1962 and stepped into eternity on July 18th, 2014 while visiting in Africa. Elizabeth touched many lives throughout the United States, Africa and other parts of the world. A number of organizations benefited from Elizabeth's leadership over the years. She served as a member of the Organization of Liberians in Minnesota (OLM) as part of the election committee . A current second term president of the Maryland County Organization, Minnesota Chapter. Because Elizabeth felt that there was more for Liberian women and young girls, she was a founding member of the Liberian Women's Initiative. A program through which Liberian women and young girls were provided opportunities for learning and bettering their lives. This organization encouraged literacy skills for women, tutoring for young girls, and preparation for college education for women of all ages.

She is survived by her two children Isaac Moniba Randolph Jr. and Lawrina Gaye .
Siblings: Francis Richards, Lawrina Richards-Doe, Louisa Parteh Nimene, Isaiah Parteh {Lisa}. Three others pre-deceased her: Lamuel, Mary and Mark, and her Mother Hannah Wannie Richards who was buried on July 18, 2014.
Uncles: Rev. Mark J.Richards Jr., J. Nyemah Richards and John Coco Richards.

The kids and family wish to bring Elizabeth back home to the United States for burial. A memorial has been established in order to assist the children with all expenses related to bringing her body home for interment. A Memorial account has been set up at Wells Fargo Bank, contact Isaiah Parteh or Isaac Randolph for the account info. There are branches all over the United States and this is to make donations as simple as possible.

We are encouraging all who knew Elizabeth or whose lives have been touched by her to contribute to her memorial fund.
