Joseph Toe Tehmeh

The Sondah, Tehmeh, and Paye families announce with deep regret the home going of their son Joseph Toe Tehmeh. This sad event occurred on May 28th, 2016 at the Laurel Regional Medical Center, in Laurel Maryland, U.S.A.

To mourn his loss, Toe, as he was affectionately called, leaves behind his wife Doris Kofa-Tehmeh, four children ( Jeremy, Camille, Joel , and Jorine), his father Mr. George Sondah, his brothers Samuel Sondah ( California, U.S.A.) , Richard Sondah, Alfred Sondah, Jerry Sondah, George Sondah,  nieces, nephews, 2 grand children, and host of other relatives and thousands of friends in Liberia, Germany, Ivory Coast, and the U.S.A. Joe was loved by everyone and everyone loved him. His smile and compassion for all will be missed. His mother, Winnie Paye Sondah, his brother Paul, and sister Helen predeceased him.

Mourning this tremendous loss is his special adopted family in Germany, Brigitte Dunkel, Wolfgang Dunkel, Kai Dunkel, and Joerg Dunkel. From Liberia, Ivory Coast, Germany, the shock of his home going at this age seems like a sad dream.  Toe, we will miss you dearly. Rest in Peace.///  Benedict Philips
