RACHEL FAMATTA DORKPOR GOBA
"Nnâ' Allah í Seyê í mama"

Sunrise: December 8, 1939
Sunset: December 27, 2014

But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, KJV).

I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify The Lord with me, and let us exalt His Name together (Psalm 34, v1-3, KJV).

The Gobas, Totos, and Ricks families announce the triumphant home-going celebration of our loving Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Cousin, Aunty, and Friend Rachel Famatta Dorkpor Goba, who fell asleep in the Lord on December 27, 2014 at 4:40pm in Marietta, Georgia.

Rachel Famatta Dorkpor Goba (affectionately called Mmama, and Love) was the daughter of the late Honorable Paramount Chief, Kpannah Goba and the late Kayma Toto-Goba. She is survived by her children: Milton Nagbo Ricks (Decontee Brumskine-Ricks); Mardea Lois Ricks; Wilhemina Feta Ricks; Evangeline Summon Agbogu (Dr Bob Agbogu); and Kayma P.

May her beautiful soul, and the souls of the faithful departed, rest in perfect peace!
