Edith Louise Bright

The Bright, Goll and Hoggard families announce with deepest sorrow the sudden and unexpected home going of our darling Mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and cousin, Edith "Lady" Louise Bright, wife of the late Hon. Robert I.E. Bright, Sr.   We love her but God loves her best, and so she stole away and went to be with our Lord on the quiet morning of 13 December 2016, while resting in bed at her home in Chevy Chase, Maryland.

Our beloved ELB is survived by her loving children Rameses Bright (Ann), Juanita Macauley, Charles Bright, Omodele Bright Greaves, Wadai Bright-Dennis, Enid Omodele Cole, Womi Edith Bright Neal, Cecelia Bright Watson, Robert Bright, Jr., Lawrence Huskins (Florence), Nancee Oku Bright (Henrik), Sayonne Dennis (Tshekedi), Archie Bright (Suena), Emery Bright (Lisa), and precious grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Other in-laws with whom she shared a special bond included Victoria Bright, Jeanne Bright, Alma Bright and Cleopatra Sawyer Bright.  

She also leaves to mourn her loss her sisters Hawah Goll-Kotchi, Dee Goll, Janet Goll and Nancy Goll, her brothers Edwin Goll, Sr. (Christine), Wilmot Goll (Annie), Aaron Goll, David Reginald Goll (Annie), Musa Goll (Florence), James Goll (Josephine), Lansana "Old Man" Goll (Barnelia), and many dear nieces, nephews,cousins, and a host of other relatives, friends and loved ones.
