Death Announcement: Nancy G. Nimene Nah

In anticipation of the resurrection, the Nah and Nimene families announce the passing, in her 91st year, of Nancy Gbei Nimene Nah.  This unforgettable event occurred on Christmas Eve 2012 at her residence in Alexandria, Virginia (USA).  When Liberia's devastating civil war ended several decades of service as the country's first professional nutritionist, Mrs. Nah moved to the USA, where she spent the last 21 years of her life.  Celebrating that life are:  her brothers - S. Moses Nimene, N. Thomas Nimene; her children - Helena Nah, Suzette Nah Love, Lawrence Nah, Blecho Nah (JoAnn), Alecia Kallon, Nancy Burphy, Leatrice Jackson and N. Charwin Nah; her grandchildren - Georgia Nah Massaquoi (Ernest), Edna "AC" Nah Gibson (Gerry), Oretha Nimene Johnson (Ralph), Dorothy Lewis (Hans), Taneh Love, Monsio Love Joof (Anthony), Tahplah Nah, Whiyata Burphy, Sama Nah, Taloh Burphy and Tyler Nah. Also giving thanks for Nancy Nah's life are her great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, foster family and friends at home and abroad.
