Celebration of LifeThe Late Lucinda L. Witherspoon

It is with profound sadness and deep regret that the Witherspoon, Mlendough, Minor, and Roberts families announce the home-going of our beloved relative, Lucinda L. Witherspoon affectionately called “Aunty Lue, Spoon, Cee Cee.” This mournful event occurred on Thursday, June 13, 2019 at Taylor Hospital in Ridley Park, PA.

The deceased obtained professional training in midwifery and served as the first midwife at the Francis J. Grant Hospital in Greenville, Sinoe County for many years. “Spoon” also served as a nurse at the Booker Washington Institute (BWI) in Kakata, Margibi County, Republic of Liberia. “Aunty Lue” was dedicated, devoted and committed to her profession. She was people oriented and was indeed diligent to serve her patients and their families with enthusiasm. The love for her profession was the hallmark of her life.

Lucinda L. Witherspoon is survived by her nieces, nephews, cousins, and a host of other relatives and friends in Liberia, the USA, and other parts of the world.
