Mother Hannah Blobah Mason Yedey

The Mason, Yedey, Johnson, Farngalo, Horton and Vambran families announce with deepest sorrow, the death of their mother, sister, aunt, cousin and spiritual mother, Mrs. Hannah Blobah Mason Yedey, on Sunday, October 6, 2019, in Sacramento California.

Mother Yedey, a devout Christian and Prayer Warrior, will be remembered by many through her stellar and lengthy profession as a midwife and nurse commencing at the then Government Hospital on Snapper Hill; then later, at the Monrovia Maternity Center. The Cooper Clinic, under her cousin, the late Dr. Nehemiah Cooper, owner and Chief Medical Officer, became the mainstay of her career until the transition to the Seventh Day Adventist Clinic; where she served briefly before culminating her nursing years at the Snapper Hill Clinic; serving under another cousin, the late Dr. Varsay Sirleaf, owner and Chief Medical Officer.

Mourning this irreplaceable loss are her children: Hazel Yedey, Christopher Yedey, Precious (Kinne) Yedey, Cietta Yedey Kollie, Georgia Yedey and Moses Sumo Dolo; her sisters: Ziamah Mason, Maureen Mason, Barbara Bush Mason, Pauline Gibson, Juanita Logan, and Sarah Williams Moore; brothers: Abraham J. Mason (Marie), Francis Chuchu Horton (Gus), Emmanuel Vambran (Carolyn); her cousins, Angel Cooper, Maryann Cooper Melton, Wannie Cooper; several grand and great grand children, nieces, nephews, cousins; members of the El Shaddai World Evangelism Ministries, and a host of other relatives and friends.

Mother Yedey was predeceased by her husband, Mr. Kojo Yedey; parents, Mrs. Hazel Boto Johnson Mason and Mr. Jacob Paygar Mason and Mrs. Pearlie Logan Mason; her aunt, Ms. Marley Mason; sons, James Cooper and Arnold (Dumpy) Yedey; siblings, James Madison Mason, Emma Konah Mason Farngalo,Veto Anthony Mason, Ericson Mason and Jacob Hillary Mason; her dearest cousins, Marion Cooper Givens and Roseline Cooper Richards and her friend and longtime co-worker, Mrs. Flossy King.
