With profound sadness and heavy hearts, the Momolu, Lackey, and Northam families announce the home-going of their beloved mother, sister, aunty, grandmother and friend, Marie Momolu. This sad event occurred on Wednesday, September 29, 2021, in Monrovia, Liberia, after a brief illness.

She leaves to cherish her memories: Daughters, Kpanah Taizu Lackey, Jetty Momolu, Josephine Lackey-Northam (Elwood.) Grandchildren, Pearl Daybah Momolu, Ivy Tuazama, Charles “CJ” Bias, Jr., and Claudia Marie Northam. She also leaves to mourn her loss, her brother, Clarence K Momolu, several nieces and nephews, grand and great-grand nieces and nephews, and a host of other relatives and friends.

Marie left labor for eternity with lots of love and cherished memories of families and friends.
