Marie Ajuah Dennis

“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” Matthew 5:4

With heavy hearts the Dennis, Garway, Pritchard and Gono families announce the death of our beautiful, jovial and dynamic mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend -Marie Ajuah Dennis- who passed away on July 15, 2013 in Gaithersburg, Maryland after a brief illness.

Marie loved people and valued her social connections. She will be sorely missed by her many friends in the United States and Liberia.

Before immigrating to the United States in 1991, she worked at the Liberia Water and Sewer Company for many years and before that the Ministry of Finance.

She is mourned by her children, Rowena Gono; Joseph Gono, Jr. (Victoria); one foster son Anthony Taplah; three grandchildren: Joel Gono, Nyen Ambrose Wotorson and Nuntiah Wotorson; her siblings and a host of relatives and friends in Liberia and the United States.
