It is with great sadness, the Dixon and Yah families announce the passing of their Beloved Mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and daughter, Zobondo Yah-Dixon. She passed away at the age of 74-years old, on Tuesday, April 12th, 2022 at her residence in Monrovia, Liberia. She was surrounded by her beloved grandchildren and the family pet cookie.

Mrs. Yah-Dixon was raised by Missionaries at The Suehn Industrial Academy in Bomi County while receiving her primary and High school education. While attending Suehn, she worked as a volunteer in the Dispensary Health Center as a Nursing Assistant. She matriculated to Monrovia where she worked at Bright Functional School and Early Learning Foundation School as a Matron. Sis. Zobondo was ordained and served as a Deaconess at The Christ Healing Chapel in Monrovia.

Deaconess Yah-Dixon was an advocator for the people in her village, Beayukes. She would stand up and speak up for them. During the civil war in Liberia, she was the one who advocated for the distribution of food and supplies and the well-being for her village. Many times, she advocated for the safety of little girls to stop their abduction for sex trafficking and the recruitment of little girls and boys as child soldiers. She also advocated for a Clinic to be built in her village to supply the surrounding villagers with minor medical treatments like vaccinations, scraps and bruises to children, colds and fevers, examination for pregnant women and wellness of babies. This Missionary was an Angel of Mercy that her family, the children she helped and the villagers will truly miss.
