Madam Yah (Mama) Nenyeah Dahn Tongoh was born on January 1, 1948 to Saye and Kou Nenyeah in Gban, Nimba County, Republic of Liberia. She has 3 living siblings. Mama married the love of her life, Mr. Lakpor Cooper Dahn, at a young age, and together they had 11 children: First son, Saye (deceased at birth); Edith Dahn Wuo (George) of Defiance, Ohio; Tete Dahn (decease during Liberian civil war); Martin Dahn (Kebeh) of Columbus, Ohio; Kamah Dahn (died of Ebola); Nohn Dahn Wheagar (Alvin) of Iowa; Nelson Dahn (Cecelia) of Australia; Koko Dahn Samuka (Peter) of Ohio; Paye Anthony Dahn (deceased); Fannie Dahn Dorbor (James) of Ohio; Kou Pinkay Dahn of Ohio; George Dahn, oldest son of Lakpor Dahn of Liberia was nurtured and loved by Mama after his mother deceased.

Mama was highly respected and loved by her children and grandchildren. She has 32 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren ranging from ages 1 to 35 years. They live in Australia, Liberia, and the United States. Mama, we thank you for loving, and teaching us the love of God. Life will never be the same without you. We will love and miss you always. Mama taught both her children and grandchildren to love the LORD, as well as the value of working hard with honesty and integrity. She showed her true love for the LORD through her Christian values and actions towards all of humanity. She was there to give a helping hand to anyone who was in need and she started a local organization in her hometown, where she taught local women to work with their hands and better themselves in earning income to support their families. Many of these women learned how to earn and save to build their own homes.

Mama came to the United States in 2004 and has traveled back and forth to Liberia since then. While in America, she attended the Trinity United Methodist Church in Defiance, Ohio, where she became part of the Church Family there. Her home church in Liberia was Liberty Christian Church, in Ganta, Liberia, West Africa.

Yah (Mama) Nenyeah Dahn Tongoh, passed away on Friday, May 29, 2020 at the ProMedica Hospital in Defiance, Ohio from complications of pulmonary fibrosis. She leaves to cherish her memories, all her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, three siblings, nephews, nieces, a host of many relatives, friends, and well-wishers. May her soul rest in eternal peace and may perpetual light shine on her.
