Hannah Marjay Harris Kollie was the daughter of the late Daniel B and Deyonkon Harris of Grand Bassa and Bong Counties Liberia. She was raised in Monrovia Liberia until she fled to Ghana during the Liberian Civil War. She left her daughter to be raised by her parents. After many setbacks in her attempts for rescue, she met Dorbor and his daughter and on June 16th 2006, they were married. Through the encouragement of her husband and her brother in law Dorbor K Marvie Sr she was accepted for the Refugee Resettlement Program to travel to the United States, and live in Boise Idaho. She soon sent for her daughter Jannie Harris where they were reunited after many years. Dorbor and his daughter followed a few years later.
She was called home to be with the Lord on April 19th, 2021 in Boise ID. She is survived by her daughter Jannie Harris, grandson (Montee), step daughter Weedor Kollie, Husband Dorbor Reed Kollie and son in law Jason Bernier of Boise Idaho. Her older sister Sara Harris Brooks of Charlotte North Carolina, brothers and sisters Daniel B Harris Jr, Bannie Harris, Arthur Harris, Carr Harris and Naomi Harris of Monrovia Liberia, and a host of cousins, nieces, nephews and great friends turned sisters in and around the US.
From 2006 to present day, Hannah was an active member of Agape Christian Worship center, where she served on the Trustee board. Hannah was also and a part of Agape women’s group, and a member of the Liberian United association of Idaho, where she served as the Vice President for a time.
For the last 13 years, Hannah worked as a CNA/Psych tech/Home health aide/rehab aide in and around the Treasure Valley. She also motivated her daughter to join the medical care field and her dream was for her daughter to become a nurse. If you ever had the chance to meet Hannah, you know all she truly wanted to do was help and put a smile on everyone's face. She was honest and trustworthy and she was the one who took care of everyone and was always there to help. Her love for her daughter and grandson kept her going, and everyone knows how much Montee loved his boo boo. She was a perfect picture of love, grace, elegance, peace, beauty, and forgiveness. Hannah was a mother, grandmother, sister, wife and a friend. You may not be here with us physically anymore but in my heart, you still live. God must have needed you home now for something important because you left us way too soon. He called you home so young but it gives me peace to know that you're not in pain anymore. I know you will watch over me and Montee. I'll cherish every moment of our last week together mom, and I'm so happy that we had the chance to tell each other "I Love You" before you had to go.
