Dr. Doris Yaa Dartey was very kind and generous to me. I loved her like my own grandmother. She always called me her granddaughter which made me very happy and I’m very sad and heartbrok

en she’s left. I’m very sad I couldn’t get to meet her like I planned. I extend my deepest sympathies to you and your family. May the soul of your mother/grandma be at peace with our Heavenly Father.

Dear Dr. D, as I affectionately called you. I admired you from afar and wondered who you were. We got much closer when you put together the PIAC Communications Strategy, which developed in

to a short but very close friendship. More so when we realised we both lived in Agbogba. Thanks for the long conversations on all subjects, the laughter and friendship. You will forever be missed. Rest peacefully in the bosom of the Lord🙏🏿

You were an example and mentor to some some of us. My encounter with you somewhere in 2011 became a turning point and that's what has brought me this far. Thank you Dr.

I knew you for a little over 4 years, yet your impact on my life was massive. Whenever I called your response of 'Hello my dear' or Yes baby girl' always put a smile on my face even in m

y worst moments. You touched my life and I will always appreciate your honesty! Who will edit my writing now? You will be missed dearly, but we have faith that you are at peace and smiling down at us with that infectious smile of yours from heaven. Fare thee well Dr D!

My dear sister Yaa Doris, I heard your voice just a few days prior to being informed of your transition.  I had told myself that I would send you a quick note to say hello and  tell you th

at I missed you and still wanted to visit you in Ghana, soon.  Now, I must reconcile with the fact that you can no longer be there to greet me with that big beautiful smile, infectious laugh, warm embrace, and aroma of FuFu with peanut butter soup that I grew accustomed to during our seasons at Ohio U. The image still is so vivid in my mind. I remember how proud and honored I felt when you asked me to help decorate your apartment and standby for the surprise welcome of Darkoa and Kwaku as they arrived in Athens for the first time. They were reflections of all that I loved about you. I was their brand new American uncle and no one could tell me otherwise. LOL. Thank you for the way you nourished my spirit. Oh, and I promise to do a better job at staying connected to them. :-) Writing this has been a bit difficult but I am forever grateful for having shared time and space with you in this life. Perhaps we will meet again when I, too, join the ancestors.  Until then, I wil

My Beloved Yaa! So long the letter... My heart has resisted writing this...as it cannot accept that you have gone! My ears long for the sound of your laughter, my eyes seek the warmth of y

our smile... and my heart longs for more of our long long girlfriend conversations - complete with the contemplation serious world issues, recipes, hair, fabulous stories, and light-hearted bantering. I remember you often told people we were sisters playing on the beach when the White men came to steal Africans and I got caught because I was so nosey. You furthered the story by explaining that you had come to Athens, OH to "collect me and return me to Ghana." We laughed and laughed in part because it was a great story, also because oddly there were those who did not understand the history of the slave trade and actually believed you...but our laughter also confirmed and bore testimony of our collective acknowledgment of the sister bond that we shared - a true gift from God. Yaa, through our sisterhood I learned so much about me, about my role as an African American woman who had been blessed to travel back "home" with my sister. My visit to Ghana was life changing. You were like t

Dr. Doris Dartey was my sister and a dear friend. I initially met her when I joined Christ International Community Church (formally African Community Church) in Columbus, Ohio. We hit it of

f right away and it felt like I had known her my entire life. When she met my family, we realized she was kin to my brother in-law. She got to know my entire family and I got to know hers and the relationship blossomed. We always had fun together. There was laughter, love, and joy wherever Doris was present. She was about loving God and people. She was passionate about justice and equality, and treating others the way we want to be treated. She was there during good times and during the difficult times. She had a presence that brought peace. I loved Doris, her departure was a shock, I am so broken hearted. My consolation is that she is now at rest, no longer in pain and with her Heavenly Father. I love you so much Doris, but God loves you most. Rest my dear sister, rest. Till we meet again at the saviors side.

Dr. Doris Dartey, yours was a life well lived. I'll always remember you as the woman Darkoa wanted me to meet and talk to career-wise... but that couldn't happen. It's refreshing to still k

now that your legacy lives on through your rich pieces of work. May your strong and beautiful soul rest in peace. My deepest condolences to the entire family.

I have never met such a poised and eloquent lady in my life. With so many achievements under her belt she was never one to look down on anyone. I always admired her and her coy smiles. Throu

gh her battle she never showed weakness. She wasn’t defined by her pain. Such a remarkable woman. I pray God keeps you in his bosom of love. You will be forever missed ❤️

Mum, That's how you insisted I call you, and you didnt miss any opportunity of making everyone know that I was your son; and we only met in a lecture room and from our first interactions t

old me how much potential I have. I have never looked down since then. That's who you are, you instill hope, courage, wisdom, knowledge, sustainance and encouragement. As loosing you has become inevitable my prayer is for your legacy to flourish, your loved ones be comforted in the Lord and God to have mercy on you, forgive your iniquities and keep your sweet soul safe. May you rest in peace in the bosom of the Lord.

I am honoured and blessed to have known Dr. Doris Yaa Dartey. She was truly a blessing in my life and I will miss her dearly. Remembering her wonderful and gentle soul will forever remain in

my heart. I will never forget her kindness and uprightness. “A good heart has stopped beating, a good soul ascended to heaven. We part with our beloved mother in pain”. May God give her eternal rest and the family the strength to bear the great pain.
