Cedella Marley Booker has joined her son sitting on the left hand of Jah, believing the reggae prophet had been killed by the forces of darkness.
Booker, 82, mother of global icon Bob Marley, died Tuesday night in her South Florida home after a long illness.
She was surrounded by loved ones inside her South Miami-Dade home and was “‘very happy and very peaceful”, said daughter-in-law Sharien Booker said.
“Her vision was always to bring people together. She was a very loving person, and we know she’s happy.”
Grandson, Ky-Mani told The Miami Herald she had always been a “caring and supporting person in my life. She was always there to help me even when I didn’t ask for help, she knew I needed help. She had that instinct to know when things were wrong and had the courage to fix it.”
“Mrs Booker was the matriarch of a movement so powerful that the mystical qualities of the Marley musical legacy remain strong and potent,” said Jamaican Information Minister Olivia Grange.
“She was a star in her own right,” Jamaican Prime Minister Bruce Golding said. “Her life was one of hardship, struggle and eventual fulfilment, and through it all, she exuded hope, strength and confidence.”
