Marthia Linee Rieves-Bey found her peace on July 1, 2021 at the age of 46.
Marthia was born in Youngstown, Ohio on July 22, 1974 to the late Liana & Ernest Rieves-Bey. She grew up in Cleveland, Ohio with her family and graduated from John Adams High School in 1992. She loved music and poetry. She was a strong, free spirited woman who touched the minds and hearts of those who loved her. Where there was darkness, she brought love, color, and light. She accepted people for who they were and allowed them to speak their truth. She spent her life encouraging others to accept and love themselves. She was a scholar in her own right and focused on matters that were important to her such as family, education, independence, freedom of self-expression and spirituality.
Marthia will be deeply missed by her children: Trevell Rieves-Bey, Catera Davis, and Tinashé Rieves-Bey; her grandson: Santanah Bey; her siblings: Renard Rieves, Renita Rieves-Clark, Rhonda Rieves-Bey, Marcia Burston, Eric Williams, and Anita Lillard.
