January 8, 1929. – December 1, 2009
Lela stood tall among the leaders ie the first human development project, 5th City, Chicago. Here is her funeral service with photos.
Our families worked together in 5th City in the late 60’s/early 70’s on many programs. Lela was such an amazing spirit woman and implemented many programs that had a positive impact on the quality of life in 5th City. She will be truly missed. Take care,
