On behalf of everyone at Blog for Democracy, we extend our deepest sympathies to Congressman John Lewis, and the family and friends of his wife, Lillian Miles Lewis, who passed away at the age of 73.
You can read more from the AJC:
Lillian Miles Lewis, U.S. Rep. John Lewis’ wife, friend and political adviser, died Monday at Emory University Hospital. She was 73.
Close friend Xernona Clayton said Lillian Lewis had been ill for an extended period of time but encouraged her husband to continue with his career.
“She’d kind of get on him about telling people she was sick,” Clayton said. “She didn’t want that to be the focus. She wanted him to do his work.”
