Farewell Ms. Lewis

It is only fitting that one of the renewed posts pay homage to Ms. Fannie Mae Lewis, an icon in Cleveland politics, who went home to glory Monday, August 11th. Ms. Lewis was small in stature but monumental in conviction and fight for the little people.
As the Council representative to Cleveland's Ward 7 for the past 28 years, Ms. Lewis stood for those who couldn't speak for themselves. She gave a voice to the downtrodden, the small businessman, the single mother and the working poor. With a sharp tongue and strong faith in God Ms. Lewis served the people of her community.
Monday the airwaves in Cleveland were littered with praise for the hard work she did and the void her passing would have on the community.
May she now find peace and rest at the side of Her Savior! God Bless you Ms. Lewis and we will miss you!

  1. Lewis will be missed. Someone should put together a book w/some of her searing quips. She could tell you off in that old-fashiioned, no profanity way! I used to live in her Ward. Nice to have Fannie standing up for you. Gonna miss her fiestiness (sp).
