Statement from Mayor Kasim Reed on the Passing of Lillian Miles Lewis, wife of Congressman John Lewis
On behalf of the people of the City of Atlanta, I extend my deepest condolences to the Lewis and Miles families on the passing of Lillian Miles Lewis. Mrs. Lewis was active in social justice movements across the country and was an articulate ambassador on behalf of her adopted home city of Atlanta. She was a strong and steadfast supporter of her husband, whom she married in 1968 at Ebenezer Baptist Church. She will be missed.
