Sheila Chaffee, RIP

Postby Stu Levitan » Thu May 30, 2013 12:20 pm

Former Ald. Sheila Chaffee, one of the liberal stalwarts on the Council in the late 70s and early 80s, passed away this morning after a long illness. She was one of those people who raised the level of humanity, decency and integrity of any room she entered. May her memory be for a blessing.

She was always so welcoming and supportive when I knocked on her door to campaign. I enjoyed my visits to her house and felt a boost when I left. Shelia had some tough times as a woman politician when being an elected woman was still usual. But she did everything she could to mentor other woman and encourage them to run.

I'll miss her.
