Funeral arrangements for Lillian Miles Lewis announced

As we previously reported, Lillian Miles Lewis, the wife Congressman John Lewis, D-Atlanta, died on Monday.

The Congressman has spent the past several days mourning his wife's passing and was understandably absent during a particularly busy week in Washington D.C., one marked by both a contentious vote on the fiscal cliff bill and a new Congress taking office.

Brenda Jones, Rep. Lewis' communications director, offered funeral details in an email this morning, saying that:

The services for Mrs. Lillian Miles Lewis, wife of U.S. Rep. John Lewis, will be held at 11:00 AM on Monday January 7, 2013, in Ebenezer Baptist Church, 407 Auburn Avenue in Atlanta 30312.

Rep. Lewis and his wife were married there 44 years ago.

Condolences may be expressed in any form an individual may desire.

Some condolence suggestions include flowers, which may be sent to the Willie A. Watkins Funeral Home or directly to the Ebenezer Baptist Church after Sunday. Donations to the American Kidney Fund can be made on behalf of Mrs. Lewis, while written condolences may be sent to Rep. John Lewis and his son John Miles Lewis at 2015 Wallace Road, Atlanta, Georgia 30331.
