A giant has fallen
Mrs. Jimmie Farris has left us at the age of 81.
She had been in declining health over the last few years, but she was as much a Democratic powerhouse as her late husband, Bill or her son, John, to which they would both attest.
Ms. Jimmie was one of the nicest people one could ever meet, but that belied a toughness that got a great deal done for this city and this region. She will be missed greatly, and our thoughts and prayers go out to John, Jim, and the rest of her family.
