The funeral for former First Lady of Chicago, Maggie Daley, was held on Monday. Mourners lined up to attend, including top politicians and Presidential First Lady Michelle Obama. It was reported that Mrs. Obama kept a low profile, saying she did not want to overshadow the families service.
Former Mayor, Richard Daley, received condolences from current Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Vice President Joe Biden, and other top figures who attended. It was a sad day for the City Of Chicago, losing a long-time supporter of many important causes including “After School Matters”.
Maggie Daley passed away after her long nine-year battle with breast cancer at the age of 68-years-old.
