It is with sadness that we must announce the passing of Lucille “Lu” Walls.

It is with sadness that we must announce the passing of Lucille “Lu” Walls. Lu was the Executive Director of the Alliance of People with disAbilities from March 2009 until her retirement in May 2014. In those five years, Lu was instrumental in advocating for the rights of individuals with disabilities. She truly lived her life in pursuit of the Alliance’s mission of people with disabilities advocating for equality and choice. Her vision increased outreach to generally underserved populations and created new programs to serve Alliance consumers. Lu will be missed by all.

Funeral rite at 3:30 PM followed by a reception with heavy refreshments at 4:15 PM in the school cafeteria.
