"Many of you have already heard that our friend Joanne Leavitt passed away on December 22, 2019," writes Louise Jaffe, SMC trustee. "I want to make sure you have the opportunity to join in fellowship as we say goodbye to our friend."
"Whether you knew her through her work in the League of Women Voters, PTA, Virginia Avenue Park Advisory Committee, Early Childhood Education Task Force, Housing Commission, Santa Monica-Malibu Education Foundation, election reform ... or whether you knew her because you met her over tea one day, we welcome you to join us in honoring and remembering her for making this world a better place."
From the League of Women Voters of Santa Monica.
