It is with great sadness that I have to inform you of the passing of a long time union member & good friend, Eunice Hall. She was a formidable woman & Wardrobe worker for Local 896 for many years. Her presence will be missed greatly. If you wish to pay your respects, the information is as follows:
Visitation will be this Friday the 6th at Noon at Forest Park on Lawndale.
