Sisters of Charity Health System mourns passing of Congressman Louis Stokes

The Sisters of Charity Health System is deeply saddened by the passing of former Congressman Louis Stokes on August 18 at the age of 90. We extend our sympathies to the Stokes family and the many lives touched by the Congressman. During his storied career, Congressman Stokes was a staunch advocate for social and economic justice, education, health care and other causes that impacted the lives of many. Both on a national level and around Cleveland, he was a transformational leader who helped create needed and enduring social change. As we remember Congressman Stokes, we celebrate a life lived serving with compassion, courage and collaboration, and acting as a powerful voice for the less fortunate and everyone in Ohio. [More]
