This past Sunday, the city of Philadelphia lost a true legend. Lana Felton-Ghee passed away at the age of 66 from complications of Lou Gehrig’s disease. It was always said of the Philly pioneer that “if you want it done right, let Lana do it.” And boy, did she do it well! Born in North Philadelphia and living in Overbrook for quite some time, Lana dedicated her life to our great city. She worked as deputy city representative, ran her own public relations business, served as vice president of government affairs for Health Partners, and even made history in 1999 when she became one of the first African American women to run a successful mayoral campaign as campaign manager for John Street. A former student of Germantown High School and graduate of Temple University, Lana never looked back on her city. We truly thank her for unwavering service to our community and know that she will be greatly missed.
Services are being held 11am Monday at Deliverance Evangelistic Church located at 2001 W. Lehigh Avenue Phila., PA 19132
