Mayor Rahm Emanuel joins all Chicagoans in mourning last night’s passing of Margaret Corbett Daley, the wife of Mayor Richard M. Daley. In a statement, Mayor Emanuel remembered Mrs. Daley’s shining spirit and dignity, her commitment to the city’s arts and culture, her devotion to improving the lives of the city’s young people, and her courageous battle with cancer. Emanuel sent the sincere wishes of all Chicagoans to Mayor Daley, Nora, Patrick, Lally and the rest of the Daley family.
“Chicago has lost a warm and gracious First Lady who contributed immeasurably to our city,” said Emanuel. “While Mayor Daley served as the head of this city, Maggie was its heart.”
“Just as Maggie will remain a constant presence in their lives,” said the Mayor, “she will remain a constant presence in our city. Like Chicagoans everywhere, Amy and I will always hold her in our hearts.”
Arrangements are being prepared by the City to remember Mrs. Daley and mark this tremendous loss to the Daley family and the City of Chicago.
