Senator Dick Durbin Statement on the Passing of Maggie Daley

[WASHINGTON, D.C.] – U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) released the following statement after the death of Maggie Daley:


Chicago and Illinois have lost a great and caring woman. Those of us whose lives were touched by her warm smile and inner strength will dearly miss Maggie Daley.


“Loretta and I have lost a dear friend but feel blessed to have traveled part of our life's journey with her and Rich. We remember last St. Patrick's Day at Old St. Pat’s when Maggie’s struggles were quickly forgotten as her grandkids, dressed in their finest green, scrambled in the church pew to see the Shannon Rovers piping up the center aisle. She and Rich were beaming with the joy that loving parents and grandparents live for.


“Our thoughts and prayers go out to Rich, the Daley family and the many who will join us in mourning Maggie's passing.”
