Funeral services were held for Congresswoman Louise Slaughter in Rochester Friday morning. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton shared some of her fondest memories of Mrs. Slaughter, including back in 1998 when they attended the 150th anniversary of the Seneca Falls Women’s Convention on a hot July’s summer day.
House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said Slaughter’s family was her top priority.
Congressman John Lewis, of Georgia, remembered his friend.
Slaughter passed away last Friday in Washington D.C. after suffering a fall in her home. She was 88 years old.
