Unhappy Soror Julia Carson passes away

Indiana congresswoman dies

INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana (AP) -- Rep. Julia Carson, the first black and first woman to represent Indianapolis in Congress, died Saturday, a family spokeswoman said. She was 69.
Carson died of lung cancer, spokeswoman Vanessa Summer said.
Carson announced last month that she was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer and that she would not run next year for a seventh term representing Indiana's 7th District.
She had not been in Washington since September, when she was hospitalized with a leg infection.
She had said that she expected to return to Washington after recuperating, but a doctor then diagnosed that her lung cancer, which had been in remission, was back.

Although we knew she had lung cancer her death was really sudden. It was announced that she had lung cancer. She was one of the only blacks in Indianapolis and she will be missed.
