Slain Chicago Police Officer’s Mother, Elizabeth French on WGN Radio


Elizabeth French

Not sure that I often fumble for words on the radio, but speaking HERE on WGN Radio with the mother of murdered Chicago police officer Ella French wasn’t easy for me…..Of course, imagine how she feels every day, 24/7 and I ask Elizabeth French simply how she is.

Ella was a huge dog lover, and Ms. French takes the opportunity to say “thank you” for donations in Ella’s name that been made to animal shelters and rescues all over the nation. She fosters through Small Paws Animal Rescue Inc. So, that organization is special to her, but then she adds any rescue or shelter you care simply make a donation, large or small, in Ella’s name. It’s a way she would appreciate to honor Ella.

Ella also loved children, so supporting children’s charities such as St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital is another consideration.

Elizabeth says she’s received cards from all over America; people should never underestimate the power of support, “I doesn’t take away the hurt but makes me so proud my daughter that’s been able to impact people.”
