[ARCHIVED] Mayor W Howard Myers Issues Statement on Passing of Former First Lady Nancy Reagan

Mayor W Howard Myers comments: It is with great sadness to hear of the loss of Former First Lady Nancy Reagan.

It is my understanding that her Mother Ms. Edith Luckett Davis was born here in the great City of Petersburg and was a film and Broadway stage actress in the 1910s and 1920s.

Born in Manhatten, New York Anne Frances Robbins (Nancy Reagan) on July 6, 1921, the legacy of Petersburg was an influence in her life. Our hearts go out to the family during these times of sorrow.
