PHOENIX, AZ. June 5, 2019.
It is with deep sorrow and pain that we inform you about the death of our beloved DLA Founder, Mother, Grandmother, Community Leader, Mentor and Friend Mrs. Christine French. Christine passed away at home on Monday, June 3rd 2019. She is survived by her husband Phil French and their two daughters Paula and Claire and 5 grandchildren.

None of us were expecting the sudden passing of our Angel Christine and while we are shocked and filled with grief, we know that Christine would want us to celebrate her life and legacy instead of mourning her death.

DLA and the Arizona Community have lost a compassionate visionary and courageous activist that fought every day for Equity, Inclusiveness and Justice and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Christine have lost a dear friend, inspiring mentor, a confidant, transformational leader and trusted advisor.

No words can adequately express our sadness at Christine’s sudden passing or our gratitude for the opportunity to work alongside her in this fight for Equity. We will honor her memory by re-dedicating ourselves to continuing this great fight and serving as a beacon of light and a voice for those who feel like they have no voice. DLA is her Legacy and we will uphold it through our vital work and actions. Rest Easy our Good and Faithful Servant for your work here is done.
