WHITE PLAINS — Westchester leaders celebrated the life of Lois Bronz, former chair of the board of legislators on Monday.

“Lois understood everything, and at the bottom of everything was her capacity to love and to learn and to give,” Sen. Andrea Stewart-Cousins said. “That's who Lois was.”

Bronz was the first woman and African-American elected chair of the Westchester County Board of Legislators.

One of Bronz’s children, Fran, accepted a memorial resolution in honor of her mother.

“Because there aren't enough words to really express how deeply and grateful myself and my family feels towards all of you who help to make my mom’s life a better life, and a more enriched life,” Fran said.

On Feb. 12, Bronz died at the age of 90.
