The Death of Charnice Milton

I am saddened by the news of the untimely passing of Charnice A. Milton. This is a great loss to Ward 7 as Charnice was not only a resident, but was actively involved with her community through her work as a journalist.

Charnice grew up in the Fairfax Village neighborhood and most recently lived in the Ft. Davis community. She attended Anne Beers Elementary and went on to accomplish many goals in her 27 years. Despite some challenges, Charnice received a full scholarship to attend Ball State University. She also received her Master’s from Syracuse University. She was an extraordinary young woman that had a passion for issues that affected not only Ward 7, but every community that lies East of the Anacostia River.

Her work as a reporter for the East of the River Magazine was stellar as she kept readers informed and interested in learning more about what she covered. Regularly covering community meetings, she touched the lives of many as she become familiar with many ANC commissioners, civic association leaders and residents.

My prayers are with her mother, Francis Milton and her entire family. Charnice will be greatly missed.

Yvette Alexander is the Councilmember for Ward 7. Charnice was her constituent.
