Edna White Summers.

* Edna White Summers, a community activist and lifelong Evanston resident, died of heart failure on May 21. Summers, 81, helped lead a campaign to desegregate Evanston's public schools in the 1960s. She later was elected the city's 5th Ward alderman, a position she held for 13 years before being elected Evanston Township Supervisor. "Edna was a great and generous person who had a lot of compassion," said Evanston City Clerk Mary P. Morris. She is survived by two sons and a daughter.
