Iola James Scholarship Fund

In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Iola James Memorial Fund.

All donations will be distributed to the organizations that she devoted many years of leadership, love and hard work to

* National Council of Negro Women (Northern CAL Region),
* Delta Sigma Theta, Inc. (Berkeley Bay Area Alumni Chapter) and
* UC Retirees Association at Berkeley.

Please extend her good works at this time and support local college-bound youth.

Thank you!
