Passing of Jody Nathanson, LLL Leader for 56 years. In September 1962, Jody was the first LLL Leader in the entire state of California to be formally accredited through correspondence with LLLI. This was at a time when nursing mothers started support groups in Los Angeles County, Orange County, and the San Francisco area. By 1964 more women helped others, especially LLL Leader Kittie Frantz and mothers from San Fernando Valley. In later years, LLL California became two Areas: Northern California and Southern California.
