[Dyishia Niema Chaney]
It is with a heavy heart that I must share some very sad news with you. This afternoon, shortly before my 2:00 choir rehearsal, I was told that a former Morgan State University Choir member Dyishia Chaney succumbed to her ongoing illness of Lupus. Dyishia was a transfer student from Baltimore City Community College, matriculating to Morgan in 2010, majoring in Music. She last sang in the choir during 2010 Christmas concert. Her illness did allow for her return during the following semesters. This evening, February 3, 2012, a viewing was held at Howell Funeral Home, 4600 Liberty Heights Ave. 21207 from 3:00-7:00 PM. I spent time with the family during the viewing period and gave condolences from the University and choir. Please see attached the program provided by the family for those in attendance. Again, our prayers go out to the Chaney family.
