Sadly, we have now learned that her sister has passed.

During an interview with The Grio, Maxine Waters said:

It is one of the most painful things that I’ve ever had to experience in my life. She has suffered. And so we are going through a very difficult time. It was not easy, but in many ways, I’m so glad she’s out of pain.

Rep. Waters did not mention her sister by name, but please keep her and her family uplifted in prayer during this difficult time.
