DETROIT (WWJ) – Visitation Friday for the co-founder of Focus Hope, Eleanor Josaitis at the Church of the Madonna on Detroit’s West Side.

“She was a good neighbor, she was a good person …she did so much for the, for the  city .  She just gave from the heart,” said a neighbor.

Even in death Josaitis continues to inspire, Deirdre Cooley says that she moved to Detroit after first settling in the suburbs, upon her arrival from the East Coast where she grew up.

It was Josaitis and Focus: HOPE that drew Cooley to her new home.

“The changes that she made in the city are in credible and her capacity to change and give to the city is incredible,” Cooley said. “Some of her work has laid the ground work for all of the change that has been able to be made in this city.”

The funeral for Josaitis will be held Saturday at 1 p.m. at the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament on Woodward Avenue in Detroit.
