Channel 2 Action News has learned Evelyn Lowery is going home.

The condition of Joseph Lowery’s wife remains critical since she suffered a stroke one week ago, but her family thought she’d be more comfortable at home.

Channel 2’s Carol Sbarge spoke to Elisabeth Omilami, the executive director of Hosea Feed the Hungry and Homeless, about the impact Evelyn Lowery has made on her life.

Omilami, daughter of civil rights activist Hosea Williams, said Lowery’s family is thankful to the public for their thoughts and prayers.

The family said the massive stroke caused irreversible damage to 85-year-old Evelyn Lowery.
