Representative DeBerry’s proposals worked on behalf of the poor, the young and the old. She worked to keep students out of debt by restricting credit card companies from soliciting on college and university campuses.  Rep. DeBerry’s dedication to Memphis ran deep.

Louis DeBerry passed away on Sunday, July 28, 2013 from pancreatic cancer. Though she was in chemotherapy and treatments for her illness, DeBerry continued to serve in the Legislature.
