Oct 8, 2009: Marybell Brazile Bakewell, Matriarch of the Bakewell Family Succumbs
By Brandon I. Brooks (Managing Editor)
Published October 8, 2009

Marybell Bakewell was born April 10, 1925 and passed away in her sleep October 7, 2009 at Arcadia Methodist Hospital. Mrs. Bakewell, the Mother of Los Angeles Sentinel Publisher, Danny J. Bakewell, Sr. and Los Angeles Urban League Chief Neighborhood Officer, Pamela A. Bakewell, as well as the Grandmother of Los Angeles Sentinel Executive Editor, Danny J. Bakewell, Jr., suffered a massive stroke on Saturday, October 4, 2009 and never recovered. ‘Mamie’, as she was affectionately known by her entire family was always the life of the party. She preached ‘Family First’ and anyone who knew her immediately fell in love with her glowing personality. She was full of life, love, laughter and glamour. She was the family matriarch.

Marybell Bakewell was a native of New Orleans and lived there 79 of her 84 years of life, only leaving her beloved city after it was completely devastated by Hurricane Katrina. While living in New Orleans she was a life member of St. Peter Claver Catholic Church, who also had a deep rooted family connection to the Sisters of The Holy Family. Mrs. Bakewell was a part of 4 generations of women who attended St. Mary
