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.
