CHICAGO (SCS) — A special birthday celebration was held for a fixture in Chicago’s Chatham community.
Family, friends and local leaders gathered at Josephine’s Southern Cooking to honor the restaurant’s namesake, Mother Josephone Wade, on her 80th birthday.
The all-day party started with brunch and continued into the evening with music and, of course, lots of food.
Wade said his thanks go to God.
She opened the restaurant over 30 years ago and still provides work for people in the neighborhood and meals for those in need.
