LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A well-known community activist was laid to rest Saturday. 

A family spokesperson says Angela Newby-Bouggess died on March 14 from medical problems. She was 61 years old.

Her son, Michael Newby, was shot and killed by a former LMPD Officer in January of 2004 after an undercover drug deal went wrong.

Newby-Bouggess continued her anti-violence crusade until January of this year by working with the "Hood 2 Hood" program.
