GDABVI was saddened to learn of the passing of Mrs. Lila Cabbil, a long-time Occupational Therapist for blind and visually impaired children. Lila worked at GDABVI and its predecessors — the Detroit Society for the Blind and the Upshaw Institute — from 1968-2003. Mrs. Cabbil departed on February 23, 2019 in Detroit, Michigan; and homegoing services were held on March 9, 2019 in Warren, Michigan. GDABVI staff recalled Lila’s strong contributions to the field of blind services and parental education, and her determined efforts to improve the life skills and employment opportunities of visually impaired youth. We provide here a copy of GDABVI’s Lila Cabbil Tribute Statement. Thank you.
