Stained-glass window will honor school library aide

Andy Hall:

One year ago today, as she walked across Cherokee Drive to her job, school library assistant Becky Sue Buchmann was killed by a motorist dropping off his son at Cherokee Middle School.

Buchmann, 48, parked across the street from the Near West Side school on Cherokee Drive -- a common practice for staff at the school -- and was hit as she walked across to the school mid-block.

Since then, students and staff have raised thousands of dollars to build a stained glass window in her honor, but the traffic patterns outside the school remain unchanged.
