Hahn Reappoints Wilmington Resident to Los Angeles Harbor Area Cemetery District

Los Angeles, CA — Today, Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn reappointed Loraine “Lorie” Geluz to the Los Angeles Harbor Area Cemetery District. The District is entrusted with operating and preserving the Historic Wilmington Cemetery, which was built by Phineas Banning in 1857. Geluz was first made a trustee in 2017.

“I know that maintaining this special site is a job that Lorie takes very seriously. This is a sacred place for families and a part of Wilmington’s heritage. I’m thankful for her deep commitment to protecting and promoting it,” said Hahn.

Geluz is a lifelong native of Wilmington, and has several relatives buried at the Historic Wilmington Cemetery. During her time as trustee, she has helped bring community awareness to the cemetery through public events held on site.

“My favorite saying is ‘Sí Se Puede’ which means Yes We Can,” said Geluz. “I hope to be able to continue to serve as a Trustee with the cemetery to continue to bring awareness on the beautiful cemetery we have in our community.”
