Friends and family said goodbye Saturday to a legendary Chicago restaurateur.

The funeral for Edna Stewart took place at United Baptist Church on West Roosevelt.

Stewart died June 11 from cancer. She was the namesake and owner of 'Edna's,' a popular West Side restaurant.

The restaurant was known for its soul food. The business was also a meeting place for civil rights leaders, including Dr. Martin Luther King.

Edna Stewart was 72 years old.
