Iowa Senator Mary Lundby has died. She had been battling cervical cancer for the past several years. Over the holidays, she said good-bye to family and friends. I always enjoyed talking with her at the Iowa Statehouse. She was funny, passionate and sarcastic, three traits I can relate to.
She left the senate after her leadership position ended to go back to Linn County to run for a board of supervisors position. But her cancer prevented her from doing so. Her dedication, humor and whistle will be deeply missed.
