Iowa lawmakers to attend funeral for Mary Lundby

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Iowa lawmakers won't take much action Wednesday so legislators can attend the funeral of Mary Lundby, a former state lawmaker from suburban Cedar Rapids.

Lundby died Saturday morning after a battle with cancer. She was 60.

Lundby, a Marion Republican, retired from the Senate in 2008 after 22 years in the Legislature. She was planning a run for a seat on the Linn County Board of Supervisors when she announced that her cancer had returned and she would not make the race.

Her funeral is scheduled for 1 p.m. Wednesday in Marion.

An aide to Senate Majority Leader Mike Gronstal, D-Council Bluffs, says Senate subcommittees are scheduled to meet early in the day, otherwise the calendar is cleared.
