TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- The Florida Senate observed a moment of
silence after learning of the death of former colleague Patsy Kurth.
The 70-year-old former state senator from Malabar had died earlier Wednesday. She had suffered a debilitating stroke five years ago.
Kurth served as a Democrat from 1992 to 2000. A memorial service
will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday at First United Methodist Church in Melbourne.
