(Harrisburg) -- Pennsylvania's lieutenant governor has lost her battle with cancer. Catherine Baker Knoll died at 6 p.m. today at National Rehabilitation Hospital in Washington, D.C. She was 78.

Governor Rendell says Knoll was surrounded by her family at the time of her death. Knoll was diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer in July. She had undergone radiation and chemotherapy treatments. Knoll was sworn in on January 21, 2003, as Pennsylvania's 30th lieutenant governor -- and the first woman to be elected to the post.

Eternal rest grant unto her Oh Lord and may the perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul - and all the souls of the faithfully departed - through the mercy of God, rest in piece.

I can't say I'm sad -

Because you didn't know her, or because she was a Democrat? :o

Because you didn't know her, or because she was a Democrat? :oBecause I know her record. I won't shed a tear when Spector dies either.

I don't know what Phil Spector has to do with this. There is a Pennsylvania politician named Arlen Specter. :)
