MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Florence Lombardi Merow, a former state Delegate and former Morgantown mayor, has died. She was 91.
Hastings Funeral Home in Morgantown says Merow died Saturday at her home.
She also was a former Morgantown City Council member and a Monongalia County commissioner.
Former City Council member Frank Scafella tells The Dominion Post (http://bit.ly/1cVBXar ) that Merow was ahead of her time in many ways.
Scafella says Merow knew the Monongahela River was a valuable asset in the 1980s but few shared her vision. He says a riverfront design that she presented then is strikingly similar to today's riverfront.
Funeral arrangements are incomplete.
