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 (https://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.
