Mary Lundby, the Republican leader of the Iowa Senate is losing her battle with cervical cancer.
She is an uncommon Republican: She's a working-class Iowan with a union background who stands up for gay rights and the environment, yet she is a devout Catholic who is opposed to abortion and inefficient government.

A nonconformist, Lundby once wrote a resolution honoring everyone who had ever lived in Iowa, visited Iowa or flew over Iowa.

It was a dig at fellow lawmakers' fawning and self-congratulations.
