OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Funeral services are set for a former Oklahoma City legislator who died after a long battle with cancer.

House officials say Odilia Dank died Saturday at an Oklahoma City hospital. She was 74.

A funeral mass will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday at Christ the King Catholic Church in Oklahoma City.

A longtime school teacher and counselor, Dank represented House District 85 in north Oklahoma City from 1994 until she was term limited in 2006. Her husband, David Dank, succeeded her in the House and currently holds the post.

A Republican, Odilia Dank served in the minority in the House until her final term after Republicans took control in 2004. She was the first Republican to serve as chairman of the House Education Committee.
