Rich Funke, former News10NBC anchor and current candidate for State Senate in the 55th district, tells us his mother has passed away at the age of 94.
On Funke's Facebook campaign page he said, "My heart mourns today for the passing of my mother Betty. Her smile and enthusiasm for life as well as her compassion for those around her will live on in the actions of our entire family. My mother and late father Alan instilled the importance of family and community service upon my brothers and me. It was Mom's love of sports that shaped my own future. I have been truly blessed for her support, guidance, and endless love."
