VA senator's mother, Marjorie Warner, dies

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Marjorie Warner, the mother of Sen. Mark R. Warner, has died after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease.

Marjorie Warner died Saturday morning in her home in Vernon, Conn., according to a brief statement from the senator's office. She was 81.

She had suffered from the progressive, irreversible neurological disorder for years, including during her son's term as Virginia governor from 2002 to 2006.

Besides the first-term Democratic senator, she leaves a daughter, Lisa, and her husband of 60 years, Robert Warner.

Warner spokesman Kevin Hall said Saturday that funeral arrangements were pending.
