BETTENDORF, Iowa (AP) — Longtime Bettendorf Alderwoman Debe LaMar has died. She was 61.

The city says in a news release that LaMar died Thursday.

Television station WQAD reports that LaMar died after a long battle with cancer. She was first elected to the City Council in 1998 and served five terms. She also served as mayor pro-tem for seven years.

Mayor Bob Gallagher praised LaMar as “a dear friend and tireless community advocate.”

The release says one of her proudest accomplishments was construction of a splash pad at Lincoln Park, which was dedicated to her in June.

LaMar is survived by a son, sister and father. Funeral arrangements were to be announced at a later date.
