Mayor Jim Suttle is in West Virginia with family following the death of his mother, Wanda, last weekend.
Wanda S. Suttle died Saturday at age 87. A memorial service and burial will be Wednesday in St. Albans, West Virginia.
“Mayor Suttle was very close to his mother and spoke proudly of her strong character and work ethic,” Aida Amoura, Suttle’s spokeswoman, said in a statement. “The mayor credits his mom with his constant drive to do more as a businessman and as a public servant.”
The Mayor’s Office asked that letters of condolence be sent to the mayor’s City Hall address: 1819 Farnam Street, Suite 300, Omaha, NE 68183.
