More than five years after suffering a debilitating stroke, former state Sen. Patsy Kurth has passed away.

The 70-year-old died early Wednesday, according to family and friends. Kurth, of Malabar, served as state senator from 1992 to 2000. She then ran unsuccessfully as a Democrat for a congressional seat, losing to Dave Weldon.

Sen. Bill Nelson wrote on Twitter, "Today we lost one of the best public servants I’ve known. Patsy Kurth also was a wonderful mother to four daughters."
