Dorothy Hukill to be remembered Sunday

The family of state Sen. Dorothy Hukill, a Port Orange Republican who died this week, will host visitors Sunday in Volusia County.

People may pay respects from noon to 2 p.m. Sunday at the Volusia Memorial Funeral Home in Port Orange, Senate President Joe Negron said in a memo to lawmakers and staff members.

Negron said a formal memorial service will be a small, family gathering.

Hukill, 72, died after battling cervical cancer. She had served in the Senate since 2012, after eight years in the House.
