Former Gov. Rosellini memorial services scheduled

Memorial services will be held Sunday and Monday for former Gov. Al Rosellini, who died this week at the age of 101.

Rosellini served as governor from 1957 to 1965. He died Monday in Seattle after complications from  pneumonia.

Perhaps best known for championing the Highway 520 floating bridge that bears his name, Rosellini was honored as the father of the University of Washington Medical School and sought out as a mentor by successive generations of Democratic politicians.

His family says a service will be held Sunday at 5 p.m. at Our Lady of Mount Virgin Church, 1531 Bradner Place South, Seattle.

A celebration of his life is planned Monday at 11 a.m. at St. James Cathedral, 804 Ninth Ave., Seattle. A reception will follow at Bell Harbor International Conference Center, 2211 Alaskan Way, Seattle.
