Wife of GOP California congressman dies of cancer

Ethie Radanovich, the wife of Rep. George Radanovich of California's Central Valley, has died of ovarian cancer.

The congressman said in a statement Friday that his wife slipped into a coma Wednesday after enduring a nearly three-year battle. She passed away in her northern Virginia home Thursday night at the age of 50.

Ethelinde Weaver Radanovich was an Oklahoma native known for her ebullient personality. The former political consultant married Radanovich in 1996 and gave birth to their only son, King, two years later.

The Mariposa congressman called her "the love of my life." He announced in December that he would not seek re-election in the Republican-leaning 19th congressional district to be with his family during her cancer battle.
