Former State Rep. Kate Ebli from Monroe has died.

A statement issued Monday by Ebli's family and colleagues says the 52-year-old died Sunday evening.

The statement did not list a cause of death but mentioned Ebli had been battling a recurrence of cancer for the past year. She was first diagnosed with cancer in 2004.

The Democrat completed her second full term in the Michigan House last week. She lost a re-election bid to Republican Dale Zorn in November.

Ebli was first elected to the House in a special election in 2006.

Colleagues said Ebli was a passionate advocate for her community and a gifted public servant. She is survived by a husband and daughter.

Funeral arrangements are pending.
