Calling hours, funeral set for Rep. Slaughter

Funeral arrangements have been set for Congresswoman Louise Slaughter.

Slaughter's office says her family will receive members of the community during two sessions of calling hours at Miller Funeral and Cremation Services on South Winton Road in Rochester.

She will be remembered during a ceremony at Kodak Hall at the Eastman Theatre on Friday starting at 11 a.m. The service will be open to the public.

Gov. Cuomo has directed that flags be flown at half-staff in honor of Slaughter on the day of the funeral.

Slaughter was a long-time congresswoman from the Rochester area.

Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, Democratic senators from NY, said Saturday that the renaming would be appropriate almost a year after Slaughter dedicated the station. "She was a champion for our state who fought tirelessly for the Rochester area, and her remarkable legacy will carry on for generations to come".

The station is a "symbol of the state's commitment to rebuilding its transportation infrastructure for the 21st century", said Cuomo, who noted that he and Slaughter together attended the station's opening last fall.
