A funeral service is scheduled for Tuesday for Nadia Holober, the Millbrae vice mayor who passed away last week from cancer.
Holober worked for the city for 14 years after she moved with her family to Millbrae in 1991.

She was first elected to the City Council in 1999 and served as mayor in 2003 and 2004. She was elected to her third term on the council in 2009, after which she worked her second term as vice mayor. She was working  up until her death, city officials said.

Millbrae Mayor Gina Papan said in a statement that Holober’s “unflagging spirit of community involvement and support will be greatly missed by all the residents of Millbrae.”

Funeral services are scheduled to be held Tuesday at St. Dunstan Catholic Church in Millbrae.
