Funeral procession for former mayor's wife Maggie Daley winds way through Chicago
CHICAGO (AP) ' A funeral procession for former Chicago first lady Maggie Daley is winding its way through the city.
The procession is being led by one police SUV with flashing lights, followed by six police officers on motorcycles. A gray hearse is being followed by numerous limousines.
More than 100 somber onlookers, some holding small Chicago flags, watched as the vehicles passed City Hall on Monday morning.
The wife of former Chicago Mayor Richard Daley died Thursday after a long battle with cancer. She was 68.
Among those gathering at a Chicago church for her funeral are first lady Michelle Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. Obama is from Chicago.
