Mother of City Attorney Carmen Trutanich dies

The reelection campaign of Los Angeles City Attorney Carmen Trutanich announced just now that his mother, Esther, died this afternoon. She was at San Pedro Hospital and died from complications involving pneumonia. From the campaign statement:

Mrs. Trutanich had been ill for some time and had twice before been stricken with pneumonia.


City Atty. Trutanich, who is now running for reelection, said he would have no comment on his mother's passing except to say that he felt truly blessed to have been raised by such a wonderful woman. Esther is pre-deceased by her husband, Andrew. The couple had seven children, 15 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren.

The Trutanich's were married in San Pedro and raised all their children in the same house where Mrs. Trutanich lived up until a week before her death. Mrs. Trutanich spent her life as a homemaker. Her husband worked for Starkist Tuna for more than 40 years.

City Atty. Trutanich has indefinitely suspended his campaign activities to deal with family matters. Service arrangements are pending.
