Chicago’s first and only female mayor will be laid to rest Monday after a funeral mass at St. Vincent de Paul Parish in Lincoln Park, where her grandparents were early parishioners.

Visitation for Jane Byrne, 81, will begin at 9 a.m. at St. Vincent de Paul, where Byrne’s mother also attended grammar school. A funeral mass at the church will follow at 11 a.m., celebrated by Monsignor Kenneth Velo.

The former mayor died Friday in hospice care, having been in poor health in recent years and suffering a stroke in January 2013.

The funeral procession to Calvary Cemetery in Evanston will make two brief stops after leaving the church: first in front of City Hall, and then at 111 E. Chestnut, Byrne’s home for most of her adult life.
