Ramona Hahn, the wife of the late county Supervisor Kenneth Hahn and the mother of both former Los Angeles Mayor James K. Hahn and City Councilwoman Janice Hahn, died Monday at the age of 86.

Ramona Hahn's death came toward the end of Janice Hahn's race for Congress in Tuesday's extremely contentious special election.

Like her daughter, Ramona Hahn lived in San Pedro.  Her death was confirmed by Doane Liu, chief of staff to Janice Hahn.

Liu said the family would have a statement later Monday.
