WASHINGTON, DC - Congressman Kenny Hulshof's mother has died of congestive heart failure at a hospital in Sikeston.

69-year-old Geri Moody Hulshoff died Monday night.  She was a native of southeast Missouri.  She and her husband, Paul, who died in 2002, ran a farm in Bertrand, about eight miles east of Sikeston.

Congressman Hulshoff, their only son, helped his mother manage the farm after his father's death.

Hulshoff, of Columbia, is in his fourth term representing the Ninth District of northeast Missouri.

A private service for his mother will be held tomorrow.
