A public funeral service for former Mayor Sophie Masloff is scheduled for 11 a.m. Tuesday at Temple Sinai in Squirrel Hill.

The family asks that people be seated by 10:45 a.m. Burial will be private.

The city will host memorials throughout the week. A week-long vigil in the lobby of the City-County Building begins Monday, and will display Masloff's official portrait as well as a guest book that will be given to her family.

Mayor Bill Peduto ordered flags on city property to be lowered to half-staff for the week.
