Encinitas City Councilwoman Maggie Houlihan died Friday evening after a long battle with endometrial cancer, her husband said Saturday morning. She was 63.

Well known for her compassion for any living creature and for her long-standing involvement in civic issues, Houlihan served on the council for 11 years and was mayor twice ---- once in 2004 and once in 2009 ---- under the city's rotating mayoral system.
