The Ithaca Fire Department is mourning a loss of one of its own.
The department says firefighter Daryl Pace passed away Monday after being diagnosed with job-related cancer.
She retired a few months ago to spend more time with her family. Pace was just 36-year-old old.
Pace was a graduate of SUNY Cortland and Homer Central Schools. She had been with the Ithaca Fire Department for the last 10 years.
