It is now confirmed that that Representative Stephanie Tubbs Jones, a five-term House member from Ohio, died after suffering an aneurysm yesterday, CNN reported. She was 58, reports Bill Arthur from Bloomberg.

Earlier we had reported about Stephanie Tubbs Jones' Aneurysm and the mixed reports about her passing death.

Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones, D-Ohio, is reported to have suffered an aneurysm and is not expected to recover, according to CBS affiliate WOIO in Cleveland, reports CBS News. However, Plain Dealer claims she has died.

"WOIO also reported that the congresswoman is on life support at this time.

"The station reported today that she was transported overnight to Huron Hospital in Cleveland after police found her in her car last evening."

There's an ongoing discussion in ClevelandEgghead's recommended diary as well.

The Daily Kos community extends best wishes to her family, friends and constituents during this difficult time.

UPDATE

Via the Cleveland Plain Dealer:

U.S. Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones, the first African-American woman to represent Ohio in Congress, has died after suffering a brain aneurysm, said sources familiar with the situation.

She was removed from life support at 12:19 p.m. at Huron Road Hospital, the sources said.

Tubbs Jones, 58, served as a Cuyahoga County judge and prosecutor before succeeding U.S. Rep. Louis Stokes. She has served five terms in Congress and was expected to easily win her sixth in November.

Our hearts go out to her family and friends.

Update: Mixed reports, apparently. Plain Dealer reporting she has died, CNN saying no, her doctors at a press conference are saying she's in critical condition, according to commenters.
