The identities of two Lodi women who died during the recent heat wave were released by the San Joaquin County Sheriff's Department on Friday.
The coroner's office believes heat played a role in 10 deaths countywide.
The two Lodi women were identified, following notification of next of kin, as Wilma Horning, 68, and Mary Valente, 95, said Deputy Dave B. Konecny. Both women died on Sunday.
According to obituary information, Valente was a homemaker, a member of St. Anne's Catholic Church and a member of the UPPEC Portuguese Lounge, No. 60. A chapel service for Valente was held on Wednesday at Lodi Funeral Home.
Horning was also a homemaker, and a member of Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church. A graveside service for Horning was held Thursday at Cherokee Memorial Park Cemetery.
