A funeral Mass for Art Donovan, the Baltimore Colts defensive tackle and member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, is scheduled for 11 a.m. today at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen in Baltimore.

Donovan, 89, died Sunday of a respiratory ailment at Stella Maris Hospice in Timonium. There will be no viewing and interment is private.

Donovan died just before 8 p.m. Sunday, surrounded by 15 to 20 family members, said his daughter, Kelly Donovan-Mazzulli.

"My mom [Dorothy] was with dad to his last breath, as she was determined to be," she said.
