DENVER (AP) _ The twin sister of former Broncos quarterback John Elway died of cancer at 42, the second death in the family in 15 months.

Jana Elway-Sever died Tuesday at Stanford (Calif.) Hospital.

The twins attended Stanford, where she played tennis. She later became a teaching pro and also was a schoolteacher.
