Gov. Eric Holcomb directed all flags be flown at half-staff across the Hoosier state in honor of former Indiana first lady Susan Bayh, who died last week at age 61 after a battle with brain cancer.
Holcomb issued the order Friday, asking that flags be lowered, including by businesses and state residents, to half-staff until sunset on Feb. 18.
Bayh, who was an attorney and wife of former Gov. Evan Bayh, died on Feb. 5 in McLean, Virginia. She was Indiana’s first lady for eight years after her husband, a Democrat, became governor in 1989. The Bayhs have twin sons.
