(Seymour, Ind.) – Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb is directing flags to half-staff after the death of a former First Lady.
Patricia (Pat) Whitcomb passed away Sunday in her adopted home of Seymour. She was 91.
Pat was the First Lady to Edgar Whitcomb, who would become the 43rd Governor of Indiana in 1969. He remained in office until 1973.
Governor Eric Holcomb offered the following statement:
“Pat Whitcomb served Hoosiers during her time as First Lady with honor and grace. She loved to travel and made it a point to visit all 92 counties in Indiana, twice. I loved that she learned how to greet people in many different languages so she could communicate with the world as she loved meeting new people from all corners always defining our signature Hoosier Hospitality. Janet and I extend our condolences to the Whitcomb family.”
The governor has also directed flags in Indiana to be flown at half-staff in honor and remembrance for First Lady, Pat Whitcomb.
Flags should remain at half-staff until sunset on Monday, July 12.
