(Indianapolis, Ind.) – Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb is directing flags be flown at half-staff in honor of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Ginsburg passed away on Friday at the age of 87 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.  

She was the second-ever woman to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. Ginsburg held her spot on the highest court from 1993 until her death last week.

Gov. Holcomb is directing flags be flown at half-staff from sunrise to sunset until the day of her interment.

The Indiana Supreme Court released the following statement:

In a year already marked by significant suffering and loss, the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg hits especially hard. I join others in mourning the passing of a trailblazer, change-maker, and inspiration to many. 

Justice Ginsburg’s work provided both men and women an opportunity to better their lives. She was a hero to many of us in our legal careers, and a cultural icon outside the legal profession. And her civility and genuine friendship with those who had differing opinions show her as an example of a leader to model.

To those of us who emulate her, this is not just the loss of a powerful leader and statesperson, but the personal loss of a mentor. We offer our condolences to her family and share in their grieving. Justice Ginsburg’s memory should inspire each of us to effect positive change in this world.
