Governor Holcomb has ordered government buildings in Indiana to lower their flags to half staff on Thursday to honor former First Lady Susan Bayh.

She was the wife of Evan Bayh, who was governor of the state from 1989 to 1997 and a senator from 1999 to 2011. Mrs. Bayh died of brain cancer earlier this month at the age of 61.

Holcomb is also asking Indiana businesses and residents to lower their flags on the 18th in her honor.
