Former Indiana First Lady Pat Whitcomb passes away


INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WEHT) – Former Indiana First Lady Pat Whitcomb passed away over the weekend.

Whitcomb served as First Lady from 1969 to 1974 when her husband, Ed Whitcomb, was governor.

She died at her home in Seymour on Sunday at the age of 91.

Governor Eric Holcomb is directing flags across Indiana to be flown at half-staff in honor of Whitcomb.

Governor Holcomb released 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.”
