BATON ROUGE - Governor John Bel Edwards signed an executive order directing the flags of the United States and the State of Louisiana to be flown at half-staff over the State Capitol and all public buildings and institutions of the State of Louisiana on Friday, March 4, 2016 until sunset. Services for State Representative Ronnie Edwards, who passed away on Wednesday, February 24 at the age of 63, will be held on Friday.
"Ronnie Edwards was a dedicated public servant who devoted herself to fighting for others," said Gov. Edwards. "Her warm demeanor and steadfast spirit left an impression on the many lives she touched. Louisiana has lost a powerful voice of compassion and activism. Donna and I continue to keep her family and friends in our thoughts and prayers, and I take comfort in the knowledge that her tireless efforts will inspire good works for generations to come."
