Statement of Governor Haley Barbour and First Lady Marsha Barbour
On the recent passing of former First Ladies Fordice, Finch and Johnson

(Jackson, Miss.) –"Pat Fordice was a model First Lady. She represented our state with strength, dignity and grace. As a respected ambassador for Mississippi, Pat became a symbol for making the state a better place.  Her compassion and leadership served as an inspiration to those who knew her, and she will be missed.

We also lost two other great women with the passing of former First Lady Zelma Finch and Lady Bird Johnson, both of whom made outstanding contributions to public service.  This has certainly been a difficult week for Mississippians as well as Americans, and Marsha and I hope you will join us in keeping these unique ladies and their families in our thoughts and prayers.”
