Flags Fly at Half-Staff to Honor Rep. Patsy Terrell

12 Jun 2017 12:07 PM | Anonymous

Flags at state government buildings are flying at half-staff in honor of Representative Patsy Terrell (D-Hutchinson).   Rep. Terrell died unexpectedly June 7 in her hotel room in Topeka.  She was found when fellow legislators became concerned that she had not come to the Statehouse for session on Wednesday. 

Rep. Terrell was new to the Legislature this session.  I and many retailers were very impressed when she was one of the few legislators on the House Commerce Committee to return emails to everyone who communicated with her.   I am grateful to have had the opportunity to get to know her better during the veto session.  Rep. Terrell was enthusiastic and smart, with a bright smile and a quick wit.  She was passionate about representing her constituents.   

Memorial services have not been set.
