Governor Gina Raimondo is calling for Rhode Island flags at all state agencies and buildings to be flown at half-staff to honor the passing of Suzanne Carcieri.

As GoLocalProv reported, Carcieri, the wife of former RI Governor Donald Carcieri, passed away at the age of 76 on Thursday.

“Sue Carcieri was a smart, passionate and caring First Lady who served Rhode Island with grace and dignity. She was deeply dedicated to causes that moved her, fighting for breast cancer awareness and heating assistance for RIers in need. Andy and I are keeping her loved ones, particularly Governor Carcieri and their children, in our prayers during this difficult time,” said Raimondo.

Don Carcieri was the 73rd Governor of Rhode Island, serving from January 2003 to January 2011.

The Carcieri family moved to Kingston, Jamaica, in 1981 to work for Catholic Relief Services before returning to Rhode Island two years later, when Don Carcieri worked for the Cookson Group. 

In 2015, the state's former First Lady was added to the Wall of Honor at East Greenwich High School for her service to Rhode Island.
