COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Ohio’s governor has ordered flags at public buildings and grounds in Ohio flown at half-staff in honor of the late first lady Barbara Bush.

Republican Gov. John Kasich’s resolution on Wednesday ordered the flags lowered until Bush’s burial.

A family spokesman said Bush died Tuesday at age 92. She was the wife of former President George H.W. Bush and the mother of President George W. Bush.

Kasich’s order said the flags would be lowered in honor of Bush’s life and service. She was one of two first ladies who had a child who was elected president.

The other was Abigail Adams, wife of John Adams and mother of John Quincy Adams.
