According to Reuters, Annie breathed her last on Tuesday at a Minnesota nursing home after battling complications of COVID-19, the respiratory disease caused by the novel coronavirus.

Mike DeWine, governor of the Ohio state, confirmed the news on Twitter but didn’t disclose the cause of her death. He also said flags would be flown until sunset on the day of her memorial.

“Fran and I were saddened to learn of the death of Annie Glenn. She was always kind and gracious to us whenever we saw her. This is a very sad day for all Ohioans. Annie Glenn represented all that is good about our country,” the governor wrote.
