CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Gov. Maggie Hassan has directed flags to fly at half-staff in honor of former New Hampshire First Lady Catherine Gregg, who died last week.

Flags are being lowered Thursday for Gregg, who was 96.

She was the widow of former Gov. Hugh Gregg and the mother of former Gov. Judd Gregg, who also served as a congressman and U.S. senator.

Hassan says that throughout her life, Gregg worked to preserve the culture, history and natural beauty that make New Hampshire so special. Hassan said she touched countless lives in many different communities across the state.

Gregg was instrumental in saving the Wentworth-Coolidge mansion in Portsmouth, the former home of New Hampshire’s first royal governor.

Hugh Gregg, who served as governor from 1953 to 1955, died in 2003.
