SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - Governor Kristi Noem has ordered flags to be flown at half-staff statewide Saturday in honor of former South Dakota First Lady Jean Rounds.

Jean Rounds passed away Tuesday following a two-year battle with cancer.

A visitation will be held on Friday, November 5th from 5 to 7 pm at Ss. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Pierre with a 6 pm Prayer Service. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10 am Saturday, November 6th at Ss.

Jean was first diagnosed with a malignant high-grade aggressive tumor near her sciatic nerve in June 2019. The treatment was successful, however, a malignancy was discovered during her 90-day check-up in 2020.
