Madison – On Tuesday, former Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor, UW Regent, State Senator, and State Representative Margaret Farrow passed away. Senator Alberta Darling released the following statement:
“Margaret Farrow was a trailblazer and a fearless leader. I am proud to have called her a friend. As the first woman to serve as Wisconsin’s Lieutenant Governor, Margaret’s legacy will continue to inspire many women in politics – including me.
I was lucky to serve alongside Margaret for several years. In fact, when we served together, the majority of Republicans were women.
Margaret was passionate, tough, honest, and kind. She believed in her community and believed in our great state. It is impossible to have met Margaret Farrow and not be encouraged and inspired by her.
My thoughts and prayers are with her family, especially her son, Paul.”
Senator Darling represents portions of Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Washington, and Waukesha Counties.
