MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers today ordered the flags of the United States and the state of Wisconsin to be flown at half-staff on Tues., June 22, 2021, in honor of former State Representative Ann Hraychuck, who passed away on June 6, 2021, at the age of 69.

“By all accounts, Ann Hraychuck was a kind, compassionate, and dynamic person, deeply committed to her family, friends, colleagues, and neighbors,” said Gov. Evers. “Her loss will surely leave a hole in her community and in the hearts of those who knew her. On behalf of the state of Wisconsin, I offer my deepest condolences to her husband, David, her entire family and loved ones, and the Polk County community.”

Hraychuck was first elected to the Wisconsin State Assembly in 2006 where she served two terms representing Wisconsin’s 28th Assembly District. She was the first woman elected to the 28th Assembly District and served as the Majority Caucus Secretary. Prior to her election to the State Assembly, Hraychuck dedicated 32 years of service to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, serving as Polk County Sheriff from 2001 to 2006. She also served as a sensitive crimes investigator, law enforcement educator and trainer for the Wisconsin Department of Justice, and received the “In The Line of Duty” Medal of Valor. As an avid hunter and angler, Hraychuck was the first woman to be elected as president of the Polk County Sportsmen’s Club.

A private memorial service will be held on June 22, 2021 in Balsam Lake.

Executive Order #125 is available here, and is in effect from sunrise to sunset on Tues., June 22, 2021.
