Gov. Dennis Daugaard has requested that flags throughout South Dakota be flown at half-staff statewide Tuesday, the day of Ruth Ziolkowski’s funeral, in honor of her achievements.
The celebration of her life's work will be held at 10 a.m. at the Crazy Horse Memorial.
Ruth was the wife of Korczak Ziolkowski, the sculptor of Crazy Horse. After Korczak passed away in 1982, Ruth Ziolkowski headed the project for over thirty years. She passed away Wednesday at the age of 87.
