In place of today’s Throwback Thursday post, we remember a friend of Basin Electric who died July 5 in Fargo.
Jean Guy was North Dakota’s first lady from 1960-1972. Her husband, Former Gov. William Guy, died in April.
According to Jean Guy’s obituary, “Her exceptional memory for names and her wide interests in public policy made her a valuable partner in political campaigns and state government work. She was chair of the first Capitol Grounds Beautification Committee. From its inception in 1968, she served first as chair and then as secretary of the Kennedy Memorial Center Foundation in Bismarck, which oversees the property rented to the North Dakota Democratic-NPL Party headquarters.”
