"Vicki and I are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Rep. Thyra Stevenson this morning. Thyra was a dedicated public servant for Nez Perce and Lewis Counties, and a great legislator and friend in the Idaho State House. Thyra's leadership will be greatly missed in the State of Idaho, and my prayers are with the Stevenson family during this difficult time," Risch said in a statement.
