    Former Indiana congress woman Katie Hall has died. She was 73.

    Hall’s husband, John Henry Hall, says she died Monday at Methodist Hospitals’ Northlake campus from an undisclosed illness.

    Hall was a state senator when she was appointed in 1982 to complete the term of U.S. Rep. Adam Benjamin of northwesternIndiana’s 1st District after his death. Later that year, she won election to a full two-year term.

    Hall was defeated in the 1984 Democratic primary by Peter Visclosky, who has held the seat since then. She then served asGary’s city clerk from 1988 until 2003, when she pleaded guilty to extorting money from her staff.
