Today I am saddened to announce that Indiana State Representative Phyllis Pond died Sunday presumable as a result of pulmonary fibrosis which was diagnosed last month. She was 82 years of age.
Representative Pond was elected to the state legislature in 1978 where she served until submitting her resignation over the Summer that was to be effective 15 October 2013. During her tenure Pond became know as a leading advocate for Shared Parenting in child custody cases. She served on the Indiana Child Custody and Support Advisory Committee and continued to file a joint legal custody bill but was unable to gain majority support.
