Sandra Leek, who ran the Indiana Civil Rights Commission for 13 years, died Oct. 12 after battling cancer. She was 58.

Evan Bayh in 1992 to lead the Indiana Civil Rights Commission; she stepped down in 2005. She practiced law at Baker & Daniels LLP after leaving the state agency, and most recently at the Law Offices of Sandra D. Leek & Associates in Indianapolis.
