(CORYDON) - Former Indiana first lady Judy O'Bannon has remarried more than a decade after losing her husband, then-Governor Frank O'Bannon, to a stroke.

O'Bannon wed retired Indianapolis attorney Donald Willsey in a Friday ceremony held in a former log barn at the O'Bannon family's farm in Corydon some 25 miles west of Louisville, Ky.

O'Bannon tells The Indianapolis Star the ceremony was "an acknowledgement of our families coming together."

She wore wear a vintage dress her mother made and a garnet-studded wedding ring that cost just $18 at an antique mall.

The 78-year-old O'Bannon and 84-year-old Willsey were fixed up by mutual friends two years ago, a year after Willsey's first wife died of cancer.

Gov. Frank O'Bannon died in 2003 following 47 years of marriage to Judy O'Bannon.
