TACOMA — Former state legislator R. Lorraine Wojahn died Saturday in Tacoma at the age of 92.

The News Tribune reports she suffered from congestive heart failure.

Wojahn served 32 years in the Washington House and Senate and is known for helping create the state Health Department.

She helped develop the state History Museum in Tacoma and the University of Washington Tacoma campus.

One of her famous bills required bacon packages to have a window in the back to make sure packers couldn’t hide the fat.
