69. Founding Mother

Cokie Roberts*
December 27, 1943–September 17, 2019

She was smart, a deep researcher and an engaging writer, and seemed to have a twinkle in her voice (it's a stupid phrase, but yes, I meant to write that). I loved her Ladies of Liberty. One of Mom's favorite gifts from my favorite sister Claire was her book Founding Mothers. Although Cokie Roberts was incisive about many issues, not only those pertaining to women, she certainly proved that her-story is as important to our country as history.

May she rest in peace, with her work continuing to hold high her legacy.
