Wed Jun 3, 2020, 08:37 AM

My mom died this morning.

Thankfully she went peacefully. She was 87 and had a long and full life. I don't wish to grieve but to celebrate her life.

As a young women she joined the local democratic club and eventually rose to be co-leader of that club. She became a state committee woman and served as state party co-chair as well as on the DNC. In her later years she sat on an advisory board to the state's department of elections and convinced them to adopt optical scan paper ballots so there would always be a paper trail in state elections.

Let her be an inspiration that one person can make a difference.

for the coming election. We will need a lot of Angel power to get every voter to the polls, and mom angels have super powers! (Mine came to me in a dream and told me that my daughter and son in law were expecting... imagine their surprise when daughter took a test after my phone call to her, to find out that grandma was right! )

I am impressed by her activism. We are losing a generation of these hard-working Democratic women (my mother, now 84, among them), people who have fought the good fight against incredible odds for a while. A toast to her life. I'm sorry she never saw a woman president.

85. So sorry for your loss

She didnít suffer and went peacefully And doesnít have to deal with the stuff we all are. But there will come times she will visit you when you least suspect it. Smile at your memories and know she is in a better place.

92. RIP

Sounds like a wonderful woman. My mother in law passed recently at 95. She worked for Planned Parenthood and we all know about that company.

93. Celebrating with gratitude.

The lines you wrote were enough to give us a sense of her social priorities, and how much she contributed to our community, for so long. I am grateful for her dedication to making this a better world. What is between the lines we can only imagine, and for that I extend a hug and a wish that happy memories will wash over the grief, to comfort you more and more with time.

An admirable woman, your mom. May her memory be a blessing.

That was a wonderful tribute to her. Iím glad that we have people like her on our side.

Peace and comfort.

105. I have empathy...my "baby" died yesterday

after 17 years of taking care of me. She had an I VOTED sticker on each stuffed animal and I even have a photo from 10 years ago where she has one on her forehead. It was a perfect existence... just the two of us and it was pure love.

I hope you are able to handle your loss better than me. I am a wreck. I am certain that a padded truck will be pulling up for me any day now with a Covid -style straitjacket with my name on it. My healthy dad died suddenly a year ago and I am still grieving that loss. This makes Hell look like a picnic, to me anyway. Why does this happen to wonderful beings yet the crazy, orange sadist lives on and on and on.......?????

It was hard for women to be taken seriously in positions of power (when they got them). She sounds like an incredible person. And to have left such an important legacy... you must be so, so proud of her.

I'm so sorry for your loss, and glad she had such an impactful life.
