I certainly didn't always agree with her but always enjoyed watching and listening to her. At age 76, reports like this always remind me or my own mortality.
Wow ... seems like she was on ABC’s talking heads show just a few months back ...
Don’t think she is considered Number 3 in the Eddie Money, Ric O. death prediction.
Anyone know what she died from? At that age, cancer or heart attack are good guesses.
Just looked. She had breast cancer. She died from complications from it..whatever that means
I always thought her name was really cool. And she appeared to be a really nice person.
Best that I say nothing.
She was a beltway TV staple for decades.
Her inflated opinion of herself finally killed her.
Saw her on TV a couple of months ago. She didn’t look well................
Nother Democrat journalist goes to sleep with the fishes. I dont care and the worlds already a better place without Cokie Roberts in it.
My SIL had a stroke and died from the chemo..............
Sorry to hear this. Rest in peace, Cokie.
Her voice seemed to get more and more croaky over time.I would have thought throat or respiratory issues.
My Mother died of the same complications, name the cancer spread to the bones and other places. Terrible way to go.
More info. here:
“Complications from breast cancer” were what killed her. FReeper women, look out and do what your doctors advise you to do.
Her father was Hale Boggs, dem House Majority leader. Went missing 40 years ago on a plane flight in Alaska.
The old media staples that lied to us for decades are dying off.
Similar thing happened to my dad. A lot of the drugs used to treat cancer have nasty side effects, including clot issues.
Her father was Hale Boggs, who was supposedly going to be the next Speaker of the House, until he and his pilot disappeared in Alaska on a hunting trip. The plane was never found..................
