I don't know too much about her. Wasn't she very involved in the Special Olympics?

RIP.

This is such a tragedy. Mother of four children, all under eighteen.

Some of that guy's comments re the "Catholic" Kennedys and suicide are bizarre, to say the least.

That's a hell of a thing all right - hadn't heard it. That family has had such a string of bad things happen, both from within and from without, that it would almost make you believe in curses.

It seems Mary Kennedy had problems with drink and prescription drugs, and due to on going divorce Battles were still legally married. It s sad for the kids, oldest 17 , youngest 11 , with the two eldest at boarding school and the two youngest with their dad at the time it happened, Robert Kennedy is dating the a tv star ( the wife in curb your enthusiasm ).

I am sure a lot of people died today, does this deserve a thread. RIP to her anyway.

is her Daughter the one that was married to Arnie?
Yes, Eunice Kennedy was Maria Shriver's mother.

Robert Kennedy, Jr. is Maria's first cousin. The death of his wife, Mary, by suicide has just
been announced. She was only 52 years old.

the kennedys' family fortune was built on organised crime and ruthless stroke-pulling on a truly global and industrial scale.

having said that, i wouldn't wish their accumulated tragedies on them or any other clan.

I know who the dead woman reminds me of now-Caré Otis of Mickey Rourke fame!
I can go back to bed now.
