BOSTON - Eunice Kennedy Shriver, who emerged from a powerful male-dominated political family to found the Special Olympics and become a leading advocate of the mentally disabled, died yesterday. She was 88.
Shriver died after she was hospitalised recently in Hyannis, the Massachusetts town on Cape Cod synonymous with the Kennedy dynasty.
She was married to Sargent Shriver, whose long public service career included starting the Peace Corps under Eunice's brother, John F Kennedy.
As a child she wanted to compete athletically against her brothers, including John, who would be elected president in 1960 and slain in 1963; Robert, a New York senator whose presidential bid ended with his assassination in 1968; and Edward, who has served as senator from Massachusetts for more than 45 years. - Reuters
