Dorothy Rodham died shortly after midnight and was surrounded by her family.  Dorothy Clinton was born in Chicago on June 4th, 1914.  The family said in a short statement:

“Her story was a quintessentially American one, largely because she wrote it herself.  She overcame abandonment and hardship as a young girl to become the remarkable woman she was — a warm, generous and strong woman; an intellectual; a woman who told a great joke and always got the joke; an extraordinary friend and, most of all, a loving wife, mother and grandmother,”  said the statement.

The family plans a private celebration of Dorothy Rodham’s life and have asked that well-wishers send donations, in lieu of flowers,  to the George Washington Hospital, the Heifer Project — which seeks to end world hunger — or to charities for neglected and mistreated children.

Politisite sends its condolences and prayers to Hillary Clinton and family in their time of grief.
