(CBS) Multiple sources are confirming to KMOX news that Phyllis Schlafly, has died.
Schlafly founded the Eagle Forum in 1972, a pro-family conservative group focusing heavily on social issues — it has about 80,000 members and, as of this week, Schlafly was still president.
She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Washington University in 1944 — her masters from Radcliffe College in 1945 — and a J.D. from Washington University in 1978.
Schlafly’s organization has been split this presidential election — Schlafly supported Donald Trump, though many board members disagreed. She maintained her leadership of the organization.
Mrs. Schlafly will be dearly missed by many, especially conservatives who rallied behind her for several decades in the face of overwhelming opposition. May God rest your soul.
