Unknown at this time

Death Summary: Eunice Kennedy Shriver died at Cape Cod Hospital in Hyannis Massachusetts. The exact cause of death hasn't been released.

Shriver's family released the following statment:

"It's hard for us to believe: the amazing Eunice Kennedy Shriver went home to God this morning at 2 a.m.

She was the light of our lives, a mother, wife, grandmother, sister and aunt who taught us by example and with passion what it means to live a faith-driven life of love and service to others. For each of us, she often seemed to stop time itself - to run another Special Olympics games, to visit us in our homes, to attend to her own mother, her sisters and brothers, and to sail, tell stories, and laugh and serve her friends. How did she do it all?

Inspired by her love of God, her devotion to her family, and her relentless belief in the dignity and worth of every human life, she worked without ceasing - searching, pushing, demanding, hoping for change. She was a living prayer, a living advocate, a living center of power. She set out to change the world and to change us, and she did that and more. She founded the movement that became Special Olympics, the largest movement for acceptance and inclusion for people with intellectual disabilities in the history of the world. Her work transformed the lives of hundreds of millions of people across the globe, and they in turn are her living legacy.

We have always been honored to share our mother with people of good will the world over who believe, as she did, that there is no limit to the human spirit. At this time of loss, we feel overwhelmed by the gifts of prayer and support poured out to us from so many who loved her. We are together in our belief that she is now in heaven, rejoicing with her family, enjoying the fruits of her faith, and still urging us onward to the challenges ahead. Her love will inspire us to faith and service always.

She was forever devoted to the Blessed Mother. May she be welcomed now by Mary to the joy and love of life everlasting, in the certain truth that her love and spirit will live forever."

Who was Eunice Kennedy Shriver : Shriver was a member of the prominent Kennedy family, younger sister to John F. Kennedy. She helped found the Special Olympics during the 1960s.

    May The Lord comfort you all, I know how difficult it is to lose a parent, your Mom was a lovely woman who had faith in people, in love and in this world. She would even forgive the insulting remarks from Dennis & Matias but I don’t. I wish for them what they deserve and it will come to them when they least expect it; may the soul of this wonderful woman live forever and may your glorious memories never ever fade.

  23. Cape Cod Lady Says:

    Her flatulence will be missed on cape cod by all who smelled it. A bit dry and dusty in latter years but still smelled like 20yr old scotch. Bless that tight anus and huge liver. It’s pretty easy to see by looking at her what she will look like as a skeleton. Wonderful foresight on her part so we won’t fear her during the resurrection. She will look as she does now a familiar terror.

  24. Idi Amin Dada Says:

    She looks like on of my zombies.
