President John F. Kennedy's sister, Eunice Kennedy Shriver died early Tuesday at Cape Cod Hospital. She left her husband, her 5 children and 19 grandchildren at the age of 88. She had suffered a series of strokes in recent years.
When she was in a critical condition the Pope offered some prayers for her, she was known for her generous public service mostly for those who are physically and mentally challenged. She was motivated by Rosemary Kennedy, her mentally disabled sister. Eunice organized the first Special Olympics in 1968.
