Hiya Skivvy :)

My hearts and prayers to her family

From the link you posted; here's what I liked about her ;) I remember my teacher talking about it in high school. I was already somewhat of a naturalist/environmentalist etc :D

Determined environmentalist
As first lady, she was perhaps best known as the determined environmentalist who wanted roadside billboards and junkyards replaced with trees and wildflowers.

"Had it not been for her, I think that the whole subject of the environment might not have been introduced to the public stage in just the way it was and just the time it was," Harry Middleton, the retired director of the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library once said.

"So she figures mightily, I think, in the history of the country if for no other reason than that alone."

I've moved this over to Random as the Announcements thread is meant to share news about or congratulate members, not really for news stories. :)
