Elizabeth Edwards dies at age 61

Wife of disgraced former Democratic politician John Edwards and healthcare activist dies after battle with cancer.  Elizabeth Edwards, wife of disgraced Democratic politician John Edwards, has died after a public battle with cancer that had won her a legion of admirers. She was surrounded by her family, including her estranged former husband, at her home in North Carolina. She was 61 .

But, as Edwards herself would have admitted, neither cancer nor failure of her marriage was the biggest sadness in her life. The couple lost their son, Wade, in a road accident in 1996. After the tragedy they had two more children while Edwards was in her 40's.

The family said:

"Today we have lost the comfort of Elizabeth’s presence but, she remains the heart of this family," the family said in a statement. "We love her and will never know anyone more inspiring or full of life. On behalf of Elizabeth we want to express our gratitude to the thousands of kindred spirits who moved and inspired her along the way. Your support and prayers touched our entire family."
