Conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly, 92, passed away on Monday just after 3:00 p.m. at her home in Ladue, Missouri surrounded by family. The”godmother the conservative movement” and “sweetheart of the silent majority,” Schlafly was instrumental in launching and shaping the modern day conservative movement. Schlafly was active in politics for more than one quarter of all American history and has been at the center of nearly every political battle since 1945. She is survived by her six children, sixteen grandchildren, and three great grandchildren. Below is tribute written by her son Andy Schlafly.
