Phyllis Schlafly, a larger-than-life legend in the conservative movement, passed away on Monday afternoon at the age of 92, surrounded by her family. Schlafly was born in St. Louis, Missouri on August 15, 1924. According to Breitbart, she passed away in the town of Ladue, barely a ten minute drive from where she was born.
Schlafly spent more than 70 years of her life fighting for conservative values and American ideals. She got her start in the political arena in 1945 when she volunteered for the Republican Party. Her loyalty to the Republican party never waned or swayed. Schlafly never missed attending the Republican National Convention since 1952.
Schlafly entered into conservative activism in the 1950’s by helping to form thousands of anti-Communist study groups across the country and educate the members about the principles that America was founded upon and the dangers of communism.
Due to the extremely liberal bias in the mainstream media, Schlafly founded the “Phyllis Schlafly Report,” a monthly newsletter that kept conservatives informed with the truth about issues that mattered. The newsletter has been in publication for over 50 years.
In addition to her tireless work ethic to the conservative movement, Schlafly also enjoyed a very healthy family life. She was married to her late husband Fred for 44 years and had 6 children, 16 grandchildren, and 3 great grandchildren.
She will be sorely missed!
