Geraldine Ferraro passes away at age 75

Saturday, March 26, 2011

The 1984 vice Presidential candidate who ran with Walter Mondale, died today in a Massachusetts General Hospital. She suffered from a long standing illness called myeloma, a blood cancer that she had for at least 12 years. Mondale and Ferraro ran against the incumbent President Ronald Reagan and lost by what was considered no less than a landslide. Running with Reagan as his VP at the time was George H.W. Bush who finally was elected after Ronald Reagan in 1988 as the 41st President of the United States. Geraldine Ferraro was respected across the isle, as many Rupublicans, including her rival in 1984, George H. W. Bush commented how he was saddened to hear of her passing.

She was born August 26, 1935 -- Women's Equality Day -- in Newburgh, New York, to restaurant owner Dominick and Antonetta (Corrieri) Ferraro, and later earned a bachelor's degree in English at Marymount Manhattan College in 1956 and then earned a law degree from Fordham University Law School in 1960.
Since 1960, she had been married to John Zaccaro, and during their 50-year marriage, they had three children, now adults.

She is survived by her husband, her three children and their spouses, and eight grandchildren.
