article imageObama's Grandmother Dies Today

By Carolyn E. Price     Nov 3, 2008 in Politics
Just over a week after he left his campaign to say one last goodbye to his grandmother, Barack Obama announced today that she has died of cancer.
Last week, on October 24th, there were many reports about Democratic Presidential Candidate Barack Obama's grandmother and her failing health. In fact, Obama told "Good Morning America" that "without going through the details too much, she's gravely ill. We weren't sure and I'm still not sure whether she makes it to Election Day."
Sadly, today, those comments came to be. Obama and his sister issued the following statement today:
It is with great sadness that we announce that our grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, has died peacefully after a battle with cancer.
Obama called Durham the "cornerstone" of his family after she helped raise him from the age of 10.
Madelyn Dunham was 85.
