Elizabeth Edwards, political wife and author, died Tuesday morning after a six-year battle with breast cancer, CNN.com reports. She was 61.
Edwards, who was legally separated from former Democratic vice presidential nominee John Edwards, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004. She passed away in her Chapel Hill, N.C. home, surrounded by family.
"Today we have lost the comfort of Elizabeth's presence but she remains the heart of this family. We love her and will never know anyone more inspiring or full of life," her family said in a statement. "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."
