Pauline Phillips, the woman known to the world as "Dear Abby," died Wednesday at age 94, a rep for Phillips' daughter Jeanne confirmed to ABC News.
Phillips struggled with Alzheimer's disease for years. By the mid-1990s, she was already co-writing her column with her daughter Jeanne and as the illness progressed, she passed on the torch completely.

"I have lost my mother, my mentor and my best friend. My mother leaves very big high heels to fill with a legacy of compassion, commitment and positive social change. I will honor her memory every day by continuing this legacy." said Jeanne.

Back in the days when I subscribed to the newspaper I found her advice to be well considered. Alzheimer's is an evil disease in that it steals the personality and leaves behind confusion and terror. I hope she is at peace.

End of an era.  We STILL call the advice column in the local paper "Ann Landers" and she died ages ago.

Yep.  Twin, I believe.  But they'll always be linked.

As I stated in an earlier thread, Yahoo news made a typo and stated her age as 54 instead of 94.
