Ferraro was Walter Mondale’s running mate against Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush in 1984. Many remember this election because it was on of the biggest defeats ever in a presidential race.

During her campaign, she was known for saying, “Modern life is confusing. Make no Ms.-take about it.” She was also the first Italian-American to run on a major party ticket.

Ferraro was surrounded by her loved ones at Massachusetts General in Boston. She will be truly missed.
