Celebrity's Relative
    (February 27, 1960-September 16, 2011)
    Born in Bronxville, New York
    Daughter of Ted Kennedy and Joan Kennedy
    Producer for the WBZ-TV (Boston) program 'Evening Magazine'
    A lot of her jobs look like nepotism: working for her father's Senate campaigns, board member of the Edward M. Kennedy Institute, producer for VSA arts (founded by Jean Kennedy Smith), trustee of the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation, etc.
    She survived lung cancer only to die in the steam room of her health club after her daily workout.
    Her death was inevitably described as the latest manifestation of the 'Kennedy curse.'
    She died at the same age and just one day before fellow daughter-of-a-liberal-Democrat Eleanor Mondale: Coincidence or conspiracy?
    She led about as low-key a life as possible for a Kennedy, noting 'Unlike my father, I felt more comfortable behind the camera than in front of it.'
    At 42, she was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer. With her father's help, she found a surgeon who successfully removed part of her right lung.
    She ran or swam five miles a day.
    She accepted the Presidential Medal of Freedom on her father's behalf when he was too ill to attend the ceremony.
