    She went by her middle name as her first name was Stanley.

    Both of her marriages ended in divorce.
    Though she gave Obama religious material to read in Christianity, Hindi and Buddhism, she herself was agnostic/atheist.
    She was a distant cousin of Dick Cheney.
    She was named Stanley because her father desperately wanted a boy.
    She earned a Ph.D. from the University of Hawaii.
    She selflessly allowed Obama to move in with her parents so his education wouldn't suffer while she lived in Indonesia to study anthropology.
    She gave Obama written speeches of Martin Luther King, Jr. and encouraged him to follow his own dreams.
    She remained on friendly terms with her ex-husbands and made sure both her kids stayed connected with them.
    Obama states his passion for a better health care program stems from watching his cancer stricken mom become 'more worried about paying her medical bills than getting well.'
    Spreading her ashes over the Pacific Ocean, Obama stated his biggest regret was not being there when his mother died.
    Obama calls his mother 'the dominant figure in my formative years...values she taught me continue to be my touchstone when it comes to how I go about the world of politics.'
