Elizabeth Edwards died of cancer today at age 61.  She was the strong woman behind 2004's Presidential Candidate John Edwards before the world learned of his infidelity.

"Elizabeth did not want people to say she lost her battle with cancer. The battle was about living a good life and that she won."
