Condolence & Memory Journal

Mrs. Schlafly will remain a role model for me throughout life. I had the opportunity to meet her in Connecticut decades ago, while I was still young, and I do believe I had the privilege of bringing her in my vehicle to or from the conference I attended with her as guest speaker. My mother Judy D. Snow who was born a year ahead of her contemporary icon (d. 3/6/13) introduced me to her work on behalf of women. I have admired her work and her promotion of Eagle Forum. Mrs. Schlafly epitomized all that is best of female intuition, common sense, unfailing labor and unparalled protection of our most vulnerable, families and their children. I hope she has a great reward for her valiant fight.

I am new to Phyllis'struggle; but that doesn't make me stupid. What it does do is make me appreciate more what she stood for and what she accomplished! So I never met her. Never got to appreciate her company. Never was able to enjoy her discourse one on one. Even so, I have been able to read her writings, read what others have written about her, and bottom line? I miss someone I have never had the privilege to meet! It's like saying "I never met George Washington but I miss him"? Really? Well, it might help if you understand that I am retired military ( Submarine Service) and as a consequence, it is easier for me to identify with those who place others ahead of self. I wish I had the privilege to have met her. Phyllis has earned my highest regards and her family has my sincere condolences.

What a clear voice for doing the right thing in life! America needs more strong women like her to know the difference between right and wrong and to have the ability to verbalize it.

In the early 1970's, Phyllis Schlafly personally answered the phone the day I called her at home to ask her to help us fight the ERA out here in RI. Although we had never met or spoken previously, she agreed immediately to fly out and testify at RI's first televised legislative hearing, where she did her usual amazing job ticking off the arguments against the ERA, arguments which would never be successfully refuted. She returned another time to debate a feminist at Brown University, and was totally unflappable despite being treated very rudely by students banging on the doors and windows and turning their backs on her. Our family was privileged to host her overnight in our home, where we and our five children were blessed by her presence as she joined us for breakfast around our table. I loved Phyllis -- an unforgettable woman who possessed great faith, courage, perseverance and wisdom. "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints." Psalm 116:15

It is never easy to say goodbye to dear ones.
Phyllis was a dear mentor, friend and an amazing lady whom I admired and was proud to know and then be a part of her organization as state leader for Montana Eagle Forum. She never hesitated to call and offer her personal help and wise advise as we "restarted" Montana Eagle Forum in 2002, and as a personal friend who was so kind to my husband and I when we lost our daughters. God didn't make many like Phyllis, what a blessing to have had her in our life. She will be missed. May she rest in the arms of Christ whom she loved deeply.

At the age of 16,I was introduced to Phyllis Schlafly by my conservative mother and her friends. For 53 years since then, I have watched her valiant stand for God and our Republic. She fought the good fight, in the arena where there are so many sharks, and every time, she prevailed!

I'm proud to have fought against the con-con with her in the 80s, and proud to have written about her and her stands for righteousness so many times.

We will miss this patriotic woman whose spine of steel forged a great organization. Eagle Forum will now be led by Phyllis's brilliant chosen successor, Ed Martin.

Ed's leadership will guide us to continue Phyllis's standards and the battle for our country.

We mourn the loss of this great lady, but heaven is surely rejoicing.

To her family and friends, we ask the Lord to bless you with wonderful memories of this dear woman, and to give you that peace that passes all human understanding during this time of grief and loss.

We shall see her again! God be praised.

She was so intelligent and persuasive,our group "The League of Housewives" joined with her Eagle Forum and have followed her leadership ever since. After 40 plus years she never disappointed us.

I know that we all mourn her loss, but heaven is rejoicing that she's come home. The banquet in heaven for this dear woman was surely a magnificent celebration.

Many tears have been shed; our lives will never be the same again.
We thank God for her leadership and all she did to educate us and motivate us.
She was born on a very special day - the Feast of the Assumption of our Blessed Mother into heaven. Phyllis was no doubt destined to do great things.
She went to her heavenly home on Labor Day which was fitting as she labored tirelessly for the Lord, for the family, and for the country we all love.
She was courageous to endorse Donald Trump and for so doing she will especially be remembered; many are very grateful to her for this.
Phyllis was an inspiration; when we became discouraged her encouragement kept us fighting for that which is right. She will never be forgotten.
Blessings to all who have truly loved her.

We join with millions of Americans in expressing sadness at the loss of Phyllis Schlafly, a national icon.

We had the great pleasure and blessing of being with Phyllis and getting to know her during her annual visits to Naples Florida. We always marveled at her ability to instruct and inform us, in plain language, on the issues of the day - amazing every single guest at the Eagle Forum luncheons with her wit and sharpness that belied her age. These gatherings always included our area's leading conservative students, who will carry forth her message for years to come.

We loved watching Phyllis's beautiful beaming smile as she graced our annual Naples St. Patrick's Day parade.

Phyllis served as a national leader in America's conservative movement for over 50 years. Throughout these years, she selflessly dedicated her life to preserving America and its core values for future generations. Her grassroots leadership gave our country and the free world the Presidency and accomplishments of her dear friend, Ronald Reagan. We are forever in her debt.

Phyllis Schlafly was a personal hero to us. She was the wind beneath our wings. We loved her. We miss her.

She will live on in the work we all do to keep her vision alive. Her support for Donald Trump means so much to me, it shows how she loved America and Americans - and how smart and courageous she was. Truly unique and a role model for women, a real role model.

Thank you, Phyllis, for putting God first in everything you did and for standing up for family values. Thank you for equipping me with your knowledge through all the work you did, so that I too can keep fighting the good fight for traditional values.

Phyllis dedicated her life to being the Lord's servant to her family and country. I am grateful for everything she has done for everyone, for which nothing was ever asked in return. Whatever perfections she could not achieve in life are now hers. She is now perfect in every way.

Thank you for what you did for our country, Mrs. Schlafly. I consider it one of the greatest honors my life to have known you, spent time with you, and worked under you as a young woman. I cannot imagine the conservative movement without you!

It is frightful to envision an America denied the following benefits of her lifelong activism for traditional families and for military strength: the pro-life platform of the Republican party, the miraculous defeat of the ERA, blocking federal child care, phonics in education, anti-missile defense, fighting judicial tyranny, etc., etc. Her gifted and untiring leadership and her colossal amount of writing and speaking will never be equaled. Two of my most cherished memories are introducing Phyllis at one talk and eating a box lunch with her at another, both in Michigan.

Dear Andy,

Our prayers and sympathy are with you at this time. Your mother was "the" pro-life champion of her time and an inspiration to millions. Your leadership of the Legal Center for Defense of Life now mirrors her ardor. God bless the Schlaflys!

Dear Liza, Joe, Juliet, Maria, and Alexander, I am so sorry for your loss. Your mother (grandmother) was an inspiration to all of us in her diligience, perseverence and sheer brilliance. Regardless of whether one agreed or disagreed with her political stance, we can all agree she was extraordinariliy prolific and her years of work and dedication to her causes went far longer than most people would consider or imagine. I am proud that I knew her as a neighbor and a friend. She is a role model to which we can all aspire.
