Funeral services are being held Friday for Eunice Kennedy Shriver.

The sister of President John F. Kennedy and Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., died Tuesday at the age of 88.
Shriver founded the Special Olympics and is credited with changing the way Americans treat the mentally disabled.
She also supported several pro-life groups.     

"She was a great inspiration to many pro-life groups," said Marjorie Dannenfelser, President and Chairman of the Board of the Susan B. Anthony List. "She had a special niche at the Susan B. Anthony List early on in our evolution. She just had a strong conviction of the biblical promise from Christ that what you do to the least of mine you do to me."

Mrs. Shriver is survived by her husband Robert Sargent Shriver, Jr., five children, and 19 grandchildren.
