One thought on “R.I.P.

  1. I would have liked to have known her!

    Ms. Mondale found her way into the gossip columns at an early age. In 1977, when she was 17, she attracted the attention of photographers when she wore a tuxedo to an inaugural ball for President Jimmy Carter.


    Ms. Mondale and Mr. Poling lived on a small farm, where they kept a menagerie of animals, including horses, dogs, cats, a cockatoo and chickens, according to a brief 2005 profile in Country Living magazine. The chickens were kept in a corner of the barn decorated with an antique chandelier and rigged with a Bose stereo system that played classical music. Ms. Mondale told the magazine that the setup “emphasizes the ‘culture’ in agriculture” and called the barn “Cluckingham Palace.”

    Sadly, so damn young.
