30. Her father died in a small plane mishap.
In 1972, Hale Boggs & Alaska congressman Nick Begich (also D) were flying from Anchorage to Juneau. The plane disappeared & no wreckage was ever found.

Lindy Boggs won a special election to take her husband's place & was re-elected 8 times. She served as ambassador to the Vatican from 1997 to 2001.

Historical note: Hale Boggs served on the Warren Commission.
