Eunice Kennedy Shriver was mourned at a funeral and burial in Hyannis, Mass., on Friday, in ceremonies that drew from the worlds of entertainment and politics, as well as the Special Olympics, the organization she founded.
Her husband, Sargent Shriver, was present, along with their four sons and daughter, Maria, there with her husband Arnold Schwarzenegger.
"Mummy wore men's pants, smoked Cuban cigars and she played tackle
football," Maria Shriver said in a eulogy. "Our mother never rested, she never stopped. She
was momentum on wheels."
Also present were Oprah Winfrey, Jon Bon Jovi and Stevie Wonder. Bono sent three Irish musicians to sing at the service, and they led the group in a rendition of Bob Dylan's "Forever Young."
More here from the AP. Here's coverage of Maria Shriver's eulogy as well as a remembrance at a service on Thursday from Robert Kennedy Jr. He recalls a story of Eunice Shriver rushing from a trip to Egg Island off the Cape to make ceremony at the Kennedy Center in Washington, where she was to introduce President Gerald Ford. She didn't have time to change — and made the entire trip in her bathing suit.
