Sarah Brady has died, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence has announced. Her husband, former press secretary James Brady, was shot in the head during the 1981 attempt on President Ronald Reagan's life.

Sarah Brady, 73, died of pneumonia, her family said. She was the chairwoman of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence from 2000 until her death.

She did a great job taking care of her husband and doing a great job of going to work on her campaign for Gun control, May she rest in peace.

Brady, 73, died in a retirement community in Alexandria, Virginia, after battling pneumonia, family members said in an email.

@jcboy,
Very sad indeed. I remember vividly the day James Brady and Ronald Reagan were shot, it was a sickening feeling. Sarah Brady was an incredibly strong woman and a wonderful example of perseverance.

She was a fine lady and I hate it that she and her husband did not achieve more, re gun control.
