Dear Abby has died. I remember, as a little kid, reading her columns in the Sunday papers. My Mom would cut each article out and place it in a photo album. That album is in a box of items I have kept that were my Moms…I never read thru ALL the Dear Abby columns and don’t intend to do so now. Her sister was Ann Landers- and yes, my Mom collected her columns as well.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Pauline Friedman Phillips, who as Dear Abby dispensed snappy, sometimes saucy advice on love, marriage and meddling mothers-in-law to millions of newspaper readers around the world and opened the way for the likes of Dr. Ruth, Dr. Phil and Oprah, has died. She was 94.
