Sad News from the National Review Family

Patricia Aldyn Austin Taylor Buckley — Pat Buckley, as so many knew her, WFB’s beloved — died last night at Stamford Hospital in Connecticut.

She died of septic poisoning following a vascular operation on her left leg.

Pat had been married to WFB since July 1950 and is mother of the acclaimed writer Christopher Buckley.

She’s been a core part of the NR family — hosting editorial dinners in her home, among many other intrusions — since its conception and her loss will be felt by many.

Bill and Christopher are in so many of our prayers today. R.I.P, Mrs. Buckley.
