Just heard on CNN that she has lost a battle with Pancreatic cancer.

Third woman into space, at that time she was also breaking the age barrier, being the youngest American to go into space at age 32 on STS-7 (Challenger).

I was wondering how she'd died as I didn't think she was that old... Very sad.

Sixty-one isn't old. I had recalled she was slightly older than my dad, but never could remember how much.
