(October 13, 1925 – April 8, 2013)
(Fox News) – Former British Prime Minister Margaret has died after
suffering a stroke. She had been ill for some time.
"It is with great sadness that Mark and Carol Thatcher announced that
their mother died peacefully this morning,” Thatcher spokesperson Lord
Bell said in a statement.
Thatcher led Britain’s Conservatives to three election victories from 1979
to 1990, the longest continuous period in office by a British prime minister
since the early 19th century. Alongside former U.S. President Ronald
Reagan, Thatcher battled against communism and saw the Berlin Wall get
torn down in 1989.
