Eleanor Mondale, the feisty media personality and daughter of former Vice President Walter Mondale and his wife Joan, died early Saturday of brain cancer, which she had battled on and off for six years.
In June 2005, Mondale married Minneapolis musician Chan Poling, a founding member of The Suburbs. Previously, she was briefly married to Keith Van Horne, formerly of the Chicago Bears, and WLOL DJ Greg Thunder (Greg Malban).
Our thoughts go out to the entire Mondale family.
Someone told me once that a parent should never have to go through the loss of a child. I believe them.
