Beverly LaHaye, who was a Conservative author and activist that also founded the group Concerned Women for America, has reportedly sadly passed away at the age of 94. A cause of death has not yet been revealed for the Conservative icon.

LaHaye was born in Detroit in 1929. She married ministerial student Tim LaHaye, who was a World War Two veteran.

Concerned Women for America describes itself as “the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization,” which LaHaye founded because she reportedly wanted to form a “response to the feminist movement of the time that she believed did not speak for the majority of American women.”

In a statement released by Penny Nance, the CEO and president of Lahaye’s organization, stated on behalf of the organization,

“Mrs. LaHaye championed the forgotten women of this country, whose voices were not being heard in Washington and in the culture. Her life is a testament to the impact one woman with a vision and mission can have on the course of history.”

That statement also says that LaHaye, “worked closely with presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush as well as Members of Congress over the years,” highlighting her influence within conservative circles.

A portion of her obituary reads about her time in San Diego in 1956,

“During that time of life Beverly had the opportunity to hear from a well-known Christian speaker who taught on the importance of being filled with the Holy Spirit. She was introduced to the concept that walking in the Spirit meant full dependence on Christ, no matter what she was called to do.

She was challenged to commit all aspects of her life … her marriage, her parenting, her fears, and her insecurities, into the hands of her Savior. This teaching changed her world.”
