Margaret Thatcher Dies; Remade Britain
By ALAN COWELL

LONDON — Margaret Thatcher, a towering, divisive and yet revered figure 
who left an enduring impact on British politics, died on Monday of a 
stroke, her family said.

“It is with great sadness that Mark and Carol Thatcher announced that 
their mother Baroness Thatcher died peacefully following a stroke this 
morning,” a statement from her spokesman, Lord Tim Bell, said.

Lady Thatcher had been in poor health for months. She served as prime 
minister for 11 years, beginning in 1979. She was known variously as the 
‘Iron Lady,’ a stern Conservative who transformed Britain’s way of 
thinking about its economic and political life, broke union power and 
opened the way to far greater private ownership.

She was leader of Britain through its 1982 war in the Falklands and 
stamped her skepticism about European integration onto her country’s 
political landscape for decades.
