First Female Attorney General of US dies at 78

Janet Reno, a former U.S. attorney general under President Bill Clinton, died Monday morning following a long battle with Parkinson’s disease, her sister Maggy Hurchalla said. She was 78.


Reno, the nation’s first-ever female attorney general, served in the Clinton White House from 1993 to 2001.

Born in 1938, Reno grew up in Miami, Florida, with parents who both worked as reporters for Miami newspapers. After attending Cornell University for her undergraduate degree, Reno enrolled at Harvard University for law school in the early 1960s.

Reno died at her home in Miami. She had battled with Parkinson’s disease for 20 years
