Post reporter Donnie Radcliffe

We received the sad news that Donnie Radcliffe, a Washington Post journalist who chronicled first ladies and high society from the Watergate era to the Clinton administration, died Friday at her home in South Acworth, N.H. She was 80 and had lung, thyroid and adrenal cancer, her son said.
Here is her last article published in The Post. With the headline "Washington in the '80s: All Dressed Up and Someplace to Go," she and Roxanne Roberts chronicled what they called the "glamour days" of the Reagan administration.
A full obituary for Mrs. Radcliffe is coming shortly.
