Missouri is mourning Irene Treppler, former Missouri State Senator.
Her greatest contribution to Missouri was Potty Parity, a law that "requires the same number of toilets for women as there are toilets and urinals for men."
You can read more information here. What I find most interesting is her cause of death: a result of "complications from dementia at her home."
I don't want to think too much about what that might mean. If it was just a normal accident, like "fell down the steps," they'd have said that. What did she do? Try to climb on the roof? I want to know a little less than I don't want to know.
