Primera Dama Violeta Correa died on Friday at the age of 74. Se was the second wife of President Fernando Belaunde. She was Belaunde's better half, in the full sense of the word. Receptive to the dispossessed, the needy, "los desamparados" en Spanish. She allied herself closely with the "soup kitchen" movement in Lima shantytowns. While Belaunde was patrician and aloof, she was earthy and pragmatic. She was the best First Lady that Peru has ever had.
