Anne Cox Chambers, the billionaire heiress of Cox Enterprises and former U.S. ambassador during the Carter era, has died, her family’s company confirmed. She was 100.
“My aunt leaves behind a remarkable legacy for our family and the many organizations she generously supported with her time and financial gifts,” Jim Kennedy, Chambers’ nephew and the Chairman of Cox Enterprises, said on the company’s website.
“Aunt Anne was a wonderful, kind and elegant lady who cared deeply about her family, her company and her country,” Kennedy added to the AJC. “She took the responsibility of good fortune very seriously and gave back to the best of her ability to the many causes she cared about.”
