Same here. I know she had slowed down but not that she was ill. She was still appearing regularly on NPR. Her insights as a commentator pretty much always made you think.
Apparently it was complications to breast cancer, that's the thing about cancers usually it isn't the cancer that actually kills you but the complications. Pneumonia is a common cause of death in these cases.
NPR Link - Nice article.
Speaking of making you think, I do remember this one:
As a commentator, Roberts sometimes walked a line that threatened to eclipse her role as a dispassionate journalist. In a February 2016 op-ed co-authored with her husband, they called on "the rational wing" of the Republican Party to stop the nomination of Donald Trump. "[Trump] is one of the least qualified candidates ever to make a serious run for the presidency," Roberts and her husband wrote. "If he is nominated by a major party " let alone elected " the reputation of the United States would suffer a devastating blow around the world."
