SEATTLE (AP) — Dorlee Rainey, the self-described “old lady in combat boots” who became a symbol of the Occupy protest movement, was photographed after Seattle police pepper sprayed her. She was 95.
The longtime political activist died on August 12, the Seattle Times reported. Her daughter, Gabriela Rainey, told the newspaper that her mom was “so active because she loved this country and she wanted to make sure the country was good for its people.”
