"Dear Abby" columnist Pauline Phillips, who starting in 1956 under the pen name Abigail Van Buren began giving some 90 million newspaper readers advice on everything from Civil Rights to dating, died Wednesday in Minneapolis, said a family spokesperson. She was 94.

"She'll be terribly missed by the people who love her. She'll always be in my heart. She had an irreverent sense of humor. She left an amazing legacy," daughter Jeanne Phillips tells PEOPLE.

"I'm honored that she trusted me enough to let me continue her column for her. I feel very empty today. It's a very sad day."
