Patricia Frustaci made headlines in May 1985 when she welcomed seven children – four boys and three girls – at a San Diego hospital. The babies’ arrival was said to be the largest multiple births in the United States at that time.

The former English teacher died on February 10, Joseph said, at a San Diego hospital from complications with pulmonary fibrosis. She was 63.

Joseph, who was four when his seven brothers and sisters were born, told the Mercury News that he thinks the fame his mother received from giving birth to the septuplets took a toll on her.
