On December 18, 2020 US President-elect Joe Biden marked the 48th anniversary of the accident that killed his first wife and baby daughter by attending Mass in Delaware at St. Joseph on the Brandywine, a Roman Catholic church. Neilia Biden and the couple’s 13-month old daughter, Naomi, were killed when their car was struck by a tractor-trailer as she took the kids to pick out a Christmas tree.
