Agustina del Carmen Castro Ruz, the youngest sibling of Fidel and Raśl Castro, died on Sunday in Cuba. She was 78.
The cause was complications of an operation she recently had after fracturing a hip, her sister Juanita Castro said, adding that Agustina had been in poor health for more than a year.
Agustina Castro, the youngest of seven siblings, never served in the Cuban government and kept a low profile, in contrast to her two brothers, who have collectively run the country for nearly 60 years. Her sister Juanita is a prominent member of the Cuban-American activist community in South Florida.
Fidel Castro died in November at 90, a little over a decade after he stepped down as president of Cuba, citing severe illness. Raśl Castro, who succeeded him, turns 86 in June.
