His son, Timothy Phelps, confirmed to Kansas' WIBW that Fred Phelps died "before midnight" on Wednesday. His daughter, Shirley Phelps-Roper, also confirmed news of the death to the Topeka Capital-Journal.
A spokesperson for the Westboro Baptist Church was not immediately available for comment.

Nate Phelps, one of Fred Phelps' estranged children, wrote a Facebook post on Saturday, March 15, revealing his father was "on the edge of death at Midland Hospice house in Topeka, Kansas."
He also revealed Fred Phelps had been excommunicated from the church in August 2013.

The irony...

Westboro Baptist Church left confused by 'Sorry for your loss' counter-protest

Leave it to the power of almighty Lord to try to bring the world together. When Westboro Baptist Church members angrily picketed the singer's concert Friday in Missouri in response to her recent pro-gay comments, counter-protesters had a compassionate response: signs of condolence for the group's recently deceased pastor Fred Phelps. "Sorry for your loss," read one large poster. "Live your life and be awesome," said another.
"We realized that it wasn't so much about antagonizing them but sending out the countered safe that we are here for people who need that message and need that positivity," sign creator Megan Coleman told KSHB-TV. Her well intended message was lost in translation to some Westboro members, however. "I don't even know what they're saying," said Westboro member Steve Dralin, who is poised to be the church's next leader.
