Barbara Bush, Wife of 41 and Mother of 43, Dies at 92

Barbara Bush, the widely admired wife of one president and the fiercely loyal mother of
another, died Tuesday evening at her home in Houston. She was 92.

Jim McGrath, a family spokesman, announced the death in a statement posted to Twitter.

On Sunday, the office of her husband, former President George Bush, issued a statement
saying that after consulting her family and her doctors, Mrs. Bush had “decided not to seek
additional medical treatment and will instead focus on comfort care.”

The Bushes had celebrated their 73rd wedding anniversary in January, making them the
longest-married couple in presidential history.

Mrs. Bush had been hospitalized with pneumonia in December 2013. She underwent surgery
for a perforated ulcer in 2008 and had heart surgery four months later.

As the wife of the 41st president and the mother of the 43rd, George W. Bush, Mrs. Bush
was only the second woman in American history to have a son of hers follow his father to
the White House. (Abigail Adams, wife of John Adams and mother of John Quincy Adams,
was the first.)

@Region Philbis,
She was a grand old gal, and she will be well remembered.
