Former First Lady of USA, Barbara Bush, Dies at Age 92
Barbara Bush, former first lady of USA and wife of former President George HW Bush, has died due to illness at 92 years of age in the early hours of Wednesday morning. The family had released a statement on Sunday of how her health was deteriorating and had refused to seek any more medical treatment for her congestive heart failure. A statement was released from George H.W. Bush’s office:
“A former first lady of the United States of America and relentless proponent of family literacy, Barbara Pierce Bush passed away Tuesday, April 17, 2018, at the age of 92.”
She had been, at her time, quite popular and is hailed as one of the most popular first ladies to reside in the White House. She may have even had more public favor than even her husband, the President. She was also the only first lady to have experienced her husband and son get sworn in the Oval Office, other than Abigail Adams. She even wrote a memoir “Barbara Bush: A Memoir” which talked about some of her controversial views and other matters she never discussed publicly before.
Barbara Bush was known to be steel-willed and determined. She was intelligent and worked to promote education. Her preference, however, was to focus on her family rather than her family’s political activities. She spoke her mind and did not let anyone steer her in a direction she did not want to take. She was definitely a prominent personality not just politically but also as her family’s matriarch. Former President Barack Obama also released a statement on the passing of history’s one of most prominent first ladies the US has had:
