Barbara Bush, 92, Former First Lady, Dies

Barbara Bush, former first lady of President George H.W. Bush and mother of President George W. Bush, died Tuesday at her Houston home after a long illness. She was 92.

Bush decided over the weekend to not undergo further medical treatment, opting instead to focus on comfort care.

Bush and her husband George H.W. Bush, the nation’s 41st commander in chief, celebrated their 73rd wedding anniversary in January, making them the longest-married couple in presidential history. Their son, George W. Bush, served as the country’s 43rd president.

She was just the second woman in history to have had a son and husband ascend to the presidency, after Abigail Adams in the 1800s.
