Barbara Bush Dies at 92

Former first lady Barbara Bush, the second woman in US history to be a wife and mother of a US president, died at age 92. Her death was announced by the office of her husband. She had been in failing health, suffering from congestive heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. After a series of hospitalizations, including one in early 2017 when she and her husband were both patients at Houston Methodist Hospital, she decided not to seek further medical treatment, the family announced Sunday, CNBC reported. The official funeral schedule includes a public event on Friday and a private event on Saturday. She and her husband, George H.W. Bush, the 41st US president, were married longer than any presidential couple in American history, 73 years. Eight years after they left the White House, Mrs. Bush stood with her husband as their son George W. was sworn in as the 43rd president. Only Abigail Adams, wife of John Adams and mother of John Quincy Adams, holds a similar place in American history.
