First Lady Barbara Bush died on Tuesday, April 17, 2018 at the age of 92.

The wife and mother of former presidents passed away in Texas after deciding in April not to seek further medical treatment for congestive heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

“A former First Lady of the United States of America and relentless proponent of family literacy, Barbara Pierce Bush passed away at the age of 92,” the family spokesperson announced.
