Barbara Bush Passes Away, Age 92

Former first lady Barbara Bush passed away Tuesday evening from complications related to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and congestive heart failure. Earlier this week the Bush family released a statement saying that after a “recent series of hospitalizations,” she decided to stop receiving medical care and was focusing on “comfort care.”

“It will not surprise those who know her that Barbara Bush has been a rock in the face of her failing health, worrying not for herself — thanks to her abiding faith — but for others,” the statement said. “She is surrounded by a family she adores, and appreciates the many kind messages and especially the prayers she is receiving.”


She passed away at her Houston, Texas home; she was 92.
