Former First Lady Barbara Bush, a pillar of strength, dignity and class, has died at home, of natural causes, at 92.
During her White House years she passionately championed the cause of literacy, winning the respect and admiration of many from both sides of the political divide, and the international community.
Known affectionately as “The Enforcer” to her beloved family members for her exacting standards, she is survived by her husband, Former President Herbert Walker Bush, and her many children and grand children, including Former Governor Jeb Bush, and Former President George Walker Bush.
She was the only First Lady in American History to live to see one of her children elected to the office of the Presidency (Abigail Adams, a close second, died before her son, John Quincy Adams, won the Presidency.)
