UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY) – Wednesday, the wife of former US President George W. Bush, Senior Barbara Bush, died at the age of 92.
Previously, the American media reported that the elder Bush’s wife decided not to go to the hospital, despite the deterioration of health.
According to CNN, the ex-wife of the president suffered from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Following the reports of her condition, many politicians shared memories of and prayers and well wishes for Bush across social media, including Hillary Clinton, who on Monday said she was “thinking about Barbara Bush’s legacy of service to our country and the extraordinary family she raised.”
The Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy established a page on its website for people to send their well wishes to the former first lady.
Along with her husband, Bush was accompanied by her daughter Doro and sons Marvin and Neil. Her other sons, former President George W. Bush and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, were in and out visiting her the past week.
