Barbara Bush, the matriarch of an American political dynasty spanning decades who was the second American to be both the first lady and the mother of a president, died Tuesday. She was 92.
Her death was confirmed by Jim McGrath, a spokesman for the Bush family.
A family spokesman said Sunday that Bush wouldn’t seek any further medical treatment after a series of recent hospitalizations.
Bush was married for 73 years to the nation’s 41st president, George H.W. Bush, and was the mother of the 43rd president, George W. Bush; another son, Jeb, is a former governor of Florida. She was considered an asset on the campaign trail, known for her wit and her emphasis on family.
