Barbara Bush dies at 92



Former First Lady Barbara Bush.

Barbara Bush, former first Lady, died Tuesday in her house in Houston. She was 92 years old.

The celebrated Republican matriarch was the wife of former president George Bush and mother of another former president George W. Bush. Jim McGrath, a spokesman for the Bush family, announced the death in a statement posted to Twitter.

“A former First Lady of the United States and relentless proponent of family literacy, Barbara Pierce Bush passed away Tuesday, April 17, 2018 at the age of 92. She is survived by her husband of 73 years, President George H. W. Bush; five children and their spouses; 17 grandchildren; seven great grandchildren; and her brother, Scott Pierce,” read part of the statement.

On Sunday, the office of her husband issued a statement saying that after consulting with her family and doctors, Mrs. Bush had “decided not to seek additional medical treatment and will instead focus on comfort care.”

Mrs. Bush was a respected woman from both sides of the aisle, whose legacy to American politics is only comparable to that of Abigail Adams (wife of John Adams and mother of John Quincy Adams).

Mrs. Bush had been hospitalized in 2013 due to pneumonia, and she had underwent surgery in 2008 due to a perforated ulcer and had heart surgery a few months later.

Mr. McGrath announced through the statement that, “the official funeral schedule will be announced as soon as it is practical.”

Barbara Bush muere a los 92 años

 

La ex Primera Dama, Barbara Bush.

Barbara Bush, ex primera dama, murió el martes en su casa en Houston. Tenía 92 años.

La célebre matriarca republicana era la esposa del ex presidente George Bush y madre de otro ex presidente George W. Bush. Jim McGrath, vocero de la familia Bush, anunció la muerte en un comunicado publicado en Twitter.

“Ex Primera Dama de los Estados Unidos y defensora implacable de la alfabetización familiar, Barbara Pierce Bush falleció el martes 17 de abril de 2018 a la edad de 92 años. Le sobreviven su esposo de 73 años, el expresidente George H. W. Bush; cinco niños y sus cónyuges; 17 nietos; siete bisnietos; y su hermano, Scott Pierce”, lee parte de la declaración.

El domingo, la oficina de su esposo emitió un comunicado en el que decía que después de consultar con su familia y sus médicos, la señora Bush había “decidido no buscar tratamiento médico adicional y se centraría en buscar su comodidad”.

La señora Bush era una mujer respetada por parte de ambos partidos, cuyo legado a la política estadounidense es solo comparable al de Abigail Adams (esposa de John Adams y madre de John Quincy Adams).

La Sra. Bush había sido hospitalizada en 2013 debido a una neumonía, y se había sometido a una cirugía en 2008 debido a una úlcera perforada y operado del corazón unos meses después.

El Sr. McGrath anunció a través de la declaración que “el cronograma oficial del funeral se anunciará tan pronto como sea práctico”.
