Bush were some of the greatest cheerleaders for the ones they loved and cared for, leaving a lasting memory of service that spanned generations.

She said she wanted to spend her last days in "comfort care" with her family.

Before serving as first lady, she served as second lady from 1981 to 1989.

George W. Bush, now 71 and the nation's 43rd president, served from 2001-09 and retired to Dallas. President Bush's favorite was the Peking duck while Mrs.

Bush had an independent streak and could be sharp-tongued.

From the longest-serving first lady Eleanor Roosevelt's efforts in support of women's rights and racial equality to Laura Bush's work with women in the Middle East, the new exhibit celebrates not only the female leaders who have gracefully made a mark on American politics, but also the many ways the role has changed.

At the time, she said she was more interested in running a household than in helping her husband run the country.

The first couple specifically mentioned Bush's devotion to reading: "Amongst her greatest achievements was recognizing the importance of literacy as a fundamental family value that requires nurturing and protection". The other was Abigail Adams, wife of John Adams and mother of John Quincy Adams.

Her husband, the 41st United States president, is 93-years-old.


Throughout a long life in the public eye, Bush was a fierce advocate for her husband and sons, including former Florida governor and presidential candidate Jeb Bush.

Mrs. Bush is known for her white hair and her triple-strand fake pearl necklace. In addition to George W. and Jeb, the other Bush children were sons Neil and Marvin and daughter Dorothy. "Also, George Bush has given me the world".

Mrs Bush married George HW Bush on January 6 1945.

After the George H.W. Bush Library was established in College Station, Tex., the family had Robin's body moved to a small, gated burial plot on the grounds.

She told reporters that Geraldine Ferraro, her husband's Democratic rival for the vice presidency, was a "4 million dollar".

"My dear mother has passed on at age 92", her president-son said in a statement.

In her 1994 autobiography, "Barbara Bush: A Memoir", she said she did her best to keep her opinions from the public while her husband was in office.

But during her husband's 1992 re-election race, which he lost to Democrat Bill Clinton, she told reporters that abortion and homosexuality were "personal things" that should be left out of political conventions and party platforms. "Hillary and I mourn her passing and bless her memory".

Opinion polls often showed her popularity as first lady exceeding her husband's as president. "She said this would happen very quickly". "That's because I'm everyone's grandma".
