  • Former First Lady ready to move on

A family spokesman said Sunday that the 92-year-old Mrs. Bush will now focus on comfort care as she deals with her failing health.

The former first lady also gave her name and support to Maine's only children's hospital, founded in 1985 - The Barbara Bush Children's Hospital at Maine Medical Center in Portland. "Bush, now age 92, has decided not to seek additional medical treatment and will instead focus on comfort care", spokesman Jim McGrath said Sunday in a news release.

Mr McGrath did not provide any further information on the nature of her illness, but confirmed she is at her home in Houston. The other was Abigail Adams, wife of John Adams and mother of John Quincy Adams.

Barbara Bush has been married to George H.W. Bush since 1945, when she was 19 and he was 20. The couple had six children.

Barbara Bush has 17 grandchildren of her own (and seven great grandchildren), but so many more felt a connection to the white-haired lady who always seemed to exude good humor and class.

Rep. Sean Maloney, D-N.Y., paid tribute to Bush as "a graceful First Lady who has dedicated her life to improving education and promoting literacy", while Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan called her "an incredible First Lady and a great American".

She is the only woman to see her husband and son sworn in as USA president. The pearls became synonymous with Bush, who later said she selected them to hide the wrinkles in her neck. Bush later said she meant "witch" and apologized; Ferraro accepted the apology. The candid admission only bolstered her common sense and down-to-earth public image.

Barbara Pierce Bush was born in Rye, N.Y. Her father was the writer of McCall's and Redbook magazines.

After the war ended the couple moves around the USA before settling in Midland, Texas, as Mr Bush pursued a career in the oil industry and eventually in politics.

Mrs. Bush has been hospitalized several times over the past year for heart and breathing issues. Proceeds from the books benefited grownup and household literacy packages.
