Barbara Bush, matriarch of American political dynasty, dies at 92

Barbara Bush, who was the wife of one president and the mother of another and whose embrace of her image as America’s warmhearted grandmother belied her influence and mettle, died April 17. She was 92.

The office of her husband, former president George H.W. Bush, issued a statement announcing her death but did not disclose the cause. Mrs. Bush was reportedly battling chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and congestive heart failure. Her family announced on April 15 that she had “decided not to seek additional medical treatment” after recent hospitalizations amid her “failing health.”
