Former US first lady Barbara Bush dead at 92

A top NY doctor says former first lady Barbara Bush's decision to stop aggressive treatment for lung and heart disease at 92 is "a valiant one".

She had been married to her husband for 73 years. See below for more tributes to the former first lady - who was one of only two women in history to be both the wife and mother of a US president.

Barbara Bush is spending her time surrounded by people she loves, drinking bourbon, and we love her for that.

Barbara and George have been married the longest of any presidential couple in US history.

CBS also temporarily published Barbara Bush's obituary but had to quickly delete the article, which read "Do not publish".

Barbara Bush's dedication to keeping order at home earned her the nickname "the enforcer".

The Bushes had celebrated their 73rd wedding anniversary in January 2018.

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

As she and her husband ascended to the top of the White House, Barbara used the weight of her family name to develop the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy.

Bush said he'd been re-reading his mom's memoir to her and has new appreciation for the memories she shared.

"I chose literacy because I honestly believe that if more people could read, write, and comprehend, we would be that much closer to solving so numerous problems that plague our nation and our society", she said.

Bush reportedly had been battling chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and congestive heart problems in recent years.

What certainly got attention in the Bush White House of 1989-1992 was Barbara's positions on hot topic issues such as abortion and homosexuality. She has been a fixture of American politics and the Bush dynasty for decades. She saw that 35 million adults at that time could not read past an eighth-grade level.

The couple were engaged before her husband left to fly in World War 2. On Sunday, family spokesman Jim McGrath had announced that her health was failing and that she had declined any further medical intervention.

George HW Bush, who served as the 41st U.S. president from 1989-93, suffers from a form of Parkinson's disease and uses a wheelchair. "She said this would happen very quickly". Both were written from the perspective of a family dog.

Barbara leaves behind her husband George, five children, fourteen grandchildren, and seven great-grandchildren.

Asked in a 2013 interview about the prospect that her younger son, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, might mount a White House campaign in 2016, Bush quipped in her dry fashion, "We've had enough Bushes".
