STATEMENT FROM PRESIDENTIAL HISTORIAN CRAIG SHIRLEY ON THE PASSING OF FORMER FIRST LADY BARBARA PIERCE BUSH

April 17, 2018

ALEXANDRIA, VA — Barbara Bush wasn’t called the Silver Fox for nothing. Beautiful, smart, elegant, tough, witty, this Mother of all Bushes brought charm and grace to the White House and everything she touched or whatever setting in which she he moved. Through her years as both wife and mother to Presidents of the United States, she stayed loyal and faithful to her family and to her country, bettering all she could through her actions and words.

Her legacy is secure. Her monuments are her marriage to President George H.W. Bush and her marvelous children.

The Bushes were born blood donors, welcoming all kindly, into their homes and their lives.

My wife Zorine and I mourn the passing of this very Great Lady.

RIP Barbara Pierce Bush.
