Tuesday, a family spokesman said. She was 92.

Only the second woman in American history to have had a
husband and a son elected President (Abigail Adams was the first), Bush
was seen as a plainspoken public figure who was instantly recognizable
with her signature white hair and pearl necklaces and earrings. She
became a major political figure as her husband, George H.W. Bush, rose
to become vice president and president. After they left the White House,
she was a potent spokeswoman for two of her sons — George W. and Jeb
— as they campaigned for office.

The mother of six children — one of whom, a daughter,
Robin, died as a child from leukemia — Barbara Bush raised her
fast-growing family in the 1950s and ’60s amid the post-war boom of
Texas and the whirl of politics that consumed her husband. (CNN)
