Barbara Bush, the wife of President George Bush, departed the earth on April 17, 2018. Birthing six children, Barbara entered her eternal rest knowing the life she lived left a legacy. Although she had continuous treatment and hospital stays, Barbara still remained persistent, always caring for others’ interests and the United States.

Barbara attended Rye Country Day private school and later studied at Smith College. Soon after ceasing her attendance at the Massachusetts college, she married George Bush, who had returned serving in World War II as a navy torpedo pilot, molding their relationship into an event greater union.

Barbara Bush birthed six children and all survived her but one. Experiencing a heart-felt tragedy, the Bushes lost their baby girl Robin at age three.

Robin suffered from terminal leukemia with the only hope of resting comfortable through her final days. The passing of their child created hardship for the couple, but both Barbara and George persevered as life brought them new challenges.

To this day, the first lady remains only the second first lady to have a son and a husband, both who served as United States president. Barbara campaigned for each of her family members from her husband George to her son Jeb,  a presidential candidate in 2017.

Mrs. Bush believed that enough Bushes served in the White House, but this concern faded when her son Jeb ran for President late last year. In poor health, Barbara nevertheless accompanied him while campaigning, shaking the hands of many, vouching for her son’s talents and abilities.

Notwithstanding another Bush residing in the White House, Barbara took into account others critical needs and their wants. Unlike some candidate family members who act indifferent and uncaring toward the public, her personality shined with compassion and care as she extended her hands to many.

Barbara, before passing, received questions regarding her fear of death, but her rebuttal rang clear as she stated her beliefs. Psalm 23, verse 4 states, “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me: your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” Barbara attained firm faith throughout her life, bringing ease to her and assuring her of her final destination.

A beloved, revered lady, may Barbara Bush forever find eternal rest.
