Obituary: Barbara Bush

By: Inés Eisenhour ’19

Succeeding the popular Nancy Reagan seemed a daunting task, her exciting sense of White House glamour and showmanship required a fearlessly strong presence in its wake. Barbara Bush lived up to the task in the most humble, unanticipated way. Her matter-of-fact attitude and her relatability brought her close to the American public. A three strand faux-pearl necklace jumpstarted what would become one of the most loving and realistic relationships between a First Lady and her country since Eleanor Roosevelt. Mrs. Bush was always described as “feisty and full of life”, with her energy directed towards the protection and service of her family and country. Her legacy includes the reputable Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy and the revitalized White House Historical Fund. Her dedication and love will keep her forever known as America’s Grandmother. Bush died on April 17, 2018.
