Barbara Bush in failing health, won't seek further treatment

Barbara Bush health failing

Mrs Bush, originally from NY, championed family literacy when she served as first lady while her husband was president from 1989 to 1993.

While serving as first lady in the 1990s, she established the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy, with the aim to "Advocate for and establish literacy as a value in every home".

Former first lady Barbara Bush has endured a series of hospitalizations and has chose to halt treatment for her failing health, according to a statement from her family Sunday.

Instead, Mrs Bush who is 92, will spend her time in what has been described as "comfort care" with her family.

McGrath didn't elaborate on Bush's well being issues. She had heart surgery in 2009, and was operated on for an ulcer the year before.

"She is surrounded by a household she adores, and appreciates the numerous type messages and particularly the prayers she is receiving", it continued.

After leaving the White House, Barbara Bush and her husband retired to Houston. The other was Abigail Adams, wife of John Adams, the nation's second president, and mother of John Quincy Adams, the sixth president.

The couple left the White House after Republican president Mr Bush lost the 1992 election to Democrat Bill Clinton.

Their first daughter, Robin, died of leukemia at age 3 and is buried at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum in College Station, Texas. Bush and President Bush live their lives always putting others first. In many ways, she is America's grandmother - the rare figure who transcended politics and all the infighting.

"She never was an embarrassment", Romer said. The candid admission only bolstered her common sense and down-to-earth public image.

Born Barbara Pierce on June 8, 1925, she grew up in Rye, New York, and was 16 when she met George Bush at a school dance. The Bushes moved to Texas in the mid-1940s. To Barbara Bush, it all centered around education and giving people the tools to succeed, no matter how late in life they attempted to learn to read.

Maine Governor Paul LePage posted a tweet saying in part, "Barbara Bush is one of a kind, and she has been a wonderful friend and inspiration to so many people in Maine".
