Barbara Bush

 

 

Age: 92

 

Summary: former first lady of the United States from 1989 to 1993 and mother of former U.S. President George W. Bush whose plain-spoken manner and lack of pretense made her more popular at times than her husband President George H. W. Bush, who brought a grandmotherly style to buttoned-down Washington, often appearing in her trademark fake pearl chokers and displaying no vanity about her white hair and wrinkles, whom the couple were married on January 6, 1945 and had the longest marriage of any presidential couple in American history, who was one of only two first ladies who had a child who was elected president (the other was Abigail Adams, the wife of John Adams and mother of John Quincy Adams).
