Family, friends and politicians mourned the death of Barbara Bush Tuesday night, recalling the former first lady for her dedication to her country and family.

The matriarch of the Bush family, Barbara Bush was the second woman to ever have her husband and son both serve as president. She is remembered by her family for her passion, sense of humor and commitment to causes she was passionate about.

“Barbara Bush was a fabulous First Lady and a woman unlike any other who brought levity, love, and literacy to millions,” Former President George W. Bush said in a statement. “To us, she was so much more. Mom kept us on our toes and kept us laughing until then.”

A family spokesman announced Tuesday night that Barbara Bush died at age 92. She had been hospitalized multiple times throughout the past year, and recently decided against seeking additional medical treatment.

President Trump recalled Bush for her commitment to spreading literacy, and as an “advocate of the American family.” He ordered flags be flown at half staff in her honor.

“She will be long remembered for her strong devotion to country and family, both of which she served unfailingly well,” Trump said in a statement.
