  • Former First Lady, Lady Bird Johson passes away at 94

    After suffering a stroke a few years ago and recently being released from the hospital, Lady Bird Johnson passed away today. She was 94. You can read the complete store here.

    AUSTIN, Texas - Lady Bird Johnson, the former first lady who championed conservation and worked tenaciously for the political career of her husband, Lyndon B. Johnson, died Wednesday, a family spokeswoman said. She was 94.

    Johnson, who suffered a stroke in 2002 that affected her ability to speak, returned home late last month after a week at Seton Medical Center, where she'd been admitted for a low-grade fever.

    She died at her Austin home of natural causes and she was surrounded by family and friends, said spokeswoman Elizabeth Christian.

    Even after the stroke, Johnson still managed to make occasional public appearances and get outdoors to enjoy her beloved wildflowers. But she was unable to speak more than a few short phrases, and more recently did not speak at all, Anne Wheeler, spokeswoman for the LBJ Library and Museum, said in 2006. She communicated her thoughts and needs by writing, Wheeler said.
    Lyndon Johnson died in 1973, four years after the Johnsons left the White House.

    The longest-living first lady in history was Bess Truman, who was 97 when she died in 1982

    This is sad news. I saw Lady Bird Johnson at the Richard Nixon Library dedication in 1990 (where I also saw the Nixons, the Reagans, the Fords and George and Barbara Bush).

    Sad news. Thank you for recognizing this First Lady.

        Whenever you drive down a highway, and see wild flowers by the road, think of her--she championed the entire concept of "highway beautification", and it's paid off for all of us across the country.
