Mrs. Bush will lie in repose from noon to midnight Friday at St. Martin's Church at 717 Sage Rd.in Houston. Visitors are asked to park at Second Baptist Church on 6400 Woodway Drive and get checked by security. Holbrook native Andrew Card, who worked in George H.W. Bush's administration, told the Boston Globe that the former first lady embodied integrity, and "was notorious for being unvarnished in her critiques".

Barbara Bush seemed she would be as comfortable riding a lawn tractor as she would be baking pies, or addressing a room full of dignitaries while raising money for cancer research.

She also disclosed a bout with depression in the mid-1970s, saying she sometimes feared she would deliberately crash her vehicle. She was diagnosed in 1988 with Graves' disease, an autoimmune disease that commonly affects the thyroid. She served only four years before her husband lost his campaign for a second term.

"To us, she was so much more".

For seven months, Barbara and her husband sat in a NY hospital as doctors struggled to treat a cancer that at the time was poorly understood.

She 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.

The George and Barbara had celebrated their 73rd wedding anniversary in January, making them the longest-married couple in presidential history. A grand lady, a great friend.she made the White House a brighter place. She will always be remembered for representing the best of America.

"Amongst her greatest achievements was recognizing the importance of literacy as a fundamental family value that requires nurturing and protection".

The wife of 41st President George H.W. Bush, and the mother of 43rd President George W. Bush, Bush was dedicated to her family, but also outspoken in advocating for causes of her choosing, like universal literacy. George H.W. began as a USA representative for Texas, where the family was from, and later became a United Nations ambassador, then the Republican Party chairman, as well as an ambassador to China.

Bush battled health problems for much of her later life. "She reminds us of a time when strong, principled people governed our country with civility, humility and grace".

U.S. Rep. Bill Flores, R-Bryan, commended Bush for her literacy efforts.

Barbara Bush was 92 years old.

"We were rambunctious a lot, pretty independent-minded kids, and, you know, she had her hands". Bush will be missed.

As a wife, mother, grandmother, military wife, former first lady, Mrs. Yet the service of her progeny to the nation goes far beyond the two presidents.

Public television is proud of its role in lifelong learning for millions of Americans, and we are keenly aware that the foundation for all of that learning is the ability to read. Barbara's interest in children and literacy, meanwhile, helped Bush commit himself to being the "education President".

After World War II, the Bushes moved to the Texas oil patch to seek their fortune and raise a family.

"I married the first man I ever kissed", Barbara used to say.

Quick-witted with a sharp tongue, the feisty Barbara Bush was a fierce defender of her husband and an astute adviser.

Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick echoed Abbott's comments.

"I know there is a great God, and I'm not anxious", she said. She leaves a substantial legacy.

In a speech in 1985, she recalled the stress of raising a family while married to a man whose ambitions carried him from the Texas oil fields to Congress and into influential political positions that included ambassador to the United Nations, GOP chairman and Central Intelligence Agency director.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton also issued a statement expressing his sympathy to the Bush family.
