Former US first lady Rosalynn Carter has died at 96

Recommended Posts



Rosalynn Carter, the former first lady and one-half of the longest presidential marriage in U.S. history, who was a pillar of her husband’s presidency and a trailblazing mental health advocate, has died at the age of 96.

According to a release from the Carter Center, she died peacefully, with family by her side.

Rosalynn was diagnosed with dementia in May, and it was announced on Nov. 17 that she had entered hospice. At the time, the Carter Center said she and her husband, former President Jimmy Carter, were "spending time with each other and their family."

The Carter Center has published a tribute page in her honor.

RIP, she was a kind soul, along with her husband. I don't imagine Jimmy Carter will be with us for too much longer given this loss.
