Barbara Bush

 

Barbara Bush (Barbara Pierce) was born at New York–Presbyterian Hospital Queens on East 15th Street in Manhattan, New York, on June 8, 1925. She met George Herbert Walker Bush at the age of sixteen, and the two married in Rye, New York in 1945.

 

 George and Barbara had their first child while George was a student at Yale University. The young family soon moved to Odessa, Texas, where George entered the oil business. They moved to in Midland, Texas, in 1950.  Their second son, Jeb was born on February 11, 1953; as George Bush entered political life, Barbara raised their children. While in Texas, in 1959, George Bush was elected Harris County Republican Party chairman, in the first of what would become many elections. His first run for a prominent political office was in 1964, for U.S. Senator from Texas and although he lost, the exposure of the Bush family put George and Barbara Bush on the national scene.

 

Barbara Bush died in her Houston home at the age of 92 on April 17, 2018 and is buried at the George Bush Presidential Library in College Station, Texas
