BREAKING: A Beloved First Lady Has Died

( – BREAKING NOW: Just moments ago, it was announced that former First Lady Rosalynn Carter has passed away.

The New York Post notes in its reporting:

“Former first lady Rosalynn Carter, the wife of 39th President Jimmy Carter, died on Nov. 19 at the age of 96.

“Her family announced in May 2023 that she had been diagnosed with dementia and she later joined the former president on hospice care at their Plains home in November.

“Eleanor Rosalynn Smith was born in the small town of Plains, Georgia — the same town as her future husband — on Aug. 18, 1927, and was the eldest of four children.”

As for her time as First Lady, The Post notes:

“As first lady, she was a strong presence in the White House — dubbed by the DC Press as “the Steel Magnolia” for her uniquely strong nature mixed with the stereotypical grace of a Southern political wife.

“She expanded the role of the first lady, working out of her own office in the East Wing, with her own staff, on her own initiatives. She also sat in on top-level meetings with the president’s advisers, raising eyebrows among the capital’s elite.”
