FORMER FIRST LADY HAS DIED AT 94


President Ronald Reagan and the First Lady, Nancy Reagan.


Nancy Davis Reagan
(born Anne Frances Robbins)
(July 6, 1921 – March 6, 2016)

(FoxNews) – Nancy Reagan, the widow of President Ronald Reagan and
passionately devoted keeper of his flame, died Sunday from congestive
heart failure
at her home in Bel-Air.

Reagan, whose husband died in 2004, had appeared frail after suffering
several falls in recent years. In May 2012 it was disclosed she had broken
several ribs in a fall at her Los Angeles home six weeks earlier.

Although she initially worked as an actress, the former first lady was, first
and foremost, Mrs. Ronald Reagan.
