Rosalynn Carter, the former first lady of the United States, has passed away at the age of 96. She died peacefully in her hometown of Plains, Georgia with her family by her side. Carter was a tireless advocate for social issues and had a significant impact on policy during her husband’s presidency.
In May, it was revealed that Carter was suffering from dementia and she received palliative care at home. Her husband, Jimmy Carter, who served as President from 1977 to 1981, also received palliative care at home with his family since mid-February. The couple married in 1946 and have four children together.
Carter’s legacy will be remembered for her dedication to advocacy and social issues. She campaigned for many causes throughout her life and wrote several books on various topics. Despite facing health challenges in recent years, Carter continued to remain active in public life until her passing.
Jimmy Carter paid tribute to his late wife on Twitter, stating that he always knew that someone loved and supported him as long as she was by his side. He thanked the American people for their support and prayers during this difficult time.
