On Saturday, hundreds of mourners arrived in Houston, Texas for the funeral of former first lady of the United States Barbara Bush. And judging by the images that resulted, it's clear that she left a big impact on a lot of people ― the countless photos from Barbara Bush's funeral show how many people respected and admired her.
Bush, who died at the age of 92 on Tuesday, April 17, served as first lady from 1989 through 1993, while her husband, George H.W. Bush, was president. The pair was married for more than 70 years ― they were engaged shortly before George departed the U.S. to serve in World War II, and were wed in 1945 ― and throughout her time in the White House, she was a well-known and iconic figure.
Earlier this week, news broke that she was in failing health, and had declined further medical treatment. Just hours later, it was announced that she had died due to complications from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Her funeral was held at St. Martin's Episcopal Church in Houston, the same church she and her husband attended for years, and the many photographs from the event spoke to just how many people will fondly remember her.
