Barbara Bush went out the way she lived, as a firebrand. The former First Lady passed away today.

CBS News describes the scene last night, “Former first lady Barbara Bush has been in failing health as of Sunday, but has been in “great spirits,” according to her granddaughter Jenna Bush Hager. In fact, as of Monday night she was alert and having conversations over a bourbon, a source close to the Bush family told CBS News.

The former first lady, 92, has been through a series of hospitalizations and will not seek additional medical care. She has been suffering in recent years from congestive heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). COPD makes it difficult for her to breathe, according to the source. On Monday, Hager said that her grandmother and her grandfather, former President George H.W. Bush, are surrounded by family.”
