Former first lady Nancy Reagan dies at age 94

Several media outlets are reporting that former first lady Nancy Reagan died.

 

Funeral arrangements set for Nancy Reagan

A private funeral service will be held Friday for former first lady Nancy Reagan, who died Sunday at the age of 94.

Reagan will lie in repose Wednesday and Thursday at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi, Calif., according to the library’s foundation. Members of the public will get a chance to pay respects between 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Wednesday and 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Thursday. Heightened security at the facility is expected.

Nancy Reagan will be buried next to her husband on the grounds of the library.

Nancy Reagan died in Bel Air, Calif. of congestive heart failure, leading to an outpouring of remembrances for the former first lady.

President Obama, who ordered flags flown at half-staff to honor Reagan, personally praised her on Monday, calling her “gracious” and “charming” when he and first lady Michelle Obama entered the White House.

“I think it’s been well documented the extraordinary love that she had for her husband, and the extraordinary comfort and strength she provided him during really hard times,” the president told media in the Oval Office.

Sad and too bad for growth of political and racial diversity, that all of the past presidents did not attend. There was invisible wall between the republicans and the democrats and Hollywood, on Friday mid day services. Attendees under the big white tent, were mostly white. Thurs, 3/9/2016, Cerritos City Council Meeting, did not close the council meeting in memory of the former first lady of California and our great country of United States. What kind of a symbol is this sending? Old Euro saying, the skies will open and pour rain, during an end to an political era. Sunday,… Read more »

Maybe Nancy was too much of a controlling personality, which led to the demise of Pres. Reagan. Idle minds dye early; Ret. President could not think for himself.

Thanks Nancy for educating USA of America on Aids/HIV, too bad you could not ignite more love for Aids by your Husband, in the war against Aids. Almost -7- yrs lapsed, before your husband recognized the wide spread fallout of AIDS in our country and world-wide.

Hillsides around the Reagan Museum, reminded me of the countryside in Ireland, green green hillsides. The hills could not have been any Greener. Disappointed when the bus merged at the hillside entrance-way, the Ronald Reagan Museum Marquee sign displayed neglect, bare dirt, and very few flower arrangements at the base for Nancy’s event. Upon entering the museum foyer, most disappointing to see the cheap construction grade vinyl floor, Museum of this caliber should have wood plank floor or marble flooring. Room where Nancy Laid for public display, again disappointing there was not very many flower arrangements placed for the Ret.… Read more »

Nancy Reagan: 1. What will happen to your thousands of wardrobe pieces being held in the San Fernando Valley warehouse, being paid for by public funds ? 2. What will be happen to a thousand presidential artifacts, which are not housed in the Presidential Museum, & sitting growing dust in the San Fernando Valley warehouse, paid for by taxpayers? 3. What will happen to the 750,000 Christmas card reciprocate list, the largest in presidential history? 4. How many students did Reaganomics oust from getting a college education, since Reaganomics cut off Social Security to the age of 25; and under,… Read more »
