We remember Betty Ford (1918-2011)



Elizabeth Ann "Betty" Ford was born on this day in 1918.  She died in 2011 at age 93 after dealing with health issues for some time.

Yes, I'm old enough to remember the day that Betty Ford became the First Lady.  It was a very tense moment and President & Mrs Ford did a lot to reassure and settled down the country after the Watergate scandal.

As First Lady, she was a bit unconventional and tackled issues like breast cancer.  After leaving the White House, she started The Betty Ford Center for people with substance addiction problems.


We owe Pres & Mrs Ford a lot.  I think that history will be very kind to both of them!
