We remember Lady Bird Johnson (1912-2007)


We remember Lady Bird Johnson, the former First Lady. (Former First Lady Dies at 94). 

She was born Claudia Alta Taylor in Karnack, Texas.  She got the nickname "Lady Bird" as a small child and married Lyndon B. Johnson in 1934.

In the 1950's,  Mr. Johnson became US Senate Majority Leader and one of the most powerful men in Washington.  In 1960, he became VP Johnson under President Kennedy.

Many of us remember that incredible picture of LBJ assuming the presidency on Air Force One. He was sworn next to Mrs. Kennedy and Mrs. Johnson. It was one of the most incredible pictures of the last 50 years!

During Pres. Johnson's difficult presidency, Mrs. Johnson had to deal with outrageous personal attacks on her husband. Nevertheless, she kept her dignity and raised two wonderful daughters.

We will miss Mrs. Johnson. She was a wonderful First Lady, wife, mother and grandmother. For more on her life, see this!
