Former First Lady Nancy Reagan Dead at 94
The former First Lady of the United States, Nancy Reagan, is dead at the age of 94, according to a spokeswoman at the Reagan Library.
The cause of death, according to reports, is congestive heart failure.
Reagan was called a very influential and stylish First Lady to the 40th U. S. President, Ronald Reagan. The two met in Hollywood when they both were actors in 1949. Ronald Reagan was elected governor of California in 1967 and President of the United States in 1980.
One of Nancy Reagan's legacies as First Lady was the 'Just Say No' anti-drug campaign launched in 1982. On November 5, 1994, President Regan announced to the world that he was suffering from Alzheimer's disease, and for the next 10 years, Nancy served as his caretaker. President Regan died on June 5, 2004.
In lieu of flowers, Mrs. Regan asked that donations be made to the Reagan National Library.
