The Herald reports:
Nancy Reagan, the helpmate, backstage adviser and fierce protector of Ronald Reagan in his journey from actor to president – and finally during his 10-year battle with Alzheimer’s disease – has died. She was 94.
The former first lady died Sunday at her home in the Bel-Air section of Los Angeles of congestive heart failure, assistant Allison Borio told The Associated Press.
I wasn’t a great fan of her influence in the Reagan White House, but I was a huge fan of her dedication to Ronald Reagan – especially over the ten years of his Alzheimer’s battle.
