    Nancy Reagan, the stylish and influential wife of the 40th president of the United States who unabashedly put Ronald Reagan at the center of her life but who became a political figure in her own right, died on Sunday at her home in Los Angeles. She was 94.

    The cause was congestive heart failure, according to a statement from Joanne Drake, a spokeswoman for Mrs. Reagan.

    Mrs. Reagan was a fierce guardian of her husband’s image, sometimes at the expense of her own, and during Mr. Reagan’s improbable climb from a Hollywood acting career to the governorship of California and ultimately the White House, she was a trusted adviser.

    “Without Nancy, there would have been no Governor Reagan, no President Reagan,” said Michael K. Deaver, the longtime aide and close friend of the Reagans who died in 2007.

    The Reagan Administration did abominable things however, spitting on Nancy's
    grave changes nothing. It is what it is unfortunately.

    We can do something to make a difference, though.

    Thanks for sharing this Reina7, I can relate to the manner in which she died, since my wife also died from congestive heart failure ... perhaps the number killer of women.

    Y'all crying over Nancy Reagan? Really? Please tell me I'm missing some joke?

    I don't understand why people have warm fuzzies for dead people. This woman's husband is partially responsible for the economic climate that this country is experiencing. Reagan had no love and respect for poor people, even middle class people. In her book, she talked of how the Reagans had a BBQ with John Wayne when President Kennedy got shot. As a wife, you support everything that your man does. So this attitude is a reflection of her. Yet when she dies y'all want to feel soft hearted?
