In memory of my beloved mom

Laura Bush’s beloved mom sadly passed away on Friday, just ahead of Mother’s Day.  Jenna Hawkins Welch died at 99, one year before her 100th anniversary.

Heartbroken Laura announced about her parent’s passing on Sunday via an emotional post on Instagram. The former First lady shared a photo of her dear mom alongside a touching tribute.

Her words addressed her late mother make us cry inside:

Jenna Hawkins Welch was a true daughter of West Texas who loved her family, books, and nature… Our family is grateful for her long and wonderful life. We miss her dearly.

Jenna Bush Hager also commemorated her late grandma with a powerful tribute.

Laura’s husband George W. Bush also lost both his parents. His mother Barbara passed away in April 2018 at 92. His father, the former US President George H. W. Bush, joined his wife in the heaven in November. He was 94.
