Barbara Bush, the wife of former US President George HW Bush, is in "failing health" and has chose to no longer seek medical treatment, the office of the ex-president says in a statement.

Mrs Bush played an active role whilst first lady, championing the cause of adult literacy among others.

Barbara and George H.W. Bush have been married for 73 years. The former President wrote in his book, "All the Best, George Bush:" "We are two people but we are one". The other was Abigail Adams, wife of John Adams, the nation's second president, and mother of John Quincy Adams, the sixth president.

Eight years after she and her husband left the White House, Mrs. "Barbara Bush has a character that is as big, inspiring and iconic as Texas", Abbott said in a statement. "I have had great medical care and more operations than you would believe", she also told the magazine. Bush told an interviewer, "I sat next to her once, thought she was lovely, and I think she's very happy in Alaska, and I hope she'll stay there".

Barbara Pierce Bush was born in Rye, New York.

She was briefly hospitalized in Houston eight years ago after a relapse of the nonlife-threatening condition, ABC News reported in 2010.

Former U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, now ambassador to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, tweeted that Bush is "one of America's most loved women", and that "I join thousands in hoping she is comfortable and knows how loved she is throughout the world!"

They had six children but daughter Robin died of leukemia at the age of 4. She later said dyed hair didn't look good on her and credited the color to the public's perception of her as "everybody's grandmother".
