The Bush family is in mourning today following the death of a beloved family member. Laura Bush's mother, Jenna Hawkins Welch, has taken her final breath.
Jenna's death came just days before Mother's Day. Jenna was 99 at the time of her passing. The announcement was made via social media.
“She read us poetry and taught us about every constellation in the sky. Her kindness and graciousness were as expansive as the West Texas horizon,” wrote Jenna Bush Hager, 37, a co-host on the Today show.
The family reportedly already held a funeral for her this past Saturday. The cause of her death was not immediately made clear, however, given her age, it was probably due to natural causes.
"In Hager’s post this weekend, she shared several photos that appeared to be from Welch’s memorial service and of her joint headstone with her 'great love,' husband Harold Bruce.
'So happy she’s reunited … after almost 25-years apart,' Hager wrote.
The family requested that donations or gifts be made to the Midland County Public Library Foundation or the Jenna Welch Nature Study Center in lieu of flowers.
Please join us in praying for the entire Bush family during this sad time. We pray Laura, and the entire Bush family, is comforted by the memories of her mother and her faith in the Lord.
