Lady Bird Johnson, the former first lady who campaigned for green spaces and conservation and worked tenaciously for the political career of her husband, Lyndon B. Johnson, LBJ, died Wednesday, a family spokeswoman said. She was 94.
She was well respected and stayed above the fray. She was a Southern bell — sheltered from the serious political games LBJ may or may not have been involved in. Now that Lady Bird has passed away, the evidence will most likely start to pour out.
