Rosalynn Carter, wife of former US President Jimmy Carter, has passed away peacefully in Georgia at the age of 97. In recent years, she suffered from dementia but remained surrounded by her loved ones until the end.
Jimmy Carter remembered his wife as a full partner in all his achievements, guiding and supporting him throughout their lives. They met in 1946 when Rosalynn was just 18 and Jimmy was 21. Thirty years later, Carter was elected as president, and she quickly became one of the most influential first ladies in history.
After her husband’s defeat in the 1980 elections, Rosalynn focused on humanitarian projects such as supporting those suffering from mental illness. Her legacy will continue to inspire generations to come.
