Former US First Lady Betty Ford, the
widow of former President Gerald Ford and founder of drug treatment facility the
Betty Ford Center, has died at the age of 93.

Mrs Ford, who was known for her strong opinions on public issues, established
the drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility in 1982.

Mrs Ford was considered one of the most visible first ladies in US
history.

She was married to Mr Ford, who died in 2006, for 58 years.

Mrs Ford, had lived in California since her husband’s death, died on Friday
evening with family at her bedside, according to a family member.

“As our nation’s First Lady, she was a powerful advocate for women’s health
and women’s rights,” President Barack Obama said, following the news of Mrs
Ford’s death.

He added: “After leaving the White House, Mrs Ford helped reduce the social
stigma surrounding addiction and inspired thousands to seek much-needed
treatment.”

“I was deeply saddened this afternoon when I heard of Betty Ford’s death,”
another former First Lady, Nancy Reagan, said in a statement.

No one confronted life’s struggles with more fortitude or
honesty, and as a result, we all learned from the challenges she
faced”

Former President George HW Bush

Mrs Reagan added that Mrs Ford was her husband’s
“strength through some very difficult days in our country’s history”.

Raising public awarenessMrs Ford, who won battles with breast cancer, and drug and alcohol addiction,
sought to raise awareness about both issues. She was also outspoken on women’s
rights issues.

She was noted for helping to create the Betty Ford Center for drug and
alcohol rehabilitation in Rancho Mirage in California, a facility where tens of
thousands of addicts have been treated.

Former President George HW Bush said on Friday that “no one confronted life’s
struggles with more fortitude or honest”.

“The Betty Ford Center, which already has helped change the lives of
thousands of people, will be her lasting legacy of care and concern,” Mr Bush
said.

Mrs Ford was born Elizabeth Anne Bloomer in Chicago in the state of Illinois
in 1918 and grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan, as one of three children.

After studying dance at Bennington College in Vermont, she moved to New York
City at the age of 21 to work as a dancer and model before heading back to the
mid-western US two years later.

Mrs Ford met and married her first husband, William Warren, in 1942 but
divorced after five years.

A short time later, she met Gerald Ford, a Navy lieutenant at the time.

The two lived in the Washington DC area for nearly three decades as Mr Ford
climbed from Capitol Hill, where he served as a congressman, to the White House,
where he held the presidency from 1974-1977.

Elizabeth Ann Bloomer Warren Ford was born on April 8th, 1918 according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Betty_ford

April 8th, 1918

4 + 8 +1+9+1+8 = 31 = her life lesson = what she was here to learn = Controversy.  Provoking a reaction.  Getting into the mix.  Stirring things up.  Rising to the challenge.  Striving to be #1.

April 8th, 1918

April 8th

4 + 8 +2+0+1+1 = 16 = her personal year (from April 8th, 2011 to April 7th, 2012) = Shocks.  Surprises.  From out of nowhere.

16 year + 7 (July) = 23 = her personal month (from July 8th, 2011 to August 7th, 2011) = Zest for life.

23 month + 8 (8th of the month on Friday July 8th, 2011) = 31 = her personal day = Provoking a reaction.

When her number (31 (4 + 8 +1+9+1+8 = 31)) came up, that’s when she got to live/experience what she was her to live/experience.  So today was her day.
