Rosalynn Carter, a true life partner to Jimmy Carter who helped propel him from rural Georgia to the White House in a single decade and became the most politically active first lady since Eleanor Roosevelt, died on Sunday in Plains, Ga. She was 96.

The Carter Center in Atlanta announced her death. It had disclosed on May 30 that Mrs. Carter had dementia. “She continues to live happily at home with her husband, enjoying spring in Plains and visits with loved ones,” a statement by the center said at the time. On Friday, the center said she had entered hospice care at home.

Mr. Carter, 99, the longest-living president in American history, has also been in hospice care at their home, but so far he has defied expectations. The Carter Center had announced in February that he was stopping full-scale medical care “after a series of short hospital stays,” and his family was preparing for the end. But he has hung on — and celebrated his most recent birthday on Oct. 1.

Mrs. Carter was the second longest-lived first lady; Bess Truman, the widow of President Harry S. Truman, was 97 when she died in 1982.

Oh, dear. Wanna bet President Carter won't last much longer? My condolences to the family, friends, and American people on the loss of a wonderful lady.

I’m sure Jimmy will join Rosalynn soon. He was probably hanging on for her

I have no doubt. The world will be a sadder place when they're both gone.

She was truly a good woman. The two of them together were someone for men and women to emulate. I don't think Jimmy will hang on without her, but we will see. I know the world will be less than without them.
