PLAINS, Ga. — Former first lady Rosalynn Carter, who died this month at age 96, was laid to rest Wednesday in Plains, Ga., the tiny farm town where she met Jimmy Carter as an infant, married him as a teenager and where they returned after the White House.
Rosalynn Carter: The life of the former first lady
The latest: At the funeral of Rosalynn Carter, the former first lady was honored for her faith, family and public service. She was buried near the house that she and Jimmy Carter built in Plains, Ga., in 1961. Rosalynn Carter died at age 96 at the couple’s home on Nov. 19. Two days before her death, the Carter Center said she was in hospice care at home.
Redefining the role of first lady: Rosalynn Carter created the modern Office of the First Lady and advocated for better treatment of the mentally ill during her years in the White House and for four decades afterward. She also wrote or co-wrote five books, mainly about caregiving and mental health.
Rosalynn and Jimmy Carter: The Carters had been married for more than 77 years, the longest presidential marriage in U.S. history. Their love story blossomed in World War II and survived the searing scrutiny of political life. The final moments of Rosalynn’s life were spent with Jimmy at the family home in Plains.
