Ottawa. Apr 18 (IBNS): Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has condoled the demise of former US first lady Barbara Bush.

Barbara, who was the wife of former US President George HW Bush, died at an age of 92.

In a tweet, Trudeau said: "Always a friend to Canada, Barbara Bush leaves a legacy of dignity, grace, service and devotion to family. Sophie and I send our deepest condolences to Presidents George H.W. and George W. Bush, their family, and to all Americans."

Barbara was a key figure in the political family which has given two Presidents to the nation- her husband George HW Bush and son George W Bush.

Sje had served as the first lady of the country from 1989 to 1993.

George HW Bush is the longest living US President at 93.

His son George W Bush was elected as the President of the US in 2000.

He served the nation for two terms.

A statement issued by George W Bush's office said: "My dear mother has passed on at age 92. Laura, Barbara, Jenna, and I are sad, but our souls are settled because we know hers was. Barbara Bush was a fabulous First Lady and a woman unlike any other who brought levity, love, and literacy to millions."

He said: "I'm a lucky man that Barbara Bush was my mother. Our family will miss her dearly, and we thank you all for your prayers and good wishes."
