Former first lady Rosalynn Carter died at the age of 96 at her home in Plains, Georgia, surrounded by family.

She is survived by her husband, four children, 11 grandchildren, and 14 great-grandchildren.

Carter worked alongside her mother after her father’s death at 13, and married Jimmy Carter in 1946.

Throughout her life, she was an activist first lady and devoted herself to improving treatment and services for those coping with mental health conditions.

She was diagnosed with dementia in May 2023 and spent her final days with her family.

Former first lady Rosalynn Carter died with her family by her side at her home in Plains, Georgia, on Sunday, according to a statement by The Carter Center. She was 96.

“Rosalynn was my equal partner in everything I ever accomplished,” said the former president.

Adding, “She gave me wise guidance and encouragement when I needed it.”

“As long as Rosalynn was in the world, I always knew somebody loved and supported me,” explained Carter.

“She’s the girl I want to marry,” is what Carter allegedly told his mother immediately after his first date with his future wife.

“An activist first lady with her own bold agenda, she created a distinct East Wing office from which she set about helping disadvantaged people,” wrote the Carter Center.

Further explaining, “Her efforts challenged age discrimination for older adults, encouraged opportunities for people with developmental disabilities, and advanced women’s equality.”
