Lady Bird Johnson Has Died at 94

Lady Bird Johnson, former first lady and wife of Lyndon Baines Johnson, had died at the age of 94. She suffered a stroke in 2002, and was hospitalized last month for a low-grade fever. Cause of death today was listed as "natural causes".

As first lady, she was perhaps best known as the determined environmentalist who wanted roadside billboards and junkyards replaced with trees and wildflowers. She raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to beautify Washington. The $320 million Highway Beautification Bill, passed in 1965, was known as "The Lady Bird Bill," and she made speeches and lobbied Congress to win its passage.
