Jenna Bush Hager Pays Tearful Tribute to Granny Barbara Bush a Year after Her Death

It’s been a year since Jenna Bush Hager lost her grandmother Barbara Bush, but her memories are still fresh in her heart. She took to Instagram to pay tribute to her beloved grandmother on her death anniversary.

Jenna shared a photo of the former first lady, who passed away on April 17, 2018, on her Instagram account.

“Missing you Ganny today and everyday. One year without our enforcer—hard believe. You made us better and we love you more than tongue can tell [sic],' Jenna captioned the photo,” she wrote.

After battling chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and congestive heart problems, Barbara passed away at the age of 92. Seven months later, her husband, former President George H.W. Bush left the world forever. 

Jenna opened up about her grandmother’s death, saying she hadn’t realized a year had passed away since she left the world until her father, former President George W. Bush, and her aunt reminded her.

“This morning, my aunt and dad pointed out it's been one year since we lost my precious grandma, which I cannot believe because she was such a force. So I woke up thinking of her this morning.”

Jenna has always been influenced by her grandmother’s teachings. 

“I just am so proud to have had a grandmother who lived fearlessly. Her life wasn’t always easy, but she raised us to be better,” she said. 

She further shared how she thinks about her grandmother when she is about to do something impulsive. 

“Even now, when I’m about to do something impulsive, I think, "Would my grandmother like that?" And usually, if the answer’s no, I hold back.”

It is pretty evident that Jenna has taken well after her grandmother. A loving mother to her two daughters, she is a strong woman who has a successful career in media.

Recently, Jenna got a surprise from her family during her first day as a co-host of “Today” show. Her family showered her with encouraging messages to celebrate her achievement. Moreover, Jenna’s husband Henry Hager and their kids surprised her with roses as they walked on to the stage during the show.
