Jenna Bush Hager commemorated the death of her grandmother in a sweet Instagram story. It's been two years since the older woman passed away.


Former First Lady Barbara Bush left her mark in a big way when she served alongside her husband years ago. The people who were closest to her, though, will remember her best.

Her granddaughter and talk show host Jenna Bush Hager took to Instagram stories on Thursday to pay tribute to Barbara. A screenshot of it is found below.

"Miss this wonderful woman. Love you Ganny," wrote Jenna's cousin, Sam Bush LeBlond, over a picture of Barbara smiling as she stood outside under clear skies.

Jenna reposted the shot and text and added, "Two years without her. I can't believe it." Barbara passed away in 2018, mere months before her husband, former President George H. W. Bush, also died.


The couple was together for 73 years before they moved beyond this world. Last year, Jenna again paid tribute to her late grandmother in a post that revealed how much she missed her.

At the time, the "Today Show" anchor included a photo of Barbara wearing her signature pearls as she sat down wearing a blue dress. Again, the older lady wore a bright smile on her face.

Months after her grandparents' death, Jenna spoke to People about it. "It's very interesting when you lose these people that you love so much, and also you're filled with awe that they're beloved by everybody," she said.

The close-knit Bush family has passed down a lot of valuable lessons to younger generations. Back in April, Jenna shared an important lesson she learned from her mother, Laura Bush.


As a mom-of-three, Jenna recalled being taught that in raising her two daughters, she should never compare them. Laura did the same with Jenna and her sister Barbara.

Jenna, 38, is married to husband Henry Hager, and the pair share, Margaret, seven, Poppy, four, and Henry, eight months. During the interview, she noted that her mother always taught by actions rather than with words.

The happy family is currently at home altogether due to the quarantine policies resulting from the coronavirus pandemic. While a public memorial wasn't possible, we're sure the late matriarch was remembered by many.
