Nancy Reagan dead at 94: Cause of death was cancer, funeral details released by Regan Foundation

Nancy Reagan who many thought would continue to serve the humanity for eternity, is no more. The widow of President Ronald Reagan died earlier today, March 6, Sunday, due to a massive heart attack. She was 94.

A well-known actress in the fifties Nancy Davis Reagan, former First Lady of the United States, died this morning at her home in Los Angeles at the age of 94. The cause of death was congestive heart failure.

A statement on the website of the Regan Foundation while announcing her death said, “Mrs. Reagan will be buried at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California, next to her husband, Ronald Wilson Reagan, who died on June 5, 2004. Prior to the funeral service, there will be an opportunity for members of the public to pay their respects at the Library. Details will be announced shortly.”

The statement went on to add, “In lieu of flowers, Mrs. Reagan requested that contributions be made to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Foundation at www.reaganlibrary.com.”

Nancy was born in New York City on 6 July 1921. As Nancy Davis, she was a Hollywood actress in the 1940s and 1950s, starring in films such as The Next Voice You Hear…, Night Into Morning, and Donovan’s Brain. In 1952, she married Ronald Reagan who was then president of the Screen Actors Guild. Nancy Reagan became First Lady of the United States in January 1981, following her husband’s victory in the 1980 presidential election. She was criticized early in his first term largely due to her decision to replace the White House china, despite its being paid for by private donations.

It is very well documented that she was a forceful personality and had a strong influence on her husband and played a role in a few of his personnel and diplomatic decisions. Reagan, whose husband died in 2004, had appeared frail after suffering several falls in recent years. In May 2012 it was disclosed she had broken several ribs in a fall at her Los Angeles home six weeks earlier. Although she initially worked as an actress, the former first lady was, first and foremost, Mrs. Ronald Reagan.
