Outrage after professor calls Barbara Bush 'amazing racist'

4 of 9 Newport News, Va. (Aug. 26, 2003) - President George H.W. Bush and former First Lady Barbara Bush share applause with Adm. Vern Clark, Chief of Naval Operations, as they watch the Navy's parachute team "The Leapfrogs" perform during a keel laying ceremony honoring the building of the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier George H.W. Bush (CVN 77). A spray of dozens of roses covered the closed light-colored metallic casket. Ogansoy, who lost her 6-year-old son in a vehicle accident about a decade ago, said she admires Barbara Bush's resilience in the face of the tragedy that famously turned her hair prematurely white.

A hearse containing the former first lady's casket arrived before daybreak at St. Martin's, which is the nation's largest Episcopal church. Queener was in Houston from Washington, D.C., with her husband for work, and they chose to attend events honoring the former first lady, who Queener also credits for being a positive influence on her husband when he signed the Americans with Disabilities Act in 1990. He hadn't been scheduled to visit, but he made a decision to go after watching video from the church, said family spokesman Jim McGrath.

Former President Jimmy Carter and Rosalynn Carter will not attend, as Jimmy Carter will be on a trip overseas and Rosalynn Carter is recovering from recent intestinal surgery, a spokesperson for the Carter Center said in a statement Thursday.

Jessica Queener, who works in special education and wears a cochlear implant to help with hearing loss, said Barbara Bush's work in education and helping people with disabilities "really resonates with me on a personal level but also professionally".

An invitation-only funeral is set for Saturday.


Bush will be buried later in the day behind her husband's presidential library at Texas A&M University.

The 90-minute service begins at 11 a.m. Saturday at St. Martin's Episcopal Church.

As the outpouring of tributes continues for Barbara Bush, the general public can pay its respects to the former first lady at a viewing.

For Kelly Ogansoy, Bush's spirit was her strength when her eldest daughter, Robin, died of leukemia as a child. The public must go to the Second Baptist Church at 6400 Woodway Drive to park and pass through security. Please enter the parking lots using Voss Road.

Bush died Tuesday at her Houston home.
