The First Ladies’ Library in Canton is honoring former First Lady Barbara Bush with a special memorial exhibit. Bush died Tuesday at age 92.

The exhibit includes books, videos and letters of the only woman in U.S. history who lived to see both her husband and her son sworn in as president. 

Jennifer Highfield, CEO of the National First Ladies’ Library, says many knew Bush as the matriarch of her family and the United States.

One of the longest-serving Ohioans in Congress is being remembered as a proud Republican, yet nonpartisan public servant. Ralph Regula, who represented Northeast Ohio for 36 years, died Wednesday in his home. He was 92.

'A good man'
People remembering Ralph Regula quickly get to two points.

“He was an exceptional person;” and “he got things done.”
