Happy 75th anniversary to George and Barbara Bush

George H.W. Bush and Barbara Pierce married in New York on Jan. 6, 1945. For 72 years after that, they spawned a political dynasty, and a love story for the ages.

Had they lived, today would have been their 75th anniversary.

The Bushes settled into their adopted home-state of Texas by 1950.

They had six children together, including George W. Bush, Jeb Bush and Pauline Robinson Bush, who died at age 3 of Leukemia in 1953.

George held his first political position as the Chairman of the Republican Party for Harris County in 1964. The Bushes would become a political power couple, forming a family that would produce two presidents, two governors and hold numerous political offices.

While they loved politics, they lived for each other. The couple was rarely apart and later became a common sight at Astros games.

Barbara Bush passed away April 17, 2018. George soon followed her by passing away on Nov. 30 that year.

While Houston’s most beloved couple is gone, they live in our memories and in our hearts. Happy 75th anniversary, Mr. and Mrs. Bush.
