Rosalynn Carter, the former first lady and humanitarian who helped change mental health care in Georgia and the nation, died Sunday at her Plains home. She was 96.
”Rosalynn was my equal partner in everything I ever accomplished,” her husband of 77 years President Jimmy Carter said in a statement. “She gave me wise guidance and encouragement when I needed it. As long as Rosalynn was in the world, I always knew somebody loved and supported me.”
