She was, easily.

Bess Truman 97
Lady Bird Johnson 94
Betty Ford 93
Nancy Reagan 92 (still alive, born July 6, 1921)
Edith Wilson (Woodrow) 89
Anna Harrison (William Henry) 88
Barbara Bush 88 (still alive born June 8 1925)
Sarah Polk (James) 87
Edith Roosevelt (Teddy) 87
Rosalynn Carter 86 (still alive born August 18 1927)
Lucretia Garfield (James) 85
Sarah Jackson (Andrew) 84


Four Presidents lived to be 90 (Ford and Reagan both passed away at 93, while John Adams and Herbert Hoover passed away at 90).

George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter will both turn 90 next year (Bush on June 12, Carter on October 1)

The only other Presidents to reach 80 and live to tell about it are Truman (88) Madison (85) Jefferson (83) Nixon (81) and John Quincy Adams (son of John) 80.

John Adams and Thomas Jefferson both died on July 4, 1826, the 50th Anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. Adams' last words were "Thomas Jefferson still survives", but he was unaware that Jefferson had passed away a couple of hours earlier.

James K. Polk was the shortest-lived President who died of natural causes (53); Garfield and Kennedy were shot to death before their fiftieth birthdays (Garfield died two months to the day before his).

Yes. I was quite surprised by that as well. The early to mid 1800s were not known for people having long life spans.

Yes, Polk had the shortest "retirement" period of any ex President, he passed away about 3 months after leaving office in 1849.

After he was elected in 1844, Polk vowed to serve only one term, and he stuck to it. He did not run for re-election, and passed away 3 months after leaving office.

Polk wanted to do four things when he was elected in 1844: annex Texas (that happened three days before he assumed office); restore the Independent Treasury; settle the border dispute with Great Britain over the Oregon Country, and: and acquire California and all the Mexican east of the Sierras. He said he could do it in one term, and he did. Unfortunately, his agenda was more of a two-term agenda, and he worked himself to death. Polk was the first President not to run for re-election, although William Henry Harrison was technically the first. Although Harrison, elected in 1840, died a month into his Presidency, he was on record as saying he would serve only one term and would not run again in 1844.

Oh yeah, Polk's Vice President, a lawyer from Philadelphia, was so supportive of annexing Texas that the state named a county and then the county's major city after him. His name? George Dallas.
