Betty Ford RIP: Great Photos Of The First Lady Who Made Us Clean And Serene
BETTY Ford RIP. You were Gerald Ford’s wife. He took over from scandal-shattered Richard Nixon as President of the USA. Nixon made a name for himself over Watergate. On June 1, 1975, President Gerald Ford made his own mark on the top job by slipping as he disembarked from Air Force One in Salzburg, Austria. His wife was Betty Ford. She never flinched. But she suffered. She had cancer. Her mastectomy made a taboo subject a talking point. She spoke out on abortion and drugs. Her drugs addiction led to the creation of the Betty Ford Clinic. You can go there to get Clean And Serene.
This was her life in photos:
