'She was the driving force': Family, co-workers remember 'Steel Magnolia' Rosalynn Carter
On Monday, WABE’s “Morning Edition” heard reflections and testimonies from those who loved and worked with former first lady Rosalynn Carter.
The wife of former president Jimmy Carter, lifelong mental health advocate and co-founder of the Atlanta-based Carter Center, died at age 96 at the couple’s home in Plains, Ga. while in hospice care.
She is survived by her husband, four children and more than 20 grandchildren. Her grandson, former state Sen. Jason Carter, and Carter Center CEO Paige Alexander, joined “Morning Edition” to take a deeper dive into Rosalynn’s legacy.
