Former first lady Rosalynn Carter has died at the age of 96 on Sunday afternoon, according to her family.

Rosalynn died while in hospice care at her Plains, Georgia, home. Her husband, former President Jimmy Carter, 99, has been in hospice care for several months.

“Rosalynn was my equal partner in everything I ever accomplished,” former President Carter said in a statement released by The Carter Center on Sunday. “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.”

Rosalynn is survived by her husband, their children—Jack, Chip, Jeff, and Amy—as well as their 11 grandchildren and their 14 great-grandchildren.

“Besides being a loving mother and extraordinary First Lady, my mother was a great humanitarian in her own right,” Chip Carter said. “Her life of service and compassion was an example for all Americans. She will be sorely missed not only by our family but by the many people who have better mental health care and access to resources for caregiving today.”

This is a developing story and will be updated when more information becomes available.
