A remarkable woman of faith. That's how President Bush, and people around the nation, are remembering Ruth Bell Graham.
Ruth, the wife of reverend Billy Graham, died Thursday night at the age of 87, at her home in Montreat in Buncombe County.
Public services will be held in Montreat Saturday. A private, family-only burial is planned Sunday at the new Billy Graham Library in Charlotte.
Graham had been bedridden for months and slipped into a coma Tuesday.
