Rush Limbaugh, a conservative radio host, Thursday announced that his Aunt Anne had passed away, saying she was an inspiration to everybody who knew her.
“It’s a sad day for the Limbaugh family,” Limbaugh said. “My Aunt Anne passed away very early this morning, natural causes, a long illness.”
Limbaugh said she was “charitable to a fault” and “selfless.”
“She’s always been so supportive of me, even when it was challenging to do so,” Limbaugh said.
“She led a full life. She was one of the grande dames of the family, a genuine matriarch, and she’s going to be sorely, sorely missed,” Limbaugh said. “She and her husband, my Uncle Steve, married well over 50 years. And these things happen. I’ve always said I look forward to getting older, and the day has not yet come where I regret that.”
“Every year so far has been better than the day before, but the older you get, death is something that’s more frequent and more common among your family, your circle of friends and so forth,” Limbaugh said.
“It’s unavoidable, obviously. But she was just a great lady with impeccable taste and a wonderful personality, always smiling. She was inspirational to everybody who knew her, Anne Limbaugh,” he said.
The radio host said Anne frequently wrote him messages encouraging him.
“She listened every day, and, if she heard me say something she thought was especially poignant or smart, she’d fire off a note and tell me,” Limbaugh said. “Those kinds of things are invaluable, getting support like that, and she did that with everybody in the family.”
He said he was so grateful to have such person in his life.
“I’m gonna miss her tremendously because she was one of a kind. She was confident,” Limbaugh said.
“The older I get the more that impresses me in people as a really valuable attitude. Genuine confidence is often the thing that opens doors, coupled with desires. But, yeah, she was constantly supportive,” he said.
