Nicknames: Elizabeth Ann Bloomer, First lady Betty Ford
Late former first lady Betty Ford had an estimated net worth of approximately $20 million before she passed away in the summer of 2011. But more important her net worth, Ford had an enormous impact on the culture of addiction in America, encouraging countless individuals to get help for their problems. It was in 1948 when she married Gerald Ford, who would later go on to become President of the United States. As First Lady, Ford was known for her candor and willingness to discuss "taboo" subjects such as abortion, drug abuse, and female equality. She had many unorthodox qualities for a First Lady, including her knowledge of marijuana, her proclivity for mood rings, and her CB radio habit. Another good example of her candor was her nonchalant allusion to the fact that she and President Ford shared a bed, and during an interview with McCall's she went as far as to say that she and her husband had sex "as often as possible"! After the White House, Ford continued to be an active campaigner for women's rights. In addition to this, she was able to publically defeat her addiction to alcohol, and went on to open up the still famous Betty Ford a treatment hospital for various kinds of chemical addiction.
Elizabeth Ann Bloomer Warren Ford (April 8, 1918 - July 8, 2011), better known as Betty Ford, was First Lady of the United States from 1974 to 1977 during the presidency of her husband Gerald Ford. As First Lady, she was active in social policy and created precedents as a politically active presidential wife.
Throughout her husband's term in office, she maintained high approval ratings despite opposition from some conservative Republicans who objected to her more moderate and liberal positions on social issues. Ford was noted for raising breast cancer awareness following her 1974 mastectomy and was a passionate supporter of, and activist for, the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). Pro-choice on abortion and a leader in the Women's Movement, she gained fame as one of the most candid first ladies in history, commenting on every hot-button issue of the time, including feminism, equal pay, the ERA, sex, drugs, abortion, and gun control. She also raised awareness of addiction when she announced her long-running battle with alcoholism in the 1970s.
Following her White House years, she continued to lobby for the ERA and remained active in the feminist movement. She is the founder, and served as the first chair of the board of directors, of the Betty Ford Center for substance abuse and addiction and is a recipient of the Congressional Gold Medal (co-presentation with her husband, Gerald R. Ford, October 21, 1998) and the Presidential Medal of Freedom (alone, presented 1991, by George H. W. Bush).
She was born Elizabeth Ann Bloomer in Chicago, Illinois, the third child and only daughter of William Stephenson Bloomer, Sr. (July 19, 1874 - July 18, 1934), a traveling salesman for Royal Rubber Co., and his wife, Hortense (n'ee Neahr; July 11, 1884 - November 20, 1948). Her two older brothers were Robert and William Jr. After living briefly in Denver, Colorado, she grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where she graduated from Central High School.
