Rush Limbaugh’s Wife Salutes Late Broadcaster As ‘an Unwavering Patriot’ – By James Crowley (Newsweek) / Feb 17 2021
Talk radio personality Rush Limbaugh died on Wednesday, at age 70, a little more than a year after he was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer in January 2020. The conservative political commentator’s death was announced on his radio show by his wife, Kathryn, who spoke about her late husband on the air for roughly six minutes.

“It is with profound sadness, I must share with you directly, that our beloved Rush, my wonderful husband, passed away this morning, due to complications from lung cancer,” she said. “Rush will forever be the greatest of all time. Rush was an extraordinary man: a gentle-giant, brilliant, quick-witted, genuinely kind, extremely generous, passionate, courageous, and the hardest working person I know.”
Before Kathryn Limbaugh’s remarks, an announcer noted that listeners had been keeping the broadcaster and his wife in their thoughts and prayers.
