Who was Betty Ford : Elizabeth Ann Bloomer Warren, Better known as Betty, was a former First Lady of the United States, a title she held from 1974 through 1977 during the presidency of her husband Gerald Ford. During her time as first lady she shook things up when she became very politically active.

In 1978 family members staged an intervention forcing Ford to face her drinking problem and an addiction to opioid analgesics, which has been prescribed to her in the early 1960s. Following her own long-running battle with alcoholism in the 1970s, Ford founded, and served as a chairwoman, the Betty Ford Center (formally called The Betty Ford Clinic) for substance abuse and addiction.

Gerald and Betty Ford were the first presidential couple to live into their nineties, eventually being joined by the Reagan's.
