Nancy Reagan, the former actress who was fiercely protective of husband Ronald Reagan through a Hollywood career, eight years in the White House, an assassination attempt and Alzheimer's disease, died Sunday at age 94, the Reagan library said.

Reagan, who became one of the most influential first ladies in U.S. history during her Republican husband's presidency from 1981 to 1989, died Sunday morning at her home in Los Angeles of congestive heart failure.

She will be buried next to her husband, at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California, the statement said.
