The wife of Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY), chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, has died after a two-year bout with glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer.

“After a courageous battle with cancer, Bobbi is now at peace and at home with the Lord,” Barrasso said in a statement. “In addition to being a devoted wife and mother, Bobbi was a leader, fierce advocate for Wyoming, and friend to everyone she met.”

“We miss her dearly,” he added. “On behalf of our entire family, we thank everyone for your prayers and continued support as we remember her and grieve together.”

There was an immediate outpouring of support from Republicans and Democrats for Barrasso, a physician who is highly respected among his colleagues.

“Elaine and I are heartbroken to learn of the passing of Bobbi Barrasso,” said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. “Our friend and colleague John wore his love for Bobbi on his sleeve. And he was blessed to go through life with someone whose commitment to serving the people of Wyoming rivaled his own. Bobbi’s home state is better for her decades of devoted advocacy for a host of worthy causes. In addition to her tireless work on breast cancer treatment and awareness, Bobbi inspired action in Wyoming and Washington on issues ranging from suicide prevention to historical preservation and support for survivors of child abuse.”


“Today, the Senate holds Bobbi’s beloved husband John, her daughter Hadley, and the entire Barrasso and Brown families in our prayers,” he added.
