Judy Agnew, former vice president's wife, dead at 91
Former second lady died June 20 in Rancho Mirage
The New York Times describes her as the woman who went to Washington after Richard M. Nixon plucked her husband from relative political obscurity to make him vice president and who later stood by him when he resigned in 1973 because of criminal charges.

As the nation’s second lady, Agnew, a former PTA president and an assistant Girl Scout leader, continued to cook kettles of spaghetti, buy her clothes off the rack, pack her husband’s bag and do needlepoint, just as she had previously done in Annapolis when her husband was governor of Maryland, according to the Times.
