Hillary Clinton's mother, Dorothy Rodham, died just after midnight Tuesday in Washington, D.C., according to a statement from the Clinton family. She was 92.
Secretary of State Clinton announced she was canceling a trip to Istanbul and London Monday to stay with her ailing mother. No medical information was disclosed.
Born in Chicago, Dorothy Rodham was raised by her grandparents in California. Later in life, she moved to Arkansas to be closer to the Clintons, and she became involved in charity work, focusing on organizations that help neglected and abused children.
"Her story was a quintessentially American one, largely because she wrote it herself," the family statement reads. "She overcame abandonment and hardship as a young girl to become the remarkable woman she was – a warm, generous and strong woman; an intellectual; a woman who told a great joke and always got the joke; an extraordinary friend and, most of all, a loving wife, mother and grandmother."

When Marc Mezvinsky left his job as a Manhattan investment banker late last year and headed to Wyoming, it wasn't exactly clear what the newlywed would do next.
Now back in New York City, Mezvinsky, 33, isn't just happily attending events with wife Chelsea Clinton – according to a New York Daily News report, the financier has been hatching a new hedge fund business venture with old friends.

Chelsea Clinton isn't ready to have children just yet, but it is on the radar.
The former president's daughter, 31, and her husband Marc Mezvinsky came out to support a pro-gay-marriage event in New York on Tuesday – and in the midst of talking about families, she dropped a hint about expanding her own.
"As a New Yorker who not that long ago got married in New York to her best friend … I certainly believe that all of my friends should have the right, as Marc and I did, to marry their best friend," Clinton said.

Further putting rumors of a rift to rest, visibly happy couple Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky – holding hands and swaying to music – had several reasons to be all smiles Wednesday night.
First off, her father, former President Bill Clinton, was an honoree at an all-star evening to mark the 25th anniversary of the anthem to fight AIDS, "That's What Friends Are For."
The amfAR gala, which helped kick off New York Fashion Week, also marked a sweet reunion for Chelsea and Marc, after he had been skiing in Wyoming. At the benefit, held at the Cipriani Wall Street in Lower Manhattan, the investment banker, 33, danced with his wife, 30, who is pursuing a Ph.D. at New York University's Wagner School of Public Service.
Along with the entire crowd – who included Julianna Margulies, Richard Gere, Harry Belafonte, Iman and Rosie O'Donnell – Bill Clinton marveled at the still-pitch-perfect voice of Dionne Warwick, 70. Also on-hand to belt out solos from the stage: Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight and Sir Elton John.
