Washington: US Secretary of State Hillary
Clinton`s mother Dorothy Rodham died on Tuesday at the age of 92,
the Clinton Foundation announced.

Rodham died in Washington surrounded by family members
including her daughter Clinton.

Her death came a day after the State Department said
Clinton had cancelled a scheduled trip to Britain and Turkey
because her mother was ill. Her illness was not disclosed.

The foundation called Rodham "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."

Rodham made trips with the Clintons during their years in
the White House, including a 2000 visit to India and a 1998
trip to China, a TV channel reported.

She made occasional campaign appearances with her
daughter during Clinton`s unsuccessful Democratic presidential
bid in 2008, and she helped the former first lady raise money
to retire her campaign debt.

Clinton had been scheduled to attend a conference on
Afghanistan tomorrow in Istanbul, with a stop in London for
talks with her British counterpart Foreign Secretary William
Hague on the way.
