Kathryn Adams Limbaugh, 44, was married to conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh, who died Tuesday after being diagnosed with advanced-stage lung cancer more than a year ago. She announced her husband’s death in a Wednesday statement at the beginning of “The Rush Limbaugh Show.”

The former event planner met the radio show host in 2004 while working at a charity golf tournament and married him six years later in 2010 when she was 33 and he was 59. The two dated for three years before getting engaged.

Kathryn was Limbaugh’s fourth wife; the couple was married for more than 10 years. Republican political consultant Karl Rove on Wednesday told Fox News’ “Faulkner Focus” that he remembered their wedding as a “wonderful, wonderful day.”

She is a direct descendant of former President John Adams, and her father, Richard Rogers, attended the U.S. Naval Academy with the late Republican Arizona Sen. John McCain. She has three siblings, including brothers Richard Rogers Jr., Jonathan Rogers, and sister Wendy Hazel.

“Rush was an extraordinary man,” she said. “A gentle giant. Brilliant, quick-witted, genuinely kind. Extremely generous. Passionate. Courageous. And the hardest working person I know.” She added that her husband, 70, encouraged many people to think for themselves, learn and lead.

Kathryn said, “On behalf of the Limbaugh family, I would personally like to thank each and every one of you who prayed for Rush and inspired him to keep going. You rallied around Rush and lifted him up when he needed you the most,” she said. “I am certain, without a shadow of a doubt, if he could be here today, he would be. He loved you, and he loved this radio program with every part of his being.”
