Gov. Rick Perry released the following statement regarding the passing of Nancy Lee Bass:

"The generosity of Nancy Lee Bass touched the lives of countless people in Fort Worth, throughout Texas and across the nation. As the matriarch of a legendary Texas family, she all too often found herself in the spotlight, when she vastly preferred quietly giving generously to the causes she and her late husband, Perry Bass, believed in. Texas has suffered the loss of a true philanthropist. Anita joins me in offering our deepest condolences to her sons, her extended family and her many, many friends across the state."
