American businesswoman and philanthropist, also known as the younger daughter of U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson and his wife, former First Lady Lady Bird Johnson. She has an older sister Lynda Bird.
She was sixteen when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas on 22 November 1963. Johnson heard of the assassination while attending a Spanish class at the National Cathedral School. She was unaware whether her father had been injured as well but realized he had been sworn in as the 36th President of the United States when Secret Service agents showed up on her school campus a few hours later.
Since 1993, Johnson has been the Chairman of the Board and manager of LBJ Asset Management Partners, a family office, as well as Chairman of the Board of BusinesSuites, a national operator of executive suites, which she co-founded with her husband in 1989.
On 6 August 1966, Johnson married Air National Guardsman Patrick John "Pat" Nugent in front of 700 guests at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. The wedding was broadcast on television (drawing 55 million viewers) and was featured on the 19 August 1966 cover of Life magazine. They had four children: Patrick Lyndon (born 1967), now a lawyer and a pilot in San Antonio; Nicole Marie (born 1970); Rebekah Johnson (born 1974); and Claudia Taylor Nugent (born 1976). The couple later divorced, and the marriage was annulled by the Catholic Church in August 1979.
On 3 March 1984, she married Ian J. Turpin (born 1944), a Scottish-born Canadian financier; he is now president of LBJ Asset Management Partners at LBJ Ranch. Through that marriage, she has a stepson.
In April 2010, she was diagnosed with Guillain–Barré syndrome, also known as Landry's paralysis, an autoimmune disorder affecting the peripheral nervous system, and was flown to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, to begin treatment. Johnson returned to Austin in May 2010. Her doctor called her case "less severe than usual," and she experienced a full recovery.
