Which U.S. President lost both his wife and mother on Valentine's Day?

Answer:

THEODORE ROOSEVELT

Theodore Roosevelt's mother and wife died only hours apart on Valentine's Day in 1884. Each loss was an unexpected shock. His 48-year-old mother, Martha "Mittie" Roosevelt, had been taken ill and succumbed to typhoid fever. On the same day, his wife of four years, Alice Lee, died of Bright’s disease, a severe kidney ailment. Only two days before her death, Alice Lee had given birth to the couple’s daughter, Alice. In his diary, Roosevelt marked Valentine's Day 1884 with a black “X” and wrote, "The light has gone out of my life."
