Rush Limbaugh’s Widow Confirms ‘Greatest’ Rumor About Death Certificate

Kathryn Adams Limbaugh, widow of conservative radio legend Rush Limbaugh, appeared on the Glenn Beck radio program on Tuesday for an interview, where she confirmed a rumor about the radio host’s death certificate.

During the interview, Kathryn reflected on her husband’s life and legacy, stating that one of Rush’s greatest attributes was that “he was so humble. He had the biggest heart. He was so sincere, [and] he never forgot the little guy.”

She was later asked about whether rumors that Rush’s death certificate lists his occupation as “Radio’s Greatest of All Time” were true.

Laughing, Kathryn said: “Yes. We have to be on brand at all times.”

“It was a way to tweak the media as a final goodbye from Rush, which we know he certainly would have loved,” she added.

Beck also asked Kathryn about her 2010 wedding to Rush — specifically questioning whether Elton John, who played at the wedding, knew that she was marrying the conservative talk radio legend.

“He did!” she responded. “And this may be breaking news, but I believe that Sir Elton John and Rush are actually very, very similar. They had quite a similar demeanor off of their performance personality. I believe that they both were so hard-working, they both were at the top of their game, so to speak, they both loved their audience… so in many respects, they were very similar.”

Rush Limbaugh passed away in February 2021 at the age of 70 following a battle with lung cancer. The legendary broadcaster received his Stage 4 diagnosis in January 2020.

Limbaugh began his nationally syndicated “Rush Limbaugh Show” in 1988, and soon became a household name in conservative circles — speaking from his “golden EIB microphone” to the American people about conservative principles and advocating for conservative lawmakers and candidates. The conservative radio star was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 1993 and the National Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame in 1998.

In Limbaugh’s final broadcast, the radio legend revealed that he had outlived his prognosis — stating that he was “feeling pretty good.”

“I wasn’t expected to be alive today,” Limbaugh said. “I wasn’t expected to make it to October, and then to November, and then to December. And yet, here I am, and today, got some problems, but I’m feeling pretty good today.”

He was also awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by then-President Donald Trump during the State of the Union Address in 2020, which was soon after he had received his cancer diagnosis.

“Rush Limbaugh: Thank you for your decades of tireless devotion to our country,” Trump declared.
