WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Clinton family says Dorothy Rodham, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's mother and former President Bill Clinton's mother-in-law, has died at age 92.

A statement from the family says Rodham died shortly after midnight on Tuesday in Washington, surrounded by her family.

Secretary Clinton cancelled a planned trip to London and Istanbul to be at her mother's side.

The Clinton family plans a private memorial service for Rodham. Clinton has often credited her mother with inspiring her, saying Rodham overcame adversity and abandonment in her own early life.
