Living US presidents and first ladies will head to Georgia today for the memorial service of former first lady and renowned mental health advocate Rosalynn Carter.

Carter died on November 19 at the age of 96, just two days after entering hospice care.

On Tuesday, a private tribute service will take place at Glenn Memorial United Methodist Church at Emory University in Atlanta.

Former president Jimmy Carter, who is 99 and has been in hospice care for months, is expected to attend. He will be joined by President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden, as well as ex-president Bill Clinton and ex-first ladies Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush, Michelle Obama and Melania Trump.

The funeral services honoring Carter began on Monday with a motorcade procession carrying her to the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library. There, she lay in repose with hundreds of people paying their respects.

On Tuesday morning, the former first lady’s coffin will be transported to the church service, where country music legends Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood will perform.

This will be followed by a private funeral service for friends and family on Wednesday.
