Houston, TX — Funeral arrangements were announced late Tuesday for former first lady Barbara Bush.
According to a post on the George Bush Presidential Library Foundation website, the public will be able to pay their respects to Mrs. Bush on Friday, April 20th. She will lay in repose from noon to midnight at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church in Houston.
The invitational-only funeral will be Saturday at 11 a.m. at St. Martin’s Church, which she and former President George H.W. Bush regularly attended. The guest list has not yet been announced.
