First Lady Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton are scheduled to attend Nancy Reagan’s private funeral Friday at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley.
President Obama, however, won’t attend and will instead be at the South by Southwest tech conference in Austin, Texas, according to several media outlets.
In a talk Tuesday, Michelle Obama paid tribute to Reagan, saying she “reminded us of the importance of women’s leadership.” She said Reagan offered helpful advice when she became first lady.
Reagan, 94, died Sunday of congestive heart failure at her home in Bel-Air.
When the library was built, the Reagans decided they wanted to be buried together on the west side of the property, facing the Pacific Ocean, said Melissa Giller, a spokeswoman for the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Library.
“They had such a true love affair,” Giller said. “She’s missed him since the day he passed, and I’m sure they are quite happy to be together again.”
