The White House announced on Wednesday that Melania Trump will attend the Saturday funeral of Barbara Bush.

The White House announced on Wednesday that Melania Trump would attend the Saturday funeral of Barbara Bush. CNN notes that "it is common for sitting first ladies to attend the funerals of former first ladies." In 2016, Michelle Obama went to the funeral of Nancy Reagan, and, in 1994, Hillary Clinton was present at Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis' burial. The service for Barbara Bush will be held at Houston's St. Martin's Church. The former first lady, 92, passed away on Tuesday with her husband of 73 years at her side, according to ABC News. The legacy she leaves behind is significant. In addition to being married to the 41st president, George H. W. Bush, she was the mother of George W. Bush, the nation's 43rd leader.  Barbara Bush passed after a long battle with congestive heart failure and pulmonary disease, notes the New York Times. On Sunday, her husband's office said in a statement that she had "decided not to seek additional medical treatment and will instead focus on comfort care."
