The Carter Center said late Sunday that ceremonies celebrating former first lady Rosalynn Carter will take place the week after Thanksgiving in Atlanta and Sumter County, Georgia.

Rosalynn Carter, the wife of former President Jimmy Carter, died Sunday in the couple’s hometown of Plains. She was 96 years old.

The Carter Center, an Atlanta-based nonprofit founded by the couple, said Rosalynn Carter’s remains will travel by hearse the morning of Monday, Nov. 27, from Phoebe Sumter Medical Center to Georgia Southwestern State University in Americus. The public will be invited to pay respects along the motorcade route, which will be shared in the coming days, and wreaths will be laid at the university.

The Carter family motorcade will then travel to the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum in Atlanta, where the former first lady will lie in repose. The public will be invited to pay respects from 6 until 10 p.m.

The motorcade will next travel on Tuesday, Nov. 28, to Glenn Memorial Church at Emory University in Atlanta. A tribute service will be held at the church with invited guests that afternoon.

On Wednesday, Nov. 29, the funeral procession will arrive at Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains. A service will be held for family and invited friends, before Rosalynn Carter’s casket is brought to the Carter family residence for private interment. The public will be able to view the motorcade in designated areas between the church and downtown Plains.

Jimmy Carter, 99, has been in home hospice in Plains since February in the same house where he and Rosalynn Carter lived in together since 1961, save their time in the Governor’s Mansion and the White House.

The couple celebrated their 77th wedding anniversary earlier this year.

The Carter Center will post more details in the coming days about events for Rosalynn Carter, including updates to the schedule, at
