First Lady Michelle Obama will travel to Palm Desert, California, to attend the funeral of former First Lady Betty Ford, the White House announced on Monday.

The service will take place on Tuesday, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will also attend, along with her husband, former President Bill Clinton.

As previously reported, Mrs. Ford  -- who was married to the late President Gerald Ford for 58 years -- passed away last Friday at the Eisenhower Medical Center in Rancho Mirage, California with her family at her side.
