Funeral services for Barbara Bush are planned for 11 a.m. Saturday at St. Martin's Episcopal Church in Houston, which she and former President George H.W. Bush regularly attended.

According to a post on the George Bush Presidential Library Foundation website, Barbara Bush will lie in repose from noon to midnight Friday at the church for members of the public wishing to pay respects.

The funeral service Saturday is by invitation only.

Burial will be on the grounds of the Bush library at Texas A&M University in College Station, about 100 miles (161 kilometers) northwest of Houston.  The couple's 3-year-old daughter, Robin, who died in 1953 of leukemia, also is buried at the site.

The White House says Melania Trump will attend the funeral.

Former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton and their wives also plan to attend funeral services.

Bill Clinton dashed Mrs. Bush's husband's re-election hopes en route to winning the 1992 election. Clinton since grew close to former President George H.W. Bush and Barbara, and would visit them at their summer home in Kennebunkport, Maine. Clinton often joked he spent so much time with the Bushes that he'd become like a member of the family.

Former first ladies Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama will accompany their husbands to Saturday's funeral in Houston.

Bush's son, former President George W. Bush says his mother did not fear death because she believed in an afterlife and that she would be "wonderfully received in the arms of a loving God."

The former president appeared Wednesday with his wife Laura Bush on the Fox Business Network. He says his mother "was warm and wonderful, until you got out of line."

George W. Bush says that during a recent visit with his mother, she told her doctor that her son "is the way he is" because she "drank and smoked when (she) was pregnant with him."

Laura Bush says her mother-in-law had long supported literacy campaigns and believed "if everyone could read and write, a lot of problems would be solved."

And - President Donald Trump is ordering U.S. flags to be flown at half-staff in honor of Bush.

In a proclamation issued Tuesday night, Trump says Americans mourn the loss of "an outstanding and memorable woman of character." He calls Mrs. Bush "an advocate of the American family" who "lived a life that reminds us always to cherish our relationships with friends, family, and all acquaintances."

The proclamation calls for flags to remain lowered until sunset on the day of her burial
