Former President Jimmy Carter to Honor Wife Rosalynn at Memorial ServiceNovember 28, 2023
Former President Jimmy Carter will attend a memorial service for his wife, Rosalynn, on Tuesday in Atlanta, marking only his second public appearance since entering hospice care in February. Carter, 99, did not appear at a tribute to Rosalynn on Monday at the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum, instead staying nearby at The Carter Center, according to the organization’s CEO. The memorial service will also be attended by all the living first ladies as well as President Joe Biden and former President Bill Clinton. Tuesday’s event will be followed by a funeral for Rosalynn on Wednesday. Since moving to hospice care, Carter has made only one other public appearance at the Plains Peanut Festival in September. The couple had been married for 77 years.
