The former First Lady, who was 92 years old when she died on Tuesday, will be in the church from noon Houston time to midnight Houston time.

St. Martin's Episcopal Church is located just a few blocks from the home where she and her husband have lived since 1992. She requested a simple funeral at the church where they have been members for 50 years.

The funeral will be attended by numerous notables, including Bill and Hillary Clinton, Barack and Michelle Obama, and First Lady Melania Trump. It is invitation only, and it will, of course, be attended by Bush's family.

According to People, President Donald Trump will not attend the funeral, in order to “avoid disruptions."

"The former first lady selected three people to deliver eulogies at Saturday’s funeral: son Jeb Bush, friend Susan Baker, and historian Jon Meacham," added People.

Her family has been remembering her over the past few days. Her husband released a touching and faith-filled statement and her granddaughter remembered her fondly in a heartwarming post.

In related news, the family is also celebrating the birth of a new baby—the eighth great-grandchildren of the former first couple
