Final Farewell For Former US First Lady Rosalynn Carter
Washington, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 30th Nov, 2023) Mourners paid final tribute Wednesday to former US first lady Rosalynn Carter at a private funeral service attended by a frail Jimmy Carter, before she was buried at their home in the small town of Plains, Georgia.
Jimmy Carter, 99, joined the funeral in a wheelchair after also attending a public ceremony Tuesday in Atlanta where two of his White House successors -- President Joe Biden and former president Bill Clinton -- as well as all five living first ladies paid their last respects.
The couple married in 1946, forming a famously close union that lasted 77 years.
They met in Plains as children and returned to live there after Jimmy Carter lost the 1980 election to Ronald Reagan.
After the service, the hearse was driven through the town's tiny center to the Carters' modest house, where Rosalynn Carter was buried on a sloping lawn, US media reported, adding that the former president will one day be buried beside her.
