WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will travel to Delaware Tuesday to attend funeral services for Vice President Joe Biden’s mother.

Jean Finnegan Biden died Friday after falling ill in recent days. She had suffered a broken hip in a fall in March 2009. In a statement, the vice president said his 92-year-old mother died surrounded by family and loved ones.

A wake is being held Monday. The Obamas will leave Washington Tuesday morning to attend the funeral at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Wilmington.
