Rosalynn Carter Memorial Service Brings Out Former and Current Presidents, First Ladies

HeadlineNov 29, 2023

In Atlanta, President Biden and Jill Biden, Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joined other current and former leaders to pay tribute to Rosalynn Carter at her memorial service. Ninety-nine-year-old Jimmy Carter, who is now in home hospice care, was also in attendance. Rosalynn Carter was active throughout her husband’s political career, acting as adviser and strategist. She’s also remembered as an advocate for mental healthcare and unpaid home caregivers. This is her son James Earl “Chip” Carter III.

James Earl “Chip” Carter III: “Mom was always well informed on the issues of the day. In the White House, Mom asked Dad so many questions that he finally said that she should attend cabinet meetings. So she did and caught a lot of flak for that.”
