The casket of former US First Lady Nancy Reagan arrived at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California on Wednesday 9 March. Following a small ceremony for friends and family earlier in the day, the casket arrived via a hearse and an accompanying motorcade to the library, where she will lie in repose on 9-10 March for public viewing. A funeral services is scheduled for 11 March before she's buried on the library grounds, next to the body of her husband, US President Ronald Reagan.
Nancy Reagan died on 6 March from congestive heart failure at age 94. The former actress was fiercely protective of husband Ronald Reagan through a Hollywood career, eight years in the White House, an assassination attempt and her husband's Alzheimer's disease.
A fixture of the 1980s, Reagan's most publicised project as first lady was the "Just Say No" anti-drug campaign. After her husband developed Alzheimer's disease, she became an advocate for discovering a cure.
