Looking back at the legacy of Former First Lady Nancy Reagan 

First Lady Michelle Obama and former President George W. Bush were among the dignitaries who gathered at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California to pay their final respects to Nancy Reagan at a private funeral on Friday.

Mrs. Reagan died of congestive heart failure in her Bel-Air home Sunday at the age of 94.

Family and friends remembered her life from Hollywood to the White House, and more than five decades by husband Ronald Reagan’s side.

The ceremony was attended by notable political figures, like former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton, former First Lady Laura Bush, former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver. Notable figures from the world of entertainment also attended, from Wayne Newton and Tom Selleck, to Gary Sinise, and even Mr. T, who became close with Mrs. Reagan during her "Just Say No" anti-drug campaign

After the funeral, Mrs. Reagan will be laid to rest next to her husband in his hillside tomb.
