Michelle Obama, Joe Biden attend Maggie Daley funeral services

Michelle Obama and Vice President Biden attended funeral services Monday for Maggie Daley, wife of former Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley.

Obama and Biden were also joined by Jill Biden, Education Secretary Arne Duncan, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett and White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley, brother to the former mayor.

Besides White House dignitaries, current Chicago mayor and former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, as well as both of Illinois's senators, Mark Kirk (R) and Dick Durbin (D), attended, according to NBC Chicago.

Daley died on Thanksgiving Day, on Nov. 24. She had been battling cancer for a decade.

"Michelle and I were deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Maggie Daley," President Obama said in a statement shortly after Daley died. "Maggie was an extraordinary woman who dedicated her life to public service. While she will be sorely missed, her initiatives on behalf of Chicago’s youth live on as national models for how to create environments for children to learn and grow outside the classroom."
