Nancy Reagan died last Sunday at the age of 94 of congestive heart failure in Bel Air, Calif., prompting a wave of tributes to the widow of former President Ronald Reagan.

She will lie in repose Wednesday and Thursday at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif.

A private funeral service is scheduled for Friday morning, and she will be buried next to her husband on the library grounds.

Obama, however, will be heading to Austin, Texas, where he is headlining the annual South by Southwest Festival, an art and technology event. His plans were made before Nancy Reagan's death.

He plans to encourage entrepreneurs and inventors to focus their efforts on boosting political participating and battling climate change in his address.

The president on Monday ordered flags flown at half-staff in Reagan’s honor and said he is grateful for her “warm and generous advice” to him and his family.

“I want to be fair, and I’m as anti-Obama’s policies as anyone running for president, but I don’t know exactly what it is he has going on at the same time that wouldn’t allow him to do it,” the GOP presidential candidate said on Hugh Hewitt’s radio broadcast. "Being president’s an important job, and I would have liked him to have gone."
