The House will hold a memorial ceremony for the late Rep. Louise Slaughter Wednesday at 4 p.m. in Statuary Hall in the Capitol.

The service will be open to members of Congress, Slaughter’s family, invited guests, and credentialed media.

Slaughter died in March shortly after being hospitalized for a fall. The 88-year-old New York Democrat was the oldest sitting member of Congress. She made House history as the first woman to chair the Rules Committee.

Dozens of lawmakers attended the official funeral service for Slaughter in Rochester on March 23.

House Speaker Paul D. Ryan and Senate and House Minority Leaders Charles E. Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are scheduled to attend the memorial Wednesday.
