Funeral for vice president's mother set for Tuesday
 
(CNN) -- President Obama and the first lady will travel to Delaware on Tuesday to attend the funeral of Vice President Joe Biden's mother.
Catherine Eugenia "Jean" Finnegan Biden died Friday at the family's home. She was 92.
The funeral mass will be celebrated at 11 a.m. ET Tuesday at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Wilmington.
"At 92, she was the center of our family and taught all of her children that family is to be treasured, loyalty is paramount, and faith will guide you through the tough times. She believed in us and, because of that, we believed in ourselves," Biden said in a statement Friday.
The vice president's father, Joseph Robinette Biden Sr., who was married to Jean Biden for 61 years, died in 2002.
The vice president was Jean Biden's eldest son. Her other survivors include sons James Biden of Pennsylvania and Francis Biden of Florida, and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
The Obamas are to arrive at New Castle County Airport about an hour before the service and are to return to Washington by 2 p.m.
