The funeral service for U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who died last week at age 90, will take place Thursday in San Francisco.

Feinstein’s funeral is set for 1 p.m. Thursday.

Though the public was initially invited, Feinstein’s office on Wednesday announced a change of plans: “Due to increased security, tomorrow’s memorial service for Senator Dianne Feinstein will no longer be open to the public. Only invited guests will have access to the service.”

Leading up to the service, Feinstein’s casket will lie in state at City Hall from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday. Members of the public are invited to pay their respects and sign a condolence book.

Following the funeral Thursday, the senator will be buried during a private, family-only ceremony.

Feinstein, a Democrat, served as a senator representing California from 1992 to 2023. She and Barbara Boxer, also elected that year, were the first women senators to represent California. Feinstein previously served as mayor of San Francisco from 1978 to 1988.
