A Mass is scheduled for Tuesday at Church of the Divine Child in Dearborn, Michigan, five days after Dingell died at his home at age 92. The Michigan Democrat served 59 years in the House, retiring at the end of 2014.

Former constituents and admirers lined up Monday at a performing arts center in Dearborn to pay their respects during a daylong visitation. Dingell's casket was in a ballroom while oversized photos of his life were displayed in the lobby.

Rep. Debbie Dingell stayed to greet everyone throughout the day. She was elected to her husband's seat in 2014.

There will be a second funeral Mass on Thursday in Washington.
