Memorial services are set for Sunday and Wednesday to remember President Emeritus Robben Wright Fleming, who died Monday at age 93.
Sunday’s service will be at 1:30 p.m. Sunday at the First Presbyterian Church of Ann Arbor, 1432 Washtenaw Ave.

A second tribute is planned for 11 a.m. Wednesday in the Lydia Mendelsshon Theatre. A reception follows in the Vandenberg Room of the Michigan League.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to: Arbor Hospice; the Sally Fleming Master Class at the School of Music, Theatre & Dance; or the Alzheimer’s Association.

Fleming served twice as U-M’s leader — from 1968 to 1978 and then as interim president in 1988.
