The First Lady of the United States made her second trip to Chicago, Thursday, to attend her second funeral this week.

Michelle Obama arrived in Chicago early Thursday morning to attend a funeral for Dr. James Bowman, father of White House Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett, according to a White House release. 

Commuters saw a motorcade traveling down the Stevenson Expressway, apparently on their way from Midway airport.

The guidance did not say where the services were being held.

Jarrett and Obama both hail from Chicago.

It's her second service this week. On Monday, Mrs. Obama attended the ceremony for Maggie Daley, Chicago's former first lady at Old St. Pats Church.

Obama will return to Washington D.C. this afternoon, the release said.
