Foley Spokane memorial set for Nov. 1

A memorial for Tom Foley, former speaker of the House and U.S. ambassador to Japan, will be held at 11 a.m. Nov. 1 at St. Aloysius Church on the Gonzaga University campus.

Foley, a Spokane native who served 30 years in the House, died last Friday in Washington, D.C., of complications of a stroke.

The Spokane service will be the second memorial next week for Foley. A service in Statuary Hall of the U.S. Capitol is planned for Tuesday afternoon.
