*Oprah Winfrey was in Winston-Salem on Monday to help arrange the memorial service for her late friend and mentor Maya Angelou.

As previously reported, Angelou’s family has arranged a private memorial service in Wake Forest University’s Wait Chapel at 10 a.m. Saturday. Angelou’s family decided to have a closed service for family and friends only, due to limited seating capacity.

“We are limiting access to the campus, to those who are invited and to those who need to be here,” said University Spokesman Kevin Cox.

According to Fox 8, Winfrey and a handful of others were inside Wait Chapel for at least a half hour Monday, until 1 p.m., discussing seating arrangements, where the family will sit and how the chapel will be decorated.

For the university, it’s an honor to host the services for a woman they say gave them so much.

“We expect that her impact on us will go on for years and years,” said Cox.

It is unclear as to who will be in attendance, but university officials say they’re confident they can keep them and the campus safe.
