Family and friends will gather to mourn the death of Farrah Fawcett during a private funeral service at the Catholic cathedral of Los Angeles next Tuesday, June 30.
The service for the former "Charlie's Angels" star will take place at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels at 7 p.m. ET, church officials told Reuters.
Fawcett, who died Thursday at the age of 62 after a long battle with cancer, will be laid to rest in a private ceremony open by invitation only.
Fawcett was diagnosed with anal cancer in September 2006 and, despite going into remission and enduring extensive chemotherapy and surgery both in the U.S. and Germany, it was revealed earlier this year that the cancer had spread to her liver. She stopped receiving treatment in May.
Fawcett documented the trials and tribulations of her battle with cancer in the NBC documentary "Farrah’s Story."
The funeral for the style icon will be organized by Fawcett’s longtime partner, Ryan O’Neal.
Shortly after Fawcett’s death, O'Neal told People magazine, "She's gone. She now belongs to the ages ... She's now with her mother and sister and her God. I loved her with all my heart. I will miss her so very, very much. She was in and out of consciousness. I talked to her all through the night. I told her how very much I loved her. She's in a better place now."
