Donna Summer To Be Laid To Rest Tomorrow With Private Service

| Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadDonna Summer

Donna Summer Memorial Private

After the untimely passing of Donna Summer last Thursday, we reported that her family had decided to have a public memorial for the singer tomorrow.

However, now, that doesn’t seem to be the case, seeing as the church ceremony will be by invitation only.

The Disco Queen will be laid to rest in Nashville tomorrow and the church is expecting about 1,000 mourners to pay their last respects to the songbird.

Reportedly, Donna’s family will have a guest list for the funeral ceremony, with only family members and close friends making the cut.

Donna’s family have also been insisting that they don’t want the service to turn into a media field day, hoping to keep it as private as possible.

Though Summer, a music legend herself, worked with many other industry greats, there’s no word yet on which celebrities — if any — will be attending.

We miss you, Donna.

Despite Lung Cancer, Donna Summer Was NOT A Smoker!

Donna Summer no smoker

Donna Summer passed away on Thursday after a 10-month battle with lung cancer, but her family wants the world to know that the Queen of Disco was NOT a smoker!

Her family released a statement that says her cancer "was not related to smoking." In fact, she took very good care of herself.

A source who worked with Summer in 2008 has said:

"She was healthy, she was taking care of herself. She was healthy and energetic when I worked with her."

We probably won't learn too many other details surrounding her cancer and treatment because her family's statement continues:

"Ms. Summer was a non-smoker. Obviously, numerous factors can be attributed to the cause of cancer in general, but any details regarding the diagnosis and subsequent treatment of Ms. Summer's case remain between her family and team of doctors."

Rightfully so! We don't need anymore information because it won't bring her back. All we want to do is remember and honor her legacy!

The world will miss you, Donna! Rest in peace.
