EXCLUSIVE! A Peek Inside Joan Rivers' Memorial Service! See The Program & Get The Details HERE!

joan rivers funeral ceremony details

This sounds like a ceremony Joan Rivers would DEFINITELY have approved of!

The comedienne’s funeral service was held today in New York City at Temple Emanu-El, and by all accounts, it was perfection!

Our sources tell us that Hugh Jackman got up on stage and sang a tribute, and Howard Stern kept the crowd laughing, which we have to imagine is exactly what she would have wanted!

There were thousands of people outside, paying their respects, and inside, her celeb friends like Sarah Jessica Parker, Whoopi Goldberg, Barbara Walters, and many others were there. Her fellow Fashion Police critic Kelly Osbourne was in attendance and was very emotional about the sudden passing of her friend. Luckily, she had Rosie O'Donnell there to comfort her.

By all accounts, it was an "astoundingly beautiful ceremony!"

Joan, you are loved and deeply missed!

joan rivers body taken for cremation

This is just heartbreaking!

Joan Rivers’ casket left the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Home in New York City on Saturday, carried by six pallbearers in suits. They loaded it into a hearse, which made it's way to a crematorium on Saturday, in preparation for Sunday’s funeral at Temple Emanu-El.

Her daughter, Melissa Rivers, along with her son 13-year-old son Cooper, stood by, saying a last farewell to her mother, touching the casket one final time.

Rivers’ service will start at 11am in NYC, and it will be a private affair. Some reports have said that following the service, Joan’s remains will be taken to Forest Lawn Cemetery in Los Angeles.

This is such a sad day, but we know Melissa will stay strong and do everything just as her mother wanted it!

Throat Clinic Where Joan Rivers Died Definitely Had The Equipment To Handle ANY Scenario!

| Filed under: Legal MattersJoan RiversHealthMedicine

throat clinic where joan rivers died passed the subsequent investigation and review

They had the resources to handle any possible scenario!

The clinic in New York called Yorkville Endoscopy where Joan Rivers was at when she went into respiratory and cardiac arrest had all of the equipment that any solid hospital has including a state of the art cardiac defibrillator, and medical equipment that helps clear a patient's airway.

Plus the nurses and physicians who work there were all Advanced Cardiac Life Support certified!

Those details will come into play as the clinic undergoes an investigation by the New York Health Department who will review Joan's case, as well as interview all of the staff who were there on that most unfortunate day!

At the time, Joan was undergoing an elective vocal cord procedure at the outpatient clinic when she suddenly stopped breathing during the endoscopy.

Also under review will be whether Joan was given anesthesia during the operation, and whom was the one who administered that. Apparently though the clinic's staff includes in house anesthesiologists whom are all board certified.

Whether Joan's tragic death was just a cruel twist of fate or if Yorkville Endoscopy was somehow responsible - we're sure the NY Health Department will figure all of that out once their investigation is complete.

No word yet though on when that might be!

One Of The People Joan Rivers Wanted To Perform At Her Funeral Won't Be Able To Make It!

joan rivers singer not perfume funeral

Looks like the outrageous funeral Joan Rivers had planned for won't come to fruition just as she had outlined.

In addition to a Meryl Streep crying in five different accents at her funeral, Joan wanted Bobby Vinton to pick up her head and sing Mr. Lonely instead of a normal eulogy.

Unfortunately, Bobby, a friend of Joan's, is getting over pneumonia and he won't be able to croon his hit, but he'll try to make up for it, maybe with a video message, according to his rep!

Well, we hope Meryl makes an appearance at the funeral this Sunday. Joan deserves to be sent off exactly the way she wanted!

bergdorf goodman gives joan rivers a touching window tribute

Awwww! This was such a nice thing for them to do!

Joan Rivers sadly passed away yesterday at the age of 81.

The world of comedy has lost a legend, as the copious amounts of tributes can show you, but so did the fashion world!

One of the most poignant tributes to Joan we've seen has got to be this one from Bergdorf Goodman in New York City!

They gave Joan her very own window display that was simple… and included The Muppets!!

Well, Miss Piggy, but still.

Their tribute was:
