Peaches Geldof: Funeral Scheduled for Easter MondayBy: Kimberly Ripley - April 19, 2014
Peaches Geldof will be laid to rest on Easter Monday. The daughter of Bob Geldof and the late Paula Yates was found dead in her apartment on April 7th. Officials say no foul play was involved in the 25-year-old mother of two’s death, but the cause of her passing remains unexplained.
The funeral service for Peaches will take place at the same church where both she and her parents were married–St. Mary Magdalene and St. Lawrence Church in Davington. It will be a private service.
It could still be one or two more weeks before the toxicology report on Peaches Geldof arrives. The results of her autopsy were deemed inconclusive. Authorities say detectives are still in the process of investigating the surrounding circumstances of Geldof’s untimely death and will hand their report to a coroner. It is likely at that point that an inquest will be held. This is a legal procedure in the U.K. used for determining the facts when an unexplained or violent death has occurred.
Peaches Geldof was initially well known for her teenage rebellion. Often in trouble, she frequently drew attention in the public eye. She settled down, however, and later became known for her successes as a model, writer, and TV presenter. She embraced motherhood. She and husband Tom Cohen, who survives her, had two sons together. One of those sons, 11-month-old Phaedra, was reportedly by her side when she died.
It is heartbreaking when a beautiful young mother dies at just 25 years old, leaving behind two very small children. Hopefully the answers reached in the inquest will be ones the family can use to find closure from this horrific ordeal.
As Peaches Geldof is laid to rest on Monday, may her loved ones find some sort of solace–the kind that seems almost unfathomable when someone so young and so vibrant is taken away much too soon.
