Kate Spade‘s funeral will be held in her hometown of Kansas City, Missouri, on Thursday, according to her obituary.
According to multiple reports, Spade’s service is scheduled for 3 p.m. Thursday at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Redemptorist Church, the same church where her grandparents were married, her father, Frank Brosnahan, told the Kansas City Star.
A large crowd is expected to be at the funeral to pay their respects and look back on the life of the beloved designer.
Spade was found dead by suicide on June 5 in her New York City home. She was 55 and left behind a teenage daughter and husband.
“To most of the world, she was Kate Spade, the beautiful embodiment of her brand and a glamorous cultural icon. Everyone knows of her global fame as a fashion designer responsible for the wildly popular and successful products that still capture the hearts and fancies of women everywhere," her obituary read.
“However, there was so much more to Katy and her life. Those who knew her personally can share stories of a phenomenally loving, giving, humble, warm and affectionate woman who tragically left this world far too soon. Katy’s determination was matched only by her generosity. Loyal almost to a fault, Katy could be counted on to support her friends and family in times of trouble without question or judgment. Her sense of humor was one of her most enduring and charming qualities. Her quick and infectious laugh still resonates in the minds of all who knew her."
“Katy was kind beyond words to describe," it continued. “She will be dearly missed by those who knew her and by the millions she inspired."
