Elizabeth Edwards lived her life publically so it isn’t too much of a surprise that her funeral would also be a public event. After a long struggle with cancer, Elizabeth Edwards lost her battle. The family quickly put together her tribute which will be happening this weekend. So what are details of the Elizabeth Edwards upcoming funeral?
The public portion of the funeral will begin at 1 p.m. on December 11th in the Edwards’ home town of Raleigh, North Carolina. Serves will be at the Edenton Street United Methodist Church. This was the same church where the Edwards’ son Wade’s services were at when he died after a tragic car accident.
Following the public service there will be a private ceremony at the Oakwood Cemetery. And at this cemetery Elizabeth Edwards will be buried next to her son Wade.
Since Elizabeth Edwards knew her days were numbered and she would be passing on soon, she – no doubt – was involved in the planning of the funeral. She took time to not only write letters to her children full of life advice but also to decorate the family house for Christmas. So it would make sense that she also not only discussed, but helped plan her funeral, just so that it would take the pressure off the rest of the family.
