The state funeral for Dame Olivia Newton-John is scheduled to take place in Australia in December.
One of the singer’s favorite locations, Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens, will host a memorial service for the late “Grease” actress who passed away from breast cancer on August 8 at the age of 73. The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra is scheduled to perform.
Family friend and entertainment reporter Peter Ford told “The Morning Show” that as follows: “People may question, “Why there?” That was, after all, one of Olivia’s favorite spots. Her mother used to accompany her there.
“In fact, her mother has a park bench in the nearby gardens. They frequently traveled to where she had formerly lived, not far away in Jolimont.
Olivia’s family had a “very intimate” memorial service for the late actress in California in September.
A family representative at the time stated: “Last week, there was a tiny and very private family celebration in California to honor Olivia.
“At this point, the family would prefer to keep the specifics of the incident private.”
She passed away at her California ranch while being “surrounded by family and friends,” according to the actress’ husband John Easterling, who shared the news of her passing on social media in August.
The Grammy-winning artist, who had three bouts with breast cancer, supported breast cancer research.
The Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund, which supports research into plant therapies for cancer, has also received support from John, who wed Olivia in 2008. John also urged supporters to send money to the foundation.
