TMZ has also learned that after an autopsy was performed on Fisher, a death certificate issued on Friday does not list a cause of death because that is still not clear. The L.A. County Coroner’s Office will conduct more tests of the 60-year-old to learn what caused her heart to stop while returning to Los Angeles on a United Airlines flight on Dec. 27.
Only family and friends are invited to the Forest Lawn funeral, but arrangements will be made for a memorial for the public at a later date. Those plans are being placed on the back burner to allow Fisher’s daughter (and Reynolds’ granddaughter) Billie Lourd time to mourn.
Although a family plot was available at Hollywood Forever cemetery near Paramount Studios, family instead chose to buy plots at Forest Lawn “because Debbie loved Liberace and the family felt she’d want to be near him,” TMZ said.
Reynolds died following a stroke on Wednesday at the age of 84, just one day after the death of her daughter, “Star Wars” heroine Fisher, who passed the previous day.
