Cathriona White’s funeral will take place this weekend in Tipperary


Cathriona White will be laid to rest this Saturday in her native Tipperary.

The 30-year-old was found dead at her home in California last Monday September 28, with the cause of death believed to be suicide.

A death notice was posted to last night, detailing funeral arrangements for Cathriona, following the release of her body by the LA County coronor's office.

The removal will take place tomorrow, October 9, from White's Funeral Home in the village of Cappawhite, with a funeral mass the following day at 11.30am.

"Cathriona was a shining light in our lives who was loved deeply by her entire family," the Whites said in a statement last week.

The make-up artist had been dating actor Jim Carrey on-and-off for the last four years, though earlier this week it was revealed she was legally married to another man at her time of death.

"She had a husband, we have a husband as next of kin," a spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter. 

"We're not releasing any more information on next of kin, but we do have her as married."

A source close to Truman Show star Jim alleges that Cathriona was married but legally separated and planning to file for divorce.

"As far as Jim was concerned, Cat was separated from her husband and was going to start divorce proceedings in December," the insider told Us Weekly.

Officials confirmed that Cathriona left several suicide notes at her rented home in Sherman Oaks, along with four different kinds of prescription medication, including Ambien, Percocet, Zofran and Propranolol.

Since the make-up artist's apparent suicide, Jim has been helping Cathriona's family in a number of ways, including putting them up in a hotel in LA and helping them make plans to have her body repatriated to Ireland.
