Peaches Geldof funeral to be held Easter Monday

By Daniel S Levine,

The family of Peaches Geldof, the daughter of musician Bob Geldof, has set her funeral for Easter Monday. She was just 25-years-old when she was found dead on April 7. Her death remains unexplained.

The U.K. Press Association reports that the funeral will be held at the same Kent church where her mother’s was held. Her mother, Paula Yates, died in 2000 of an accidental heroin overdose at age 41. Geldof’s father, Bob Geldof, is best known for organizing the charity concert Live Aid.

Her family said that the funeral will be private.

Geldof was found dead in Kent on April 7 after police were called to her home. Although an autopsy was performed a couple of days later, her death still remains a mystery.

“At this stage, the death is being treated as unexplained and sudden,” Kent police told the BBC on April 7.

Geldof had made a name for herself as a popular television host and writer in the U.K. She also worked as a model. She married musician Tom Cohen in 2012 and the two had two young children; Astala, 23 months, and Phaedra, 11 months. Just before her death, Geldof used Instagram to share pictures of Phaedra.
