Peaches Geldof receives musical tributes

Apr 22 2014, 3:28am CDT | by

Peaches Geldof was remembered with "words, music, and poetry" at her funeral yesterday (04.21.14).

Over 150 mourners - including Kate Moss and Jamie Hince, Alexa Chung, Jaime Winstone, the Duchess of York, and Nick Grimshaw - crammed into St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence Church in Davington, Kent to pay their respects to the late star, following her tragic death earlier this month.

Parish priest Rev Tracey Bateson -- who led the service -- said: "It was in tribute to the person.

"Everyone conveyed that in their own ways through words, music and poetry."

Peaches' father Bob Geldof was among the speakers at the service, and was determined it should be an "upbeat" celebration of his daughter's life.

A source said: "The service was upbeat. It was highlighting the good moments. Bob made it clear it was to be a positive day about celebrating the best of her life."

Peaches body was carried into the church in a sky-blue coffin, which was adorned with a picture of her, husband Thomas Cohen, their sons Astala, 23 months, and Phaedra, 11 months, and their pets, as well as peach tree branches on the sides.

Following the service, it is believed many of the mourners headed back to Bob's home for a wake, with a white marquee erected in the grounds of his home.

It is believed Peaches - whose funeral took place at the church where she and her husband married in 2012, and where her mother Paula Yates was also laid to rest in 2000 - will be cremated today (04.22.14) and her ashes scattered at her father's house.

Her death remains unexplained, with a post-mortem examination found to be inconclusive. A toxicology report is expected to be concluded in the coming weeks.

Jul 25 2014 5:30pm CDT | Source: Fish Wrapper

Peaches Geldof passed away a few months ago, and this week we learned that the official cause of death was a heroin overdose.

The last interview: Peaches Geldof on fame, heroin and Elliot Smith

Jul 25 2014 9:23am CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

One of the first things I told her was that I knew very little of her back story, and Peaches laughed in a fulsome way that I quickly came to see as an essential part of her personality. There was something overflowing about her. An avidity, combined with enormous mental energy. I think the laughter was partly surprise — intentionally, I hadn’t done my homework — and partly relief. ‘The worst thing,’ she told me, ‘is shaking someone’s hand and realising full well the ...
