Joan Rivers' Funeral Plans Finalized - Services in New York on Sunday

Joan Rivers' funeral plans have been finalized - the funeral will take place in New York this weekend.

The 81-year-old comedienne, who passed away yesterday following surgical complications, will be laid to rest at Temple Emanu-El in Manhattan on Sunday, Us Weekly has confirmed.

Elizabeth Fezrine, a spokeswoman for the congregation, said details about the service - including the time and whether the public will be allowed to attend - are not yet known.

Joan's daughter Melissa announced last night her mother had died at lunch time following a week on life support at Mount Sinai hospital in New York.

Joan had been rushed via ambulance to the medical centre after she suffered a cardiac and respiratory arrest while undergoing a routine operation on her vocal cords at Yorkville Endoscopy clinic last Thursday.

The 'Fashion Police' host was placed in a medically-induced coma after the health scare, but showed signs of improvement on Wednesday (03.09.14) when she was moved out of intensive care and into a private room at the hospital.

Yorkville Endoscopy clinic is now being investigated by the New York State Department of Health, spokesman James O'Hara told CNN.

Meanwhile, Melissa, 46 - Joan's only child - has thanked fans for their continuous love and support.

She said in a statement: ''Cooper [my son] and I have found ourselves humbled by the outpouring of love, support, and prayers we have received from around the world. They have been heard and appreciated.''
