Farrah Fawcett The funeral of Hollywood actress Farrah Fawcet will take place next Tuesday at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, Catholic cathedral of Los Angeles, church officials said.

Fawcett, 62, died overnight Thursday after suffering a long battle with cancer.

Her death in a Los Angeles hospital followed the world premier last month of Farrah’s Story, a video diary documentary chronicling the aging stars battle with cancer.

The documentary was effectively a self-penned obituary by the actress, who was bedridden and had lost her famous blonde hair by the time it was shown.

Former Charlie’s Angels star Fawcett, was first diagnosed with anal cancer in September 2006 and earlier this year it was announced the cancer had spread to her liver.

Long-time lover Ryan O’Neal, 68, announced earlier in the week that Fawcett had agreed to marry him. The two have been romantically involved in an off-and-on love affair since 1982 and have a son together, but have never married.
