Family members shared a final farewell to Natasha Richardson at her funeral service yesterday in the New York town where she wed Liam Neeson.
The tragic actress died after a fall while skiing on the slopes of Mont Tremblant in Montreal, Canada on Monday that left her with a serious brain injury.
She was flown to New York by her husband Neeson on Tuesday where relatives, including her actress mother Vanessa Redgrave and sister Joely Richardson, stayed by her bedside until her life support machine was switched off on Wednesday. She died hours later, aged 45.
The actress' mahogany casket, marked on its side with an Irish symbol representing friendship, love and loyalty, left Manhattan, New York at approximately 9.30am local time on Saturday, after a one-day wake.
Neeson was among the pallbearers for his wife's coffin at the private service yesterday afternoon at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Millbrook, New York - near the home where they exchanged vows in 1994 and raised their two children.
The actor arrived with sons Micheal, 13, and Daniel, 12, and mother-in-law, Vanessa Redgrave. Richardson's aunt, Lynn Redgrave, and sister Joely Richardson followed.
Actor Ralph Fiennes was also at the funeral, which was open to family and close friends.
Richardson will be laid to rest at a nearby cemetery where her grandmother, Rachel Kempson Redgrave, was buried in 2003.
