Tawny Kitaen‘s family and closest friends gathered to remember the late actress one last time, with an intimate celebration of life in the town where she died.
Tawny’s brother, Jordan Kitaen, tells TMZ … her memorial service was held Monday at her ex-husband Chuck Finley‘s home in Newport Beach, CA. We’re told about 100 people attended, including the 2 daughters she had with Chuck.
As you can see, the program for Tawny’s memorial service remembered her as a “loving mother, daughter, sister, friend, artist … and now our angel.” The back of the program featured one of her paintings.
There was a musical element too … we’re told her nephew, Leo, played “Let It Be” on the violin and her friend, Victoria Shaw, sang an acapella version of “Never Alone.”
TMZ broke the story … 59-year-old Tawny died May 7 in Newport, not long after her father had passed. Jordan told us the loss of their dad was too much for Tawny to handle.
We’re told Tawny’s been cremated, but the family hasn’t decided what to do with her ashes yet. They’re also still awaiting the results of her autopsy.
