    Fittingly, friends and family are going to pay their final respects to Farrah Fawcett at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels.

    A private funeral has been scheduled at the downtown landmark for 4 p.m. on Tuesday, according to the Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles. The service will be closed to the public and media.

    Fawcett died at an L.A.-area hospital Thursday morning after a two-year battle with cancer. On-again longtime love Ryan O'Neal and her close friend Alana Stewart were by her side.

    A source tells E! News that a similarly exclusive memorial will also be held Tuesday at the oceanside Jonathan Club in Santa Monica.

    If you're relegated to remembering Fawcett from the privacy of your own home, NBC is rebroadcasting its two-hour documentary special, Farrah's Story, tonight, and the E! special Michael & Farrah: Lost Icons premieres Saturday at 10:30 a.m.
