Rivers, who began her career in the entertainment industry in 1965, passed away at the age of 81 on Thursday after a botched throat surgery at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, per The Associated Press.

The host of the E! network’s “Fashion Police,” a program which ripped or praised celebrities for how they were dressed at red carpet events, was 81 years old when she passed.

Her casket was transported to North Bergen’s Garden State Crematory, located at 4101 John F. Kennedy Boulevard, from the New York’s Frank E. Campbell funeral home in the Upper East Side Saturday morning.

The Associated Press also reports that celebrities such as shock jock Howard Stern, actors Hugh Jackman and Matthew Broderick, as well as moguls Donald Trump and Steve Forbes, were just a few of the notable faces that attended Rivers funeral.
