The comic of over 50 years and reality TV star's funeral is planned for Sunday, September 7 at Temple Emanu-El in New York, Us Weekly reported.

"It is a terribly sad day for all of us. We mourn with her family, friends and all those millions to whom she brought laughter and joy," Rabbi Joshua M. Davidson said in a statement obtained by Us.

Joan, who starred in Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best and won the second season of The Celebrity Apprentice, died on Thursday at the age of 81 after her daughter Melissa Rivers decided to take her off life support so she could pass away comfortably in her well-decorated private hospital suite.

About one week ago, Joan went into cardiac and respiratory arrest as a result of a "routine" outpatient procedure on her vocal cord. The Fashion Police host was then rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, where she was placed in a medically-induced coma before being put on life support a couple of days later.

"It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my mother, Joan Rivers. She passed peacefully at 1:17 p.m. surrounded by family and close friends. My son and I would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff of Mount Sinai Hospital for the amazing care they provided for my mother," Melissa said in a Thursday statement released to the media.

"Cooper and I have found ourselves humbled by the outpouring of love, support, and prayers we have received from around the world. They have been heard and appreciated. My mother's greatest joy in life was to make people laugh. Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon."
