Kate Spade's funeral will be held Thursday in Kansas City where the designer was born.

The Kansas City Star reports that services for Spade are planned for 3 p.m. at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Redemptorist Church, The Associated Press reported. Her father, Frank Brosnahan, says it's the same church where Spade's grandparents wed.

Spade was found dead by suicide on June 5 in her New York City home. She was 55 and had a teenage daughter and husband.

Spade was working as an accessories editor at Mademoiselle magazine when she launched her company with husband Andy Spade in 1993.

In lieu of flowers, the family has asked for donations to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals or a Kansas City animal shelter.
