Family members such as Carrie’s daughter and Scream Queens actress Billie Lourd, 24, her dad and Carrie’s ex Bryan Lourd, and Carrie’s brother and Debbie’s only other child Todd Fisher attended the service.
Stars Taylor Lautner, Jamie Lee Curtis, Gwyneth Paltrow, Meg Ryan, Alex Trebekand Meryl Streep were among the 125 guests in attendance. Streep is considered “part of the family,” a source previously told E! News.
The intimate yet casual afternoon gathering was reminiscent of the parties Fisher often threw in her home. “Billie wanted the people her mother loved to gather in that living room one last time,” a family source told People.
Lourd and Streep, who also performed Fisher’s favorite song “Happy Days Are Here Again,” were also a few of the handful of loved ones who delivered a eulogy at the memorial.

“The only things missing were Carrie and Debbie,” the family insider continued. “Debbie would sit in the corner, and everyone there would come up and pay homage. Even the biggest stars were starstruck by her. Carrie would walk around barefoot with a can of Coca-Cola, making sure everyone was having a good time, saying the funniest things you’ve ever heard.”
Carrie and Debbie will be buried next to each other “and among friends,” including actress Bette Davis and pianist Liberace, at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in L.A.
“We’ll have quite an event,” a source told E! News exclusively. “Anybody who loved Carrie and worked with Carrie will be invited to that big event.”
Todd recently talked to ABC News about Carrie and Debbie and how his family has been coping with the tragic loss.
After her mother and grandmother’s deaths, Billie had said on Instagram this week, “Receiving all of your prayers and kind words over the past week has given me strength during a time I thought strength could not exist. There are no words to express how much I will miss my Abadaba and my one and only Momby. Your love and support means the world to me.
