Update, 4:17 p.m.: According to Sgt. Thomas Lorenz, PIO for Glendale, California, a "small service" will take place today for family and friends of Elizabeth Taylor, who died Wednesday at the age of 79, at Forest Lawn Cemetery at 2 p.m. PT.
Lorenz told CNN that there will be no procession, no hearse and no motorcade. Attendees will drive into Forest Lawn in their own vehicles, and "just a few dozen" people are expected.
There were earlier reports that Taylor would be buried in the Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles next to her mother and father and near other stars like Marilyn Monroe, but a rep told CNN earlier that details of her funeral were to stay private.
Fans will still get their chance to pay respects to Taylor, however, as details of a memorial service will be announced at a later date. The family did ask that instead of flowers, contributions be made to the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS foundation.
