She reportedly had at least part of her ashes scattered privately in the waters off Hawaii last Saturday.
But Beth Chapman’s family are gearing up for a crowd at her Colorado funeral, which will be held on July 13 in Aurora, just outside Denver.
Sources close to Beth’s family told TMZ on Saturday that her surviving relatives are determined to make the memorial fan-friendly, reaching out to hotels in Aurora to hammer out discounted rates for people attending the service, and working with police to plan security and crowd control.
The wife of Duane ‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’ Chapman wanted her send-off in her home state to be accessible for everyone, according to the site, so her family is also putting together a live stream for those that can’t make it in person.
Dog Chapman and Beth lived in Hawaii and Colorado and the services in Hawaii and on the mainland are part of Beth’s final wishes; she died aged 51 on June 26 in a Honolulu hospital after a long battle with cancer.
She planned her memorial services before her death and explained to her family that she wanted funerals open to the public in both Hawaii and Colorado, the states she lived in with her husband.
The Colorado funeral, which is being held at the Heritage Christian Center in Aurora, will be open to the public.
Doors will open at 1 p.m. with the event lasting from 2-4 p.m.
The cancer began in her throat in 2017 and was excised, but came back in her lungs by last year, and last month she was placed in a medically induced coma.
Three of Beth Chapman’s daughters took to social media to publicly mourn her following her death after the two-year battle with stage II throat cancer.
‘I can’t believe it even happened,’ Bonnie’s 26-year-old daughter Cecily with ex-husband Keith A. Barmore wrote on Instagram last Sunday.
‘Only if I could have her back.’
The platinum-blonde bounty hunter’s 20-year-old daughter Bonnie Joanne with husband Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman wrote: ‘So thankful to call you my mother. Rest In Peace, mom. I love you so much.’
