Home and Away actress Jessica Falkholt’s Funeral to be Held on Monday at the Same Church her Parents and Sister were Farewelled

A funeral service for much-loved actress Jessica Falkholt will be held on Monday at the same church where her parents and younger sister were farewelled a week ago.

The former Home and Away star died on Wednesday from injuries she suffered in the horrific Boxing Day car crash that also claimed the lives of her parents Lars, 69, and Vivian, 60, and sister Annabelle, 21.

Jessica, 28, spent almost three weeks in a coma in St George Hospital before doctors switched off her life support system – just one day after her family’s funeral.

The brave TV star continued fighting for life before she passed away on Wednesday morning.

A relative told Daily Mail Australia family, friends and her Home and Away colleagues will return to St Mary’s Catholic Church at Concord on Monday, at 12pm, for what is expected to be a star-studded funeral.

Devastated family members told Daily Mail Australia after Jessica’s death that while it was a sad time, they were at peace knowing the actress is now ‘back with her family’.

‘We’re all sad but she is with her family now. Her mum was her biggest supporter so I am sure she is in her arms,’ the relative said.

‘It’s an odd feeling, we always knew it was going to happen but no matter what it’s a shock.’

Tributes poured in for the actress from TV stars following the announcement, with a host of her former Home and Away colleagues expected to be among mourners at the packed funeral.

Jessica’s former Home And Away co-star Pia Miller shared a picture of the pair on set alongside the caption: ‘Farewell wonderful Jess.’

Summer Bay star James Stewart tweeted: ‘R.I.P Jessica Falkholt. Such a beautiful and talented soul- taken so soon and so tragically.’

Hundreds of mourners packed into St Mary’s Church earlier in January to farewell the parents and youngest member of the Falkholt family.

Jessica and Annabelle’s uncle Paul Ponticello told mourners that Christmas would be a time that forever haunts their family.

‘It is a day that will be difficult to erase from our memory,’ he said.

‘Their lives on this earth ending on a highway makes absolutely no sense.’

Craig Whitall, who was at the wheel of the 4WD that collided with their vehicle in the head-on crash, was also killed in the inferno.

The 50-year-old serial traffic offender Craig Whitall was reportedly on his way home from a Nowra methadone clinic when the crash occurred.
