The family of actress Natasha Richardson will hold a private funeral for her in upstate New York this afternoon. The services will take place in the Hudson Valley, the same town where she wed actor Liam Neeson and raised their two sons.

The service will be held at 2 p.m. at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Millbrook, N.Y., with the burial in a nearby cemetery.

Church Vicar Edward Johnston said the service would be only for family and close friends.

Richardson's mahogany coffin — emblazoned with an Irish claddagh symbol, signifying love, friendship and loyalty — was driven Saturday from the couple's  Manhattan townhouse to their 19th century farmhouse near Millbrook where she had married Neeson in July 1994.

Richardson, 45, died Wednesday, two days after hitting her head in a freak skiing accident on a beginner's slope. She and Neeson had two sons: Michael, 13, and Daniel, 12.
