L'Wren Scott's family want Utah funeral

L'Wren Scott's family want her to be buried in Utah.
The late fashion designer, who was found dead in her New York City apartment on Monday (17.03.14) morning in an apparent suicide, was adopted as a child by a devout Mormon couple and her siblings are hoping she will be laid to rest in her hometown where her close-knit family can mourn her peacefully.
L'Wren was particularly close to her older brother Randall Bambrough and her sister Jan Shane.
Rob Shane, her brother-in-law, told the New York Daily News: ''Jan is hoping that Randy will do the right thing and bring L'Wren back to Utah. The family has a plot at a cemetery in North Ogden, and she would like her sister buried by their parents.''
He revealed that Jan physically collapsed when she discovered L'Wren's passing, after the tragic news broke that the 49-year-old designer had been found hanging from a scarf on a doorknob by her assistant.
Rob added: ''She was devastated. L'Wren and Jan were very close growing up and really up until the death of their mother six years ago.
''She often told Jan she was envious of Jan having a family. I remember Jan saying, 'You have fame and fortune.' But L'Wren said, 'Yes, but you have a family.' ''
He also confirmed that no funeral plans had yet been made for the former model, who divided her time between New York, London and Paris with her partner of 13 years, Sir Mick Jagger.
The 70-year-old rocker is struggling to come to terms with his loss and has been very distant since hearing the news, his Rolling Stones bandmate Charlie Watts has revealed.
