Jenni Rivera service Wednesday at Gibson Amphitheatre

Jenni-Rivera-nbc4.jpgJenni Rivera's family is asking to be left alone for a private burial, but on Wednesday from 10 a.m. to noon there will be a public memorial service at the amphitheater in Universal CityWalk. Her minister brother, Pedro Rivera Jr., will lead the service. The family is calling the event a "celestial graduation." "The Rivera family appreciates all the love given to our beloved Jenni Rivera who graduated on December 9th and now rests in the arms of our Lord," the family said.

The Rivera family requested that in lieu of flowers at the memorial, donations be made to the Jenni Rivera Love Foundation. Her charity offers support services to single mothers and victims of both domestic and sexual abuse.

Contrary to reports, there is no public event scheduled in Long Beach, where she was raised.
